John Adams stated,
"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."
"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion (Biblical Christianity). Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious (Christian) people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
"A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever."
Today, we as a nation have forsaken our founder’s warnings and mandates and have replaced and sought hard after a godless, decadent and lawless system. We have corrupted ourselves as a nation and have reaped the whirlwind, socially and fiscally. The Bill of Rights has become the Bill of “my self-centered lawless” Rights. The First Amendment of “freedom of speech” has become the lawless right of “do or say as thou wilt” regardless to how vile or decadent!
The question to ask ourselves is this, if Almighty God takes all of our worldly possessions away (as Job had), that we may be drawn closer to Him and bring much fruit for His glory, will it be well with our soul? Today, believers are much distracted in seeking temporal worldly fiscal security while placing our heavenly calling in the closet (Rev. 3:15-20). Woe unto us if we preach NOT the Gospel of Jesus Christ in these last hours before the Day of the Lord arrives (1 Cor. 9:16)! For indeed we must be fully redeeming the time and hours, knowing what our Savior’s will is for our lives (Eph. 5:16-17).
Our nation's decadent philosophy is the ever singing chorus of, "eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die" (Eccl. 8:15, Isa. 22:13)! This narcissistic suicidal and callous mindset has increased our lawless bent and our nation’s moral and fiscal condition to dire and critical.
