Our Government Is Not For A People Who Are Not Moral And Religious

We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion…..Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. – John Adams [this quote came for a pamphlet published by Wallbuilders, Inc. It says the quote came from a letter dated October 13, 1789]
Ever wonder what has gone wrong with our government? John Adams’ quote makes it quite clear. Our government was never intended to function when our citizens have turned their back on God. In fact, I can’t function properly. As a result, we get a government that is functioning as ours is now.
We have governments trying to tell businesses how to run their business, how much they have to pay entry level employees, how much profit they are allowed to make, etc. We have local, state, and federal governments telling people what they can do with their own property. We have judges making law against the wishes of the masses. We have people who are dependant on government handouts. We have people who think the government should protect us from ourselves. When we spill our coffee on ourselves we file lawsuits against the company that sold it to us. We file lawsuits against the manufacturer of the gun used by a criminal to commit a crime. In our schools, we are more worried about a childs self esteem than whether or not they are learning the basics…reading, writing, and arithmetic.
I could go on but I think you get the point. Our government is inadequate for the current state of our people. What can be done?
