What would the millions of American heroes who sacrificed their life in USA involved wars judge the Wisdom and Love, joy and sadness they see occurring in our USA contemporary times? Would they consider their personal sacrifice of life and/or limb was worth the price they and their loved ones experienced?
I read a Citizen Tom and Insanitybyes posts this Memorial Day morning which focused on the feelings concerns and opinions of people who believe that “spreading the gospel to restore the morals of Americans will not make America great again. “
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient wisdom verses to this conundrum which basically was observed 3000 years ago by King Solomon in the following selected Ecclesiastes verses.
And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. (Ecclesiastes 1:17)
If thou see the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regarded; and there be higher than they. (Ecclesiastes 5:8)
Say not thou, what is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this. (Ecclesiastes 7:10)
All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perished in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolonged his life in his wickedness. (Ecclesiastes 7:15)
All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificed, and to him that sacrificed not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that swarth, as he that feared an oath. (Ecclesiastes 9:2)
In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou know not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good. (Ecclesiastes 11:6)
Vanity, all is vanity Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity. (Ecclesiastes 12:8
What’s My Point?
Every concern and opinion of the bloggers was observed was addressed 3000 years ago in the Wisdom writings in the Bible. Wisdom verses which focus on Biblical prevention to inform interested
readers how to avoid making the same mistakes of past ge
nerations by motivation gained by teaching prevention wisdom.
Two thousand years ago, a far greater motivation of Love was taught by Jesus Christ to teach us the meaning and purpose of life on earth.
My point is looking back and wondering how dead heroes who sacrificed their lives for freedom is not wise if we understand that our contemporary times have changed in cultures, philosophies of life, to produce what we are now experiencing which if discerned has been a history of good and bad, joy and sadness realities instead of a utopian heaven envisioned by human imagination.
In My Opinion
The greatest folly of the USA is Government control of education which has been ruled illegal to teach biblical Wisdom and love teachings in public secular schools based on the Bible. Wisdom to help youth awareness avoid making the same mistakes to prevent the same follies of judgement experienced in previous generations.
What we are now experiencing in out contemporary times is the erosion of faith beliefs and teachings occurring in the USA by legislators who themselves have never been taught Biblical wisdom and love in depth in their youth, Even the sad experiences of religious clergy being driven by personal vanities to repeat the same experience King Solomon observed of himself before he wrote Ecclesiastes.
In my opinion, school choice and school vouchers are needed in the USA to teach us not to be surprised at the folly and low state of Spirit we now are experiencing. But to continue to wake up every morning, sow our seeds, and work hard for our future. We know if we do, there is a possiblily for a better future in the USA if only we will wise up and accept that sowing seeds requires work and effort to instill faith, wisdom and love in our communities.
And anyone who does not have faith to guide them in a world of madness and folly, opens themselves up to listening to hate driven feelings, emotions, and belief in philosophies that serves to propagate more madness and folly on earth. Follies which keep being repeated by humans up until they died become forgotten in time on earth.
Religious faith fortifies the trust and belief to fortify our Spirit that there will be a final judgment by our Creator and His purposes for meaning of life on the earth of his creations.
Read the blog posts and especially the opinion comments of the writers. Also, in the Source link below are Biblehub commentaries which give in depth commentaries and esplanations of the selected verses.
If after reading, would you agree the best hope for the future of the USA is to teach Biblical prevention Wisdom and Love to youth during the most impressionable and formative time in their lives to help prevent them from repeating the same mistakes of previous generations in history?
Regards and goodwill blogging.
