“We are a good people, the only nation in the world built on an idea.
That all of us, every one of us, is created equal in the image of God.”
Joe ‘Bite-Me’ Biden
2023 SOTU Address
1.) The Scripture teaches that there is none who are righteous. Christianity has always taught the idea of man’s sin nature and the truth of original sin. Biden’s speech stands in direct contradiction to Christianity 101. We are not a good people. We are a people who have a fallen sin nature who must be redeemed before we can even begin to pursue goodness.
2.) Note the pushing of the idea that the USA is a propositional nations. America, as founded, was never intended to be a nation built on an idea. That idea that we are a nation built on an idea came with the rule of the tyrant Abraham Lincoln who famously, but errantly said that this nation was “dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” This idea of a propositional nation was when Lincoln seared it into America’s consciousness in 1863 with the Gettysburg address and it is still a lie when Joe Bite-Me repeats it in 2023. America, as the Constitution states formed a nation for white Europeans and their descendants. America was originally formed as a White Christian Nation.
3.) It is true that we are all created in the image of God. It is decidedly not true that we are all created equal in the image of God. It is clear and obvious that all men do not have the same abilities, capacities, giftedness, and talents. Men have never been created equal in the image of God. Men have been and continue to be created diverse in the image of God. So, from the Christian understanding all men are equal inasmuch as they are made of the same dirt, all men are equal inasmuch as they are all equally responsible before God’s law, all men are equal inasmuch as they are all equally dead in their sins and trespasses but all men are not equal inasmuch as they are all the same or will all realize the same potential if they are all given equal opportunity. This idea is nothing but long established and now accepted Liberal gobbledygook.
