Odd how life is quiclky becomming stranger than fiction. In the Fox News report “Sotomayor’s Gun Control Positions Could Prompt Conservative Backlash” the following information is provided:

“Earlier this year, President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee joined an opinion with the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Second Amendment rights do not apply to the states. A 2004 opinion she joined also cited as precedent that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.” 

Wrong , Wrong , Wrong 

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Recommended reading for Justice Sotomayor can be found at the United States Government Archives . As a point of intrest the Bill of Rights to our nations Constitution has been around since 4 March 1789.

  2. Rightfulness or lawfulness, as of a claim or title; justness of ground or reason: to complain with justice.
  3. The moral principle determining just conduct.
  4. Conformity to this principle, as manifested in conduct; just conduct, dealing, or treatment.
  5. The administering of deserved punishment or reward.
  6. The maintenance or administration of what is just by law, as by judicial or other proceedings: a court of justice.
  7. Judgment of persons or causes by judicial process: to administer justice in a community.
  8. A judicial officer; a judge or magistrate.
  9. (initial capital letter) Also called Justice Department. the Department of Justice.

Definitions from the Greek and Hebrew reveal the following:

1. The root word in Hebrew is Sedaqa Phonetic Pronunciation: tsed-aw-kaw’

Rightous (to be). There are fifteen occurrences in scripture where this variant is used and is applied in the King James version of the Holy Bible as follows: righteousness 128, justice 15, right 9, righteous acts 3, moderately 1, righteously 1. Totaling 157 references

2. The Hebrew word which comes from a Primitive root is Sedaq Pronunciation: tsaw-dak’ a primitive root; to be (causative make) right (in a moral or forensic sense) :- cleanse, clear self, (be, do) just (-ice, -ify, -ify self), (be, turn to) righteous (-ness).

justice 10, righteous 8, righteously 3, right 3, righteous cause 1, unrighteousness 1, miscellaneous 2. Totaling 116 references, that is 314 references to Justice from the Holy Scriptures, interesting thought when examined the definition from the dictionary and the Holy Scriptures parallel one another.

—Strong’s Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary

In 1892 in the Supreme Court case of HOLY TRINITY CHURCH v. U.S. 143 U.S. 457, 12 S.Ct. 511, 36 L.Ed. 226 February 29, 1892. In the Court Opinion it was stated “These and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.”

In 1963 a law suit was filed “the Pennsylvania School District of Abington Township v. Schempp” This case involved yet another voluntary activity by students: the use of the Scriptures. At issue was a Pennsylvania policy which stated:

Each school… shall be opened by the reading, without comment, of a chapter in the Holy Bible. … Participation in the opening exercises is voluntary. The student reading the verses from the Bible may select the passages and read from any version he chooses. Abington at 211, n. 4, 207

The Court further explained:

There are no prefatory statements, no questions asked or solicited, no comments or explanations made and no interpretations given at or during the exercises. The students and parents are advised that the student may absent himself from the classroom or, should he elect to remain, not participate in the exercises. Abington at 207 more information on this case at http://members.aol.com/EndTheWall/Educ_Bible.htm

The point is to understand what justice is and without the proper application there of is detrimental to society as a whole, two questions comes to mind. Are you willing to allow correct and proper justice to be lost? Are you willing to have your children and your children’s children suffer the consequences and loss of freedom God intended for The United States of America?

Understanding The Foundation

leave a comment »

Each day as Americans we are subject to the governing authorities of the nation and state in which we live. Why is it that people believe and have the concept that freedom means a lack or absence of authority? That each of us is able to act without conscience of the outcome; nothing could be further from the truth. There are many philosophies, thesis, Beliefs, and concepts to the establishment of government. However, the answer is a simple one.

Contrary to people’s personal beliefs, the God of the Holy Scripture’s institutes all governing authorities. There is no authority for government except that which is given by God In the book of Romans the first chapter states:

1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. Romans 13:1-5 (KJV)

When the people resist the authority of God they are, playing Russian roulette with all the chamber’s loaded. In simple English, it is mankind looses not God. It is Mankind bringing judgment on themselves by resisting the ordinances of God. We are the ones responsible through the ability of free will, which God has provided.

Many people distrust our government … government is not the problem. Problem is the politicians who over many years allowed the distortion of government. God is eternal and at work in our daily lives of that, there is no question. The issue is our nation faces a continual battle of good versus evil. As individuals, we face this battle each day.

Therefore, what is good, simply put, it is God’s provision for us every day. The success of America as a nation is in following our Constitution. Our success as Americans is in understanding that the God of scripture is the designer of our form of government. Unfortunately, as a mankind genuinely tries to distort what our Constitution says as a nation mankind in the process has damaged our main foundation.

