Let me begin by saying that I believe that the United States Constitution is one of the greatest governing documents ever written. So, why would I say it is a blueprint for destruction? To answer that, we must first understand what the Constitution does not say. The Constitution does not say that for it to be an effective governing document, the nation which adopts it must be populated by bible-believing Christians. The Constitution does not say this, but John Adams did. He said:
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
The historical context of Adams' statement can only mean he was talking about people who were committed to the Bible as the only infallible rule of faith and practice. The Constitution in the hands of anyone but Christians who believed the Bible is destined to become a handbook for tyranny and oppression.
The Constitution was written by men who could not conceive of an America that would reject Christianity. This assumption is becoming our founding document's greatest liability.
The Constitution offers no guarantee it will not become a document which enables tyrannical rule. All that is necessary for this to happen is for the people it governs to ignore God and his law. What better reason can there be to point your family to the necessity of Jesus Christ and his gospel.
Our nation has relegated the living God of the Bible to democratic parity in which all religions are considered equal. After all, this is now considered the American way. Christianity has given way to post-modern spirituality. Spirituality means that religion is whatever you want to make it to be. No one shall say that One God is better than another. This is now deemed to be unconstitutional!
