Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness

At one point our country was the strongest, wealthiest country in the world. Now it has become a broken cesspool of violence, greed, control, and evil. When our country was founded, it was founded on Godly principals. Our founding fathers knew if we as a people put God first, our constitution would stand in the face of adversity and protect the people from any oppressing, over reaching government.

Throughout history we have learned that any country, nation, state, or people that put God first are always a blessed people, as well as protected by our creator. Each account in history shows when the people stopped putting God first and instead choosing to worship their idols and false gods their kingdoms, nations, cites, states, and countries have fallen. They not only were destroyed, but became a mere blot of ink on a page in a history book only to be remembered as a fallen empire. From the Roman Empire, to Hitler's Germany the list goes on and on. The ultimate proof that our God is a jealous God and will have no other gods before Him.

Psalm 67: (KJV)

"God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Se'lah. That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations. Let the people praise thee. O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon the earth. Se'lah  Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him. "

The establishment and wording in our constitution was founded on the principles of God and his values, "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness" . 2 Cor 3:17 "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
