Hi, welcome to my Freeper profile page. I am a born again Christian who enjoys talking religion and politics. I have always believed that it is the Christian's obligation to understand the workings of our government as well as they do the precepts of God. Jesus tells us,
"Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves" (Mark 10:16)
It is with this understanding that I approach life, I guess that is why I consider it every Christian's duty to understand the world we live in. If we pray for wisdom, God will grant us the knowledge we need to know the truth. Then we will be able to properly rule the world we live in. Unfortunately we are often times ruled by evil men who despise God. These men think they have gained the knowledge needed to rule us, but they lack the wisdom needed to use that knowledge properly. Thus they have been educated beyond their intelligence. Solomon tells us,
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10
So with no knowledge of the Holy One, they cannot discern what is right or wrong, what is good or bad. Our founding fathers understood the need to know the Holy One, and they gave Him credit for our independence. They wrote our Constitution with His precepts in mind. They also understood that men needed to be educated if they were going to rule themselves. Madison is quoted as telling his fellow Americans,
Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
So it is with this understanding that I feel it to be incumbent upon me to share with others that which He has blessed me with. Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you.
