TWO MASTERSMarcus Lacewell Matthew 6:24 KJV
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else hewill hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Since America’s formation, it has given its citizens the right to pursue happiness.
With this, citizens have the right to be in any; nonviolent and decent action leading to their happiness.
Also, America has always promised to always base its laws on God’s examples, while providing its citizens with the freedom of religion. With this, American citizens are free to worship any god and have any religious belief. This has been exercised, by many, to, publicly, support and refute many laws. The Bible and Jesus’ words have proven to have the greatest influence on America.
What do you do when your promises contradict? You will grow to love one and hate the other. But, America attempts to avoid this by letting the situation determine which promise is loved or hated. For example, America gives people the right form a romantic relationship with anyone that they choose. And, it allows states to include gay marriage .into law after the Bible says:Leviticus 20:13 KJV
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death ; their blood shall be upon them.
While, at the same time, America gives people the right to have any religious belief. Yet, it condones friction against Islam.
There are many examples. The judicial branch is still dealing with racism, legislative branch is full of contradictions and the executive branch constantly shows corruption. It has always seemed that money has the greatest influence on America and not the “In God We Trust” printed on it. It is not the actions that bother me, besides, who am I to judge another person. I have my own ‘short-comings.’ Every human has the right of choice. But, how can America ‘serve’ two masters, but expect to govern without contradictions? Unlearn.
