Returning Moral Clarity To American Life

We are confronted with a dangerous enemy. The erosion of the American family and the moral values that define us as a people and a nation have been under attack for more than 50 years. Redefining what constitutes marriage, accepting that gender is determined by personal choice, excluding the voice and choice of people who appose changes in America’s moral history. Taking God out of every resemblance of government, schools, and public offices. Degrading the United States until it no longer resembles its former visage intended by the framers of our Constitution.

This generation has no idea of the former glory of America when people really cared about their neighbors and lived together in peace. The line between morality and immorality has been eroded until its barrier is no loner detectable by young people today.

It is seldom understood why morality is so important to the survival of our nation. Only when we examine the history of the world do we discover that no nation has survived which permitted perversion to be normalized, and the sanctity of human life diminished.

We Are Not Going To Agree On Everything, We Should Respect Each Other's Right To Disagree On Anything

COPYRIGHT WARNING

For reasons that are not always understood, people in the United States have come to the place where they must convince other people to think as they do. From the beginning, our forefathers understood that people are not going to agree and therefore they should give each other the right to express their opinion without fear of suppression from those who disagree. Continue reading “We Are Not Going To Agree On Everything, We Should Respect Each Other's Right To Disagree On Anything”

Pretending That God Does Not Exist In Order To Live Any Way You Choose

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Over the course of 40 years, I have heard just about every excuse for why a person will not receive Jesus as their Savior. In all of the reasons that people give for their unwillingness, they all boil down to one source: A desire to live a certain life that they have chosen, without the interference of religion.

There are many who claim that there is no proof for the existence of God. This is perhaps the most preposterous excuse, considering the massive evidence that is available today to prove that God must exist. In these cases, those who make such assertions, do so from willing ignorance. While asserting that no proof exists for God, under investigation, we find that these persons have not done the necessary work themselves to determine whether or not God actually does exist. In an overwhelming majority, most people who make such claims, use the comments and quotes of other atheists, not their own personal research.

I have not met a single atheists who has taken an academic approach to their atheism by sincerely exploring all the facts which empirically prove that God must exist. The arguments that are frequently given are at best; insufficient, at worst; only taken from the words of other atheists. If you listen to persons who are incorrect in their hypothesis or conclusions, then your hypothesis and conclusions will also be incorrect.

The United States Constitution And Gay Rights

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Where did the laws of the United States originate? To what source did the framers of the Constitution draw their inferences in establishing the rights of citizens for America?

Before the founding of America; before the Constitution existed, there was a standard for all laws that was highly revered and looked upon as the only authoritative source for human law: “Blackstone’s Commentary on the Law.”[1]

When the men who penned the words for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States, were looking for a just basis for laws that would unite the colonies into one nation, one people, and government, they used the principles of Blackstone’s as the foundation for these laws.

We see evidence for the impact that Blackstone’s Commentary on the Law had on the framers of our Constitution when we examine the words of the Declaration of Independence:

“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

This term: “the laws of nature and nature’s God,” came directly from the text of Blackstone’s and is specific in its description for the origin of valid law.*

In this article, we will explore the major precepts of Blackstone’s, in order to understand the mind-set of the framers of the Constitution, when they were seeking to institute the just laws which would convey liberty to all people who would inhabit this land.

The Words of 52 Christian Men Who Founded the United States of America

The debate: whether the founders of the United States intended that our country would be founded as a Christian Nation, deriving our laws  from the Bible and the Laws of God, is settled by our discovery of who these men were. As we read through the actual statements of these men, we realize that their entire purpose for framing the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, was to allow those who believe in God, to worship freely, unencumbered by the newly formed government of America.

1. John Adams

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; JUDGE; DIPLOMAT; ONE OF TWO SIGNERS OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS; SECOND PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.1 Continue reading “The Words of 52 Christian Men Who Founded the United States of America”
