“When Jesus was asked, “Teacher, which is The Great Commandment in the law?”. Jesus said to him,“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. The second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets”

Christian-Family Political Issues That All Christians Should Unite Under:
Should Christians be involved in politics? Absolutely! But in a manner consistent with Paul’s teachings in Philippians ( see “Unity through Humility” Philippians 2:1 ). Not to divide, but to act in a “Righteous Manner as Salt and Light in a United Body of Christ”. There are Christian political groups which represent large numbers of Churches, but get active in issues that “Divide Us as a Body” or “Reflect Excessive International Influence in National Politics” or “Fail To Respect Authority of Our Government to Create and Administer Laws”. Most of the surveys I’ve seen continue to indicate that Christians and their Churches get too involved in politics. The reason for this is that they get active in too many issues, or that their” World-View” doesn’t represent the true interests of our nation. This is why we need to limit the number of issues to keep us together as one body as we represent Biblical teachings and work to:
“Preserve Religious Freedom”.
Consider the following:
If our citizenry can’t properly conduct themselves and treat others the way we want to be treated, then how is anyone to be free. This was a concept fully agreed upon by our nation’s Founders regardless of their religious beliefs. This “Moral Code” as brought to America in the Christian Bibles of our earliest colonists, needs to be followed or society will require a police state to keep us safe from one another.
Protecting the lives of our children must be a priority for all of us. Many of our fellow citizens would rather save walruses, or birds but think nothing of mercilessly killing their children under the label, “It’s A Woman’s Choice”. The truth is, GOD almighty has given the job of Child-birth to women which is a fact none of us can change. It’s “A Precious Gift From GOD” and must be preserved. If prospective mothers and fathers can see the actual medical procedure utilized to “Mercilessly and Ruthlessly Murder Unborns”, they would never do it. “Freedom Allows Choices but Those Choices Need to be The Right Ones If America is To Remain Morally Strong and Free. Please consider learning the“The Truth About Abortion” and think of the millions of childless couples who would love to adopt a child. “Pass GOD’s Gift of Love” to another couple, many who would give anything for a child.
The Bible Approves of no other and neither does nature! “Only One Man and One Woman” were designed to come together to make a new life. This is why “Man and Woman have Complementary Anatomical Structures” that allow reproduction which is necessary to continue the human species. GOD intended Sexual Relations to be shared within the the loving and secure bonds of marriage so don’t be deceived by those teaching otherwise especially in our public schools.
“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”.
Inspirational words found in America’s Declaration of Independence defining the true intention of our nation’s Founding Documents, namely, “To Secure Our God-Given-Rights”. .There is no other way to secure these Rights other than by using our National and State Constitutions and the “Horizontal ( Branches of Government), and Vertical (Levels of Government); Distribution Of Power” that they create. Their provisions must be enforced if our people are ever to remain free.
“An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425, 426 (1886). That’s a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.
“In no charter or Constitution is there anything to even suggest that any other than the Christian is the religion of his country”……I could show you how largely our Laws and Customs are based upon “The Laws of Moses and the Teachings of Christ”; How constantly the bible is appealed to as the guide of life and the authority in questions of morals…….On every hilltop towers the steeple of some Christian Church….I could go on indefinitely, pointing out further illustrations both official and non-official, public and private; such as Thanksgiving proclamations, with their following days of worship and feasting; announcements of days and fasting and prayer; the universal celebration of Christmas; the gathering of millions of our children in Sunday Schools, and the countless volumes of Christian literature.
Justice David Brewer of the 1892 Supreme Court case.
Church of Holy Trinity V. United States
American Christians need to be brought together under a common platform…one that reflects our world-view and all of us can get behind. One that supports Morality, Religious Freedom and The Rule of Law”
“Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes
in every town the LORD your GOD is giving you, and they should
judge the people fairly. Do not pervert justice or show partiality.
Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise
and twists the words of the righteous. Follow justice and justice alone,
so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your GOD is giving you.”
“Inscribed above the entrance to the City hall in Cambridge, MA.
“GOD HAS GIVEN COMMANDMENTS UNTO MEN. FROM THESE
COMMANDMENTS, MEN HAVE FRAMED LAWS BY WHICH TO BE GOVERNED.
IT IS HONORABLE AND PRAISEWORTHY TO SERVE THE
PEOPLE BY ADMINISTERING THESE LAWS FAITHFULLY.
IF THE LAWS ARE NOT ENFORCED, THE PEOPLE ARE NOT WELL GOVERNED.”
“America Has a Christian Culture”
“GOD who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation
be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis,
a conviction in the minds of the people that these
“Liberties are of the “Gift of GOD”? That they are
not to be violated but with his wrath? “Indeed,
I tremble for my country when I reflect that GOD is just;
that his justice cannot sleep forever.”..
Thomas Jefferson…1781…Notes On The State of Virginia.
The question of our Nation’s Christian Heritage can most easily be answered by looking at the Constitutions, Founding, Educational and Religious institutions of the individual states. The Federal Constitution has limited references to GOD whereas the states much and some even started as “Christian Theocracies” where tax-payer funds were raised to pay “Christian Members of the Clergy”, a practice that continued even into the 1800′s.
From…The Massachusetts State Constitution Chapter VI Oaths & Subscription ..
[Any person chosen governor, lieutenant governor, councillor, senator or representative, and accepting the trust, shall before he proceed to execute the duties of his place or office, make and subscribe the following declaration, viz.--
"I, A. B., do declare, that I believe the Christian religion, and have a firm persuasion of its truth; and that I am seised and possessed, in my own right, of the property required by the constitution as one qualification for the office or place to which I am elected."
Some notable organizations set up to assist Christian young men. The First being,"The Young Men's Christian Organization, also known as the YMCA, founded by 22-year-old George William in 1844 as a refuge of"Bible Study and Prayer" for young men seeking escape from the hazards of life on the streets of London. Brought to the Old South Church in Boston on December 29, 1851, by an old retired sea captain by the name of Thomas Valentine Sullivan. The link to their website and it's history is here:
The next is the Boy’s and Girls Clubs of America. Founded in 1860 in Hartford, CT., it expanded into the“Federated Boys Clubs” in 1906 Boston, and was later renamed,“The Boys Clubs of America” in 1931. Has a “Boys & Girls Club Code, which says:
I believe in God and the right to worship according to my own faith and religion.
I believe in America and the American way of life…in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
I believe in fair play, honesty and sportsmanship.
I believe in my Boys & Girls Club, which stands for these things.

Sixteenth President of these United States
“The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities.”
