At Lunch today I read you post “Talking Past One Another”. There is no question America has been and will continue to be a melting pot of nationalities and religions. When a person has a relationship with the Lord God, what takes place in that person’s life is matter of personal faith rather than religion.There is no question that all religions are valid; the question is what the religions validate. Asking a question or taking a stand does not make a person pious. The God of Scripture has allowed America as a nation to be established for His purpose. It is by His grace that people are allowed to worship as they please in America. People argue because they do not have a clear understanding. As a Christian it is not a requirement to bash people over the head with the truth… Just share the truth and let the individual decide using the free will God has provided them. A question come to mind what is justice to you or a person reading this reply. And better yet has the law perverted it.

Contrary to people’s personal beliefs, the God of the Holy Scripture’s institutes all governing authorities. There is no authority for government except that which is given by God In the book of Romans the first chapter states:
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. Romans 13:1-5 (KJV)
When the people resist the authority of God they are, playing Russian roulette with all the chamber’s loaded. In simple English, it is mankind who looses not God. It is Mankind bringing judgment on themselves by resisting the ordinances of God. We are the ones responsible through the ability of free will, which God has provided.
Therefore, what is good, simply put, it is God’s provision for us every day. The success of
When entering congressional office each representative swears for affirms the following oath of office, it has been this way since 1884.
This brings to light a question. Why when charged with the support and defense of our Constitution is it that the politicians walk, further and further away from their support and defense of our Constitution. How much do you know regarding the person you given your vote to? Are you sure that person is properly representing you? Alternatively, do you cast a vote thinking it is impossible to remove a person currently in office? What does your conscience tell you concerning the person for which you are voting?
The choice is yours to make … united we stand and divided we fall
