A new way to be human

"Some things are more important than a rock show" – Bruce Springsteen

Inalienable rights, consent of the governed, freedom of religion/conscience as well as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are all concepts that are dependent upon the moral law/life giver. One's freedom to conspire to transform this country into a nation where a few dominate and define the fate of the masses is only possible because we as a nation were founded on a true foundation. Take it away and everything is arbitrary and essentially meaningless.

Underneath the promise of utopian bliss lies the dark side of progress. A politically corrected, wholly conformed society must give way to relative morality and godless neutrality. How many will be left behind?

Progressive values are wholly incompatible with our righteous traditions; namely, our American Trinity: E Pluribus Unum, In God We Trust, Liberty. However, in times like these room is made for revival. Trials and adversities will only ensure a growing multitude will find their place at the throne of grace. By necessity, an ultimate distinction between a well-ordered Judeo-Christian foundation and a faith-based spiritual transformation is made.

No matter how firm the foundation, all lands built with human hands are made to fall. Only a City on a Hill can truly stand.

There's a true way to be human. It's a radical way that leads to the Celestial City. It's a way worth fighting for.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has gone, the new has come!" ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17
