Making the Complex Simple
MAKING THE COMPLEX SIMPLE
William G Burmer
Over the Holidays I have for the better part turned my radio off, I hardly watched TV as I was tired of hearing what is wrong with my country and some of the people who “run it!”
I have had a desire to express, a kind of optimism, and hope that sometimes flickers, and then eventually burns within us from time to time. Each of us in our hearts knows that we have been blessed to be American. What is befitting and justified is before us, Our Constitution. It needs no interpretation by lawyers and judges. It is our decree as expressed in its preamble. Its words are simple, to the point, exacting, without equivocation or need of added interpretation. Our founders with the help of almighty God created a perfect document for a liberty loving people. We only need to continue as we have this past fall to remember that politicians are like diapers, they need to be changed often, and occasionally with a pin over our nose, wiped clean.
A humble man once said: "When I despair I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have always been tyrants and murderers and for a time they can seem invincible but in the end they always fall. Think on it, Always." - Mohandas K. Ghandi - 1869-1948.
We must champion those who speak out against evil and tyranny. We must keep ourselves informed and do not be discouraged.” Work as if everything depends upon you, because it does;” how often have we heard that phrase in our past? With faith know in the end, with God’s help, we shall be the victors. What are needed are a virtuous people who will turn to God in a spirit of humility, looking to their families, and neighbors as equals, united, each striving for a better tomorrow.
With all our doing there of course needs to be some order tempered by a personal sense of responsibility and accountability; this provides an inward-motivating discipline that makes self-government possible. The restored Constitution under God’s law provides an atmosphere for unlimited freedom for creative expression, a chance to choose. Choice, what a beautiful gift, if used properly it elevates the receiver and blesses those around him or her.
In a truly free society Gods children are able to prosper, after all work always produces’ prosperity. The principles mentioned in above paragraphs coupled with work produces a society which, the Apostle James called “the perfect law of (for) liberty.” James 1:25. Word in Parenthesis added.
The first step has been taken; people are becoming educated to know of the simplicity of what is the Law of the Land that is, the Constitution for the United States of America. Next is a continued call to action. The principles of the Constitution were not meant only be studied, but to be restored and put into full operation. With God’s help this will be done eventually, what is needed for now is a cleansing. This process is neither simple nor is it complex. What are needed are a people who love God and eschew evil.
