This morning I listened and read along to the entire book of Romans. My comments first and foremost on this book of the Bible are “WOW!” Paul wrote a masterpiece. We are saved first and only by grace. But our response is critical too, we believe in our heart, confess with our lips that Jesus Christ is Lord, and then we agree to follow Him – with our whole heart for the rest of our lives. I know I sometimes sound bitter or angry, and I must say I have a great dislike for our current Government, at least those in leadership in our Government, but I still say we live in the greatest Country on earth, and the freedoms we enjoy are the product of the efforts of many like-minded moral and ethical and mainly Christians over the course of our Nation’s history.
Those men and women saw fit to provide us this Government in its present form so that we – the PEOPLE – could argue and discourse with one another in order to try to keep the idea going, the idea being that we can govern ourselves, without the need of “Specialists” in high places to rule over us. That’s what the Founding Fathers believed more than anything else, they reasoned that a system of 3 branches of Government, modeled after the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, would work to provide the checks and balances needed to insure that no one branch could become so powerful that it completely diminished the other three.
What we have witnessed in recent history is an attempt by the one branch (need I say which?) to become “Supreme” in its ethics, dictates, and ultimately power. This is unacceptable to me. I have studied history my entire life and I find this so distasteful that I cannot stand idly by without saying something about it. So, if you perceive that I am angry, I am, to a certain extent, I am calling wrong – wrong, and saying that things should not be that way simply because they should not. I pray every day for my Country, I pray for the leaders, I pray they will listen to God, and that they will also listen to us – the PEOPLE. And, if you want to know with whom I am angry – it’s mostly with us – the PEOPLE – because WE LET THIS HAPPEN!
