Is our Constitution Still Relevant?
I believe our Constitution has the capacity to be relevant, and indeed should be relevant. However, years of misconstruing vital aspects of the American Constitution, years of unctuous politicians smoothing over their scarcely Constitutional activities, precipitates dark days ahead. Ominous horizons gather, storms ready to loose a deluge of deadly wind and rain, the likes our nation has never before weathered. Our nation stands strong against outward enemies, but unwittingly welcomes the universe’s most deadly assassin into this blessed land.
Moral corruption is an acid, eating away at the foundations of America. It consumes strong men, preys on the wounded and weary, and jades civilization. It rips families up by the roots, turns thriving communities into tension filled Ghost Towns, and erodes our nation. This cursed assassin’s blade has taken the life of one of our most cherished Guardians, The Constitution.
The first blow was struck when men and women began to turn away from God, and their countries best interests. Our Constitution held on till The Second Great Awakening, when it appeared the worst was behind us. A remarkable recovery ensued, and The Constitution was as strong as ever. However, Corruption is a remarkably patient antagonist. Around 1925, during the Scopes-Monkey Trial, a deadly attack leveled our Constitution. Men dared to reject a Son’s life, and the Father’s wrath was poured out. The Constitution reeled when prayer was taken from schools, staggered when it became necessary to refer to gays as “homosexual” and to accept them as an alternate lifestyle, not a moral choice.
The Constitution went to its knees when abortion was legalized, and when public schools began to teach safe sex, hand out condoms, and drive students to get abortions, The Constitution was almost finished. In 2008, America elected yet another President that favored abortion. At the very instant Obama made history, Corruption landed the lethal blow. Our Constitution is now dead.
The Constitution is still a fond memory, but useless without the necessary attitude. Just because Americans have a Bible on their bookshelves doesn’t mean they live by its teachings. Our country is taking its final breaths. We have only one last hope: If my people, which are called by my name, will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. II Chronicles 7:14
