to be free doesnt mean we can do whatever we want.it means we have a responsibilty to do what is moral and right according to our christian and judeo beleifs.
“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never can be.” - Thomas Jefferson
The wisdom contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America, was the combined wisdom of seventy generations of culture. The Founders were religious, Christian men who studied the governments of countries and kingdoms from the Sumerians, to ancient Israel, to the Romans and Anglo Saxons. They were the beneficiaries of the wisdom of men like Marcus Tullius Cicero, and Baron Charles de Montesquieu, and of the laws and structure of the government revealed to Moses. This combined hard-won wisdom, received after an untold amount of human misery and bloodshed throughout the vista of history, has been handed down to us to either learn from or to ignore. Fortunately our Founders learned these lessons. Unfortunately, at the peril of our own children, we have forgotten them.
Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams
we fall on this beleief that we are free to do whatever we want and this includes sin and immorality.
we are inundated with tv and movies which show life as a sex filled free for all.every tv show and movie has sex.men and women not married and just "playing the field and doing what feels good"
this is our downfall.
we are so hypnotized by this internet and reality shows that we ignore the freedoms we are entrusted with.
we are slowly being invaded and we go about our lives like its ok.
we teach our kids its alright to steal and lie.one example is the free cable boxes you used to be able to get.i was at a family dinner once and someone was talking about how he uses one and gets everything free.i brought up that there were children there and he was teaching them that stealing was ok.his response was"well the cable companies are robbing me so why not?".jeez,i said if you cant afford it dont buy it.
its a disgrace,we see celebrities do all sorts of things,divorce,babies outr of wedlock and carry on.its out of control.
