Raise The Standard

Whose vision are we under in this nation?

When did we come to live in a nation where we kill babies and where we worship pornography, killing the essence of our self worth?

When did we start believing as a nation that there is nothing we can do as the death rate of suicide in our young people continues to rise?

When did we ruin the circle of life to the point where we seem to be heading toward euthanasia of our old people?

Where did the value of life go?

If we do not have this basic core of belief of the fundamental value of life in our nation, then it is no wonder all the other inalienable rights we thought we had are disappearing.  If the essence of life is not a value in our society, then certainly slavery of humanity to the will of a select group of individual must not be a problem!  Or is it?

Our societal and individual rights, as set forth under the constitution, were founded on basic moral principals.  At the time, there where voices within the land that raised up the standard and made it plain to see and follow. These foundational principals started with a basic premise that we have rights that cannot be taken from us as individuals. We call these inalienable rights.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government. (Declaration of Independence)

Sometimes our government enacts laws we do not even understand and it seem so far away from us.  It seems to have little bearing on how we live.  How is helping defeat laws that allow abortion or casinos or other such laws going to help the challenges you’re facing today?  Most of you would say it would not.  However, it’s the many parts of the puzzle that make up the finished product.

One bite at a time our right to live life under Godly, moral standards is being taken from us.  This is not new to this world.  Even a brief, look through “His-story” will show that one conquering ruler after another begins a battle plan, take-over plan, acquisition, one step at a time, one bite at a time.

Your voice matters. This day, I speak to you to rise up.
