Revise the Constitution?

Updated: Jul 6, 2022

My grandson plays games with his grandfather; and, that rascal, if he is losing, feels free to change the rules; so, the new version promotes a score that’s favorable to him! Similarly, when one political party is losing (speaking of children!), they attempt to change the rules— rewrite the Constitution to a version that is favorable to their cause. Outrageous as it is, they cite these reasons:


1. That document is out of date, it’s archaic. Below is an article from the Atlantic, stating the case for a new version to the old Constitution:


“America, we've got some bad news: Our Constitution isn't going to make it. It's had 224 years of commendable, often glorious service, but there's a time for everything, and the government shutdown and permanent-crisis governance signal that it's time to think about moving on.”

— By Alex Seitz-Wald and National Journal (cited in the Atlantic, Nov 2013).


2. That document was written by men (all men, no women); therefore, it is not a credible authority.


3. Some of the language is …out of date, we should have a document that’s easy to read.


We the citizens, who have enjoyed the wisdom, liberty, and protection afforded by the old Constitution, find these arguments against its credibility ridiculous, unfounded, and foolish (and perhaps unpatriotic). Rascals! Imagine the anarchy, and chaotic mess at best, if we were to have multiple governing documents and authorities, and each person choosing the one that best suits him! (Judges 21:25).


It’s easy to hear a parallel argument about multiple bible versions, with each person choosing the one that suits him, on that particular day. I hear, “The old Bible, it served its use, but times are a changin.” And, they say, “That old document was written by men! – all men, only men! – we need a more inclusive authorship which incorporates a diversity…”


While their argument may seem sound to some, and it may initially appeal to those who seek to be open minded and fair (which isn’t a bad motive), they don’t consider the fruit of usurping a sole, time tested authority. As with multiple constitutions, and changing the rules mid-game, the 300+ English bible versions lead only to confusion, frustration, and spiritual anarchy. They never lead to equity (since we can’t agree on what’s right and fair) and it drifts and dulls away from the original intent. Nay, despite the tide of progressive activism, it’s far better, whether Constitutional or Biblical veracity, to do a little work, and gain understanding, and stay with the tried and true. Understanding is better than easy.


When the world speaks a new dominant language, and English no longer is the undoing of Babel, perhaps God will at that time, inspire a new version in the new dominant world language (perhaps). But for now, English reigns, and therefore the greatest English text, the tried and true, remains relevant and authoritative. Stay the course.

Money whispers kill had a person have little or a lot. How are Christ's teachings evil?

Give each other a Holy kiss. Satan goes ballistic upon seeing that. My Likness is not seen. God's law is seen as not being to hard to keep. I cannot stand it says Satan in the nun. Sing song: if blood and gore was in the scene, the scene to nun, would not be obscene.

God's mind in our mind giving others what is requested in person and from spesific places will greatly reduce the number of abortions. People will not be afraid of having sex. People will not be afraid of being seen having sex. God's law will be used rather than the law that exists. The law that exists will be no more.

Things should not cost anything. God did not put a price on anything. God's mind needs to be in our mind. They that have God in their mind will not try to gain all that is unto themselves. They that do that will perish with what is, valuing what is more than what is to come.

Don't abandon Trump. Trump is right. Bannon is right. Left people are obvious liars saying no fraud and then say fraud occurred. They say little occurred. How can people believe them? A lot of fraud occurred just like Trump said. Left said none, and then said some. See obvious liars.
