The South Must Rise Again is a sermon by Pator John Weaver. It is one of the best sermons I have listened to for a long time. I will summarize and then you can take a listen. It is about an hour long, but well worth the listen.
Lincoln was the first president to ignore the Constitution of the United States and to directly ignore the orders of Congress. The Civil War was Lincoln's war and he went so far as to imprison congressmen that disagreed, including those from northern states. The Confederate Union was a union of states willing to stand for Christ. This was a religious war as well as a war for liberty and freedom. The leading theologians of the time were in the South. Lincoln sought to destroy the South. He was the first president to enact executive orders. The Civil War changed our government from a Constitutional Republic to a democratic empire. The Unitarian principles that were prevalent in the north, that man needs no Savior and has the power of redemption for themselves,had invaded our churches ever since. We now see the ultra liberal school of thought that all religions have their way to heaven. This heresy proclaims that none need Jesus Christ, he is just one of many ways. The South must rise again in order to defeat this heresy and once again stand on the principle that Jesus Christ alone is the way to salvation. The south must rise again to restore the republic that we all hold so dear. Lincoln allowed and proposed the growth of our federal government and the idea that the government must take care of the people instead of the people taking care of themselves and the government. Lincoln did not preserve the union he utterly destroyed it. We now see disasters in which the people do not cry out for the help of God almighty, but instead call out for the help of the government. The people of this country have replaced God with the government. The south must rise again as what it once was, the bastion of the Biblical faith and the citadel for the Constitutional republic. There is a reason we are called the Bible belt and we must be willing to stand up and defend such an honor. This is a must listen to sermon, especially with so many states declaring sovereignty. This sermon explains the history and biblical reasons behind why we need to go through this act. May God be with us all.
