Do We Still Deserve Our Constitution?

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other:  John Adams

Our Founding Fathers set the wheels in motion to form the greatest country the world has ever known, why have we fallen to a place that is unrecognizable to many Americans?  Could it be because the Democratic Party once tried to remove God from its platform at their 2012 convention?

 

Our Founding Fathers knew the importance that God plays in our society, as our country moves farther away from God, we have become a less moral people, just look at the Kardashians, have you ever seen a less moral people? Talk about a dysfunctional family?

Look where we are as a society; we have a society that dismisses God from any public place, we are tearing down crosses that have been in view for over 100 years. This past week the cops were called on a 7 year old boy because he was handing out bible verses.   Yet we celebrate unwed motherhood, drug use, homosexuality and other perversions. We have changed the definition of marriage that has been between a man and a woman for 2,000 years.  Prostitution is now legitimized by calling them sex workers. Just recently it seems the life of a gorilla is more important than the life of a child.

Praying at school graduations are banned, in many places the Pledge Allegiance is banned, illegal immigrants are given more benefits and are taken better care of than most U.S. citizens. How many times have we seen people being told that they are not allowed to fly the American flag? Just this past Memorial Day a man got fired for lowering the flag to half staff.  Reality is a thing of the past in this country, now all we have to do is identify as something that we are not and we get a free pass. Men are now allowed to take a shower and use the same restroom as women all because they say they feel like a woman that day.

This country is in a downward spiral and it has been for years, just look at all the things we used to be #1 at, we are now 14th in education, 46th in freedom of the press, 24th in literacy, 10th in economic freedom. But all is not lost because we are 1st in wine consumption and 1st in people in prison and 1st in breast augmentation, what a relief.

Our morality is shot and our value system is shot, so maybe John Adams was right; maybe we don’t deserve the Constitution anymore. Maybe it’s like anything else, “You don’t realize what you have until it’s gone.”

  1. Deuteronomy 11:26-28 King James Version

    26 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;

    27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day:

    28 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.

  2. 1st let me say “Jerry, you’re one of the special ones”

    Do we ‘deserve’ our Constitution? The worth rather depends on how high freedom rates. I, personally, see it and this Great Nation as a gift or blessing from G-d. Our Founders were directed (led) here so they were ‘free’ to worship their Creator and HIS Son. The trials and suffering experienced getting here and unselfish sacrifices tested their determination…..and I look at this way…….Yes, we do deserve it…….But that ;favor must be continuously ‘earned’

  3. Well said Jerry.

  4. Chris,

    Isn’t that a loaded question that sort of overwhelms our thinking process. You and I were raised as patriots because of the patriotism that surrounded our generation. I was born at the end of the war and served my country in Vietnam. I was altered by my war and spent many years in a medicated mind battle trying to understand where the line between reality and truth became confused. Was I instilled in a false sense of American identity and if so why? You start something and finish it, but not in Vietnam. You went for a year and came home as others went to take your place until we finally said we are done and at a cost of 58,000 young American lives, such a wasted treasure. Was it really wasted treasure in terms of their lives, or is that measure to be a voice of reason in terms of the very Constitution and its value today given our political landscape now? Absolutely

    Did it stop with Vietnam? No, and at what cost? Can such a cost be measured in terms of valued worth with respect to our Constitution. It can and it must be if America is to remain as a beacon of hope across our globe, and especially now in view of our world today.

    Chris our Constitution represents so much to so many even beyond our borders and that is why it is attacked every day from within our own political system and from beyond our shores. It is a document that shouts of God’s law and of Natures law because it is the truth for mankind to exist together in a just and moral way.
