One nation UNDER GOD!
By George Miller


September 17, 2005

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" (Edmund Burke).

So where are the voices of the majority? That is, those who know there is a God and that God has requirments of mankind, standards which, if followed, will keep peace, and stability in our social structure. It is mostly true that the freedom to tie up our culture with litigation actually has its roots in a God fearing foundation. Even anarchists have some freedom due to that foundation. But when we endeavor to cast off ALL restraints in favor of a completely self serving, every man for himself approach, we will reap the whirlwind. So perhaps some of the quiet majority could get up off their blessed assurance and get loud. Get up and act in favor of one nation UNDER GOD! Check out Psalm # 2 for some insight into the outcome of those who mock and resist a loving God.

Psalm 1
1. Why do the nations rage? Why do the people waste their time on futile plans?
2. The Kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against His anointed one. 3. "Let us break their chains, " they cry, " and free ourselves from this slavery." 4. But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them. 5. Then in anger He rebukes them, terrifying them with His fierce fury. 6. For The Lord declares, " I have placed my king on the throne in Jerusalem, my holy city." 7. the King procaims the Lord's decree,'You are my son, today I have become your father.' 8. Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the ends of the earth as your possession. 9. You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots. 10. Now then you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! 11. Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12. Submit to God's royal son, or He will become angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of your pursuits-for His anger can flare up in an instant. But what joy for all who find protection in Him!
