We the people
For the benefit of the doubt, we are not: "We the People of these United States of America" Like on money "In God we trust" or "George Washington's Prayer for the Nation:" to Jesus Christ. We are children of God, as God so loved the World, He gave His only begotten Son. So let's get the story straight! We the people sectualizes us from the world. Do you think God likes His name on filthy lucre or "In God we trust" study the rich young ruler that went away sad, for he had many goods. I once owned a gold $20 dollar piece 1908 No Motto St. Gaudens and I felt guilty about it not recognizing God on the coin, but before meditation on the rare coin, I sold it on eBay and bought a Sheepherder Wood-Coal Cook Stove with the proceeds from Ready-Made Resources, and saved a bundle on oil heat and electricity. Now I don't feel guilty I owned the rare coin, because God's name don't belong on filthy lucre. The stove is an international best seller with Christ as the Shepherd. What's the point? We are not "We the people," we are children of God, just like everyone else on the planet. Jesus died "once" and for "all." "It is finished." Amen.
