Fiscal Issues Are All Based On Biblical Morals

As we sit here today and our leaders leaders on both sides of the isle twist and turn to find out how to save our nation from the economic catastrophe, it brings out an interesting point. Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and beliefs and over our short history we have been blessed as one of the world’s leading economic power houses. We have also become the military leaders of the world, and as a people, we enjoy more freedom and liberty than any other nation in the world. Why do you suppose we have achieved this?

We achieved this because our founding fathers were men of faith and conviction and they had the wisdom to make those simple biblical values and principles the foundation of this nation. Over the last 50 years or so, many have fought to remove Christianity from the people and the government, and as a result we have fallen as a nation.

Today, even in the Republican Party, we have to fight and defend the belief that we should continue to stand for fiscal and social issues.  Many within the Republican Party think that we should drop all social issues and just worry about fiscal policy. This is wrong, and if we do drop the social issues, we are finished. Can anyone name ONE race we have lost for being too conservative? Nope. It’s never happened.

I agree with the Tea Party movement, but many within the Tea Party are not interested in defending our social or moral issues -  Only fiscal issues. Truth be told, our fiscal problems are not only a financial problem – they are also a moral problem. We are in this mess because we have strayed from those simple biblical and moral truths. In Romans 13:8 Paul says “Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.” If our elected officials would stick to those simple biblical truths this nation was founded upon we would not be in this mess.

So to those who want to drop all biblical morality, I ask you to rethink your position.

  • Okay, where do I start?
    “Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and beliefs…”
    No, flat-out wrong. Our nation was meant to be a secular nation, and it was NOT based on Judeo-Christian beliefs or principles. To take an excerpt from
    http://www.earlyamerica.com/review/summer97/secular.html
    “The Constitution reflects our founder’s views of a secular government, protecting the freedom of any belief or unbelief.” Why do you think we have freedom of religion? Why do you think people who are not Judeo-Christian or have different beliefs get offended that god is on the money or on the pledge? It’s a matter of simple church-state separation. Religion should stay away from politics.
    “We achieved this because our founding fathers were men of faith and conviction and they had the wisdom to make those simple biblical values and principles the foundation of this nation.”
    Also no. Most were Deists, or people who believed in a higher power but were not necessarily part of a church. For another example, you’ll have to bear with me. You would agree that “simple biblical values” include the Ten Commandments, no? Then why is the First Amendment this:
    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
    Why does the First Amendment directly contradict one the ten commandments: “Thou shall not have any other god before me?”
    And why isn’t it illegal to cheat on your wife, or to not practice the Sabbath? I’ll make these rhetorical.
    “We are in this mess because we have strayed from those simple biblical and moral truths.”
    I’ll just leave this here. “When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)”
    Sincerely,

    • Karl i have always been told “Ignorance is bliss” Is that true?

      Karl its well know what foundation this great nation was founded upon and i am sorry if that scares you but that dies not make it untrue.

      If you can handle a little truth do a little research for yourself…http://www.wallbuilders.com/

      We in fact were founded upon Judo-Christian beliefs and principles and many that are fearful of the light that the truth brings always run and hide while trying to re-write our own past..Keep up it up and continue to fail…The truth will always win..http://billkneer.com/2011/07/upon-what-foundation-do-you-wish-to-build-the-future-of-the-u-s-a-2/

      • You didn’t refute of my claims, and if you did, it was a very bad job.

        We were meant to be a SECULAR nation. We should be accepting of all cultures, and we should keep away god from the government. It’s your way of thinking that leads to racism and intolerance of such high levels in this country.

        • Karl, do you mean that when we say in GOD we trust that is a secular act?

          I will not waste too much time refuting what we all know and you also know is a lie.

          Our founding Fathers gave a freedom OF religion not freedom FROM religion.

          Karl “It’s your way of thinking that leads to racism and intolerance of such high levels in this country.” That shows all of us either you ignorance of Christianity or your fear of it….There is no room for hate there have been some evil people in the past that have used religion to do some bad things but this is not what Christ taught nor is hate of anyone taught in the bible.

          Karl, i fear your hart is not in a good place and i certainly hope that one day you will open up and see life honestly. you do not have to live in fear of those who who love and fear GOD…

          Have a great day..

  • Oh I messed up on the end.

    Sincerely,

    Karl.

