This years eNewsLetter is mostly high lighting the Attachment which
describes why America's default Trinitarian Christian Faith is a
healthy and necessary ingredient in the nation's
I think the Attachment proves that: "The State Has A Compelling Interest for Preserving Commerce By Presenting America's Default Faith In Public Education! ". Normally we think that the Bible should be taught in the K-12 grades; but did you know that at one time when all Ivy League colleges produced ordained ministers that the Economic Studies was in the theology department! And we thought that proselytizing by the Secular Religion first started with 'separation of church and state' in Everson v. Board of Education, 1947.

" ... Integrity is God's idea. Propagated by obedient Christians and Jews throughout the world, it is arguably the number-one asset in the effort of businesses and governments to make their economies stronger. That is why integrity is one of the most important assets of a system of ethical capitalism. It has certainly helped to build America's economic machine." [no integrity, no ethical capitalism. - ed.]
"Faith- But integrity is only part of the benefit package that often accompanies biblical faith in America. As mentioned earlier, one of the most important of these benefits is faith itself. Having faith accustoms people to making major commitments without assurance of success. Couples must marry without the help of a crystal ball that would predict all the ups and downs of their future together. Farmers plant and await crops that may or may not ripen. Investing capital, starting a business, hiring new employees - all involve risk and require faith.
In fact, the very act of accepting metal discs or pieces of paper in exchange for a day of backbreaking labor requires enormous faith. To understand the true dimensions of that faith, observe how things change in its absence. ValuJet, an airline loved by Wall Street, provided economical air travel to select destinations. When one of their planes crashed into the Florida Everglades, the airline collapsed. Why should that have occurred when other airlines have sustained catastrophic accidents and survived? In the case of ValuJet, the accident was widely perceived as symptomatic of general carelessness. There was a major loss of faith and the market responded. People stopped flying and inventors withdrew their capital. When investors lose faith in markets, when depositors lose faith in banks, when citizens lose faith in the currency, economic disaster strikes.
But as long as faith is intact, people will accept intrinsically worthless paper or metal as payment for their goods and services. They do so in the belief that when they require some commodity, a vendor will in turn accept their little metal discs or scraps of paper. As long as the future remains uncertain, people who maintain Bible-inspired faith will always have a great advantage over those who do not - whether as spouses, farmers, or investors".
"One of the Hebrew words for a businessman is Ohmein, which means "man of faith" and shares the same root with the liturgical "Amen". With no verifiable information that he will be successful selling his wares, the merchant nonetheless purchases inventory. He then delights in selling out his inventory, even vital commodities like food or clothing, in exchange for metal discs. Instead of despairing at how he will now feed and clothe his children, he has complete faith that whenever he wishes, there will be someone who will gladly sell him food or anything else for those very metal discs. This faith would be quite unfounded in many parts of the world in which stores are often without inventory and even food is scarce. Even people with money starve in those circumstances.
Were a businessman to trade on the basis of doubt and suspicion, he would contract little business at all. As we are reduced to a society that contracts deals using more and more legal documentation, our free-market economy is hindered, not helped. The dramatic increase we see in the litigiousness of American society is a consequence of the flight of faith - and a symptom of trouble ahead.
All of commerce and consequently much of human freedom depends on honest transactions conducted in good faith. This is what allows each of us to choose how to spend our energies, time and skill. It allows us to each set our own life priorities independent of any tyrant's control over our lives. But with no presumption of honesty and and reliability, free commerce must soon collapse and be replaced by a dictatorial, socialistic economy. With no faith, there is no finance."[emphasis by ed.]
Since one of the functions of the State is to regulate commerce per the commerce clause of the Constitution, it is easy to prove that 'The State Has A Compelling Interest for Preserving Capitalism By Presenting America's Default Faith In Public Education'! Commerce is not only finance and integrity. Commerce is supported by truths of science and technology upon which are built new ideas, processes, patents, manufacturing and employment all of which are major contributors to 'the bottom line'.
"It is therefore not surprising that economics used to be a field of study that belonged with religion and theology. [ ! ! It might not be surprising to him but it's a shock to me! - emphasis added by ed.] .... When the great universities moved the study of economics from their religion to their science departments, they were actually driving a wedge between capitalism [finance] and the moral arguments [basis for ethics and integrity] and spiritual dimensions [the power of faith] that underpin its validity. Rabbi Daniel Lapin - 'America's Real War', page 217, ©1999 Multinomah Publishers, Inc..
Today's study of economics is even further removed from the thread of truth since it has now been removed from the science department to the business department! By moving economics from the theology department to the science department to the business department we have lost a lot of truth, faith, trust and wisdom in finance and commerce and become more secularized and more socialistic. It is clear that if the aspiring graduate wants to be more prepared, more employable and smarter and than a Doctor of Economics from Harvard then he should read and study the Bible! If the aspiring graduate wants to be more prepared, more employable and smarter than a Juris Doctor from Harvard then he should read and study the Bible's Law and the Profits and the 10 Commandments upon which the law and justice can only rest secure! Look at what 'We the People' have failed to preserve and what we've lost: [This link goes offsite to: Classical Christian Education; A Look at Some History ByBen House.]
It appears that the future leaders of America are going to come from the Christian Colleges and Universities. Are these graduates excelling and gaining reputations as some of the best prepared, smartest professionals and excellent leaders with integrity and honesty? Are these graduates creating a large demand for their knowledge and wisdom? They should be or will be.
The State Has A Compelling Interest for Preserving Capitalism By Presenting America's Default Faith In Public Education! QED. [ So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 ]
And we thought that the Secular Religion's proselytizing first started with 'separation of church and state' in Everson v. Board of Education, 1947!