Scripture is clear there is no authority for government except from God. Our Constitution is the authority for our nation given by God. So why is it that we are working so diligently to destroy our nation’s God given authority? Here again the fact of God’s gift of free will to mankind presents itself. As a people, we must choose and the choices we make are not always correct.

Currently, politicians have the power; but the power was given to them through election by the people, or was it. If you look at the current election system, you will find “super delegates”, “lobbyist”, “corporate lobbyists”, “corporate money” and a tangle of other influences in Washington D.C. everyday. The common American is on the outside with a very small voice.

Many people do not understand that God allows things to happen so that the need for a relationship with Him becomes more evident. Our elected representatives are supposed to be Godly, honest, and trustworthy people. When elected they are charged with protecting us as both a nation and individual people against all evil.

When entering congressional office each representative swears for affirms the following oath of office, it has been this way since 1884.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

http://uspolitics.about.com/od/usgovernment/a/oaths_of_office_4.htm

This brings to light a question. Why when charged with the support and defense of our Constitution is it that the politicians walk, further and further away from their support and defense of our Constitution. How much do you know regarding the person you given your vote to? Are you sure that person is properly representing you? Alternatively, do you cast a vote thinking it is impossible to remove a person currently in office? What does your conscience tell you concerning the person for which you are voting?

Do you realize the more you ask of a politician the more you may get; the other side the more it will cost you; the result is personal financial cost and a loss of the freedom God has provided for our nation. Each of us should learn what it means to be responsible and how to be self-sufficient. Overall expecting less will truly provide each of us with more.

We should never forget that America is a melting pot of many people and many cultures. In the book of Romans Scripture tells us to respect the culture and custom of those around us. The taxes we pay are a result of what we asked politicians to accomplish. We should provide honor to those who support, protect, and defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. God has provided us the foundation for this nation, the United States of America, unique to itself not intended to be like any other on earth.

Thank God, He gave us a conscience and the free will to make decisions. The question is when making decisions do we use God’s provisions appropriately? Is the God of scripture part of your equation when making decisions regarding the strength of our nation?

The choice is yours to make … united we stand and divided we fall

Why Bash Christians?

with 3 comments

Why is it that people “Bash” Christian America or Christians? Could it be that those who “Bash” do not understand what it is to be Christian? Why “Bash” David Barton? To disagree with the Christian American thesis does not change that the God of the Holy Bible is still the Creator. The question weather or not David Barton incorrect or correct all the time provides an open door to discussion of opinion; however, no human is 100% correct 100% of the time. The fact Mr. Barton was a high school teacher with no background in history when he started his quest does not negate his ability to do research.

Disagreeing with a point to view or thesis, on any issue does not change the view or thesis. If x2 + x = 6… the value of x is equal to 2. The only way changed the solution is to change the value of x otherwise the solution is always 6. What a person chooses to believe is theirs alone. There is no doubt that many people do not believe in the existence of the God in the Holy Bible. With respect, that does not change the fact of His existence. Holy God is not an algebra problem, God is the only true constant, He is the one who provides you with the variable of free will to believe as you choose.

Additionally, properly understanding Mr. Barton’s zeal for the “Christian Thesis” a person would have to understand that Mr. Barton’s zeal is not about a religion but rather a relationship. People will tell you what their religion is quicker than they will discuss their relationship. The problem, people who do not have a relationship with the Lord God usually base their lives on their religion The question comes to mind, if a person does not believe in the “Christian Thesis” then what do they believe in and why do they believe that point of view.

What belief are they using for the basis of their discussion? Do they have faith in their belief or is their belief a human religion? Let us take a minute and look at “Enlightenment”, John Locke and Thomas Jefferson were both considered thinkers during the enlightenment period. Being an enlightened person is not by definition a bad thing.

Information found at http://www.temple.edu/ih/Enlightenment/

Says that those who are enlightened have core values they consist of the following:

<!–[if !supportLists]–>a deep commitment to reason,

<!–[if !supportLists]–><!–[endif]–>a trust in the emerging modern sciences to solve problems and provide control over nature,

<!–[if !supportLists]–> <!–[endif]–>a commitment to the idea of progress in material wealth and in human civility,

<!–[if !supportLists]–> <!–[endif]–>a belief in the essential goodness of human nature,

<!–[if !supportLists]–> <!–[endif]–>an emphasis upon the individual as master of his fate and fortune, and an engagement with the public sphere of discussion and action

A Christian is an enlightened person; the source of our enlightenment is the Lord God himself. An enlightened person has a deep commitment to reason; Christians who have a relationship with the Lord God also have a deep commitment to reason? It is an amazing concept that people would believe mankind grew out of a stagnant gene pool. A Christian believes the concept of mankind coming from a stagnant gene pool is ludicrous. Using common sense and sound reason, that God our Creator provided for us; provides us with a clear understanding of how mankind came to exist. Trusting science to solve the problems of this world would not be possible without God our Creator. The more science tries to provide control over nature the more God shows Himself.

