I Samuel 17:29 “And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?”
Noah Webster wrote:
“The great benefit of a republican form of government is, that the people, being the source of all authority, elect their own rulers, who, after a limited time, for which they are elected, return to the condition of private citizens. In this case the rulers, and the ruled have a common interest. If the representatives of the people enact unjust or oppressive laws, the people have a remedy, in the power of electing different men for representatives at a subsequent election, who may repeal such laws. The evils of this form of government are, that ambitious and unprincipled men, in their strife for office, may and often do deceive and mislead the people, or corrupt them by offers of money and offices. In this case, the government often falls into the hands of wicked and profligate men.”
It is up to us to do something. There is a cause. As Webster reminded us of in 1834, the people have a remedy in our form of government. Our votes and our engagement in the political process is our remedy. May we stand up with strong voices and be heard. May our votes reflect our values and reflect our alignment with God’s values. WE THE PEOPLE are the source of all authority, and must never yield our authority nor our responsibility.
PLEASE PRAY FOR CHRISTIANS TO STAND STRONG AS A PART OF THE POLITICAL PROCESS. There is a cause and we are to be the remedy.
