Constitution Day - 2009

Today is Constitution Day in remembrance of the September 17th 1787 signing of the US Constitution. It is a sad state of affairs in our country when many if not most Americans have no idea what our Constitution is and what was intended by it.

When historical revisionists ignore its biblical moorings and move to have it interpreted by an humanistic epistemology rather than the Christian worldview that its signers lived under it begins to take on a meaning not originally intended. We need to take the time to read the Constitution as well as the writings of this countries founders so as to be able to hold our elected officials and appointed judges accountable for their blatant disregard for its original meaning. The Constitution is not a living document but has a meaning that was originally intended and one that was meant to continue on.

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”
Patrick Henry
