Just speaking with a friend on an argument he had with a liberal and a thought came to mind I wanted to share.
Here's the reality, and I'm sorry if you don't "get it", that's not my concern. There is only ONE truth. A million opinions on that single truth do not a million truths make.
WE ARE NOT EQUAL. NEVER HAVE BEEN AND NEVER WILL BE. THERE IS ONLY ONE ME AND ONLY ONE YOU - FOREVER.
God made each of us different. Different heights, weights,
shapes, voices, gifts, colors, races, languages, all developed and formed to the extent of our
experiences and understanding...and all for a reason - HIS reason.
We're all different AND IN THAT LIES OUR SECOND GREATEST STRENGTH (The
first being our faith in God).
But mankind has ALWAYS known from
the dawn of civilization that although not all ARE equal, all SHOULD BE
TREATED as equal. From time immemorial, governments have tried and mostly
failed to effect that truth and the only person ever to do it so completely is
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sadly, we do not always follow the model He gave us.
Our ingenious design as a
nation is such that our government recognizes that ALL RIGHTS COME FROM
GOD, not man... we are the first nation whose government is designed to
GUARANTEE those rights to ALL PEOPLE.
Let me say that again...
ALL RIGHTS COME FROM GOD.
"We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these
rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers
from the consent of the governed..."
IF IT DOESN'T COME FROM GOD, THE CREATOR OF HUMANITY, IT ISN'T A HUMAN RIGHT. It's as simple as that.
CREATED equal.... governments are created to SECURE (guarantee) those rights. Nothing more.
BUT WITH RIGHTS COMES RESPONSIBILITY
Other things you may perceive as rights are actually "privileges" granted by government and they can be added, changed, or taken away as necessary. RIGHTS ARE FOREVER, Privileges can be taken away. Your driver's license is a "privilege" irrelevent of how necessary it might seem. Voting, although we call it a right, is still a privilege granted and controlled by the government, you cannot vote under age 18 and convicted felons lose the right to vote, bear arms, etc. It is actually a privilege granted by government. Without getting into a secondary huge debate, the Second Amendment is in a sense BOTH a right and a privilege. It is a RIGHT because it first and foremost SECURES YOUR LIBERTY AGAINST A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT and secondly it protects innocent life that comes from God and that is a sacred duty and responsibility... but it is also a privilege because it is possible to lose that right due to a felony or mental incapacity to wield such responsibility. For example.... even if you lose the right to own or carry a weapon, you ALWAYS have a right to defend yourself even if that means the use of deadly force (the RIGHT part), but you just may not be able to use a gun to do it (the PRIVILEGE part).
Democrats, Socialists, Communists, etc... all they deny that rights come
from God, or deny God altogether, wrongly declaring that all rights come from
Government THEREBY REPLACING GOD WITH GOVERNMENT.
LIBERALS WORSHIP THE FALSE IDOL OF GOVERNMENT
GOVERNMENT AS GOD and will always continue to do so for they expect the government to provide all things for them, while they
sit back doing nothing to the detriment of others. They elect
narcissistic leaders that act as though they ARE God and whom lord over people as
though they have some real power over them. Maybe they wish to be ruled by those types but not me, not now, not ever.
some ways, I say LET IT ALL FAIL to prove to them that Government is NOT
GOD. Once they are shaken to their very core and their whole world has
crumbled down around them, they will once again find themselves on their
knees praying to the one true GOD and begging us for help.
May God Bless America and May God Bless and Protect you all!
