John Quincy Adams once said:
The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.
America was built on personal freedom with responsibility. Freedom of religion and conscience were individual rights our founding fathers cherished and insisted should always be protected. Many of us have been warning that we are on the brink of becoming a fascist nation where religious liberties would soon disappear–if you are a Christian.
Today, we discuss the public university system in America. Yes, it has become a hostile environment for Christians where moral relativism and political correctness trumps truth, but disciples are being made and there are opportunities all around us for evangelism due in part to a complete lack of spiritual foundation many people have today.
Christian ministries also face political challenges these days on College Campuses. We’re joined by Jeremy Rush of His House Christian Fellowship.

Great quote for the Fourth of July weekend from Plymouth Colony Governor, William Bradford:
Having undertaken, for the Glory of God and advancement of the Christian Faith and Honor of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the First Colony… they fell upon their knees and blessed the God of heaven …
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16
but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; 1 Peter 3:15
Such confidence we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:4-6
Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. 6 Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person. Colossians 4:5-6
