The Truth is…

where does truth come from

“Correct” is the “C” in R.E.C.I.P.E.

“God who gave us life gave us liberty.  And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God?” 

– Thomas Jefferson

I am often amazed at the foresight of our founders.  This quote perfectly describes what has happened in our society.  For years, on a variety of fronts, Americans have been told lies.  In so many cases, the lies we have been told have served to remove God as the firm basis of our society.  Evolution lies when it says the world was not created by God.  Distorted and false interpretations of the term “Separation of church and state” have been used to convince people that “Godlessness”, or a separation from God, was a foundation upon which our nation was built.  Lies like these and others pull us away from our faith in God.  

Our Rights Come from God

The Declaration of Independence was the first document ever written by our Congress as an independent nation, and the second paragraph of that document tells us our rights come to us from God, and the purpose of government is to secure rights already given to us by God.  From the very beginning, we were a society with God, who recognized that He gave us our rights.  A Godless society is a society in bondage.   It seems clear then to me, that those who tell the lies and seek to remove God from our society, actually do not like the way America was designed and want to remove our freedom.  They want us in bondage so they seek to remove the influence of God on our society. 

We share truth

At Patriot’s Hope, we share truth and correct the lies. We share the truth from our founding fathers and the truth of our founding documents that tell the real story of the formation of our country.  We share truth from the Bible.  (“Thy Word is truth”, John 17:17)  We share the truth that our nation was built upon.  Thomas Jefferson said our nation’s liberties would not be secure if the conviction was removed that these liberties are the gift of God.  That conviction has been removed by lies told by many parts of our society.  The hope of the real patriot is for that conviction to be replaced, and for our liberty to be secure once again. 

“And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.” 

– Psalm 119:45

    In the argument, I showed you online, about God not being in the constitution, the other party wouldn’t acknowledge the Declaration of Independence as relating to the Constitution. Folks need to be taught (again CIVICS lessons) the relationship!

      Amen! We have to teach this stuff again so Americans will learn to value it again! Thank you for your comment!

    Have been learning so much of that truth through all the classes on the constitution from Patriot Academy, David Barton, Hillsdale College and Patriot’s Hope. It is so amazing what so many are trying to strip away from us!!!

    • Jason Southerland

      Yes it is! But I believe we can make things better by educating Americans once again in how our government was designed to work, so they can hold their government officials accountable to the oath they swore to support our Constitution. Thank you for your comment!
