Restore Prosperity and
Bible; Prolonging Our Days in the Land
Bible: We Ought to Obey God Rather than Man
Bible: To Guide our Feet in the way of Peace
Deuteronomy 5:33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.
Acts Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, we ought to obey God rather than men.
Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
This once most prosperous nation on earth is now in a dive toward financial failure.
WE HAVE HISTORY ON OUR SIDE REGARDING PROSPERITY.
THERE IS HOPE BECAUSE WE WORSHIP OUR CREATOR GOD
OUR EARLY YEARS GIVES DIRECTION
In our first 100 years, with much smaller federal government, we became the greatest wealth producer on earth by 1893; in the last 27 years of that 100 year era we produced 20 federal annual surpluses with 7 deficit years. The federal tax rate was about 4% and it was collected via the tariff, no forms for the average person to complete and submit. The average wage was about 7 cents per hour. (No federal minimum wage laws).
HOW THAT WEALTH PRODUCTION CAME ABOUT
With the integrity of a significantly Christian population, relatively sound money, legally binding contracts and “supply and demand” wages; and a small federal government - the PEOPLE GREW THE ECONOMY; companies hired labor, they built and sold products and competition kept the company’s competitive. Such that by 1893 we produced the above stated wealth.
THE EARLY WAY OF LIFE
Schools used the New England Primer to teach reading and writing and taught that there is a God and how to pray. That learning guide was very popular, million copies had been sold by 1830. https://www.britannica.com/topic/The-New-England-Primer and another web view http://www.free2pray.info/Primer.html

STATE 2 OUR NATION: THE PEOPLE LOST THEIR WAY
1890 THE FALL OF OUR NATION BEGINS:
In the latest 127 years, we have and are continuing to vote for more government; which we can no longer afford. And we have been the victims of problematic Supreme Court decisions that have allowed our government to grow excessively and now, I believe, that we are on verge of hyperinflation. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-07-16/how-likely-hyperinflation-us

Good “Intention” to help the people by adopting programs using powers not granted in the constitution. We added to our federal budgets: Social Security in 1935, Education in 1940, and Health Care in 1965; costs of these programs are bringing our federal government to its knees financially.
MANDATED DEFICIT SPENDING IN 61ST YEAR
Our federal law requires deficit spending since our obligation to pay exceeds all federal income, including income for Medicare and Social Security.
VAST UNDER REPORTED DEBT
Cash based accounting under reports the true debt and that debt reported exceeds $20.493 trillion.
MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY
Congress created Medicare and Social Security programs providing massive income to the federal government; but it has spent all that money on current bills. (They have an IOU on file naming those who paid into system).
By already spending the money taken in for these programs and by promising to pay in the future, it has created an unfunded liability estimated to be $210 trillion. https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnmauldin/2017/10/10/your-pension-is-a-lie-theres-210-trillion-of-liabilities-our-government-cant-fulfill/#ebf9d1065b1f
The above is applicable if the congress continues to pay.
In 1960 The Supreme Court ruled that no such contract exists, and that there is no contractual right to receive Social Security payments. Payments due under Social Security are not “property” rights and are not protected by the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment.
HOW LONG CAN THE DEFICITS CONTINUE?
Today we are deficit spending $2 billion per day, 7 days a week. It makes us feel wealthy, hiding the reality that we are close to being broke. Congress is vastly under reporting the real debt.
of the significant under reporting:

This letter is intended to motivate the Church to educate the Christian people so that we know the problem(s) with our government and what to do to fix them. The big challenge is to fix our congress so that it will steer our government back to compliance with our constitution; as written!
Church was very involved in our pre constitution days; Election Day sermons were common
practice in 18th Century
Now our people need the Church more than ever before.
In our favor, there is a super majority of Christians in our population.

CHARACTER OF CONGRESS
QUOTE “Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature ... If the next centennial does not find us a great nation...it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”
THE JOHNSON AMENDMENT
“purportedly motivated by activities of charities allied to one of his (Johnson’s) opponents during his 1954 primary election.” This quote from this web site: https://www.unitedphilforum.org/resources/policy-update-johnson-amendment

CHRISTIAN POPULATION; SUPER MAJORITY
The Christian portion of our population is about 70%; that is a super majority. Pew Research Pole of over 35,000 Americans in 50 states in 2014, http://www.pewforum.org/religious-landscape-study/ .
To restore our country to its constitution and the freedoms and liberties will require some corrections; such as constitutional amendments. These corrections, I believe, can only come about with the unity of Christians; united by Churches working together to elect congress persons that will vote for the amendments needed; A HUGE CHALLENGE. These are Article V error corrections.
This video discusses Article VI corrections; action on this front is very optimistic in potential of changing the attitude of congress persons that are in office. Please see this one hour video: “Reign in Big Government” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3MQ4wHjULw&feature=youtu.be
The Church, in history, has been very active in the shaping of our government. See chapter 3 of “The New England Clergy and The American Revolution;” https://archive.org/stream/newenglandclergy00bald#page/18/mode/2up
President Trump has promised to repeal the Johnson Amendment which (I believe unconstitutionally) limits Church activities in elections.
As one example constitutional amendment: we could amend the constitution to prohibit abortion. To do that we first must elect a congress of which 2/3rds in US House and Senate would vote for proposal to amend the constitution.
Another challenge is the income tax repeal; that law is a significant divider of Christian votes. That is an obstacle that probably could be overcome, possibly, with the guidance of the Church.
What can the Church Do? I believe that the Church can teach the truth to both adults and children about the constitution and violations of constitution and what the government has done to us as a result of the demands of the people. (This, because the people have lost sight of the meaning of the constitution.)
The action of the Church, I believe, is urgent. The
people do not seem to know that the government is deficit spending to
maintain the appearance of tremendous wealth. Last government fiscal year,