  • It is true, that love each other will help, but not alone.
    The reason is simple. Through the multicultural mixed values does people get twisted and confusing mindset from totally different and opposite ideology’s, pagans religions, mythology’s, and cults etc that are fare from the the first,last and only GOD(Jesus). They pic and choose as they like. This is the number of the beast, because devil like confusing and an unstable world be leaving in all other than the true GOD(Jesus)

    Jesus did not tolerate everything:
    What did GUD(Jesus)do in John 2:13 – 25. Jesus(GOD) flushed out alle the Jews from the temple when they tryed to make it a markedplace.
    What did GOD(Jesus) say in Romans 16:17;
    “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them.”
    [So GOD(Jesus) did not want us to mix with people with other values,ideology's, mythology's and cult etc. Jesus wanted us to stay alert,awake against other values,cultures and pagan religion and belaeve system's who do worshipp other than GOD(Jesus) and stay away from the[separate us from them] som we dont mix.
    In 1. Corinthians 10:20 – 21: GOD(Jesus) says through Paulus says:
    “But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have communion with demons.
    1Co 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of demons: ye cannot partake of the table of the Lord, and of the table of demons.

    So this tells us the clear message that even though GOD(Jesus) loves all human beings, he alert us not to mix with other ideology’s, pagans religions, mythology’s, and cults etc than will bring us away from GOD(Jesus) and devious ways that guide to devil instead of the only single way to GOD through Jesus.

    So, as you clearly see, loving other humans unconditional as tolerating everything in a multicultural society brings up-rowing generations to the world of insecurity,instability, fear and war.

    Remember:
    John 14:6:
    “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

    After years of unconditional multicultural society our leader and people have been water down our thru Judea and Christian religion to the point where all the alerts and warnings about the devil, the antichrist and false prophets have been removed and only the superficial word of loving together with a man made word, “tolerate”. remains. God(Jesus) never used the word “tolerate”, so again we se that our Judea and Christian religion has been totally lobotomized.

    Therefor loving and tolerating other people makes no sence when the rest of the medal downside is removed.

    There would be no requirement to listen to GOD(Jesus) if there was only him in the world, but there are also the devil, so people seems to have forgotten that the devil is a very great part of our lifes,unfortunately.

    So the are just talking about loving and tolerating all the time. This is totally wrong and is the main reasoning the world lead to destruction before GOD(Jesus) are intervening as stated in Bible.

    • SO you are saying we should kick everyone who isn’t a christian out? That’s a disgusting notion.

      • Karl, you twist and turn to make what people say to make it fit you hateful views. As Christians we are all taught to love the person not the sin. When Jesus got angry in the temple and though out the money changers he did not do this out of hate. He still loved them but there actions he did not love…

        If someone commits sinful acts we need to hate the act and do what we can to help them correct there actions and to bring them into the light. But in the end each of us can only control our own actions…

        We are a free nation and people are free to do bad or good. Some bad things are bad in the bible and in our nations laws like murder and, rape, theft…ect…when those are done the state steps in and hands out punishment..

        Others things are bad in the eyes of the church and the state does not and should not do anything to punish them because we are free to do bad or good…Some examples for you…Lying to someone..sex outside of marriage, homosexuality…These are things that are wrong but they are not illegal.

        We have the freedom to be bad or good. So please do not twist words to make a false argument honesty is always the best policy..

        As Christians we do not want to through people out for sinning..We want to help them though out the sin they do…

        If you ever really cared to learn the truth about our nation you would read and study our founding and you would see the truth..We are and always have been a Christian nation..I suspect you know that though but are not wiling to admit it..

      • No, our Western society’s is built on Judea and Christians values who are the only Sustainability and safe society. All other ideology’s and regions other than islam has no vision of world dominion by force,war, hate,lies etc.
        And muslims values are totally reversed and opposite from our western cultur, so the only way is to fordi islam only.
        They are the reason for 99% of the wars in the world:
        In more than 1400 years, muslims have killed much much more than 270 million people:
        https://sites.google.com/site/fiavnorge/nyheter/22
        http://www.news42day.com/2010/02/islam-270-million-bodies-in-1400-years/
        http://www.masada2000.org/islam.html

        Every three minutes a Christian is being tortured in the Muslim world, and in 2009 more than 165,000 Christians will have been killed because of their faith, most of them in Muslim countries.

        So the only way is to forbid islam, Quran and devil has very little play ground through muslims.

  • You are absolutely correct Bill. In fact if we look carefully at the Bible, it provides ways to help the state budget too. Have you ever notice that in the first five books of the Bible, which contain the law, that no-where does God command imprisonment. People who stole had to pay it back, plus a fine. If you hurt someone, you had to take care of him and his family. Murder was death penalty. I would like to see us go back to this, with one addition, drug users automatic counselling. We would save a lot of money. I would also go death penalty for anyone accused of selling drugs to kids.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.
