Pastor gives take on liberty, licentiousness
To the editor:
Liberty and licentiousness used to be polar opposites and now a liberal America has put licentiousness under the definition and the law of liberty. Licentiousness is where we draw our word license from. People take license to do whatever they please- right or wrong, vice or virtue- under the cloak of liberty. America's liberties were constitutionally designed and protected to place upon this earth a nation that would draw all liberty from the law of God found in God's word. The quotes from the heart of America's founders could fill a newspaper for years on this subject. Allow me just one. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. ~President John Adams. Real liberty has limitations. Liberty is not the right to live anyway we want. It is the right to do right. Good citizens of our state and nation must stand up and cry out against the raging storm of licentiousness that is beating against our courts, state house and congress. Let us plead for liberty but never licentiousness.
