One conservative political commentator calls America “the greatest nation on God’s green earth,” and we agree. It is backsliding spiritually, degrading morally, its liberties are under attack, and there are many woes, as we point out regularly in this publication, but in the broad context of the world today America remains unique. We would mention just a few examples.

There is more personal freedom than any other nation. America’s famed Bill of Rights has been weakened by activist courts, but there is still great liberty in comparison with other nations.

There is more true justice than in the vast majority of nations. 

There are more New Testament churches and born again Christians.

There are more economic opportunities.

There is more equality, more opportunities for “minorities.”

There is more freedom for gun ownership and thus self-defense.

There are more private schools and home schools than any other nation.

There is a much larger conservative constituency than other countries. By conservative we mean such views as pro-life, pro traditional marriage, less government regulation, anti-globalism, anti-socialism, pro freedom of religion and freedom of speech, educational freedom, and effective immigration control. America has a very large and aggressive conservative media. About half of the nation voted for Donald Trump and his conservative agenda. Conservatives are represented politically by the Republican party, which picked up at least nine seats in the House of Representatives, “putting them in close range to regain the House in 2022.” Republicans fully control the governments of 24 states (called a trifecta), compared with 15 states for Democrats, and control both chambers of the state legislatures in another 7 states, for a total of 31. (In 1975, Democrats held 37 trifectas, so Republicans have gained considerable power at the state level over the past 45 years.) In 2020, Republicans increased their control of the 99 state legislative bodies from 58 to 62. This is more than at any point in the nation’s history. The Republican Party is steadily increasing its support among blacks and Hispanics. The Republican Party is not godly, does not submit to God’s Word, is not a national saviour, but it is much more pro-Christian values than the vast majority of political parties in this fallen world.

These are only a few of prominent blessings that exist in America even in its growing apostasy which are almost without peer among the nations today.

Other items we sell to help fund our expensive literature and foreign church planting ministries. Way of Life's content falls into two categories: sharable and non-sharable.

Things we do not want copied and distributed are "Store" items like the Fundamental Baptist Digital Library, print editions of our books, electronic editions of the books that we sell, the videos that we sell, etc. The items have taken years to produce at enormous expense in time and money, and we use the income from sales to help fund the ministry. We trust that your Christian honesty will preserve the integrity of this policy. "For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward" (1 Timothy 5:18). Questions?
