The Constitution is a byproduct of Christianity

28 Apr

I was never so disappointed in our President when he said that we were not a Christian Nation.  I was very disappointed when I realized that this statement too, was squashed mostly by the media.

 

Christians, mostly pacifists in nature worship at least once a week, pray for each other on an ongoing basis and relate the Word of God at least to each other on a daily basis.  They go to work every day and earn a living for their families and support the ministry that lives closest to their heart.  We are a SILENT Christian Society.

 

The Devil said, “Separation of church and state is what the Constitution says.”  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Nine of Satin’s justices sat on the Supreme Court and said this is what we believe, and it must be true if we believe it.  The question remains after over 60 years of this ridiculous statement; is getting God out of our everyday lives and thinking working better than being under God’s umbrella of love and protection?

 

Keep in mind that this problem didn’t start in 1960.  Satin had and has sleeper cells in our communities, states and national government both elected and unelected waiting on their call.  We, must, move from the point of being silent Christians to chime ringing Christians. 

 

Holding ourselves up to be a Christian is not a byproduct of the Constitution.  The Constitution is a byproduct of Christianity.  Now, as a nation, we followed God’s example He gave in the bible which allows us to make the choice either to become a Christian or not to become a Christian.  What our constitution says is that we (the citizens of the United States) will not make you become a Christian.

 

Anyone holding office in these United States in any capacity and especially the Supreme Court that does not believe that should not be reelected of if appointed should be disappointed by being impeached of simply put in another position of non-leadership.  Even a more important obstacle that must in all instances hold hard to our Christian beliefs and practices are the members of the Boards of Education.  While we have laws that countermand our beliefs these people must be strong devout Christians to fight the battle bring our public schools back under God’s control. I want to hear the bible read every morning in school along with a prayer to begin the day.  The people that don’t believe we should do that can go to hell, but they don’t need to take us with them.

ARE WE IN ROME IN 50 AC

17 Apr

I am watching our esteemed congress at their very best.  Unfortunately their very best falls short of adequate. 

 

I really don’t know if the bill that was defeated in the Senate today is a good bill or not.  I do know that it didn’t pass.  The real tragedy is that the citizens of this great nation said to congress, “we have a problem with some people that can get and use guns that should not have them.”  Congress said, “We are not smart enough to fulfill your desire.”

 

This happens too often.  If they just can’t do the work, then tell us.  They said they could fulfill the needs of the citizens of the US when they ran for office.  Did they just lie, or did they just come to Congress to fulfill their own agenda?

 

This type of activity reminds me more of the ancient Roman Senate than the Senate of a Republic of the United States.  If you vote to send someone back to Congress because they can do something for you at the detriment of someone else, then you are clearly not part of the United States where I want to live.  If you actually look at the voting record of the congressional representatives, and do not consider that voting record when you vote, you might as well stay home.

 

I don’t know what the answer to the gun control bill should become to be.  However, I am very sure that one of the choices is not, NOTHING.

I eat sausage

15 Apr

I have seen Chinese and Mexican food prepared, and I have seen laws passed by the US Congress.  I love Chinese and Mexican food, but I can’t stand laws passed by the US Congress.  Those Chinese and Mexican chefs have to consider everything they do because the taste of their creation is immediately tested by the consumer. 

 

The US Congress should be more like those chefs.  Each side or even those in the middle of any issue only look at their side of the situation and ignore the other side of the issue.  Every issue has one or more sides.  The problem is that we have to take the ill designed often bitter pill and eat it whether it has considered the public’s best interest or not.

 

When I listen to politicians being interviewed on TV, they simply do not answer the question put to them by the questioner because they don’t want to expose the problem to the public.  The questioner cannot make them answer the question and mostly just goes to the next question or issue.

