Surge Summary: America has abandoned its biblical roots and will find, as did Israel, that a terrible consequence will follow … unless, those who recognize this grim diagnosis rise up and take the offense on matters of righteousness and wisdom.

Charles David ‘Chuck’ Todd [born 1972] is the current moderator of NBC’s Meet The Press. He worked for the 1992 presidential campaign of populist liberal Democrat Senator Tom Harkin, who received broad support from organized labor and the Left. Todd resides in Northern Virginia with his wife Kristian Denny Todd and their two children. She is co-founder of Maverick Strategies & Mail, which provides direct mail and consulting services for Democratic candidates and progressive causes.
In June 2019, Todd moderated the first pair of the 2020 Democratic Party presidential debates along with Jose Diaz-Balart, Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, and Rachel Maddow. Owing to his proclivity for garrulity, Todd himself spoke more than all but four of the presidential candidates. He asked long-winded questions and then requested candidates to respond “in one or two words!”
Todd is a congregant of Temple Rodef Shalom [Reform synagogue] in Falls Church, Virginia. A decidedly liberal branch of Judaism, Reform Judaism is characterized by a diminished emphasis on Biblical law, but great openness to progressive values.
Secularists like Todd appear to place little value on Scripture. Yahweh’s feeding of two million Israelites in the wilderness over a period of 40 years is filed under the category of ‘Who cares?’, as if it’s all folklore and unsubstantiated beliefs. Yet, feeding 2 to 3 million people requires enormous amounts of food, on a daily basis.
The Quartermaster General of the U.S. Army reportedly estimated that it would take 1,500 tons of food each day, two freight trains each a mile long, to feed the wandering Israelites. 11,000,000 gallons of water would also be required while every place they camped was roughly the size of Rhode Island. But then the big hurdle, crossing the Red Sea in one night would take 5,000 people shoulder to shoulder.
From Abraham to Malachi, a period of 1,500 years, God frequently revealed His mind and will. Each principle, doctrine, and ethic is plainly laid out in the Old Testament; all it takes to receive Yahweh’s blessings is obedience.
In view of ancient Israel’s obedience, it’s hard to make sense of American Christendom’s acquiescence to secularism’s removal of Scripture from public education in the 1960s. And as if that weren’t enough, to remain quiet a decade later when the Ten Commandments were banned from public schools, courthouses, and government buildings; all as part of Satan’s ploy to destroy America.
Solomon forewarned in Proverbs 2:13-15 that “those who forsake the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness; who find joy in doing evil and delight in the perversity of evil, whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways” will violate God’s covenant. The wicked, in the words of Jewish Hebrew scholar Michael V. Fox, “not only do evil for the sake of its supposed rewards, they also positively enjoy it.”
Separation from Yahweh, it says in Isaiah 3:4, will result in judgement where God “will make mere lads their leaders, and children shall rule over them.” The reference to ‘mere lads’ and ‘children’ is not so much with respect to age as in regard to ability for leadership, hence: “I will commit the land to the government of weak and imbecile leaders. This would naturally occur when the wise and great were removed.”1
Ecclesiastes 10:16 also gives fair warning: “Woe to you, O land, when your king is a child, And your princes feast in the morning!” [NKJV]
Last week Texas Senator Ted Cruz remarked that President Biden lacks the “mental faculties” to negotiate with Republicans on the debt limit. Cruz sounded the alarm that “radical children” [i.e., White House staff] are prepared to force the U.S. government into default.2
Last Sunday, Meet The Press’ Chuck Todd interviewed 2024 Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, insisting on: “Are you confident that you know that gender is binary as you’re describing it? Are you confident it isn’t a spectrum?” www.youtube.com/watch?v=jK-nxtturyk
Regarding the issue of ‘binary’, there can be no doubt that God created two sexes, male and female, as Genesis 1:27 attests: “God created man in his own image. In God’s image he created him; male and female he created them.”
In respect to the alleged existence of a ‘gender spectrum’, Dr. Linda Johnston, M.D., has this to say: “The criteria that the trans ideologues use to determine sexuality are nothing more than qualities, interests, feelings, preferences that all humans are capable of having. The ‘spectrum’ they are so glibly confident at pointing to as meaning that sexuality is nuanced between the two ‘traditional’ poles of male and female actually refers to the wide spectrum of human experience in life. Replacing the physical frame with a frame of mind is wholly convenient for those trying to make the case that what a person ‘feels’ inside determines sex rather than DNA and physical biology.”
Behavior and activity that offend God brings judgment and anarchy on a nation. Jewish Hebrew scholar Fox notes: “The transgression of a land – widespread, systemic violations of law – brings on anarchy, both as its natural consequence and as its fitting punishment, and with anarchy comes an oppressive multiplicity of rulers and factions.”
This brings us to Matt Walsh and his speech last month to the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at New Mexico State University. During the Q&A, two self-identified male transgender audience members decided to stump for their religion. Their back-and-forth registered 20 million views on Twitter in less than 24 hours. Watch:
American Christendom has played defense for so long that Christians don’t know any more what offense looks like. Playing offense will take time as cultural transformation requires knowledge, experience, expertise, and wisdom coupled with engagement. To make the equivalent of what secularism has done to public education over the last 100 years or so, let’s suppose that teachers over the next decade secretly begin baptizing kids at school and hiding it from parents – what would be the Left’s reaction?
What has happened to a nation founded “for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith” greatly exceeds Christian bounds of reason and moderation.
Thankfully, Gideons and Rahabs are entering the public square.
The next Great Awakening is beginning.
