Translated it means: Love of God, Family, Country leads me !
As I have said before on this BLOG, I have three imperatives in my life they are God – Family – Country. They have been my focus for more than fifty years and the reason for this BLOG.
I make no apology for my belief in God and his Son, Jesus Christ, as my Savior and Redeemer of the World. I make no apology for my belief, along with Benjamin Franklin, that God rules in the affairs of men and of nations. I make no apology for my belief, along with Thomas Jefferson, that He is our Creator from whom we receive our unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and Property. The person who wants freedom to enjoy their God-given unalienable rights must first accept God’s law of choice and accountability. The personal responsibility for their own conduct and the consequences of their own choices. It was Jim English who taught me that “Freedom is not divisible. ‘Religious’ and ‘political’ liberty are but two peas in the same pod. The ‘pod’ is a gift of God. It is the divine principle which equates freedom with individual responsibility.” I make no apology for my belief that neither an individual nor a nation can get ahead by leaving God behind.
I make no apology for my belief in the traditional family, of one man and one woman with their posterity. I make no apology for my belief that this is what God, our Father, intended when he placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. I make no apology for my belief that husbands and fathers are to be “hunters and gathers” of their families and that wives and mothers are to be the “nurturer” of their posterity. I make no apology for my belief that wives and children have a just claim on their husbands and fathers as protectors – spiritually and temporally. I make no apology for my belief that the family is the basic unit of society and that families come together to form communities, states and nations. It is never the case that nations and states are divided into families. Because of this, nations and states are the servants of their citizens – citizens are not to be the slaves of nations and states.
I make no apology for my belief that God caused this nation to rise and that it was by His providence that it became great. The greatest nation on earth. The beacon of hope and the bulwark of freedom for His children every where. A nation destined to “proclaim liberty throughout all the land [world] unto all the inhabitants thereof:” A nation destined throughout its history, in many conflicts and at the cost of the life’s blood of its citizens, to preserve the liberty and freedom of many nations, kindreds, tongues and peoples.
I make no apology for my belief that it was God in His infinite wisdom that raised up the Founding Fathers to establish our Constitutional Republic. It was through His Divine providence and inspiration that its founding documents – The Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution – were written. It is from Him that we receive our unalienable rights to life, liberty and property. It must be understood that ALL human rights come from our Father in Heaven and NOT from earthly governments. Because if government has the power and ability to bestow human rights – government has the power to rescind those rights.
I make no apology for my belief that governments are instituted by man to protect their God given unalienable rights not to destroy them. Governments should never do for their citizens what the citizens should do for themselves. Governments should always preserve the self-reliance of their citizens. I make no apology for my belief that governments can never administer Charity because Charity is never forced and government by its nature is always force. Government can only give through “social-justice” to one citizen what it has first taken from another citizen.
So my fellow patriots, when one considers all things it becomes abundantly clear that man is subservient to God who created him and gives him life. Logic then dictates that the state and nation are subservient to the citizens who give it life as stated in our Tenth Amendment:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. [Emphasis added.]
It is also clear that Proverbs 29:2 is very true: “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” I, with Benjamin Disraeli, am “weary of statesmen whom democracy has degraded into politicians.” May God grant us Statesmen who desire to right our badly listing Ship of State rather than politicians seeking their own power and the enslavement of We the People. And may free men and women everywhere understand that there are things worth dying for. Three of the greatest of these are — God, Family, Country !
