For reasons beyond our current upcoming elections, current status of democracy, or moral degeneration, I am driven to make a little forgotten fact/truth of history repeat itself.

At the time of “our” immigration from Europeans to Americans…the flee was from “religious” persecutions to “freedom”. In common tongue…we wanted to read the Word of God for ourselves! In the European nations the fight to get a Bible into print for the masses was a costly one. Then to get the “Church” which had truthfully and wrongfully weaved its way into politics and therefore “heads of state” or government; to recognize the right of commoners’ to read the Bible at home was essentially viewed as taking power away from the “powers that be” ie: the “Church/government”.

This is why we came…what birthed this nation. Not the fight to remove God from community! The government had used God as power for themselves, realizing that from Him came the basic ability to comprehend moral and upright behavior. The Bible taught these things first…in fact…invented it!  And as every human ever conceived can attest…the 10 Commandments can be viewed as rules to live by that can be used for control rather than release, relationship, and freedom; which was the purpose of God in giving them…not control! Though none can argue, get a set of rules that keep humans – human and much can be accomplished! Hence the use of keeping the higher ups with the power to read and give interpretation to the Word of God to the masses. So…Tyndale among countless others lost their lives way before America became a thought…to fight for the Spirit of God to be allowed to imprint Itself through the Word to anyone who had eyes or fingers and a desire to know God for themselves.
THIS is why America is America!

And what has it become since its declaration of “independence”?
Is it held as an honor to be able to read your Bible everyday? Can anyone really go back and find when that costly fight became a distant memory and religion took its place? I am heavy-hearted at how distant common sense has become and simple dependance on God has lost its appeal.

Obama and politics; big corporations and economy are NOT the reason our freedoms have eroded. Not anymore than Rome was the blame for it in Jesus’ day. Or Kings in the Old Testament days.

The right to read and learn no matter a persons class or station came with our birth as a nation. In honor of The Book that we now had the “right” to read…this was the first book anyone was taught to read in our schools way back then. Huh, guess the rationale was, kill two birds with one stone, or if you’re going to do it; do it right from the start. Teach one to read what produces life, and life will be lived not just read. It goes along with the old saying; teach a man to clean a fish and he can eat a meal, teach him how to fish and feed him for life!

The grace of God has been lavished, even though man takes the grace and forgets it! That is how you know its God’s grace. He gives it anyway…no matter what we do with it. If you really want to teach your children what America was formed for…get out your Bible and begin to read to them, teach them to read it, and trust God to do the rest. This is our God given right, not to vote, not to speak, not to do whatever we want, but to do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah 🙂
