Political Responsibility

The Americans combine the notions of religion and liberty so intimately in their minds that it is impossible to make them conceive of one without the other. ... In the United States the sovereign authority is religious, and consequently hypocrisy must be common; but there is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men than in America; and there can be no greater proof of its utility and of its conformity to human nature than that its influence is powerfully felt over the most enlightened and free nation of the earth.
Alexis de Tocqueville --  Democracy in America, 1835

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

America was founded by people who knew the one true God and respected His authority over nations.  They realized that "one nation under God" was the foundation for individual liberty (freedom to do what is right) and for a government that would protect that freedom for all men.  The Bible is very clear that when a nation rejects God as the source of their accomplishments, that nation will fall. 

This generation of Americans has lost sight of America's original purpose - to glorify God.  We have become proud and greedy as a nation and do not give God credit for any of our accomplishments; therefore, over the last 50 years or so God has been tearing down every area in which America has become proud as a nation.  We were proud of our technology - now other nations who were once our enemies surpass us in technology.  We were proud of our industries, such as steel production, production of automobiles, furniture, textiles, food --- you name it.  Now many of these industries are overseas.  We depend on other nations for many of our resources, even though we have these resources on our own soil.  We are experiencing unusual numbers of destructive tornadoes, hurricanes, ice storms, fires.  In a nation that should lead in medical technology, we are a nation ravaged by cancer, diabetes, heart disease and many other diseases that leave us as a people at the mercy of understaffed hospitals.  Now we are seeing the rise of plagues of bed bugs, deer ticks, turkey mites and other disease-carrying insects.  We are also a nation that is losing our children because of abortion (murder of the unborn), crimes related to pornography and drugs/alcohol, and barrenness.  In Isaiah we see that all of these things come on a nation that has forgotten God, but a nation that honors God is protected from these things.

In Deuteronomy 7 God told the Israelites that they were a chosen people to be "a people of His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth."  God had protect His people from the latter plagues of Egypt and delivered them from slavery.  If they would honor God and obey Him, God promised to bless them and multiply them.  He would bless the fruit of their womb and the fruit of the ground.  He would increase their herds and the young of their flocks.  There would be no barrenness among them.  Deuteronomy 7:15-16 also says that the Lord would remove from them all sickness and would not put on the people any of the harmful diseases of Egypt which they had known.  BUT, he would put these diseases on all who hate them as a nation.  God promised that people who loved Him and followed Him would have victory over their enemies.  He promises that if the nation depends on God to help fight battles against their enemies, He would take care of their enemies like He did the Egyptians who were destroyed when they pursued the Israelites leaving Egypt.

In the book of Isaiah God goes on to say that if the nation becomes proud and says in its heart that it no longer needs God, He would humble them and bring enemies on them that would scatter the people over the earth.  He would lift the ban on the diseases and would bring judgment in the form of plagues, barrenness, and government leaders who cared nothing for the people. 

America was once a nation that stood on Christian principles and was led by statesmen who loved and respected God, not by selfish politicians.  As a result God blessed America; He made her a great and free nation.  Even after America began to become proud and allowed "other gods" to come into this nation, God still continued to bless her for the sake of the generations who were before us.  He was merciful and kept trying to show us our need for Him in every area of our society.  When the Challenger blew up because of a tiny O-ring, we still remained proud and did not admit our need for God.  While unusual weather patterns come upon us, we still remain proud and think that we can defeat the destruction that comes along our coastline by building huge retaining walls.  When terrorists destroy two buildings in the heart of New York, we still believe we can defeat our enemies without turning back to God. 

Now we are in the middle of probably the worst economic crisis in America's existence, but we still do not see the relationship between that crisis and our rejection of God's grace.  We think that the solution to our problems is a government who will control every area of our lives and lead us into slavery to this government.  We are sheep being led to the slaughter and we are willingly going into slavery as a nation.  Our government is not the answer to our needs -- God is the answer.  If we turn back to Him, He will give us the leaders who will care more for the well-being of our citizens and give us back our individual and national liberty.  He is the source of wisdom for all our needs, but He will not give that wisdom to men or women who will not give Him honor and glory.

We as American citizens are leaving too much responsibility for our own well-being to the government leaders we elect to represent us.  We no longer elect leaders based on their moral character, those who honor God as the one true God.  We are electing people who are politicians first, not statesmen.  A politician is a person who cares only for his/her position as a representative and guards that at all cost.  That person caters to those who control votes and can keep him/her in office.  He does not remember that he/she is essentially hired by the people as their spokesperson.  A statesman cares for the God given liberty and well-being of its individual citizens and protects that at all cost. 

 One of the best ways to protect our future as American citizens is to vote responsibility.  It is sad that less than 50% of all people who claim to know God voted in the last election.  Of all people those who are able to gain wisdom and understand from its only source fail to stand up for what is right and help elect Godly leaders for our communities, states and nation.  The people elected to represent us at the national, state, and local levels should be reminded daily that this nation is a nation under God; they must be reminded that the Constitution is the basis of our law when they make decisions.  Many decisions are being made that affect our security, our well-being as citizens, and our economy without wisdom or understanding of our basic law -- the Constitution.  For this reason we sincerely urge you to check carefully the positions of the November candidates and make sure they truly represent you before you vote them into office.
