The Real State of Our Union (February 5, 2014)
Last week President Obama’s State of the Union address focused on particular issues like the economy, immigration, and health care.
However, any true analysis of the state of our union must be based on where we are compared to where we started.
And we started with a set of shared values and ideals, namely, a belief in the “laws of nature and Nature’s God.”
Today, however, it seems that a majority of Americans no longer really believe that God has imposed laws on his creation relative either to man’s behavior or to civil government. Thus the true state of our union is that we are losing that which was at the center of our being – the shared values that held us together.
Sadly, with their loss, disunion rather than union is increasingly becoming the true state of our nation.
