Jonesboro resident Jon Hubbard had this letter to the editor recently published in the Jonesboro Sun. It is an excellent letter. Burkasrugly
America was founded by visionaries who well understood that if any nation were established with ideals of freedom and liberty among it’s primary components, that nation must be guided by principles and standards that protected those components in order for that nation to survive and prosper. America was established upon Christian principles and values, and because of this, God has mightily blessed America throughout it’s history! It is amazing that so many people who have lived all or a large part of their lives in these United States still have no idea of why this nation was established as it was. Those taking exception with my LTE certainly have every right to do so, but in doing so they sometimes also provide ample evidence as to how and why we are losing our country to those who have never understood what it means to be a American.
America is a nation of laws, and those laws are protected by the US Constitution, that most unique document of government that has long separated America from all other nations of this world. President John Adams, one of our Founding Fathers, said “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Regardless of whether one is a Christian, an atheist, or anything else, any nation established upon the Biblical principles such as the Ten Commandments would be a much better place in which to live and raise a family. Evidently, some people just cannot allow themselves to understand why that would make any difference.
There are many things happening today which just do not make any sense, such as how anyone can accept, and even support, the murder of yet-to-be-born children as legal or proper. After all is said and done, one truth still remains. The nation that honors God will be blessed by God, but the nation that rebels against God will be judged by God. If we as a nation continue to distance ourselves from those things that made us great, America will one day find itself upon the garbage heap of history!
