As an interested observer with good will I see that the USA consitution that was written on parchment is under attack and you are in danger of losing your liberties as we in the Uk are in danger of losing ours.
Now if ours is under threat which was written on the indelable history of this nations history and cannot be undone.Though not yet perfected,yet each part we have has been tried tested and proven in the fires of the greatest adversity .
How much more is yours?
Now if ours is yet to be perfected .In so far as what Kings and the people had to learn. This parlaiment will have to as well.
It may well be that there is another fire storm coming to prove this parlaiment as it has proved our monarchs.
Then it is more than likely the USA is heading for a storm as well.
That there are moves to take out God that is to say God of the bible. and seperate the State and religion .Despite the fact that the dollar has it on it "In God we trust" and "it is self evident that under God all men are created equal...."
Now I would argue that the USA is in more danger for yours was written down by men and on paper and what is written by man can be unwritten.
The Uk's is written on the indelabale parchment of this nations history. It cannot be unwritten.
It can be ignored .trampled upon despised and rejected. But not without very serious consequences.
I have to say that if yours is there would be also the most serious and unforseen consequences.
But I am more certain let me say. That this parliament will be forced /compelled/ driven/ led to conformity to it.Either in peace by elections. By the point of a sword. Or by bloodshed.
But it will come.
For if God began a good work in this nation he will perfect it.
We will pay a terrible price if we sucumb to that which our whole history has before resisted refused and overcome.
So also will the USA.
The church is too complacent .
The USA Constitution is not my rule of life, the word of God is~period. Christians are profess stranger in this world, rather in the USA, or any where else. No true child of God will ever be elected as person in higher authority, maybe note even on a lower scale anymore, that's just how wicked this world in which we now lived is.
Christians must not allow themselves to be entangled in the things of this present world in which we live. We seek for a better country, and definitely a better life, even a life free of sin, and where the King of Righteousness will reign world without end.
2 Timothy 2:4
"No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a solider."
1 Corinthians 7:29-32
"But this I say, brethren, the time is short: (in comparison to eternity, it is always short, regardless, which generation one lives in) It remaineth, that they both that wives be as though they had none; And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away. But I would have you without carefulness.........."
That being said, the USA Constitution is not high on my list of care. I am not trying to be disrespectful to your post, only a friendly reminder, and to share my personal conviction on such things.
While I understand your conviction and I would have to agree with you in this respect. That the bible if you will is a child of Gods consitution and of the kingdom of God.
Never the less that peace may reign that the gospel may be preached you need to look to and uphold your constitution.
For its undermining and ruin will mean such lawlessness in the States that you will eb hard put to openly preach the gospel.
As to the Uk's constitution. I have a mind that thinks that Englands constitution will be perfected inso far as it has bene proven that KINGS are subject the People are subject and in its turn this Parlaiment will have to learn that she too is subject to principles greater than man.
This OP is it not then to do whith the USA Constitution? Then it is relevant.
For does not the first line involve "it is selfevident under God that all men are created equal" How is it then that Christians in the States be not concerned with its destruction.
For it is the only thing that holds the nation of the USA together as nation and country before God.
Yes we know that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our God and of His Christ and the goverment shall be upon His shoulders.
But it is not yet . and we know do we not that there will be nations for and against God and will be judged accordingly.
I would hope the USA is not one against.Nor then the UK.
The means by which it will become may well be the revision and fundamental changes to your constitution.
and if for instance the move to remove God out of all public life in the USA then your constitution will have to go as well!
For you cannot have written in it "it is self evident UNDER God ....."
of course if the States wishes to undo their civil war and bring back slavery as some so wish and proclaim it so
by the flag they raise.
Then of course not all men are created equal under God.
so change the constitution right?
Winston Churchill said "Democracy is the worse form of goverment that there is,but every other form has proven not to work"
Hes right. For it has a fatal flaw in it and a snare to the unwary.
That if you have a majority (by any means) and can control the legislator then you cna delude yourself that the truth is what you make it.
I would sugest that your President /Senate and congress in the main are so deluded and act and make thier laws accordingly.
Even as this parliament is now doing.
To sugest then that it is of no concern to christians is I think a great mistake.
it was" while men SLEPT that hsi enemy came and sowed tares"
Did not one say once that for evil to prosper the good must do nothing?
and the scriptures say "if the foundations are destroyed what can the rightious do?"
Ive heard it said and im inclined to believe it. That the USA has the best and the worse of everything.
So if the best do nothing and fold thier arms and go to sleep; do you not think that the worse will not increase?
and the best decrease?
I think so.
For if you want to grow weeds in yoru garden .Put your sunglasses on .Your headphones on .get the deck chair outand fold your arms and go to sleep.
And it is an irefutable fact that the weeds will grow and multiply to their hearts content yo do not have to do a thing.
and if you ever had any thign worth while to start with.Those weeds will choke the life out of them.
Stay asleep long enough and they wil also choke the life out of you as well!"
is not the church to be the salt of the earth?
To do what?
To stop the meat from rotting.
But look around you.is not the meat rotting?
I do not say look at all the mega churches and the screaming and the shouting the miracles and prophecies etec tect
I say look at your country . The nation in which God has put you .
The declention of the USA even as of the UK is not because of global economy,But because ther eis no fear of God and in consequence no wisdom .Either in the churches a or public life/.
The truth is put on the scafold and lies put on the throne.
men call good evil and evil good.
Now if the meat is rotting what then of the salt!?
Where is its flavour?
If the church is comfortable with the way things are then it is more in sympathy with the world than it is with God.
and if it is said that this is not true.
Then if the world is gettign worse and the church better .Why is not the church then persecuted? Which it is not.
It would seem to me then.
That if things continue persecution must come.
If only to seperate the wheat from the chafe.For it is not done in the churches generaly speaking to date.
Does not judgement then start with the house of God?
The Lord said go ye into all the wolrd and preach the gospel. They didnt. But rather stayed in Jerusalem.
So God sent persecution and THEN they were scattered preachign the gospel.
God bless America it is often said and on the Dollar is it not written "In God we trust"?
But they that honour me I will honour says the lord.
It follows then.That they who do not will not.
It is therefore of great concern I would think what people do or wish to do and are doing to your Constitution.
For I must bare witness .That in the UK where they have taken out God in our education.hospitals and public life.
The resultant collapse and corruption and our hospitals murderous regime abounds and is increasing.
Then it will also happen if not already in the USA .
