". . .The problem is within our society. I made the point several times during the campaign that we couldn’t 'fix' what’s wrong with us by electing Mitt Romney, but only GIVE OURSELVES TIME FOR INTROSPECTION and planning. We can’t elect our way out of the problem we’re in."
"Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is RELIGION *AND* MORALITY ALONE, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, They may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies." --John Adams, June 21st, 1776.
Re: "religion *AND* morality": JAMES 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. Re: "religion *AND* morality": JAMES 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Re: "religion *AND* morality": DEUTERONOMY 14:6 And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, **/and/** cheweth the cud among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
As excerpted in the article above, an American win (a.k.a., a Romney win) would probably only have given us a couple of more years "for introspection and planning". (Assuming, of course, that we would have actually used the time for such [personal / congregational] introspection.) Save some time for God -- He deserves better than what we give Him.
