If we canít trust in God, who can we trust?
Christmas is drawing nigh, so let's focus on the reason for the season and think about that. We'll go back to the other cares and concerns when the Yuletide season is past.
Thanks to some friends scattered here and abroad, we have a few appropriate thoughts that relate to Christmas, if only in an oblique way. I appreciate all of them and welcome more on a variety of topics of general interest. Today's topic: "So Be It." I do not know where this originated.
So, if the U.S. government determines that it is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then so be it. And if that same government determines that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used or on a government installation, then so be it.
And since they already have prohibited any prayer in the schools, on which they deem their authority, then so be it.
I say "So be it," because I am a law-abiding U.S. citizen. And also because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions. I would like to think that those people have the American people's best interest at heart.
But, you know what else I'd like?
Since we can't pray to God and cannot post His Ten Commandments in government buildings, I don't believe the government and its employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from, so many facets of American life.
I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday and Easter as well as on Sundays. After all, those are just another day.
I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the Christmas break. After all, that is just another day.
I'm thinking a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved if all government offices and services would work on Christmas, Good Friday and Easter. It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be politically correct.
In fact, I think that our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshiping God) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day?
What do you think?
If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the minority opinions and begin once again to represent the majority of ALL the American people.
Feel free to pass this on, because if we can't trust in God, who can we trust?
There you are. Something to think about and act accordingly. Merry Christmas to all.
