Psalm 33:10 “The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.”
President Adams, speaking to members of the military, stated the following:
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
We bemoan a government whose counsels are brought to nought, whose governance is ineffectual. Yet, such a condition should come as no surprise to a nation unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution is inadequate for such a context. Our vote, without adherence to Christian principle, would be similarly inadequate.
Christians, hopeful for change, must erase the mistaken perspective that there should be a separation between our values and our votes. Our Constitution was never designed with such a separation in mind, and will produce nothing of value if the current chasm continues. PLEASE PRAY THAT CHRISTIANS WOULD CLING TO VALUE-BASED VOTING. Through our votes and our prayers, we must bridle our nation and return to a fear of the Lord.
