The Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson reads, “All men are created equal.” However, the interpretation of men was originally meant to represent white men only (not Africans, nor women or Indians). Eighty some odd years later Abraham Lincoln reiterated this sentiment in his Gettysburg address, “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” Where these definitions similar or changed for Lincoln? More importantly, is the definition of men interpreted the same today, as it was in 1776. Hopefully, the moral law that dispenses justice as an artesian well will quench the thirst for justice for every citizen of Earth.
The absence of justice produces the proliferation of tyranny; which results in oppression, inequality, hunger, poverty, crime, etc. Justice must fade if those who advocate inequality shall remain empowered. A government for the people of the people and by the people is a myth. Ruling classes through the world relied on excluding people from entry into the most influential realms of society. These traditional barriers are quickly becoming arcane because of the accessibility of knowledge and the freely open connectivity to information that anybody can obtain. http://reginaldboswell.hubpages.com/hub/IMPACTOFTHEINTERNETONAMERICACULTURE#!
Facts must catch up to Reality
The facts are yes, Africans were brought here in chains and our ancestors suffered in slavery and were stripped of every ounce of decency and betrayed by humanity while perpetrators grimaced and stood in the hallowed halls of justice under the inscription of the credo reading, “all men are created equal.” These are the facts but the principle reality, adhered by nature was written: “all men are created equal and are endowed with the unalienable rights of liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” This reality was not a fact when written because of the proliferation of slavery, but because this reality is founded upon an immutable spiritual law, American became a strong nation. With every passing generation the words liberty parted the lips of young Americans which inspired hope contrary to the defacto religion practiced and supported through a litany of laws meant to oppress non-whites in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
When a strong foundation remains a house can still stand; America suffered the Civil War but grew stronger because God was bringing people to a place named, today! The society needed to produce a culture that crafted Industry (the satellites, planes, automobiles, etc.) needed before return of Christ. Just as Greece provided a language to connect the various tongues of the world and Rome provided the roads, the Persians provided the administration, Israel produce Jesus and America’s role was to provide technology that would soon culminate all human history in favor of creating the environment for Christ’s return.
Liberty and Justice for all
Liberty is the foundation of Prosperity and Peace in any environment. People thrive when they are free in an environment: to maximize gifts and talents free from oppression. Man is only truly free when Christ is honored, that is why you greatness whenever you see Christ receiving the Glory. The Foundation of the house must remain the same but you can change the curtains or paint the house. Christ is the foundation and bedrock of the church, the confession of Christ as Lord must not change! You can change the method for soul winning but you must not change the confession that Jesus is Lord. The prelude of any testimony should be: Jesus is Lord and this is only communicated to one’s spirit by the Spirit. Flesh and blood doesn’t recognize Jesus as Lord of its own accord, Flesh must be brought under subjection to the Spirit of God which always says “Jesus is Lord” this is the foundation of the system of government that we call the church.
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Corinthians 3:17).
