Think On This

President George Washington

After being elected President, Washington stressed these 
sentiments in his first inaugural address when he said:

No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the 
invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more
than the people of the United States.  Every step by which
they have advanced to the character of an independent
nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of
providential agency.

It was no superfluous formality when they required that all
witnesses who testify in the courts or before Congressional 
hearings must take an oath and swear or affirm before God 
that they will tell the truth.

Washington said in his Farewell Address:
"Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life,
if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are 
the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?"

"Ah, but we've drifted so far from the truth......haven't we?"

Praying for our nation.....Dee Dee