 

Do you wonder if the God of the Bible is the Creator? If you do, this is what scripture says:

GENESIS Chapter 1

 

Creation of heaven and earth

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Creation of the light

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Creation of the firmament

6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

The earth separated from the waters

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Creation of the sun, moon and stars

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Creation of fish, fowl, beasts and cattle

20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Creation man in the image of God

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Provision for food

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Gen. 1 KJV

 

Just for the fun of it, here is a scientific fact. God keeps trying to tell man, trust in him with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6 Paraphrased


As the scientist tried to figure out DNA, the stuff life is made of what do they find Laminin.

Photo Bucket Laminin

It is interesting how Laminin, the protein that holds our DNA together, could have look like anything a circle, a square, a triangle. Yet as you can see, it is in the shape of a cross. To a Christian this is not surprising God is in everything; trust in Him and He will direct your path.

Christians too believe in progress, the progress that the Lord allows, if you stay inside of his will.


11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. Psalms 84:11 (KJV)

As for material wealth, it is by His provision. Someone once said to those who much is given much is expected. The Lord provides for each person on an individual scale providing no more than each person can handle.

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV)


Christians also believe that each of us has a sinful nature and that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ that His blood washes our sin nature away.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18 (KJV)

Please understand Christians are not sinless…They just sin less.

Christians believe that God provided each of us with free will and the choices you make are your own. You can choose follow Jesus or not to follow Jesus. Everyone should be aware that the choice you make is an eternal one. God made discussion and he does desire Christians to be involved in the world, just not be part of the world. Shoving God down somebody’s throat is not the desire of God; He desires a personal relationship with all those who are willing to have one.

Blessings,

AV1 

The choice is yours to make… united we stand and decided we fall.

Perfect Union

with one comment

If you were to look in the dictionary for the definition of the word “perfect”, you would find many. When looking at its use in the context of our Constitution that definition becomes clear. Our forefathers were strong believers in the Holy Bible as a basis for their lives. It is true that they were from different denominations but they believed that the Holy Bible was the inherent, infallible, word of God. This can be evidence by the use of the word perfect in the preamble to our Constitution.

In order to understand their hearts and thinking as an American you must recognize that the forefathers believed that no government on the earth could exist in its proper form without the Lord God as the foundation. With this in mind, the wording of the preamble makes complete sense. Starting with the following definition let, us examine a more perfect union.

Perfect: conforming absolutely to the description or definition of an ideal type

Our forefathers knew from the Holy Bible and their personal relationships with the Lord God. That for the establishment of a perfect union required more than a change of location. Perfection entailed more than the moral issues, more than individual character, they believed the establishment of America was through truth, a kind of truth, which is only found in a relationship with the Lord God of the Bible.

The work with which they were tasked was put upon them by the Holy Spirit. The task set before them was one of regeneration. A regeneration of the spirit and soul, providing free men access to a personal relationship with the Lord God and extending to all people chose to make America their home.

Working diligently in the writing of our Constitution they understood that they must yield themselves to the Lord God. That God had given our forefathers and us today a chance to proclaim His light so that all the world may see and understand that America’s strength does not come from people it comes from a personal relationship with the Lord God. Creating a new nation, filled with free people, renewed steadfast in the knowledge of the Creator of all that there is, was, and ever will be. America our home a nation sanctified by God to provide light for the rest of the world filled with the glory of God and wisdom that Jesus is the Christ.

Not all people who live in America are Bible believing Christians; but through the grace of God and the wisdom of our forefathers all of us are provided with the freedom of religion. The choice as always is yours to make. United we Stand and divided we fall.

Faith of our Fathers (John Adams)

with 5 comments

Lord willing this will become a regular Sunday post. The purpose of which is to share the faith of our fore fathers. America in working diligently to ensure diversity has stumbled on many occasions when it comes to this subject. Regardless of your race, creed, color or personal belief history records the proof that the Lord God intended America as a Christian nation. That is not to say that other beliefs would not be welcome here as they most assuredly are. Quite the contrary, many beliefs are welcome in America this is a gift of freedom. You can travel the world over and find particular beliefs, as the foundation for that country’s system of government. As we examine the foundation of America’s government there is no question that the cornerstone is Christianity according to the Holy Bible the inherent and infallible word of the Lord God.

