POLITICS: Red versus Blue

Print Article

America’s division into Red and Blue states is tragic and will never be resolved unless there is a major change in moral values. The Red states are influenced by the biblical values of our Founders, and the Blue states are influenced by Atheist values that developed later.

All who wrote our founding documents or had a part in their drafting were what we call today evangelical or Bible-believing Christians. They believed “religion” (Christianity) is the basic foundation for liberty because of the morality that springs from it. (Consider the morality of other religions.) John Adam said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.” The Northwest Ordinance said, “Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools … shall forever be encouraged.”

Consider today. Some want unrestricted abortion and “death with dignity;” others want “life from conception.” Some want sexual self-determinism; the others want determinism at birth. Some want a legal Atheistic society by physical force; others want freedom of expression without hurting others. Some want to “Make America Great Again;” others harass and even physically attack MAGA supporters. Some support our Constitution; others want to change it. Some want to teach their philosophy starting as early as preschool; others want to control what is taught their children.

America must return to our founding principles or we will self-destruct. Jesus said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” America is no exception.
