Monday Meme: God Given Rights
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.—Declaration of Independence
Note who gives us that right. Not the government. Not those who have served. Not men or women. Our creator gives us that right. Our government can recognize God-given rights, but it does not give rights. If a man-made entity can give us our rights, that entity can then take our rights away. Therefore, those are not rights, but privileges. Big difference!
This is so important to instruct our children. Our education system is not teaching this. Our children are being taught that government gives us our rights. The government gave women the right to vote. The government gave us the right to kill our unborn children. The government gave us… If we are not careful, government will demand our loyalty and worship. Considering all government is made up of humans, there is a great potential for error, ie human error.
Parents can be oblivious to this. When I point it out in print to friends or co-workers, it makes them think. The light bulb goes on as if to recognize how blind we are, and how the media and schools brainwashed us. Even newscasters say that government or the supreme court has given… It is really scary.
As we celebrate our country’s birth, please appreciate and acknowledge WHO, not what, gives us our rights. Pray for our country. God bless America!
