THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
I pledged allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands. One nation under God
indivisible with liberty and justice for all."
Whenever we make a pledge, it means we take a solemn oath of allegiance. We make a solemn vow which we pledge on our honor to kept. In this case this particular pledge of allegiance begins with our nation's flag, old glory herself.
Next it switches our focus to our beloved nation, The United States of America. We make a pledge about the type of government our nation was founded on. Which once was a republic but now is a demography. The allegiance does not change, in this case, just because our form of representative government did. It is still suppose to be a government for and by the people.
The consent to follow the guidelines our national infrastructure represents. "One nation under God," is letting our nation know we were founded by a belief in a supreme being. We place our nation under subjection to him. Many people would love to have that particular phrase removed. Chiefly because they find any positive reference to God objectionable.
Abraham Lincoln knew more than any other president of the United States of America. When he made his famous biblically based statement. "A house divided against itself cannot stand."
In order for our nation to continue to become functional, it needs to remain. Indivisible and it does not mean we will not have difference points of view and opinions. Which the basic premise of any freedom loving society is based upon.
"With liberty and justice for all." All of our people are entitled to liberty and justice. It is just the scales of justice seem to be tiled favoring one group of people above all others. Never before in our modern history has the outcry for social justice and reform been louder than it is today. When the smoke clears and reason is restored. Will any badly needed reforms become permanent or only expedient? The verdict is still pending!
Love in Christ Jesus!
