The Love of a Father

A long time ago, in a land far, far away, a Father lovingly gazed upon his only children.  These children were unique in that they were innocent.  They were pure.  They were sinless, guiltless, guileless.  They didn't know the difference between right and wrong.  They loved Him and His creation with a full heart that knew no deception.

This Father, basking in the perfection of the land and children He had created could have chosen to preserve their innocence at all costs.  He could have chosen not to allow these perfect children to taste the fruit of disobedience.  They could have lived their days in blissful ignorance, walking with Him in the cool of the evening and partaking of His great providence.

Instead, this Father gave His children the greatest gift.  He gave them the freedom of choice.  In His wisdom, He knew that their love was hollow when they had no choice but to give it.  Rather than seeking to protect His children from themselves, He allowed them to choose for themselves and then live with the consequences of their choices.  He loved His children enough to give them their freedom.

Our nation is at a crossroads.  Our government is desperately trying to relieve us of the responsibility to choose for ourselves.  In an effort to keep us "safe" they are stripping us of our right to choose - a right given to us by our Father at the foundations of the earth.

Our Father chose to allow us freedom, even though the cost would be deadly and eternal.  He knew that by giving us freedom to choose, we would lose our innocence, lose our perfection and even lose our lives.  But, He chose go give us our freedom anyway.  Because He loves us that much.

I know how much our Father loves us.  Now I ask, how much does our government love us?


  1. UM, they HATE us and disdain us...To them, we are stupid and don't know how to take care of ourselves...I choose the FATHER over them any day....
    Have a Blessed New Year....

  2. Because of the Love of the Father, we can choose to be a bond servant,
    and not a slave.
    Excellent blog post.

  3. Enola,


    There are two primary factions at work in this county right now.

    First, The ones that are truly concerned about public safety and believe a "nanny state" is the answer and will bring about social and cultural harmony.

    Second, The ones that wish to disarm, defang and destroy our society in order to pillage, steal and strip us of our wealth, and lead us into a culture of Bondage and Slavery.

    Niether of those choices are ones a real father would choose. A real father steers their children in the right direction and lets go' at a certain point.

    Our Founding Fathers did that. They gave us Liberty, now we are acting like a society of spoiled children.

  4. Great blog post Enola Gay.
    Our government has never loved us, all
    they want is to control us.

    Have a Happy New Year My Friend,

  5. Everything happening now - worldwide and as here in the USA - is under full control of a mighty God who is sweeping away man's failed, corrupt governments. It's all in the Holy Bible! It's all there. Nothing "man" can do will stop God's hand in all that is going on.

    A mighty God always is faithful to complete what He has started! All this serves to call people to Him. To KNOW HIM, to call upon His Name for salvation - spending eternity with Him instead of an eternity of weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    We will be in a great time of tribulation for a while. America will easily become another third nation as the evil doers lead us into a very oppressive Socialist, satanic form of government that has already proven to have failed time and time again - Russia, Germany, etc. We remember our "leaders" were put there by God Himself as satan is allowed his time of destruction.

    Yet, God is shaking the things that must be shaken and winnowing out the wheat from the chaff - those who stand firm to the end are His, refined in the fiery crucible into righteousness - His faithful believer's.

    Those who choose to reject Him - it's their choice and their eternal destiny of weeping and gnashing of teeth - a Righteous God always gives man his decisions.

    But we who are His and called by His Name are to look to Him, stand firm, be strong and courageous and never...NEVER...give up our faith, love, and salvation we have in Him. Many people around the world today in oppressive countries are imprisoned and being martyred for standing firm in their faith.

    Can we be as strong here in the pampered USA where we have been given so much and much is required. Do we know Him, His majestic word, His character as He tells us how to worship Him and mankind in His Ten Teachings, His Ten Commandments given to Moses and to the world? Have we gotten down on our knees and asked His forgiveness for our sin so He can forgive us our sin that He died on a cross for us all, forever, for those who confess His Name? He gave us His Son -

    John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."


  6. Are there Representatives who are in it for the power? Possibly. Are there some in it to steer this country in the right direction? Probably. Our government isn't made up of one single entity, and it is a dangerous thing to paint with a broad brush.

    Matthew 22:21

    1. I think part of the problem is there is simply too much government-yes, there has to be some, but does there really need to be so much? My guess is the best thing to do would be to slowly start reducing the number of agencies and staff(over a few decades)until you have it pared down to what is really necessary.Major changes done quickly are usually disasters.
      Less government is more transparent, and easier to keep accountable. Never make anything more complicated than it absolutely has to be to function.

  7. Very well written. If I could respectfully add one simple thing to your post it would be that the government does not want to do this to protect us. There is SO MUCH they could do to protect us but it does not suit their purpose. They want to violate the 2nd amendment to subjugate us. All the data on gun control proves we are safer with an armed citizenry then with an unarmed citizenry. There is no logicical arguement in favor of gun control that cannot be refuted by the facts. This disarming of America MUST be done out of emotion not logical and facts. It MUST be rushed through while so many people are emotional over the horrible acts of one or two nuts.

  8. For God's sake people WAKE UP!! Who wants an evil, corrupt, double dealing government of fools to "protect us"!!Wake up to the fact that they don't give a rat's behind about any of us. And we've allowed their evil to flourish by our own lack of due diligence to what has been done - for years. We still are stuck in voting for the "lesser of 2 evils" and when we really pull back the curtain - they are ALL evil.

    GET EDUCATED to what is REALLY GOING ON. Turn off the TEEVEE and the CNN (Communist News Network and the other controlled news) and open your eyes. Stupidity and ignorance of the masses is never rewarded. All the while we'vbe been drug induced - the most drugged up nation in the world, delusional thinking gets the evil doers exactly what they want - the same kind of mentality that followed the Germans, blindly into the death camps. No difference!!
    WAKTE UP!!

  9. “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.....

    “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you..."
    Deuteronomy 28

    Have the majority of America, once a nation under God, turned away from the TRUE God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? It appears they have!
