Isn't it sad when our leading elected official can't correctly quote this well known opening sentence to the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence? What happened to his teleprompter? A malfunction?
The Declaration of Independence states:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
However, Obama stated:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
But I'm not going to let the President's long pause and apparent struggle over saying "by their Creator" cause my heart to tremble. Instead, I'm going to think upon these predictions for 2011 that I got in one of those email forwards. No matter what else happens in the world in the coming year, I know these truths are also evident.
1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still be the most powerful thing on Earth.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still honor the praises of His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him.
