Missing Piece

Missing Piece
Kevin Bryant

There have been several times when I leave the house in the mornings with the gut feeling that I forgot something and usually I find out later that I was right. When my kids were growing up, they would come in late and give me some excuse as to why. Sometimes I was satisfied with the reason and others, there just seemed to be something missing from the story. When Obama or any of the last 9 presidents give a speech, the speech is on a grand scale but the substance seems to be missing. The leaders in congress are the same way. They tell you on a grand scale exactly what you want to hear but not any of the particulars. Nancy Pelosi says Tea Party people want the elderly to eat dog food but lied to get to the point where she could make that statement. Reid, Boehner and Obama all lied to the American people about cutting 38 Billion in spending when most of the money “cut” was not going to be spent or was a one-time appropriation and was never going to be renewed anyway. They all told a grand story but left out many of the pieces to cover up the lie.

I have for some time now wondered about this. Tell a lie to your neighbor and later you ask God for forgiveness and according to the bible if you ask for forgiveness, you shall receive it. Do you think God forgives politicians who on a grand scale lie to the American people? Do you think the politicians even bother to ask for forgiveness or do they attempt to justify the lie in their heads claiming it’s for the greater good?

One of the first things I ever learned in church was that God helps those who help themselves. Now this can’t always be true for if it were, then God is helping the politicians who are helping themselves to our money and taking our liberties to enrich their power. Endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights. No, I don’t see God helping politicians take back that which he granted to all.

We the People have lost about 90% of the control of our government in my opinion. Government has been taken over mainly by corrupt union leaders like those of SEIU and the AFL-CIO. Those in government owe much to those associated with ACORN, GE, Planned Parenthood and a host of George Soros funded organizations. You no longer need White House Lobbyist because many of them are now part of the administration and they hate competition. These unions and organizations have attacked the Tea Party and 9-12 organizations without hesitation. They have no fear because they know Eric Holder will not hold them accountable for their actions.

In old Scotland, the Scots never had a single victory over the English until the clans united in a common cause. In America, the army gathering together to fight the English were few until preachers started recruiting at the end of service from the pulpit. Churches can lose their tax exempt status if they involve themselves into politics, but can they lose it if they preach about the evils that come with a power concentrated and held by a mere few instead of many? This I doubt.

Americans are slowing being pulled into government bondage. I think we are on the right track in resisting this government power grab but I also think we are missing a piece of armament to use against government; the word of God. Our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principals. Leaving God out of the fight is like taking a knife to a gun fight. It will inflict damage, but unfortunately you will never get close enough to use it. If you want to beat the government, then you have to use the laws and principals that the government was founded on, and God was a huge part of it.
