Of course, most of us wisely avoided being placed into a catatonic state by viewing the Democratic presidential “debates” last week. If you subjected yourself to any of the reporting on what was covered, you would have noted that one thing they all have in common is a desire to make sure there are no provisions for protection of any unborn children. The other common theme among them was their far greater concern for citizens of other countries than for citizens of their own country.
As we approach the day where Americans traditionally have celebrated the birth and growth of our nation as the land of liberty and opportunity, many of those liberals and socialists among the Democratic candidates seem more intent on denigrating and dismantling our American heritage.
Our founding fathers had something in common that virtually all of last week’s aspiring presidential candidates lack. Our founding fathers knew the Scriptures and were greatly influenced by the Bible. Even those who were not professing Christians, men such as Ben Franklin and Thomas Paine, were well versed in the Scriptures. Their writing and thinking reflected that wisdom.
Regardless, for us Christians, our confidence is not resting in the institutions of government or even in the heritage of our American nation; our confidence rests in the God Who governs in the affairs of all of mankind.
