In honor of our seventh president’s birthday today (March 15) — and as a way of pushing back against cancel culture — I am sharing a coloring page based on one of Andrew Jackson’s quotes.
I don’t agree with everything President Jackson ever did or said. But I fully endorse the declaration featured in this free printable. “The Bible is the rock upon which our Republic rests.”
If the USA seems shakier today than in generations past, it is not because the Word of God has changed. Jesus Christ, the Living Word, is “the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)
To the degree that America strays from those timeless principles, she is in danger of crumbling.
Not because her foundations have eroded — that Rock is as solid and sure as ever — but because so many elected officials, activist judges, tenured university professors, and gullible voters have decided the solid footing on which our country was built is not good enough.
So they’ve done everything in their power to tear down our system of government, brick by brick. And what they’re cobbling together to replace it is being constructed, not on the unchanging truth of Scripture, but on the shifting sands of cancel culture, revisionist history, and political correctness.
It’s a sad thing to see. But the situation is not hopeless. Because, as Christians, we can individually choose to rest upon and live according to the never-changing Word of God, no matter what the rest of our nation or the world chooses to do.
