Who would have imagined a time when a written law was necessary to protect a child from its own mother?
What darkness has blinded the conscience of an individual to the reality and value of another living being, not of some alien and strange species but one of its own?
The founders of this nation no doubt struggled with establishing the very framework of a moral, just and civil society. Recognizing the values of life, liberty and property were manifest in the Old Testament scripture, they determined these were the best principles to pursue. Their wisdom, born of Christian study and experience caused them to build our Constitution upon the very foundations necessary for a blessed and prosperous nation.
Need we be reminded once more of the blessing and the curse that befalls a people who choose darkness over light, death over life.
“See, today I am setting before you a blessing and a curse a blessing if you obey the commandments of the LORD your God that I am giving you today, but a curse if you do not obey the commandments of the LORD your God and turn aside from the path I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.” Deut 11:26 – 28
The US Declaration of Independence states that
“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
It is urgent that we revisit this phrase daily and teach it to ourselves and our children. Current legislation from numerous states has effectively removed protections to the Right to Life. It is only a matter of time before Liberty and Property follow. ( I say Property because it is the original and better understanding of the concept phrased “pursuit of Happiness”.)
For statist and enemies of our Constitution, there is enough debatable material within this phrase to allow them the opportunity to destroy us from within. They have been relentlessly redefining each term and concept to fit their design of government. The only thing that is keeping our nation from total collapse at this point is the very Spirit of God.
Let us take up His full armor and engage the enemy with the words of Truth and Righteousness. It is late for us to make up lost time but we must stand firm and be committed to teaching with full understanding and compelling reason that our nation has indeed been blessed because of the loving obedience of a grateful people to the God of Life, Liberty and Happiness. Choose this day – Life!
