If we are indeed living in post-Christian America, and it certainly seems as if we are, then the Constitution is no longer adequate to restrain the populace.
John Adams warned of such a time.
“Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, • would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
If we reject God, The Bible and the Constitution, who then, keeps us from killing each other, murdering the innocent, raping and pillaging our way across the land?
William Penn, another of our Founding Father’s, had some insight in regards to this when he said:
“Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants.”
God requires our submission as a people and He will get it, one way or another. We have spit in the face of our Savior one too many times.
Editing of Scripture
It may well take a tyrannical governmental regime to bring us to our knees. We have seen a foreshadowing of tyranny for the last eight years and fifty-percent of our population welcome the control administered by “big-brother” as they throw off both the Bible and, co-equally, the ability of the Constitution to maintain order among a disgruntled populace.
As that populace continues to rattle their sabres and groan for a helping hand from the powers that be, for whatever imagined or real, “injustice” has been done them, are we not still clamoring for a tyrant to rule us, instead of begging a loving heavenly Father to forgive us, provide for us and raise us up once again?
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
We are entering a very dangerous place in our history, America. We must take great care to make sure we aren’t furthering our downward spiral into bondage by selecting one tyrant to replace another.
1 Samuel 8:6-9
But the thing was displeasing in the sight of Samuel when they said, “ Give us a king to judge us. “And Samuel prayed to the LORD. And the LORD said to Samuel, “Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them. “Like all the deeds which they have done since the day that I brought them up from Egypt even to this day — in that they have forsaken Me and served other gods — so they are doing to you also. “Now then, listen to their voice; however, you shall solemnly warn them and tell them of the procedure of the king who will reign over them.”
Sometimes God gives us exactly what we ask for.
1 Samuel 10-18
So Samuel spoke all the words of the LORD to the people who had asked of him a king. And he said, “This will be the procedure of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and place them for himself in his chariots and among his horsemen and they will run before his chariots. “And he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and of fifties, and some to do his plowing and to reap his harvest and to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. “He will also take your daughters for perfumers and cooks and bakers. “And he will take the best of your fields and your vineyards and your olive groves, and give them to his servants. “And he will take a tenth of your seed and of your vineyards, and give to his officers and to his servants “He will also take your male servants and your female servants and your best young men and your donkeys, and use them for his work. “He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his servants.
“Then you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the LORD will not answer you in that day”
