Letters to the Editor

A Christmas message

To the Editor:

This is the time to celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ.

God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son. Whosoever believe in him shall not perish but will have everlasting life.

Jesus said, “Trust in me, and you already have everlasting life.”

Isn’t it wonderful for we Christians to know that life on this Earth, which is but the blink of an eye, will be followed by the most glorious life in Heaven for eternity?

We Americans, whether Christian or not, have been blessed and guided by God above all other nations. George Washington, considered by many as the father of our nation, has said “a democratic government would not be possible without the Bible.” Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence about the inalienable God-given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Our Constitution, which was created by Christian volunteers from the 13 states, has used the Bible for many of its rules and principles.

By following the Constitution, in just 230 years, America has grown from one of the world’s smallest nations to the greatest and most powerful the world has ever known. Millions of Americans have fought and hundreds of thousands have died to keep America free.

In 1948, the Supreme Court erected a wall between religion and state. The changes in our culture have been devastating. Family values are waning. Fifty percent of marriages end in divorce.

Out of space. See part two next month.
