Here is a letter recently published by the Press Democrat. Since tomorrow is Election Day, it is timely to think about these things.
Please join me in praying for God’s mercy upon our nation, and for a new crop of godly leaders. If we must reach critical mass, it would be good to have such leaders at the helm.
In physics, critical mass is the tipping point at which nuclear stuff blows up.
Today we are swiftly approaching spiritual and political critical mass. Activist judges, overthrowing the lawfully determined will of the people, think they can keep adding fissile material to the cultural pot. They cannot. Sooner or later it will blow up in their faces.
Here is Jefferson on critical mass: “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends (life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, all according to the laws of Nature and Nature’s God), it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.”
One day soon some brave governor, flanked by his legislature, will declare to the nation: “There is a time for saying, ‘We must obey God rather than man’; for following our conscience, our nation’s founding principles, our state constitutions, and the declared will of the people. That time has come. We will not submit to this Court. We will no longer kill our unborn children, nor sanction homosexual marriage. We do this, not out of hate, but love: Love for what is true, right, and best for America. Here we stand. God help us all.”
