What rudder steered the founders of USA to Democracy, and is the rudder still ‘good’ or in desperate need of repair based on what we read and hear in the news?

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom saying to answer this conundrum,

King Solomon

In their heart’s humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. (Proverb 16:9)

Ancient Unknown

Men sail their vessels but God is their rudder.

What’s My Point?

Our American Democracy is not the first ship to sail in history of mankind. Others have tried Democracy and failed over time.

In My Opinion

I read two twitter messages written by Cardinal Cupich on the issues of Democracy and a rudder.

One message addressed crime in Chicago.

The other was his statement made was 40 percent of millennials have no knowledge or belief in God.

This leads to the problem of affordability for parents to send their children to private religious schools to learn in depth religious values, in my opinion.

It brought to my mind ancient beliefs about the other recorded in history that men, including King Solomon, who believed essential that they are capable of buildings and sailing their own ships to live out their plans in life only to have failed when they lost or were never introduced to understand or believe in the above proverb and saying.

Cardinal Cupich messages reminded me of another minister message which contained this following statement:

“Surrounded by the sophistication of modern living, we look heavenward for that unfailing sense of direction, that we might chart and follow a wise and proper course. He whom we call our Heavenly Father will not leave our sincere petition unanswered.”

In my opinion, the USA planned and built a vessel and sadly Democracy in our contemporary times is making the same mistakes of vanity and voting for “stiffed necked leaders” who have decided they know more than their maker.

The conundrum now being is to discern if the course planned and their vessels going to result in a repeat in history of another attempt to sail a ship in a storm without out a rudder.

You Decide the Conundrum

Is the USA Democracy now sailing in a storm of crime and violence that is related to sailing in a storm?

Will the same fate of the ship mentioned in the article result in time to the USA Democracy?
