Destroyed For Lack of Knowledge

| November 1, 2011

Lack of knowledge is the #1 thing destroying America today. Instead of being a city upon a hill to give light unto the world, like our Founding Fathers intended, most of our people wander in darkness in need of light themselves (John 1:4). They no longer study God’s Word chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse like they used to. Not only that, but most are completely ignorant of America’s rich Christian heritage as well. For in public schools across our land our children are now taught multiculturalism and diversity in place of the Word of God.

Is there any wonder why America is crumbling to pieces?

Hosea 4 – My People perish for lack of knowledge

It isn’t a lack of worldly knowledge that’s destroying our people. They have plenty of that. With the Internet now, they can access just about anything they need to know. It’s a lack of Biblical knowledge that’s destroying them.

Just as God cried out through Hosea the prophet when He said,

Hear the word of the LORD…for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land…

My People are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee… -Hosea 4:1,6

Oh, we’ve got a lot a people who still attend church, wave their hands in the air, and sing praises. But how many churches break down and teach God’s Word chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse? Not many, because if there were, America wouldn’t be perishing today due to a lack of knowledge.

The Holy Bible


The Bible as the textbook

In America’s early days, believe it or not, the Bible was actually the textbook in our public schools. It was used to teach morality, discipline, self-government, history etc. I can tell you this for sure. No man, or group of men can write a textbook that even compares to it. The Bible is it. It’s the instruction manual for life, and its author is the Creator himself.

Why would anyone be foolish enough to reject it? I can’t answer that. I suppose they enjoy lacking in knowledge (Prov 1:7).

But also in use at the time of America’s beginnings, was a little book called The New-England Primer, a book that combined studying the Bible with learning the alphabet, vocabulary, and reading poetry and prose. Try just bringing either of these books to many public schools now and your kids will be punished. Or worse yet, EXPELLED!

Hey if you’re going to send your kids off to public school, at least dedicate some time each week to teach them at home. Teach them the Bible, teach them true American History, and teach them the truth about what’s happening in the world today. Because if you don’t, Satan will brainwash them just like all of the other children he has throughout our education systems.

Here is a link where you can find many valuable homeschooling resources.

Scroll on through, pick some out, and start teaching your kids today! Don’t’ let them lack in knowledge.


“These words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” –Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Arm yourself with knowledge

Founding Father John Quincy Adams once said,

“My custom is, to read four to five chapters every morning immediately after rising from my bed. It employs about an hour of my time…”


“I speak as a man of the world to men of the world; and I say to you, Search the Scriptures! The Bible is the book of all others, to be read at all ages, and in all conditions of human life; not to be read once or twice or thrice through, and then laid aside, but to be read in small portions of one or two chapters every day, and never to be intermitted, unless by some overruling necessity.”

What great advice! And John wasn’t the only one with this habit. Most of our Founders practiced this very same thing. They understood the importance of study. And they took seriously the teachings of Jesus Christ when he said things like,

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” –Matthew 4:4

And in the Lord’s Prayer when referring to spiritual food He said,

“Give us this day our daily bread.” –Matthew 6:11

You see without a consistent intake of this spiritual food, one is doomed to follow the path of destruction. Lack of knowledge is very serious. It eventually leads to spiritual death. For those who lack knowledge of God’s Word, true history, and current events are left vulnerable to the deception of the enemy. Imagine a soldier going out onto a battlefield without any weapons. Someone lacking in knowledge is in the same situation. They’re going to get themselves killed! (Ephesians 6)

Tools for study

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: And with all thy getting get understanding.” –Proverbs 4:7

Throughout our Bible studies and prophecy messages we often post links to books and other resources to help direct our readers to information that will help strengthen their knowledge base. We spend a lot of extra time incorporating these into our studies. And we do so because our primary mission at Christian Overcomers is to educate. You see, many Christians today don’t fall short in a lack of love and compassion towards others. They simply lack in knowledge. And we want to help improve that lack of knowledge by putting in peoples hands the best tools possible. So take advantage of these links when you see them. Click on them.

Almost every book we recommend is a book that I’ve personally read. And these are not just any old books I’ve read, they are hand selected ones I’ve sifted through over about two decades of research.

In fact, we’ve even created a “store” page to make it easy for you. On this one page you’ll find featured most of the great Biblical books and research tools that I refer to in my writings. Fill yourself with knowledge. Stop on by and check them out!

Enter Christian Overcomers’ Bookstore.

There you’ll find books about America in Prophecy, Study Bibles, Interlinear Bibles, books on Ancient History, Bible Commentaries, Old Dictionaries, books on Biblical Mathematics, books on the true meaning of the 12 Signs of the Zodiac, Homeschooling, Marriage, Hebrew and Greek study tools, Christian Finance, Conservative books, and even Emergency Food Supplies. All in one spot.

If you cannot afford to buy many research tools. The most valuable of all of them is the Companion Bible. Get one of these if at all possible. I’ve used The Companion Bible for almost 20 years now. I don’t know what I’d do without it. Well, I’d probably be lacking in knowledge.

Take a look inside and see for yourself how great it is.

Free tools and information

If you cannot afford to purchase any study tools, by following our hyperlinks to other articles and studies we’ve posted, you should be able to gain a wealth of information to help strengthen your knowledge base. And be sure to enter your email address over in the right hand column to subscribe to any new articles we post. We usually post 2 a week.

In addition to that, we post 1 new YouTube Bible Study each week as well. (A chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse teaching) By early next year we hope to increase these to 2-3 new videos a week. Lord willing. You can find our latest YouTube videos up in the right hand column near the top of our blog pages or on our homepage. Be sure to subscribe to these, too.

Another great way of building your knowledge base is to use the free resources available at This site has many great tools. Some of the commentary isn’t all that great, but the Hebrew and Greek study tools and the online search boxes are very helpful, especially if you’re searching for a particular word or phrase in the Bible. I’ve been using this site more and more over the last few years. And it is great.

In conclusion

Don’t allow yourself or your children to perish for a lack of knowledge. I assure you. Satan will try everything he can to disarm you, cut off your food supply, and destroy you. Don’t let him.

Arm yourself with the TRUTH, and FIGHT!
