We are A Nation of Laws, not Men…

It’s appalling how out of control the justice system seems these days. One of the things in my list of Ten Things We Can Agree on as Americans is what John Adams said about our fledling government, “We are a Government of Laws, not Men.” A truly free and prosperous country cannot have the disparity we see in our legal system and survive.

Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?!?

I had some interesting responses to my podcast last week. One person said that “I’m not so sure all Americans can – or will – agree on any of them.” referring to the “Ten Things We Can Agree On For America”. series I have started. The main point of my exercise here has been to say we need something that we can aspire to rather than someone we can despise.

10 Values We Can Agree on for America

We often allow our opposition to define us. This is not healthy for us or for them, as it tends to relegate our conversation to an “us and them” status. On this week’s podcast, I begin a multi-podcast look at some Values I think we should agree on so that we might maintain our republic. Let me know what you think as well.

Here are the 10 Things:

  • We are a sovereign nation
  • We are a nation of laws, not men
  • Our rights are protected by, but not granted by the government
  • Citizens are the supreme inhabitants of this nation
  • Our government should operate within its means
  • All people are created equal
  • The Constitution of the United States is to be followed by and protected by our elected officials
  • All government workers serve the people
  • Wealth belongs to those who generate it
  • We are a representative republic

Don’t Tell Me What to Do! Part Deux!

A few months ago, I did an episode about the desire for others to tell us what to do. It focused on the desire for those in authority to instruct us on what to do. In this episode, I bring specific thoughts and ideas to the problem. It’s no longer right for us to be silent when we know we are being deceived. As a matter of fact, it never was!

Giving is Good for You – Part 3

Luke 6:38 has been the basis for the last three episodes. We’ve talked about why you should give, that you should expect a return and, on today’s episode, I talk about how the return is determined. It’s important to keep in mind that giving is a flow and stopping the flow at the beginning or the end will yield unneeded difficulties.

Giving is Good for You – Part 2

Luke 6:38 is the basis for our podcast last episode and this one. I talk about why we give, the importance of receiving as part of the process and who determines the return.  This week I teach about how much we get back and why it is an error to not expect a return.

God has a plan for you, and we’re here to help you find it
