Posted on 06/20/2021 4:59:27 AM PDT by The Ignorant Fisherman
For years, many in the United States have been crying out to our past Presidents and Government (i.e., Washington D.C.) to do more and more to fix our national ills. The notion that Big Government has all our answers and the solutions we need in this very chaotic and unstable world is a fairy tale.
Our Founding Fathers wisely understood that the less power government possessed the better off we as Americans would be. Our Foundering Fathers fully comprehend that with the abandonment of Judeo/ Christian foundations and principles that our government would be transformed into an ever controlling monster with a tyrant as its rider. If present today, Our Founders Fathers would be fighting tooth and nail against this secular socialistic aggression.

The present statist or U.S. constitutional apostate is rooted in the subjective liberal personal belief that Fallen Man through and by the outworking of Big Government or "Socialism" can bring security and comfort to its inhabitants. This secular ideology has failed every time it has been implemented. In fact, there is no government or political ideology that can ever usher in a world Utopia of perfection and bliss. Those who believe so are oblivious to the fallen nature of man and record of history (Rom 5:12-19).
The faith of Our Fathers
Our Founding Fathers knew this reality to be true. They fully comprehended that without the fear or reverence of Almighty God (Prov. 1:7) there could never come about the personal responsibility and accountability that would give fallen man the benefits of human freedom. These earthly freedoms were to point to the absolute freedoms and liberty set forth by Almighty God (John 8:32, 36, Heb 2:14,15). The rejection of these heavenly principles would only lead to the continual outworking of godless tyrants and oppressors in this temporal fallen world.

The outworking of all nations - along with their godless ideologies of big controlling government - is only full of good intentions and oppressive desires. The masses that have fallen prey to these are living in drunken fictional delusion with no deliverance in sight. (Rom 3:23, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev 17: 1-2).
The majority of our Founding fathers understood the truth of the matter, that man - apart from Almighty God and His righteousness - can only bring upon himself the consequences of his own evil doings (unbridled passions). Conservative values are a must and are the best ideology for here in time but God's Messiah/Christ is absolutely essential for Almighty God's Holy (Perfect) ETERNAL Heaven. The Conservative and Liberal ideologies of this hour can never offer the absolute righteousness required of Almighty God and those ETERNAL heavenly necessities which are only found in Almighty God's Son, Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 1:30).
The majority of our Founding fathers understood the truth of the matter, that man - apart from Almighty God and His righteousness - can only bring upon himself the consequences of his own evil doings (unbridled passions).
The Bible states in Galatians 5:20-21, "Now the works of the flesh (our fallen humanity) are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."
Also in Matthew 15:17-20, "And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man."
The Fallen nature of man can never bring about true peace. God's word states in Isaiah 57:20, "But the wicked (unsaved humanity) are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked." This social gospel of man is in direct opposition to the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible states in Roman 14:17, "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost."
and also in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"
One must choose who they will put their trust in, Big Government or Almighty God. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
and in Matthew 6:33, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." To obtain true righteousness and peace one must know the Prince of Peace, The Lord Jesus Christ. Only through Christ can one obtain this reality.
The Bible states in Galatians 5:22, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Do you know the Prince of Peace the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior?
The Bible states in Isaiah 45:21, 22, "there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."
also in John 1:12, "But as many as received him (Jesus Christ), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" . As we celebrate Father's Day here in America, may we remember our American Founding Fathers' vision and all that they have bestowed upon this nation. Their incredible Divine wisdom, selfless labors, enduring hardships, and their reverence and great admiration towards Almighty God the King and Savior of the nations. They are indeed worthy of remembrance in America on this Forth.
The Kingdom of God is at hand!
