I found a few quotes from Samuel Adams, one of our Founding Fathers to be interesting when held to the prism of Modern controversy of the warp and woof of the society of the United States. Perhaps today’s article may shed light!
Mr. Adams is a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
1.The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. Samuel Adams
This statement should clear up what the founders meant by bearing Arms.
2. We have proclaimed to the world our determination 'to die freemen, rather than to live as slaves.' We have appealed to Heaven for the justice of our cause, and in Heaven we have placed our trust. Samuel Adams
Founder Adams knew that without God’s Hand, the cause would fail.
3. It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot live in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail. Samuel Adams
Prescient of dumbing down society to overthrow it?
4.The right to freedom is the gift of God Almighty...The rights of the Colonists as Christians may be best understood by reading, and carefully studying the institutes of the great Lawgiver and head of the Christian Church: which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament. Samuel Adams
Could he have known the overall hatred of God by Marxist Socialists?
5.We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the Sun, let His Kingdom come. Samuel Adams
Founder Adams, being of Puritan background, clearly understood God’s Control of His Creation.
6.Psalm 1:1, Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; (NKJV)
Psalms 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget God.” (NKJV)
May we this day, “Praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation!” LML
