Freedom Isn’t Free

“It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. . . . There are men, of all ages. . . .Who mean to govern well; but they mean to govern. They promise to be kind masters; but they mean to be masters. . . . They think there need be but little restraint upon themselves. . . . The love of power may sink too deep in their own hearts”–Daniel Webster.

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have need of masters”–Benjamin Franklin.

“It appears that too many Christians want to enjoy the thrill of feeling right but are not willing to endure the inconvenience of being right”–A.W. Tozer

“We in America do not have government by the majority–we have government by the majority who participate. . . .All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent”–Thomas Jefferson.

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived”–General George S. Patton, Jr.

Verse of the Day

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. — Romans 13:9-10 (NIV)
