Any intellect only looks like a fool
SCOTUS is supposed to represent the best legal apolitical brains in our country.
Unfortunately, it appears many of its members for the past 50+ years have left wisdom packed in their luggage someplace and never took it out to sharpen it at nearly any level.
Many Liberal and some Conservative Justices have abandoned Godly wisdom and replaced it with pure knowledge and intellect.
Our Founding Fathers
One of the things that I have done to get to the truth about our Founding Fathers is to go to the National Archives site found at archive.gov to find and read the actual letters of our Founding Fathers provided by photos on that site.
There are also text pages that make it a bit easier to read as, like us, not everyone’s penmanship was good — and besides, the documents are 200+ years old…
What made our country exceptional in the words of Alexis de Tocqueville was this:
We are the ONLY country to have invited God into the founding and foundation of our country.
As we consistently note…
God formed Israel for He loves His people,
and the people formed the USA for they so loved God.
This was not just at the national level — this WAS evident at the community, city, state, and national levels…
God was everything for most of our Colonists – you can see this for yourself in our National Archives by going through any letters, journals, and/or notes of the time.
SCOTUS Abandons Wisdom for Pure Knowledge, Intellect
On June 25, 1962, the United States Supreme Court decided in Engel v. Vitale that a prayer approved by the New York Board of Regents for use in schools violated the First Amendment by constituting an establishment of religion.
The irony is in the Supreme Court’s decision — they were doing the very same thing they said was the reason prayer was violating the 1st Amendment: every branch of government holds a prayer at the beginning of any session.
The Court found that the Establishment Clause prohibits the government from involving itself in devotional religious exercises.
Then why all the scripture and Godly wisdom etched into stone in nearly every government building?
If the Establishment Clause prohibits the government from involving itself in devotional religious exercises is true, then why didn’t they refuse to hear the case in the first place?
The following year, in Abington School District v. Schempp, the Court disallowed Bible readings in public schools for similar reasons.
Remove God from anywhere, you get what we have today – God not to be found nearly everywhere and nothing but the presence of evil otherwise.
God does NOT force His will upon us, we have to form our own will — and everyone, even those that have not read the Bible, knows what the book of Revelation is all about.
Which is wiser – honor His presence even if you don’t believe He exists only to find out He doesn’t? Or remove His presence everywhere only to find out that He does?
The Actions Of Our Founding Fathers Provide Wisdom
Now step back to the First Congress, which was in session in September and October 1774…
Their first official act, after establishing acceptable Congressional protocol and what acts needed their attention, was to have what?
This was also followed by a Bible study of 4 chapters in the Bible, per the letter penned by John Adams to his wife Abigail (you can read an excerpt from that letter here ).
It struck me then and there that if the Founding Fathers, who were forming this country were here to escape a government that mandated a religion, thought that prayer and Bible were forming any form of establishment of religion they would not have permitted in the first place.
Based on the evidence that can be found in our National Archive, is this NOT the reason they formed our country in the first place?
There is absolutely no mistake where they held God as well as their humility towards God… as well as where mankind should stand when it comes to God.
There Is a Reason For Conflict
Any time any governing body has attempted to legislate or rule against something that is causing a conflict, and they do so with an agenda of putting a stop it once and for all, they have only inflicted more pain, more conflict, more deaths, and have provided the people a sound reason to revolt.
In any country and throughout all history, there is not one case where this has not happened.
No government can legislate evil though many have tried.
When they do so, you MUST choose a side.
Failing to do so only defaults the government to the side doing the most damage.
Most of our history has been with conflict — there is a reason for that… No one can sharpen a sword with a sponge.
Anyone who wants that type of government needs only go to nearly any country elsewhere…
There are also only TWO spiritual forces – God and Satan…
This is true in nearly every faith — not religion, faith…
My own experience and observation are that most and perhaps all religions have established themselves as just perfume on a casket.
Believing in God is not enough
as even Satan believes in God…
Knowing about God is not enough
as even Satan knows about God…
Reading and memorizing scripture is not enough
as many will do so only with an agenda
to twist the content to their own liking…
What separates the two is obedience to what God wants for us…
Take or leave it as you may,
but the gist of it comes on Judgement day
as we won’t be judged by what God did for us
but by what we did for God…
Once we removed prayer and the Bible from the schools, something had to take its place…
And today we are seeing more than ample evidence of just what that something is…
By hiding behind the First Amendment, the Supreme Court has placed our country in a very vulnerable position.
They have in essence denied that either exists — God as well as Satan — and placed themselves as the final judgment, not by their words but by their actions…
God does not go against our will, we have to make a choice at every level — personal, community, State, national…
If we do not make a choice, then God stands aside and lets Satan have his way as our lack of actions and our will have dictated this to be so.
If you know your Biblical history then you know God did this before, and even if you don’t, it won’t stop Him from doing it again…
