"Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also. And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers." Luke 11:45-46

Just as it was 2000 years ago, it is today. Lawyers, Lawmakers and Supreme Court Justice's make laws that are burdensome to the masses, but often they are exempt from them. I would not want to be the Supreme Court Justices on Judgment day and try to explain why they sided with the Child Molesters in California, Sodomites in Texas and the Abortion Docters in Floridia.

Our founding Fathers were servant leaders. This is what is refreshing about George W. Bush, he is a servant leader. Bill Clinton claimed to be a servant, but his actions indicated he loved the position more than the people of America.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace [Jer. 6:14]. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle [Matt. 20:6]? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! Patrick Henry

It is interesting to note that the founders of the United States of America freely used scripture in their normal conversations. It was a part of their lives and it is the foundation on which this country was built.

"As the Englishman Edward the Longshanks was oppressing Scotland in 1290 AD, the Great Hammer of the English, William Wallace stood up and yelled "Pro Liebertate"- "For Freedom"

Pray for freedom to worship in Iran and the rest of the Islamic Countries. May they take courage from former Freedom lovers who overcame all odds. Read about the Student Protests in Iran here.
