In a way we’re faced with a similar dilemma to what Martin Luther encountered almost 500 years ago before the reformation of the church. He was troubled by the conflicting teachings, the false doctrine, the malpractice and the inability for the common man to read the Latin Bible.
Today we have a government that grows more corrupt and controlling by the minute and we have no voice in what’s happening with the laws. Our choices are difficult as well and we are no longer a nation of free thinkers.
Martin Luther lived in a time when the printing press was just coming into being and it allowed for the mass production of information about what was happening, along with the ability to print Bibles in the language of the people.
Today our cup runs over with tools for communication. Now we look to wiki leaks for our news. The media seems to be in the pockets of those running our country and our people have become apathetic.
What we can say and do about our concerns for what’s happening with our elected officials may soon be a thing of the past, but in the meantime we can still speak out against the evil that continues to infest the walls of Congress, The Senate and the White House. If we keep silent, we are like the people who were being led like sheep astray in Luther’s time.
I have this picture in my mind of our citizens being herded up and forced to eat the right food, turn in their guns and accept the fact that this new health care stuff is going to be the answer to all their problems.
Someone once said, to control a country, you must first take away their food and weapons. Then take their health care and you can do anything you want with them.
I pray it never comes to this. We need to be vigilant – not only against the foreign terrorists, but also the terrorists within our borders. I love my country and I’m proud of all the service men and women who daily put their lives on the line to defend it.
It’s time for a complete overhaul and I would love to have someone come up with an idea on how to do it. It might start with just one person, like a Martin Luther, who refused to tolerate the tyranny of Rome and the lies the people were being fed.
Once the seed is planted, the harvest will come and hopefully we can again be proud to be Americans. Luther had the printing press
To help him get the Word out. We have the Internet. What an amazing tool it can be I. The right hands.
It’s time for another Reformation!
