The Sum of the Issue

In the first book of Moses called Genesis we find in Chapter 1 verse 27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created he them.” We have been gifted among all creatures with a body possessing locomotion and dexterity, a mind capable of reason, deduction, understanding, learning and will, and a spirit that seeks communion with its Maker. Taken together we are triune beings made in God’s image. These are eternal facts; and debate of the obvious is nothing more than distraction.

     So why are there wars and rumors of wars? Simply stated since the fall of Adam, man has been in possession of a defective nature, called a sin nature. That nature seeks pleasure, is selfish, lusts, is capable of jealousy, violence, revenge, duplicity and greed, is filled with pride and seeks to deny personal responsibility for it all. The human propensity for depravity, cruelty and horror is well documented; yet when government day care called schools experience a violent atrocity the instrument of the atrocity is blamed as the cause. Why is this? It is more convenient to place blame upon the object than upon the individual.

     If there is no God then there is no accountability. If there is no accountability then each man is free to do that which satisfies his nature; thus conflict arises. As conflicts escalate defective men without virtue are attracted to the potential of grasping, power, wealth and status thus succumbing to the level of the demagogue; saying whatever is necessary to a populous with itchy ears so as to be promoted, elected or chosen. As more and more of these individuals become involved in the body politic the body politic becomes defective and is infected with a cancerous-like growth of permissible greed, power, lust and pride; which smothers and destroys men of virtue who seek to do otherwise.

     This cycle has repeated for centuries and its evidence is available for any person to learn and comprehend. Unfortunately, most folk are ignorant of these facts as they do not read; and some who do read only read defective propaganda.

     In the second book of Moses called Exodus, Chapter 20 versus 7-17, we learn that God issued Ten Commandments suitable for a civilized people to build a future of prosperity and promise. History teaches that when a people adhere to these commandments their future is assured; but woe to the people who abandon them. This is an eternal fact.

     History proves the Sovereign States of the American Union were formed by Christian men possessing Christian virtue. Those who say otherwise are simply wrong or are lying for selfish reasons. When America jettisoned God in order to justify wickedness and perverse behavior America became marked for doom as so many other nations throughout history.

     The great organism in Washington that exists to consume the labor and fruits of the labor of its subjects is too large and defective for human hands and minds. It is out of control and the only reliable answer can be found in II Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” That also is eternal fact.

     As a people Americans have abandoned their duty. Solomon the wisest man who ever lived stated it precisely in Ecclesiastes 12:13, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter; Fear God and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” And this is an eternal fact and the sum of the issue.
