A year or so ago, I was listening to a commentator on the radio . He mentioned that our country is in jeopardy of straying away from the principles of our Judeo Christian ethics. I wasn’t sure what exactly the “ principles of Judeo Christian ethics” were, so I did some research and here is what I discovered. According to Dr. Richard Lee (Quoted below) there are seven principles that make up our Christian Ethics.

1. Dignity of Human Life-“In the Declaration of Independence, our nation's Founding Fathers wrote that every man, woman and child has the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." All Human Life has value.

2.Traditional Family-“The biblical view of marriage and family is the basis of our society and serves as the backbone of a healthy social order.” When God’s definition of "marriage" and "family" are no longer respected, these institutions become meaningless. World history has proven over and again that preserving the traditional family is vital to the future of any great nation.” One man One woman.

3.National Work Ethic-2 Thessalonians 3:10 "For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat." Ingrained deep within the American spirit is the willingness and desire to give an honest day’s work for an honest day's pay. This independent spirit has no desire to exist on handouts from the government or siphon off a living from benevolence or friendships.”

4. The Right to a God-Centered Education.” Today’s youth are tomorrow’s future. Our nation’s first president, George Washington, reminded us of the importance of a God-centered education when he said, "Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail to the exclusion of religious principle…it is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

I don’t have the room to include the other three-Abrahamic Covenant, Common Decency and personal accountability to God but you can go to this website and read it for yourself

It’s worth reading and once read it’s worth praying for, because without a return to these principles we are in serious trouble.
