#3- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

A government in accord with the statements made in the “Declaration of Independence and Patrick Henry’s words was to be a government of representation for the people, by the people not a government of money and power for those with money and power, at least that’s Rhapsodie’s interpretation from reading that document. But there was another factor; it was to be a government where God was used in interpreting the destiny of the country and its people. In fact the following sections of the “Declaration of Independence” support Rhapsodie’s suppositions:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. —That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, . . . Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient [not needs, just passing by, not remaining] causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them [the people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

This was the mind of people declaring independence from England. I so wish the people of the U.S. valued their history and the freedom’s they should still have enough to keep our government from changing laws, ordinances, and policies for “light and transient causes.” The alteration of regulation in regards to the proper political feeling is not necessarily good. People interpret the “Declaration of Independence‘s” words differently, and that’s okay as long as they take the time to also question your & their individual interpretations.

So let me ask you this.

#2- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

Freedom requires work to maintain, work to uphold, and work to stay free while others want to suffer being made slaves for the minimal amount of value slavery gives. Wait, is Rhapsodie saying that there was value in slavery? NO THERE IS ONLY A MINIMIZATION OF RESPONSIBILITY and less control over the privileges freedom with responsibility allows. For every privilege there is responsibility.

Patrick Henry, on March 23, 1775 shared the words now recorded as “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death states that the reason he believes in the fight for freedom:

We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House.

His compilation of historical facts based on life in America before the revolutionary war helped incite many more people to battle for as Mr. Henry stated, “There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election.”

There are too many historical interpretations to believe them all. There are too many scientific theories translated as fact to believe them all also. Some scientific theories have been tested enough to determine that they are in fact more fact than theory, for instance chemical constructions of materials like oxygen and helium. But there are other theories like carbon dating, which are not shown to be fact, there are occasions when the supposed carbon dating was actually proven to be false. So, the words of Joseph to Pharaoh in accord with interpreting Pharaoh’s dreams are prosaic for us, “Do not ALL INTERPRETATIONS, belong to God?” (The Bible, Genesis)

History provides examples for life experience examining the past usually proves the value of LOVE knowing interpretations. The “Constitution of the United States was redefined in accord with experience, the “Declaration of Independence was written because of experience and need of the people, as far as they saw.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote [get behind, boost, not make] the general welfare, and secure [fortify, preserve, assure, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)]] the blessings of liberty [the rights supposedly natural to man- freedom; independence; power of choice, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)] to ourselves and our posterity [our children’s future, our descendant’s future, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)], do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Did the people of Europe come because there is a Godly curse that was fulfilled and caused an altering of Native American People’s drive? Did Europe come because the land offered freedom from control of the governments in Europe? Did America become the country it is today, 7-25-2015 because the people forgot their history, forgot to value the freedom, and have dismissed the “Constitution of the US” based on the Iroquois and 5 Nations treaty as unreasonable for the people of the modern era?

Most likely so.

The U.S. citizens of the world are in fact not waking up; they are falling back into lazy habits. Man can look, interpret, and determine but are the assumptions made accurate? The site of one man on the right corner of a car accident is different than the person right next to them, or the person on the left corner. Each person’s interpretations are based on their own view. History is evidence of how interpretations alter understanding. God can define the meaning for all in history, but God can also allow men to interpret and define if so determined.

What am I saying?

The ‘Heaven is for Real’ movie and I- #1 of 7

The ‘Heaven is for Real’ movie and I are acquainted.

How so?

Hornell Walmart- summer 2008

Well I worked as a door greeter at Walmart in Hornell, NY from 2008 to 2010. While at the door my work was inspired by the desire to share with people love. Love for the unknown and under-appreciated. Love for the people who battle for righteousness and universal freedom.   This love caused me to try to make people feel appreciated, cared for, and it caused me to talk about people I’ve come to love the most.

What is interesting is that conversations would sometimes take twists and turns because I didn’t ever try to make people believe what I said. I just tried to encourage them to think. This involved listening, commenting on what was said, and inserting thoughts and ideas that could encourage their minds and hearts to change.

During one conversation I mentioned my belief in heaven and the people that live there.  Those people being different from the majority of the world but very similar to us in many respects.

He queried with, “What do you mean?”

I responded with, “Well for many of us we see God and angels as glo-globs of energy with no definition other than commanding power, law & authority and very little personality.”

The man had been nodding his head during my words and in my guesstimation, his nodding was because of relating to what was said.  Sort of like I was speaking truth and he concurred with my conjecture.

His expressions inspired my following response, with similar words, “My view of God is based on a slight understanding of the Bible and some of the creation account in Genesis.”  Because of a fear of offending the man, a customer, with one of the two forbidden public conversations, politics and religion I personalized my comment. These were my words, “In the description of creation, Genesis chapter 1 or 3, but I think its chapter 3 we’re told, “‘…and they [humans] were created in their image.’ According to my interpretation, that means we are like God, God is like us.” Observing the skeptical questioning on his face I continued, “The scriptures describe God as our ‘father in the heavens’ . . . they mention that ‘his eyes are upon us’.  What does that sound like to you?”

He responded, “I think I remember reading those words, but I never thought of God as a person before.”

In encouragement I said to him, “Examine Genesis for yourself, because that’s what the Bible mentions.  Think about what we discussed and consider all the other times God is described as a physical being.”

He waved as he walked away with the kind of carriage that caused me to think he was accepting and curious.

Well time continued to pass. And once in a while in-depth conversations like the one, described, here continued to happen.

Presently having seen and heard ads for the new movie ‘Heaven is for Real,’ causes me to recollect even more . . .
