Several of us have been the instruments in the vision for this endeavor and this site. First and foremost is our Heavenly Father and His only begotten Son and our Savior, Christ Jesus. Over the period of the past year, most especially, we have felt the stirring of God's agency in our lives to move ever closer to Him especially in the works that we have done here on Earth in these times that we now find ourselves in. These are trying times for our country and our world. It is only in Him and with Him that we find utility and focus for our endeavors.
The several of us who have felt called and led to create this site and endeavor have found ourselves over the past year or two to be heavily involved in the social sphere of government and politics....this by way of the tea party movement. We are also devoutly Christian and heavily involved in our churches. Due to this involvement in both of these spheres, we have observed a great need and desire among many in this country to return to a Fundamental Truth that seems to have been misplaced or lost.....that of a Biblical World View that was the dream of the first Europeans who first settled this beautiful continent, later called America. This Biblical World View was sacrificed for by many who have come before us....they dreamed it and created it in reality by their devotion to an Almighty who would have them be truly free and prosperous. We now find ourselves in a tremendous struggle between clashing worlds.....that of the Biblical World View that this country was founded upon and is the hope of all peoples who truly desire to be free, and that of the World View, that has been the curse of God's creation since the Fall. The line in the sand has been blurred between these two spheres, these two world views. God's people find themselves mired in varying ways in this confusion. And there are still many lost in the World who have not found salvation and peace that only God and Christ Jesus can bring.
It is our hope, our prayer that this site can be a safe haven in this horrible conflict whereby the Children of God and the Leaders of the Church can freely dwell, meditate, study, network, and create. It will be safe as it will be continually bathed in prayer for you. Here, you can freely participate....by reading others' articles, contributing your own articles, networking with other like-minded pastors and church leaders, and know that what occurs here remains here. Confidence shall not be breached without first having received permission. We will beg each of you to respect the others' privacy and disclosures. Here we ask you to bring your concerns and fears for your world and your church flock that we might locate aid for you, your people, and this ailing world.
The name for this site, The Black Robe Regiment, has been chosen for it's historical context (which will be more clearly defined on another page). It represents a group of pulpit ministers who were extremely active during the American Revolution. It was in the pulpits and the churches of that period where people obtained much of the news of the day. It was this group of individuals from the pulpit who assisted in igniting the souls and hearts of the men and women during that time to rally in defense of a society who was being tyrannized by a despotic government, that was creating an environment where freedom and liberty would no longer exist.
Disclaimer: We are in no way associated with any other "Black Robe Regiment" group or site. We hold no affiliation with any other group who would claim that name. We are in no way associated with any militia or organization who would call their people to armed conflict, no anarchist group, or any other by any closely related name. We are devoutly Christian and concerned folks who only desire a forum for Church leaders and pastors to discuss the issues of the day in safety and in peace. We are also not directly affiliated with the initiatives of Glenn Beck and David Barton. Those can be found here. We are however traveling parallel paths to the same end, that of restoring the role of the Church in our secular society and glorifying the Lord our God in all that we do.
