About the Blog
John Adams, our second President, said, “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Our founders believed that the only way our republic could stand was if the people maintained a relationship with God. This religion and morality would foster virtue and liberty.
George Washington stated in his Farewell Address: “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
The Bible says in Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
The key to maintaining and building the prosperity of the United States is to keep God in the center of our society and maintaining “A Moral and Religious People.”
This blog is my thoughts on the religious perspective of current events, prominent issues, and political philosophies in an effort to better understand God’s plan in each circumstance.
