Why do we need liberty?
Why should we expect something that is a contradictory to 6000 years of recorded history.
When you look back through history, you see the rise and fall of one slave empire after another. Individual liberty has consistently been a short-lived aberration to the norm.
We get the government we deserve
Proverbs 28:2a For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof
Mankind has a fallen nature and is unable to rule himself.
Left to themselves, the general public sinks lower and lower into depravity and requires a stronger and stronger central authority to maintain order.
The result is a corrupt government, due to any government of men by men will become as corrupt as the men that run it.
It is not only that power corrupts, but also that power attracts corrupt men. The greater the power, the more corrupt those who covet it.
Our lack of moral character and lack of willingness to govern ourselves has resulted in the loss of freedom in exchange for ‘security’.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. – John Adams
We have been given a unique opportunity in that we can freely and openly practice and express our faith, and raise up the next generation to be stronger in faith than any previous.
Instead, we have squandered the opportunity. Each generation becomes more morally depraved than the one before it.
