As we get crazier and crazier in the world, as the world gets crazier, news is not even telling us nationally all the mini quakes and stuff going on because naturally they don’t want to scare us. For those of faith, and I can only speak to the Christian faith, biblical Christians, not cultural Christians we shape our world with clarity, clear lines, boundaries etc.. and they determine much, determined much of the founding foundations for America. This is a quote from George Washington, and there are similar ones from our Founding Fathers like this one.
“Religion is as necessary to reason as reason is to religion. The one cannot exist without the other. A reasoning being would lose his reason, in attempting to account for the great phenomena of nature, had he not a Supreme Being to refer to; and well has it been said, that if there had been no God, mankind would have been obliged to imagine one.”
What are the principles that guide a Biblical, not Cultural Christian, a true Biblical Christian, well this article tells you. When you are not sure how Christians, Conservative, Evangelical Biblical Christians arrive at defending a Constitutional, Capitalist, Republic with a Bill of Rights, and rejecting lawlessness and such, this is why. We have reasons, yup, who would have thought.
Some will say, well I am not Christian. Okay. There are those who ascribe to the Twelve Universal Laws, which provide a guidepost for living for understanding life. Then there are human traits that incorporate into that. Where did they get the “laws”? Someone had to have divine revelation that there has to be foundational blocks to build life upon, to run society upon. In our own lives, in our national governing etc.. and in all things there needs to be core building blocks that are a common thread for how we evaluate, decide etc…For me, I think the bible offers advice for pretty much anything and explains a heck of a lot. I see how with no clear set of immutable moral, ethical etc.. guideposts our society goes to hell, is going to hell and maybe with no way back. I hope when you see Conservatives, Biblical, not Cultural, Christians beating the pro-life etc.. drums you will understand why. Hopefully. It is those 15 Principles that also make my voting Democrat, not an option.
