Do Values Govern Us

1 Aug

I have been thinking about the coming election concerning our President, Congress, governors, state legislators, and Supreme Court as it relates to our Constitution.  After spending some time praying about all of them and the nation, I have come to the conclusion that our Constitution was not based on anything but God’s values.  This is a very important statement of my belief.

First I have a choice to either follow our not follow the values set forth in the Holy Bible.  The Old Testament is taken from the Torah where we get the Ten Commandments.  Our New Testament is based on the gospels telling the story of Jesus.  Jesus said the greatest commandment of all is love.  We are to love first love God, then our neighbor as our self.

What we need is a President, Congress, governors, state legislators and Supreme Court that understands that simple point.  If the platforms of the parties do not reflect love, it is wrong constitutionally.  If the candidates running for office do not want to bring the love of mankind, along with stewardship, and faith in the Almighty back to this country, they should not be elected.

Note:  The Constitution does not prohibit God’s influence in governing our nation.  Separation of church and state does not exist in the Constitution.  It does say the government cannot direct you to or against any religion.

Love is what our representatives do; not just what they say they will do.

Our country is falling apart because of this.  We are a very gullible people.

They (our representatives) said they would solve the problems produced by burning coal.

  • Today coal miners are not working in a safe environment.
  • The carbon emissions are still at an all-time high.
  • Some of the government officials and representatives are pushing the idea of clean coal.

They said they would impose safety measures concerning the production of oil.

  • We have tax exception for oil companies,
  • Fracking is destroying our water supply and the stability of the crust of the earth.

They said they wanted to make justice for all a priority when they were elected.

  • The bankers, politicians, corporate officers that commit crimes against the public are never even charged.
  • Corporate profits go to the company benefits and CEO salaries and benefit rather than increasing the income of the common workers or stockholders.
  • Congress spends an enormous amount of money investigating the possibility of a crime which should be handled in a grand jury where there is no agenda other than the truth.
  • People are serving sentences in jail because they could not afford a private attorney and have to rely on a public defender to negotiate and plea deal because they do not have the money for a trial.

They said they would raise the minimum wage.

  • They instead not only did not give the minimum wage a hike, but raised their own pay scale.

They said they would stop loopholes in the gun laws to allow through checks for gun buyer,

  • They didn’t do anything to protect the public.
  • Background checks are a joke.
    • o If you want guns sold on illegally stopped, make the sentence strong enough to show we care.

They say they have passed protection on the internet.

  • Try to report a fraud and see that you get shuffled around.

They say if you see something say something.

  • If you see something on your job or see fraud in action, you will be left holding the bag with no assistance from the government.

They said they were concerned about US jobs and income.

  • The minimum wage stays stagnant below the poverty level.
  • Jobs are sent overseas by US companies.

They said ISIL is our enemy but not Islam.

  • We do not condemn Islam units that support ISIL.
  • We have not made clear that an oath taken as a citizen cannot be taken or citizenship granted if your religious beliefs do not coincide with the US Constitution.
  • Do we teach the principles of the Constitution in our schools well enough to make those principles dwell in the thinking of our young people?

Therefore, we have to examine the way we vote.

  • Do we vote for popularity are for the principles of the person running?
  • Do we send the same people back to the Senate and Congress both state and national because we do not examine their votes against the principles they said they would follow?
  • Do we make decisions about our fellow man based on our Christian beliefs or based on what we have been told?
  • Do we know right from wrong?

 

The solution is that we must examine our own agenda.

  • What do I really believe?
  • What am I willing to give up to elect representatives that support what I believe?
  • Am I willing to accept lame excuses for representatives not voting for right rather than wrong?
  • If I am a Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Islam, or any other religion, atheist, or agnostic do I support my beliefs, or is it lip service?

 

 

I am a Christian and believe that God made the world and everyone in it.  I believe God gave us the planet to care for.  I believe God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, and God gave us Jesus who clarified them with one word, Love.  It is hard for me to believe that men and women that serve us a legislators make the laws they make in the name of service to mankind.

I believe God is the creator of the earth, and I accept the fact that God cleverly hid America from the rest of the world until His timing was right.  I believe He guided the men who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution to reflect His values.  If you agree with that, you will agree we have not done a very good job of electing and controlling our representatives.  Now join me in asking God to guide my vote this fall and elect men and women that will actually do the job of reflecting our values.

Now, what do you believe?
