What Do We Need to Learn From This Election?
Despite being founded on the principle of limited, enumerated powers derived from the will of the people and subject to the transcendent Will of the Creator God, the current government in Washington DC is now a corrupt corporation acting as an organized criminal enterprise. Departing from its roots, wherein it acknowledged the God of the Bible as the Creator and Lawgiver, it has become Godless and grasping and now has its tentacles in virtually every aspect of our lives.
This dilemma is nothing new; it is a byproduct of state worship, commonly known as state-ism and has often been calculated and collaborated by both major political parties. The solution is not to simply elect our favorite political party into power. No political party is America’s savior. While certain political victories may serve to slow down the degradation of our culture, they certainly cannot be the solution to those problems.
Jedidiah Morse, who was a historian, educator, and known as the Father of American Geography, made the following conclusion with regard to our current American conundrum:
“To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys. All efforts made to destroy the foundations of our Holy Religion ultimately tend to the subversion also of our political freedom and happiness. In proportion as the genuine effects of Christianity are diminished in any nation… in the same proportion will the people of that nation recede from the blessings of genuine freedom… Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government — and all the blessings which flow from them — must fall with them.”
The Hebrew prophet Jeremiah warned, “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes man his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord. He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come…” Contrasting this is the promise, “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water…and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
Regardless of the outcome of this current election, the urgent need now is to return to the fixed standards found in the Law of Nature and of Nature’s God. Unless this Godly American agenda lives in the hearts of the people, we are at the mercy of evil and ruthless men.
I love the Constitution, but my work is worthless unless our foundation is the God of the Bible.
President John Adams insisted, “Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand… (The people) may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies.”
