Despite the lies that revisionists try and push, America was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles, and right now we need to pray for God to raise up those principles; for I fear for the generation of my grandchildren and beyond. – Mike

Call to Pray by Sam Adams – “Father of American Revolution”
“Bow the knee in prayer to the Almighty, whose assistance they hoped to obtain”
…Samuel Adams called for the first Continental Congress.
When it first met, September 6, 1774, he proposed that it be opened with prayer, despite the delegates being of different Christian denominations which did not always get along:
“It did not become men, professing to be Christian men, who had come together for solemn deliberation in the hour of their extremity, to say there was so wide a difference in their religious belief that they could not, as one man, bow the knee in prayer to the Almighty, whose advice and assistance they hoped to obtain.”
Today in America we celebration Labor Day. First celebrated in 1882 and continually since 1894, it is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.
After 8 years of near record high unemployment the nations laborers had much to celebrate in Jan 2020 when for the a full quarter unemployment hovered at 3.5% the lowest in decades. Then COVID-19 and everything changed overnight.
If you watch any political news on either side of the isle all they seem to want to do is play the “Blame Game“. While I believe it is important to point out the differences in POLICY between your positions and your opponents today that does not seem to matter only who has a better more likable personality.
So today 07 September 2020, as we celebrate the 126th Labor Day, let us put aside the Blame Game and concentrate on what really matters Laboring Together to Build A Better America. Is that not what the Founding Founder’s wanted.
(A Song of degrees for Solomon.)
Except the LORD build the house, – Whatever you are building a family, a house, a nation the LORD is the essential ingredient our founding fathers (despite the naysayers) understood this.
they labour in vain that build it: – there have been many “great men” in the world who have taken nothing with them to an eternity of self condemnation in hell.
We all have a choice, Individually and as a Nation, to Labor and Build upon the Constitutional Republic our Founding Fathers set forth, or let America dissolve.
Further we can choose to Righteously Labor with God or Not. We have all seen the chaos and depravity running amok on many of our cities streets. Is that the building up of America we want to leave for the future?

I have repeatedly and will continue to say that America is NOT a “Christian Nation.” If we were we would be a Theocracy, ruled by God, instaed the Founding Fathers decided on a new experiment in rule, so we are a Republic. However for those who would invoke the non-existent separation of church and state clause, we were founded upon, guided by and designed to follow Judaeo-Christian laws and principles.

Words matter. Definitions matter. Christians, of all people, should understand how much words and definitions, especially today, are being used to either affirm or deny reality, even shape our view of reality.
George Orwell, of course, understood the power of words. In fact, he so masterfully captured the notion in his novel “1984,”that today the intentional misuse of words is named after him: “Orwellian.” Think of abortion, for example: Is “abortion” an issue of “reproductive rights” or is it the “taking of an innocent life”?
Not every new use of words is intentional malpractice, of course. Words often change over time as our culture changes. Sometimes words will change because the culture has changed. Sometimes culture will change because words have changed.
Either way, imagine how much a word or a phrase can change over 250 years.
Here’s one: the word “happiness.” It’s part of the most memorable line in the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