 

I remember reading a Michener novel; I believe the name of the book was “The Tell”.  In that novel which was explaining the information taken from a “dig” in Israel that one of the characters in the novel was Jewish and was on a counsel which met every year in Jerusalem to discuss the Jewish laws.  An example of such laws was given which reminds me of our Congress.  The subject was it right to throw the dishwater out on the Jewish sabot.  Evidently they had concluded that it was okay to wash the utensils but had to decide just on that point.    

 

There are things that just should not be in national law.  Some things must be decided by the inhabitants of the area affected by the local jurisdiction or maybe not at all.  If it is not okay to rob someone, but it is okay to take advantage of someone, what is the difference other than the micromanagement of the governing laws? 

 

In the Christian society we believe it is not okay to kill.  However, in the case of the unborn fetus the US Supreme Court, the court decided when life begins.  Now in this Christian society we have bowed to the Supreme Court as God instead of saying, “You don’t have that authority.” 

 

In a free society you have to have the right to succeed or to fail.  You have to have the right to make mistakes that does not affect anyone but you.  You do not have the right to think for me.  God knows everything.  If you do not believe that, then you are not a Christian.  With all He knows he gave us Ten Commandments to live by.  The founders of our country knew that.  They knew they could not control every aspect of our lives nor did they want to do so. 

 

Yes I have seen sausage made.  I eat it because it tastes good to me.

 

I don’t want to live like that

9 Apr

I see people from other countries celebrating by firing weapons in the air like we see in the old cowboy movies.  I don’t want to live like that. 

I see county and states making laws that arm people that normally aren’t armed.  Teachers in school in one state, head of households in Georgia.  The people are necessarily trained to handle a gun, and more importantly they are not trained to aim a gun at another person and pull the trigger.  This is a whole different mindset.  I don’t want to live like that.

 

We are going backwards and not forward in God’s plan for the human race.  If we are not going to believe in peace on earth, then let us say so and get rid of all the laws.  In other words anyone can have a gun any time or do anything to anyone else just because we want to.  I don’t want to live like that.

 

If we want to have peace on earth, then we have to realize that the bad people and people who do not possess a good mind will find a way to do whatever they want.  The legal ramifications of a psychiatrist reporting someone because they think someone might do something unlawful and then convicting the target person by restricting their rights is nuts.  It just cannot happen in this free society.  The congresspersons know this, but will not say so because they think that we are not intelligent enough to understand it. 

 

There has never been a public debate along those lines that I have ever heard.  The congress just wants us to hear what they believe we can comprehend. We give people the opportunity to carry hand guns.  We cannot take that right away from the public.  However, we cannot allow people to have just anything that will fire.  A surface to air shoulder weapon just cannot be something we can tolerate.    

 

We need a general law that makes people and corporations responsible for what they do.  A person should not be able to do anything they want on a whim.  A corporation should not be able to do anything they want on a whim or even because it will make their stockholders more money.  Rather than regulating the size of gun or allowing a corporation to take our money or do harm to the public or put the public in harm’s way, we should be able to charge a person for putting someone in harm’s way by the way. They should be charged or maybe arrested like a person that yells fire in a crowded theater.  If a corporation does it, there should be a hearing and if charged immediately, their business halted until the harming situation is resolved with the court.

 

We cannot micromanage everything because there is no one in the United States smart enough to do it.  If an individual is arrested or put in jail as a result of his or her actions, at least they have to deal with the consequences.  A corporation should have similar consequences.  If a medical company does harm to the public, the president and the board of directors of the company should have to personally face the same consequences since the Supreme Court has indicated that a corporation is a person.

 

We simply cannot micromanage our society.  We can’t make decisions in general for all crimes against society.  Legislators like the Georgia legislators that pass a law that every household must have gun in the house must be declared unconstitutional because I have a right to go unarmed because the constitution says I have a right to the pursuit of happiness.  How can I be happy if everyone has a gun ready to use against me.

 

We are a free society, but have to maintain a responsible attitude to each other.  I want to live like that.
