If you support our national security issues, you may love and appreciate the United States of America, our Constitution with its’ freedoms, and our American flag.
If you support and practice our fiscal issues, you may value worldly possessions.
If you support and value our social issues, you may love Judeo-Christian values.
If you support and practice all these values, that is all good; an insignia of “Wisdom” . - Oscar Y. Harward

Christianity and Our US Constitution
(The following letter, without her last name, is a ‘copy in response’ to an e-mail I received questioning whether the Bible or the US Constitution is superior to the other. Cindy also sends me an acronym (HEAL) Heavens Energy Activates Life).
Thank you for taking your point in time to respond to some of my writings.
Yes, I am a believing, practicing Christian. When each chooses to give his/her heart and their personal mere existence to Jesus Christ, your entire energy will command a change of direction with so much comfort within your own being.
Our Holy Bible is our Book of Guidance, Instructions, and/or Commandments, to learn from others for ourselves, and to teach others; especially our children, grandchildren, and others of future generations, and with all this arranged information as inspired by our Chief Sheppard, Jesus Christ.
A specific obstruction in life is that since the 1963 US Supreme Court decision which took our Holy Bible out of our public schools, we have raised a generation, who has raised another generation, who is now raising another generation without the basic ingredients from within our Holy Bible being taught in public schools. Newer generations failing to teach the Holy Bible at home, and/or whom are failing to frequently attend their Church/Synagogue since this SCOTUS decision, has denied so many younger Americans from the ingredients; Guidance, Instructions, Commandments, and Blessings as promised. With these failures, many of us, as Americans, continue to fall short in educating the moral values to our own and around the world, as taught from our Holy Bible.
How can anyone gaze at our world as we may see it, looking at all living existence from the smallest insects, different animals, and unknown varieties of birds, or to anything of life as different varieties of grass, unknown numbers of dissimilar flowers, and/or assorted varieties and sizes of trees? How can we, otherwise, explain real human life, as we see, hear, smell, taste, and feel; except only by a special Creation from our God in Heaven above?
How can we, otherwise, explain our earth, so captivating as it stays out there with other planets and stars in open space, our universe; without anything attached and/or tying it down in place? Our moon is circling the earth monthly, and the ocean responds with the timely tides twice daily. Our earth is circling the sun one time annually, and then there comes our four seasons. The sun provides light, heat, life, etc. for us and all other life. How could all these miracles have ever evolved, or by whom other than the Miracle Maker, Himself, our God in Heaven?
Yes, I do believe our Bible is, and/or should be our Book of Guidance, Instruction and/or our Commandments for ourselves as well as to all others. With our Chief Sheppard’s Guidance, we must blend our Holy Bible, all working together, with our US Constitution. Our Holy Bible should truthfully and precisely direct our elective and appointed leaders, and secondly, each should follow by our US Constitution, as our forefathers did. There should be no contradiction between our Holy Bible and our US Constitution; however, some of our more non-believing legislators and radical left-wing Judges have become embittered and gone astray from our forefathers faith in God.
It appears you may have been misinformed on our “wise” forefathers; their belief on Christianity, and the US Constitution. There is so much information as to how resiliently our forefathers trusted in God, and wrote down so much about Christianity in general, not about specific denominations, concerning this issue. Our forefathers believed and wrote about a “Separation of Church and State”. These “wise” men wanted to make sure no specific Church became the American Church as the Church of England had earlier become the nation’s official Church. Many other Americans are twisting the true issues and pressing for Legislatures and Judiciary for much of written and/or ordered legislation “Separation of Church from State”. This falls unexpectedly of what our forefathers anticipated.
If you choose, you may examine “Freedom of Religion” authors whom came from a variety of different Christian Denominations. None ever intended a “Separation of Church from State”. Many of our forefathers’ writings are recorded in “The Federalist Papers”. http://www.foundingfathers.info/federalistpapers/. This assignment may take an extended period of study at your leisure.
Another story I recently e-mailed out regarding our Chief Sheppard, our Miracle Maker, and our God was:
Where God Ain’t
There was a little boy,
On the week's first day,
Coming home from Sunday School
And wandering on the way.
He scuffed his shoes into the grass
And found a caterpillar.
He found a fluffy milkweed pod
And blew out all the filler.
A bird's nest in a tree above,
So wisely placed on high,
Was just another wonder
That caught his eager eye.
A neighbor watched his crooked course
And hailed him from the lawn.
He asked him where he'd been that day
And what was going on.
"I've been to Sunday School," he said
As he turned a piece of sod,
And picking up a worm, he smiled,
"I've learned a lot from God!"
"That's a fine way," the neighbor said,
"For a boy to spend his time.
"Now if you can tell me where God is,
I'll give you a brand new dime."
Quick as a flash the answer came,
The boy said without complaint,
"I'll give you a dollar, Mister,
If you can tell me where God ain't!"
Again, thank you for taking your time. After study, I trust you will find a correlation between Judeo-Christian values and our US Constitution.
Sincerely, and God Bless!
