I just completed reading a book written back in 1967 by H. Verlan Andersen, Many Are Called, But Few Are Chosen. A quick read, only 83 pages from cover to cover; about the amount of time it takes to watch the movie Avatar or Titanic.
Don’t let the title fool you, it’s not just for scripture thumpers; this book is a warning to every American who believes in standing up for our Constitutional form of government. It is available in PDF format if you want to save a few dollars; or, since the book is out of print, it is available as an archived book via, of all places, Archive Publishers .
If you want to understand how our government is being transformed into a communist/socialist/statist society, one which is at the other end of the spectrum from our Constitutional Republic, then this is a must read. It is straightforward in comparing socialism with Satan’s plan to enslave mankind while at the same time showing God’s stamp of approval given to our Constitution and those who were instrumental in writing this sacred document. We in our day are no different than other free people who at one time inhabited this land; the same pitfalls which took the ancients down have already become entrenched in our own government.
“That we are in the process of polluting this land is plain for all to see. Nowhere is it more apparent than in our laws and our governments. The corruption of the principles of the Constitution by the adoption of the welfare state practices advocated by the Communists has been pointed out herein. Our living prophet in his recent statement concerning the position of the Church on Communism has warned us. He speaks of the alarming conditions that are rapidly advancing about us. Those cannot be misinterpreted by anyone willing to listen.”
He reminded us how the Book of Mormon explained an eerily similar situation:
“And now behold, I say unto you, that the foundation of the destruction of this people is beginning to be laid by the unrighteousness of your lawyers and your judges. ( Alma 10:27 )”
So much for a teaser; now go read the whole book, consider the information from the standpoint of America in its fallen state as of 2011 and then recall it was written over forty years ago with a certain degree of urgency even then. What are we doing about the threats from within? Are we part of the solution or part of the problem? How we proceed, individually and as a body of freedom blessed countrymen will determine not only the fate of our nation; but our eternal situation as well.
