Our Constitution is a practical application of a universal truth, confirmed by centuries of human experience. I would paraphrase it, but the book of Romans in The Bible says it so succinctly: “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” Or, as Isaiah, a prophet from long ago, put it, all of us have turned away from God and none is righteous. Those fundamental understandings do not elevate any of mankind; they recognize a tragic flaw infecting us all. For practical men and women, that flaw then leads to the question: How do we then govern? How do we live?
Read the entire thing, its critical to understanding where we are, how we got to this point, and where we are headed if we continue down this path as a Nation.
