Governance and God – Benjamin Franklin

My Pondering

Franklin wasn’t a perfect man but he sure was a wise one.

He as an inventor, publisher, writer, statesman, ambassador and so much more.

This world we live in, this country of America is becoming more and more governed without the blessing of God and His political Providence .

We can create all the laws we want, scream to the clouds, march back and forth across the whole land but without God’s blessing, it is futile.

Without God, massacres will occur more and more.

Without God, babies will be aborted daily by the thousands.

Without God, their will be violence in the street, steadily increasing.

In the early 1960’s, some in this country thought it would be better to remove prayer to God in the classroom. They thought it smart to teach evolution as a proven science. They wanted to erect a new wall to keep God out government and their secular lives. They declared the Bible taboo and irrelevant.

Look what has happened since:

Franklin wasn’t a devoutly religious man but he was a keen student and very observant. America, we should heed his advice. God will NOT be mocked. We should not take His patience, long suffering and grace for granted.

Hey ‘Merica, Europe and most of the world, our society is out of order like this elevator.

Let’s Pray

There is ONLY one solution to our ills:

and My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14
