There is an old saying that goes back hundreds of years – “there are no atheists on a sinking ship.”
If you look at the works of the great philosophers of the 15th and 16th centuries that established the basis for our country, there is one thing that you won’t find – an atheist. You will find many variants of religious beliefs from the organized religions of the time to Deists (like Jefferson) but in all of their reasoning, you will find one thing present in all – a belief in God and that our rights flow from Him.
The top picture is one that is going around the FaceBook world – but it triggered a memory. I have a lot of my Dad’s WWII stuff and in there is a little pocket edition of the King James Version of the Holy Bible (New Testament) – and sure enough, the flyleaf has this printed on it.
The label of “progressive” is used to imply that these beliefs actually advance society to a higher form of existence, yet in order to achieve their brand of “achievement”, they tell us that we must leave God behind, that such a belief is “un-scientific” and archaic. Their proposition is that we don’t need God because man is now the most intelligent entity and capable of miracles. They say that this belief is based on empirical evidence.
Their form of “progress” is simply a smarter and faster way to devolve society. How far we have fallen in our quest for “progress”…
I can’t see any evidence of man progressing to the creation of the United States of America without God and I cannot imagine a future for America without Him.
Selecting a president is pretty easy when you think about it – just ask yourself which candidate and which party is more likely to have their signatures affixed to a page in a Bible given to our troops?
Think about it.