It was clear to our fore fathers and it should be clear to us. There is no mistake; it is a matter of personal relationship, so let us look at those who formed our nation at the very beginning.

Today we start with John Adams surely; you have heard this name before. He was the second President of the United States of America, a judge, a diplomat. Additionally he was a signer of our Declaration of Independence from England and a signer of the bill of rights that are the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Here are a few of his quotes many of which you can find at www.wallbuilders.com .

“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.1

The Holy Ghost carries on the whole Christian system in this earth. Not a baptism, not a marriage, not a sacrament can be administered but by the Holy Ghost. . . . There is no authority, civil or religious – there can be no legitimate government but what is administered by this Holy Ghost. There can be no salvation without it. All without it is rebellion and perdition, or in more orthodox words damnation.2

The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity.3

Decide for yourself and ask the questions. What is my belief, where do I stand as an American? Can the type of relationship that my fore fathers had with the Lord God be developed in my life? What must I do to have this kind relationship with the Lord God? Go through this week evaluate where you stand. Not all who live in America are Christians; God did not intend things to be like that HE provided us the free will to choose. God’s intention is for America’s foundational cornerstone is a personal relationship with HIM. As always, the Choice is yours to make. United we stand And Divided we fall

“We the People of the United States”

leave a comment »

This is the beginning of a series of post to evaluate the preamble to the U.S. Constitution. English teachers will tell you to write in parts and then put your project completely together. For this, series of evaluations we will be evaluate the parts that produce the completed project.

Lawyers will tell you one thing and a politician will tell you yet another and both will be reading from the same information. Understanding our country at face value has become a lost commodity; not totally but there is no doubt the deliberations continues, and there are plenty. As Americans, we must return to our foundation and stand up for our freedom before it is gone forever.

The first words of our Constitution as a complete document are “We the People of the United States”. The first obvious question is who are the people of the United States? If you Google the question you get 86,200,000 hits in 0.27 seconds. No wonder there is so much confusion, if it takes a computer 0.27 second to come up with a list of answers that long, consider how long it would take a person to read the information. The correct answer is a relatively simple one, below find exerts from the U.S. immigration homepage:

Citizenship through Naturalization

A citizen of the United States is a native-born, foreign-born, or naturalized person who owes allegiance to the United States and who is entitled to its protection. In addition to the naturalization process, the United States recognizes the U.S. citizenship of individuals according to two fundamental principles: jus soli, or right of birthplace, and jus sanguinis, or right of blood.

The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees citizenship at birth to almost all individuals born in the United States or in U.S. jurisdictions, according to the principle of jus soli. Certain individuals born in the United States, such as children of foreign heads of state or children of foreign diplomats, do not obtain U.S. citizenship under jus soli.

Certain individuals born outside of the United States are born citizens because of their parents, according to the principle of jus sanguinis (which holds that the country of citizenship of a child is the same as that of his / her parents). The U.S. Congress is responsible for enacting laws that determine how citizenship is conveyed by a U.S. citizen parent or parents according to the principle of jus sanguinis. These laws are contained in the Immigration and Nationality Act.

Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is conferred upon a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The general requirements for administrative naturalization include:

  • a period of continuous residence and physical presence in the United States;
  • residence in a particular USCIS District prior to filing;
  • an ability to read, write, and speak English;
  • a knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government;
  • good moral character;
  • attachment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution; and,
  • favorable disposition toward the United States.

All naturalization applicants must demonstrate good moral character, attachment, and favorable disposition. The other naturalization requirements may be modified or waived for certain applicants, such as spouses of U.S. citizens. Applicants should review the materials listed under “Related Links” and carefully read the N-400 application instructions before applying.

Note: Recent changes in immigration law and USCIS procedures now make it easier for U.S. military personnel to naturalize (see Naturalization Information for Military Personnel).

Citizenship through Immigration “Green Card”

Apply for lawful permanent residence (LPR), or “green cards”. A “green card” gives you official immigration status (Lawful Permanent Residency) in the United States. The two paths for obtaining a lawful permanent residency or “green card” they are:

  • Immigration through a Family Member
  • Immigration through Employment

Find complete details on how to establish U.S. Citizenship at http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/ . If a person chooses America as their homeland, there is a lawful process, and it does not have 86,200,000 opinions. Thank the Lord God that America is a land of opportunity. As American citizens we should insure the lawyer and politicians are representing the Citizens of America properly and upholding the laws if our great nation. United we stand and divided we fall the choice is yours to make.
