"...Faith, Hope, Love, these three, but the greatest of these is Love."

"You are so fascinated and overwhelmed with the gift of the awareness of the light of life that you have forgotten Who I Am."

   The United States of America’s Constitution was whole and functional as it originally was before any amendments. But, early endeavors to sustain its forthright freedoms of stately expression required those in charge to recognize that people, generally, are not wholly possessed with trustworthy dignity. Thus, we have the Bill of Rights and other, additional, lawful directives.

   Separation of church and state is a conceptual fallacy. Government is designed to serve people and people are designed to serve God. So it is concerning the USA where its Constitution is a representational nuptial agreement between a people and their Creator. It provides the freedom for a man in faith with his wife, in example with their family, to uphold their God ordained constitutional authority.

   As government is in service to a people led by God in Christ their households have the strengths of determination to be undivided in their attentions through their desires to live as best their circumstantial decisions can accommodate. Human minds and hearts cannot be divided to categorize loyalties that contradict sensibilities without creating stagnating turmoil associated with misaligned interests that strangle volition, inhibit industrious application of considerations, and increase the overall tax load against prosperous commerce.   (Jeremiah chapter 5)

   "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."   Please click on the image below:

   On September 17, 1787, 39 delegates from 12 states gathered in Philadelphia at the Constitutional Convention to sign the United States Constitution. For the past 225 years, the U.S. Constitution has served as the backbone for our nation, granting power to the federal government but also setting critical limits on that power.

   In 1956, Congress established Constitution week and then in 2004 designated September 17th as Constitution Day to pay respect to our founding document and give it the recognition that it deserves.

“The Founders of the Constitution of the United States of America had great faith in both revealed and rational truths that transcended time and place. They understood the Constitution to be a limited document that was consonant with, and supported, the morally ordered universe of human affairs. Today's view, in contrast, is not simply that we have an interpretable Constitution, but that we have a Constitution which must be interpreted in light of "historically situated," continually evolving notions of the individual, the state, and society. This understanding is in a considerable amount of tension with the earlier constitutionalism of limited and dispersed powers serving the "laws of nature and nature's God."  ~ Bradley Watson

   We hear much talk today about efforts to “spread democracy” in the Middle East and elsewhere. Americans quickly and easily speak of our own country as a democracy. But the founding generation were opposed to using the same description.

   Patriots such as James Madison, Benjamin Rush, and Fisher Ames described democracies as “spectacles of turbulence and contention,” “the greatest of evils,” and a “volcano, which conceals the fiery materials of its own destruction.” The delegates to the convention were concerned with free enterprise, individual liberty, limited government, and accountability, but never sought to create a pure democracy.

   They knew that such a government, in its purest form, could allow even “inflamed” majorities and “unreflective minority mob(s)” to rule. Freedom and self-government can co-exist only if devices are created to temper the momentary passions of the public, and the separation of powers of the executive office, congress,  the military, and the court under the tiered arrangement of delegated authority.

   The charter of governmental order under Moses was God’s law of works unto righteousness in the sacrificial hands of priests. God’s charter of freedom in Christ is manifested through the governmental provisions of the United States of America, and other faithing countries, in the hands of people’s households – priests/churches of magnitude with public-backed support of private determination.

   The United States Constitution established America as a Federal Republic. It was drafted to include protections for minority interests (with regard to freedoms and protections for the individual and the collective) and small states: a Senate in which each state has equal representation, a presidential veto, and supermajority requirements for certain types of governmental action.

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have."     ~ Thomas Jefferson
