Bob Schulz Presents: "CONTINENTAL CONGRESS 2009" - Wheaton, IL 1/18/09 1 PM
On Christmas Day 2008 Bob Schulz published this message which said, in part, the following:
The People Draw the Line in the Sand
On this Christmas day, and faced with our daunting cause, we are reminded of scripture. In Paul’s letter to the Romans he wrote:
“….There is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. For he is God’s servant to do you good.
“….For he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute God’s wrath on him who practices evil, so be afraid…for he does not bear the sword in vain. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing…” Romans 13:1-6
And from Jefferson we have:
"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever." (excerpts are inscribed on the walls of the Jefferson Memorial in the nations capital) [Source: Merrill . D. Peterson, ed., Jefferson Writings, (New York: Literary Classics of the United States, Inc., 1984), Vol. IV, p. 289. From Jefferson's Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, 1781.]
Jefferson wasn’t the only Founder moved by such reasoning. They all knew the evils associated with a reliance on the whims of men, elected or otherwise, for individual Liberties and Freedoms.
Unanimously, in signing the Declaration, they all recognized that individual Liberties are endowed by “Nature’s God” and the “Creator,” and they all relied on the protection of “divine Providence” as they set forth to end Government’s violations of those Liberties, pledging to each other “our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” Click here to access the rest of this update.
On the day before Christmas Bob and his wife, Judy, got in their van to begin a nationwide tour that will bring them in front of concerned citizens all across America. The purpose of this tour is to announce plans for a "Continental Congress" that will represent an historic gathering of individuals who will dedicate themselves to returning our great country back to the foundational roots of our Republic.
