Faith..

Question: Is “faith” a creation of man, ..or is “man” a creation of faith?

             Tim Tebow – A Man of Faith          

According to Webster: Faith, (in context) Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.

Does everyone have Faith?

 Leap of Faith

In my personal opinion; “Absolutely!”

Faith in What?

That depends…

Personally, I have faith in God, I have faith in myself, and I have faith in Nature.

Question: Is there anything that I don’t have faith in?

Response: Yes, ..the Obama administration.

Question: Why?

Response: Because in the three years, three months, and three days, (as of today) that he has been in office, he has not done one thing to better my life or please me.

Question: Do I personally feel slighted by Barack Obama?

Response: Absolutely.

Question: Why?

Response: Because I am a 70-year-old American citizen that’s spent 46 years in the American workforce providing for myself, my family, and for the government by paying my due taxes on time and without prejudice. I am also a veteran of Vietnam, and a member in good standing in the VFW. I also  take pride in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing along, (albeit with a somewhat lacking voice) when “our” National Anthem is played. Although it may crack a smile on George Soros and Warren Buffett’s faces, ..I both love and respect America.

I also believe in God, as “in my opinion,” it would take a total idiot not to.

Accordingly, now that I’ve drawn out any and all agnostics and atheists who may read my blather? I suppose I should get on with backing up my blather.

According to Webster: ac·knowl·edg·ment, (in context) The act of admitting or owning to something. 2. Recognition of another’s existence, validity, authority, or right.

AMERICA ACKNOWLEDGES GOD…

From the very beginning, American public documents have acknowledged and given tribute to God. The first Charter of Virginia (1606) granted the king’s authority to launch a British colony in the New World. After naming the persons receiving the grant, the charter began:

We, greatly commending, and graciously accepting of, their Desires for the Furtherance of so noble a Work, which may, by the Providence of Almighty God, hereafter tend to the Glory of his Divine Majesty, in propagating of Christian Religion to such People, as yet live in Darkness and miserable Ignorance of the true Knowledge and Worship of God…”

Using similar language, the Pilgrims of Plymouth set forth the purpose of their government in the first few words of the Mayflower Compact:

In the NAME OF GOD, AMEN…Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country…

The Declaration of Independence, drafted by Thomas Jefferson, looked to the “laws of nature and of nature’s God” and to the unalienable rights of men given “by their Creator” to justify the colonists break from Great Britain The signers of this historic document acknowledged their trust in God by appealing to “the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions,” and pledging to defend the Declaration “with a firm reliance on the protection of DIVINE PROVIDENCE.”

It was Jefferson who also drafted the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom (1786), a forerunner of the First Amendment, which prohibited government control of religion because:

Whereas, Almighty God hath created the mind free; that all attempts to influence it by temporal punishment… are a departure from the plan of the Holy Author of our religion, who, being Lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either.

Since its earliest days, the leaders of our republic have acknowledged God’s hand in America.

George Washington 

In his first inaugural address, George Washington confessed dependence upon God and His providence in the affairs of the United States:

“It would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States Government. No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token on providential agency.”

 

IN GOD WE TRUST

One the most sought after documents on the planet.

 

Just ask George Soros ..or Warren Buffett, ..or the U.S. Treasury.

..not that “they” (Dollars) aren’t equally sought by the “rank-and-file,” albeit, ..at least “in my humble opinion,” ..with higher moral and ethical standards.

Standards, that by “my measure,” are diminishing, if not by the hour, ..then by the day under the Obama administration.

According to Webster: stan·dards (in context) An acknowledged measure of comparison for quantitative or qualitative value; a level of moral conduct.

If the anti-God attitude towards “Christianity” in our current society is a measure of our current administration’s doctrine, then I would have to conclude that Barack Obama is not a Christian. Not that I believe that he is Muslim, ..due to the fact that I believe that Muslims, ..although “contrary” to what I believe, ..have faith in what they believe in.

 

As for Barack Obama, alluding to his behavior in leading and governing America, I don’t believe that he believes in, ..or has faith in anything. I believe that the man is driven completely by his sloth and his desires.

According to Webster: de·sire, To wish or long for; want.

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
