Founders’ work doesn’t surpass the laws of God

Published: Thursday, July 10, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

In response to Jordan Bowman’s July 2 letter, “Equality for all is his agenda,” I would like to commend Jordan for his desire to treat all people with dignity. The architects of the “great American experiment” were wise men placed at that day and time by God to prepare this new country and its population for the future.

This country provides many freedoms that others are willing to risk their lives for so they can enjoy them. God was not left out of the picture when our forefathers wrote the Constitution, as you can see from the wonderful picture titled “The First Prayer in Congress,” September 1774, Carpenters Hall, Philadelphia.

All of their efforts were good and honorable, but what they did does not surpass their creator. You stated that God’s law changes with different religions. Did God invent the different religions, or did man? God looks at the heart, not at which religion you follow.

You said different interpretations of the Bible translations change God’s law. May I refer you to Psalm 19:7, “The Law [revealed will] of the Lord is perfect.” Deuteronomy 4:2 says, “You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it.” And finally Hebrews 6:18, “It is impossible for God to lie.”

God is not saying, “Let’s make a deal.” He’s saying, “This is the deal.” He gave all of us a choice – either to follow him or to follow your own desires.
