A Prophetic Word!




At the conclusion of last night’s elections, I keep thinking of something I heard Adrian Rogers say years ago which today I recognize as extremely prophetic….

“Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the
wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working
for, another person must work for without receiving. The government
can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take
from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have
to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when
the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s
going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any
nation.” – Late Adrian Rogers
