What Are We?
In the light of the recent events I have heard many folks exclaim:
“We are better than this!”
“This is not America!”
With a few internet searches you can find a tremendous amount of information on the violence that has occurred spontaneously and the violence that has been sanctioned. We have been a county that from it’s inception has been based in getting our way. We put it in the terms of “We The People”. This seems to wrap it up and put a nice bow on it. It sounds good to say “We the people!” We don’t ever stop to think about what that really means.
Our founding father, Benjamin Franklin said “I am making a Republic if you can keep it!”
Our founding fathers saw the danger of making a Democracy that could lead to a “mob rules” mentality. So they created our Republic.
We The People, The heart of the Rebellion
The US Constitution starts with these famous words. Meaning “What ever the people want is what they get!”
It’s all about their will. The people know best.
In the Constitution is their little room for one true God. There is lot of room for your “little g” gods.
Worship what every god you want, purse what makes you happy.
Can we be surprised?
Many people in the US have not learned their own history well enough to understand how we truly begin.
The United States has a mixed history. Some of the groups that came here were truly for religious reasons. Such as the Pilgrims. These groups were mixed in with the other groups here to make money. It is a mixed bag of religious refuges mixed with people trying to worship God with freedom. The United States Written law gave into the desires of the flesh. Letting the people do what ever makes them happy. Making ourselves “litte g” gods as well.
What does the bible say about this?
Jeremiah 17:9 (KJV)
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
The real law that we should be concerned by.
Psalm 1:1-3 (KJV)
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The Bible tells us to:
DON’T FOLLOW YOUR HEART!
Follow Yahuah laws! His ways are not our ways.
Not following His way is rebellion. We have been doing what we want, what makes us happy and what makes us feel good since our inception.
How can we expect that the Father is pleased with us? He is not please with a group of people that shake their fist at Him and do whatever they want.
I am not proclaiming any politically allegiance in the writing of this post. As a student of history I just need to make you aware of the waring and rebellious nature of our past.
Lets take a look at our long history of Violence.
Top 10 Deadliest US Riots
