“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”
The words above were crafted by the founding fathers of the United States of America. Unfortunately, as times have changed worldviews have challenged citizens to reconsider their beliefs. Subsequently, a constitutional crisis has arisen. Do you hold to the originalists of the the past or view the constitution as a living document, open to interpretation?
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come, John 16:13.
This current dilemma is creating a divide, splitting people into one of two categories. Individuals either seek to uphold the law and do what’s right in their own mind. This progressive mindset is causing some representatives within cities, counties and states to embrace illegal aliens, trying to establish sanctuary areas. Although the motives may be pure, these leaders are actually aiding and abetting some criminals in the name of social justice.
In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit, Judges 17:6.
Any time laws and regulations are seen as optional, chaos often ensues. This sort of arbitrary enforcement can lead to confusion, favoritism and loopholes. In some cases, police officers are viewed as the enemy, an obstruction to freedom. If this social climate spreads, hope for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness fades. As America struggles to get back on track, may God help us all before a constitution crisis destroys the future of this land of opportunity.
