Thanks be to God for our ultimate, inspired document of national governance, the United States Constitution. Our Constitution has the approval of Heaven and the respect and wonder of those who love its original intent and purpose.
There are some who say the Constitution needs to be changed because it is out of date and times are different. While times are different, the Constitution is and will always remain God’s handiwork. God’s stamp of approval is already on it.
Furthermore, our founding fathers put in place an inspired process to amend the Constitution, if needed. As long as the proper process is followed, we can amend the Constitution all we want.
All flesh are to have liberty and freedom. The Constitution of The United States has secured those blessings. Despite current concerns in the world, the USA remains a beacon of light to the earth.
Our founding fathers studied true principles thoroughly. They felt strongly that this constitution needed to be right and they had one chance to work through each of their individual concerns. It was determined that certain principles supporting a “republic” were needed for the country to succeed. Not a democracy, a republic. Such resoluteness in deciding this type of governmental system came after 180 years of experimentation which began at Jamestown in 1607. The twin principles for the successful beginning of our new country [the USA] and its forever status were and remain liberty and freedom.
Revelation from Heaven came to our founding fathers as they worked out the details of this holy, national record for our country. Henceforth, we are known as a “republic”, aptly named The United States Of America.
There are some in government, at all levels, particularly the federal echelon, who, for decades, have slowly attempted to erode the purity of our beloved Constitution. Those who knowingly change this “heavenly inspired” document of life for our country through subversive or other malevolent means will be accountable to God for the execution of such choices.
We must fight, for however long, to keep our Constitution strong. To do that, we must work to understand its original meaning then voice its virtuous values to all who will listen. Our inspired manuscript of national governance will only work as we remain active in educating ourselves and others on its true meaning and purpose and not some twisted version thereof.
The book titled “The 5000 Year Leap”, by W. Cleon Skousen, is an easy, understandable read for those who wish to leapfrog into comprehending the principles of the Constitution.
I have a father and two brothers who have served our country. I also have a son-in-law who is currently serving and a nephew recently honorably discharged. My brothers, son-in-law and nephew have served or are now serving with distinction and honor. My father has gone home to that God who gave him life. They, among millions of others, are, and have been, valiant soldiers in the cause of freedom. I believe because of their service, our immediate families have an added measure of love and deep respect for the United States of America. They have felt the spirit of our founding fathers and their fight for freedom from England’s King George III and his repressive regime.
We must teach our children what it means to be a patriot. If we want them to catch the spirit of our country’s founding, if we want them to appreciate our soliders’ sacrifices, if we want them to understand this vital portion of our history, we must teach them. It is our responsibility and spiritual mandate to do so. It is their responsibility to humbly listen, learn, retain and teach for future generations to come. This is part of the preferred cycle of life.
War is horrible. Often the unthinkable and unimaginable take place. Currently I have two friends who battle the despicable leftovers of conflict in war. They are less than their former selves. They brave every day and fight most nights to sleep normally. Because of their familiarity with war, discussions rarely take place between us regarding that period of time. War is, very reluctantly, an unfortunate, occasional, necessary evil.
Despite that occasional unwanted necessity, it is wonderful to know we have a prepared force in defense of this country, if needed. We just need a chief executive that loves his country. Every time Obama says “GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” I want to barf. Why, you may ask? My answer: How can you have a progressive or socialist ideology and agenda at the White House and honestly utter “GOD BLESS AMERICA” at anytime? In my opinion, you cannot. At that point, for me, every time that phrase is uttered it becomes “dishonest speech.”
He has left the phrase “one nation under God” out, at least seven (7) times when reciting the pledge of allegiance. Why does he do that?
To become deeply patriotic. To understand America’s true history. To feel the spirit of and learn about the constitution and our Bill of Rights. To remember the purpose of our flag as we see it waving through the winds atop a flagpole. To gain an acute appreciation for our founding fathers and their inspired lives. To recognize the United States as a God fearing nation and to promote its exceptionalism. To assist the United States in helping its beacon of light become sharper for her people and even sharper for the rest of the world. These are some of the feelings and requirements borne of liberty, freedom and duty.
I am so grateful for my father, brothers, son-in-law and nephew. I am so grateful to everyone who has fought and still fights for our liberty. I cannot express enough thanks to all who have served. You are some of my greatest unknown friends.
