We, The People

We treasure freedom of speech. From that platform, we can share all that God has put on our hearts. This isn't about politics or political parties. It's about the very foundation of our country.

We've had unparalleled freedom for over 200 years. Unlike most other countries, we can practice our religious beliefs, share them, and not have to fear retribution from the government. With God's help, our Founding Fathers gave us a Republic - a government by the people and for the people.

Today, most Americans speak of our country as a democracy.  Emphasis is put on our ingenuity, our own efforts, and little recognition that it's God who has made this nation great. We have become proud, independent, and arrogant.

With everything I'm seeing around me, there's a growing sense that we're on a collision course with judgment. We cannot afford to ignore the signs of the times.

Come back to your roots, America. Return to the God of your fathers and to Judeo-Christian values.

Come back. Please. Come back.

Writers: How can we protect the rights we've taken for granted?

Readers:  How can we stand up for freedom? I'd like to hear your opinions on the subject. Let's keep it civil with no personal attacks on individuals/parties.

One of the best things we can do is pray. It is encouraging to know that God is in control, and He hears our prayers.

Hi Karen -

Yes, prayer is essential as is drawing close to the Lord and giving Him first place in our lives.

God bless,
Susan :)

Susan: I always think of the verse,"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O, Lord. my Rock and Redeemer."Ps 19:14
We have to live according to God's law in order to be worthy of His continued blessing.
