Face of America

Protect Democracy and Our Way of Life

Our Founders

The choice to embrace God (or not to) and share our faith with others as a source of strength is the gift of freedom that the founding fathers fought to establish. I appreciate the right to share and exercise my faith, especially when I see the suffering of others who do not have this right. It is upon this foundation that the fabric of our Constitution is formed.

Brave souls have sacrificed a great deal to protect this right and many still are sacrificing for us today. I am forever indebted to all those who gave so much, enduring great difficulties and hardships to keep this freedom alive and strong for all of us to enjoy today. We cannot allow the tendency of a few (especially judges) to subvert the privilege of exercis-ing our faith. Of course, we let them do that when we will not stand up for ourselves. We can help protect this right by voting and by sending letters to our representatives.

Part of our nation’s pledge, “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all” means so much to most Americans. It reflects the many sacrifices made on our behalf. We must never forget what this pledge means to us who live in a land where all citizens can enjoy this freedom. We should respect and even revere their sacrifices. We need to remember the enormous price that paid for the freedom we now profit from, and that our future generations will benefit from as well.

May God help us if we ever come to the point that we forget or show a blatant disregard for the significance of this pledge or, heaven forbid, we neglect to show an allegiance to the United States of America. This is why we must be united in protecting our freedom. Nevertheless, if we become neglectful or complacent about this right, I trust that somehow God will re-mind us of the price tag for this privilege.

It is so sad that Americans have forgotten the values that the Founding Fathers had when they established the Constitution and populated this land for religious and political freedom.

We have been blessed greatly by what they did and by the sacrifices they made to develop this land and make it the great nation that it has been throughout the ages. However, America is NOT seen in as good of light as it used to be because we have forgotten GOD and why He is woven into the fabric of our Constitution and our way of life.

I hope we will all do our part in remembering the blessings we have enjoyed because of our faith and trust in God. I also hope that we will espouse those same values as the earlier settlers and that we will influence those in our circles of association to remember these things as well.

I welcome your comments.

I HAVE BEEN ASKED WHY I POSTED THIS VIDEO.

Let me explain the reason I wrote this posting with the video. I received a comment from a reader who said my meaning was not clear. Let me clarify this for you.

I came across the video shown above and felt moved by the picture of Christ and the implication that He was behind the Constitution.

The video made me think about the Founding Fathers and how they believed they were guided by the Lord when they drew up the Constitution. Then I thought about how far we have moved from the original intent of the Founding Fathers and the ideals that were behind the writing of our laws and civil rights.

I realized how blessed we are to live in a nation that has been so rewarded with prosperity and International standing. These thoughts brought me to the realization that we are not as blessed as we used to be. Why? Because, at almost every turn, we are busily removing God from public view and forgetting the values that were purposely woven into the Constitution.

The idea of showing this video is to hopefully influence others to think about the same things depicted the painting and perhaps contemplate on how blessed we have been as a nation. We still can become a more blessed nation and improve our international standing when those who represent us in government move closer to the principles that once made this nation great.

I hope this explanation clarifies the reader’s question.
