Ring the Bell for Liberty

Ring the Bell for Liberty with Four Ways to Celebrate Independence Day!

Americans gather together with friends and family to celebrate America’s Independence, often with food and fireworks! This Independence Day, you can bring more than just nostalgia to your gathering with four ways to celebrate!

Remember
Take time to read through first-hand accounts of our struggle for Independence. Ideas include the letters of John & Abigail Adams.
“I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.” – excerpt of a letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams.

Recall

Have you ever wondered why we have a Liberty Bell? Why would we ring the bell for liberty? Learn more about why we ring the bell for liberty with this excerpt from The Mighty Works of God: Liberty and Justice.
“In colonial times, various means were used to communicate news. Messengers were sometimes sent to cry out the news in the towns and villages. Often the town hall bell or church bell was rung to call the people together to announce news. Such was the use of the bell in the old State House in Philadelphia, 1776, as it pealed forth the news of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.”

Remembering the Price He Paid

Remembering the Price He Paid

CalvaryLast night I had the privilege of enjoying the Passion Play presented by Northside Baptist Church in Elkhart, Indiana. My heart was stirred with the beautiful music and retelling of the great sacrifice Christ made for each of us in His death on the cross, but then the glorious resurrection which completed the payment for our sins.

This wonderful presentation reminded me again of why Christ must be the focal point of all of our teaching. During His life on this earth, Christ’s followers thought he had come to set up an earthly kingdom, but He had come for something much greater.

Christ came to change the hearts of men and gave to each of us the means of His government in our lives and actions. This “internal” government brought changes which literally “turned the world upside down.” With Christ and Christianity, man could govern his own actions and have less need for external government.

This change took centuries to bring forth a nation which was built upon the idea that man could govern himself.

My prayer is that Christians will remember Christ’s great sacrifice and the wonderful liberty He gives to us first internally and then, as American Christians, the nation which was designed to protect that liberty. While bombarded on every side with “man’s ideas”, let’s remember Christ and not forget our heritage. Though men may deny Him, we must protect and preserve the Biblical principles of our land.

May God give each of you a blessed Easter season.

Christmas Greetings from The Pilgrim Institute

The joy of Christmas is found in exalting Christ. As we think about our individual lives and our families, we marvel at the way Christ works on behalf of His people.  

Keeping Christ the focus of our lives is tremendously important. As a ministry, it is always a blessing to hear that teaching the truths of Christianity has changed a person’s life. A ministry friend recently shared an account that confirmed the value of our teaching. In the course of a conversation at work, a co-worker recalled his education and described it as being from the principle approach. Being well-acquainted with our family, the friend asked her co-worker if his teachers and education had come from Pilgrim Institute. As she expected, his answer was, “yes.” 

It has been about 20 years since this young man was taught by Pilgrim Institute, but he continues to value what he learned. His story could likely be repeated by many others-those who have directly received Pilgrim Institute training, and those who received teaching from a parent, teacher, pastor or friend who had received Pilgrim Institute training.

As the Lord continues to lead the ministry forward, we believe the message of Biblical teaching will equip many others to see the difference Christ and Christianity can make in the hearts of individuals and in the future of our nation. The battle for our nation has only intensified in recent years. As we move forward, it is important to remember that the only solutions are the Biblical principles of individual and local self government.

We are looking forward to the new ministry outreaches scheduled to be launched early in 2011:

  • A blog designed specifically to lead new contacts through the process of discovering what the principle approach offers for families, educators, and concerned citizens
  • Pilgrim Institute training offered online 
  • In addition, we have the opportunity to pursue another publicity campaign promoting the Mighty Works of God history curriculum for children. A long-time ministry friend has compiled a list of influential people and organizations who might take an interest in promoting the books. Special funding will be required in order for the campaign to take place, so we are praying for the needed finances. The 2010 publicity was helpful, and we believe this campaign would be even more promising.

Every activity of the Pilgrim Institute ministry is made possible through prayer, financial support, and the important involvement of our ministry friends.

Knowing that you value the principles of liberty, would you prayerfully consider joining with us in ministry for the coming year? The ministry is supported through the gifts of friends who share the vision and believe that teaching the message of Biblical thinking is the only antidote for the secularism that is overtaking both families and our nation.

If you would like to make a gift, you may make a contribution online.

Please know that a special end-of-year gift or regular financial support would truly be a blessing.

If you’d like to communicate with us regarding this opportunity, we would be glad to hear from you. Email us at Info@PilgrimInstitute.org, or call us at (574) 277-1789.

 

The Blessings of Liberty

The blessings of liberty in our nation are predicated upon distinctive, Biblical principles. These principles are revealed in our nation’s Christian History and reflected in our Biblical form of government.

As these principles have been forgotten, our nation has drifted from her strong foundation. Since 1979, Pilgrim Institute has offered a continuing training program for individuals desiring to reclaim America’s Christian History and relate a Biblical phosophy of government to every aspect of daily living. This training has demonstrated its effectiveness in the Christian home, the Christian community, and the home or school classroom.
