One of the highlights of the summer has been Hope’s American History class. (I love watching the videos, she doesn’t). It has spurred some great conversations. It has reminded me that this country was founded by a bunch of racist sexist idiots. I mean think about it, a country founded on the principle that all men are created equal, except for Africans, Asians, Native Americas and women. The greatness comes as those groups struggle and fight for those rights. I was watching this show tonight, and John Adams said it well. “People are in need of strong governance. restraint. Most men are weak and evil and vicious.”
God knew this about us which is why He gave us laws to live by. People who try to get away from big government are really running from God being able to tell them how to live. He is not instructing to keep you in a cage or limit your freedom. He is instructing to keep you from killing all the people you will need throughout your life.
imagine if the person who could fix global warming was from Iran, or the person who developed the cure for HIV was in Syria.
God always ensures that the thing we need the most, is the thing we are the most prejudice against. Pray for us because we are still weak, evil and vicious.
