This past week we celebrated our countries 241 st birthday (if my math is correct). On Sunday July 2nd I spoke at our church concerning the systematic wearing away of this countries Judeo Christian Heritage. According to Dr. Richard Lee, editor of The American Patriots Bible, there is at least seven Judeo Christian Principles. I would like to share them with you with a few of my own observations.

1. Dignity of Human Life- There is something fundamentally wrong with a nation that condones and encourages the termination of innocent human life. When you get a chance read Psalms 139:13-17

2. The traditional family- Read Genesis chapter 2:21-24 for the God ordained Holy union between one man and one woman.

3. A national work ethic- 2 Thess. 2:13 says “If a man doesn’t work he doesn’t eat.” We used to be a nation that offered those that had fallen on hard times a “hand up.” We have now become a nation that gives a “hand out.” This robs those receiving never ending assistance of their dignity and feeling of self-worth.

4. The right to a God centered education- I believe it is the parent’s responsibility to “train up their children in the way they should go.” I would like to see our public schools go back to teaching reading, writing and arithmetic and reign in or eliminate the teachers that are there to indoctrinate instead of teach.

5. The Abrahamic covenant- Gen. 12:1-4 “The Abrahamic Covenant states that if a person or a nation obeys God, observing the moral truths found in the Bible, that person or nation will be blessed.”

6. Common Decency- Matt. 22:39 simply put, decent nations are made up of decent people who, when faced with a situation, would do the decent and honest thing. Oh how far we have fallen!

7. Personal accountability to God- Hebrews 9:21 “Perhaps the greatest restraint for acts of evil against one's fellow man is the realization that every person and every nation of people will one day give an account for their actions to Almighty God.”

As we review these principles we can all see just how far we have strayed from our foundation. This gives us all something to pray about and work towards restoring.
