The Bible is why we have morals.
Our morals are why we have a constitution.
Our constitution is why we have a democracy.
Our democracy is why we’re still free.
But if we turn our backs on the Bible,
we abandon our morals;
we corrupt the constitution;
we denounce our democracy,
we will forfeit our freedom.
Our republic was founded by
Bible reading men and women.
But if we forget our Christian upbringing,
we will be reminded by its ending.

Commentary: The First Amendment is the chief corner-stone to the Constitution, which upholds our democracy. Don’t be deceived into believing, you don’t need the First Amendment. If you willingly surrender your rights, what makes you think, the government can be trusted—to not trick you—into giving up your Second Amendment, also. Even if you resist, it will be too late, because you’ve already forfeited your First Amendment—Freedom of Speech and Assembly protections. The forfeiture of our First Amendment, whether by coercion, deceit or choice is the greatest threat to our democracy! “When you take care of your first priority, everything else will be okay” or “When you do first things—first, everything else will fall in place. However, if you do second things—first, everything else will fall apart”. Our Founders were cognizant of how subtle, government tyranny can be. We owe them a debt of gratitude, for amending the Constitution with the Bill of Rights!
In conclusion, the Second Amendment only serves as a guarantee that our First Amendment protections are defended. But don’t be deceived, when the Second Amendment was enacted, it was to serve as a deterrent against government tyranny. Back in December 1791, it was probably feasible for a militia of colonists with muskets to subvert the standing army. However in our current state, a militia of armed citizens would never be able to overthrow the government, because the armed forces possess weapons of mass destruction. So basically, if our First Amendment falls, our Second Amendment advocates won’t be able to defend themselves and as a consequence whomever orchestrates a military coup will eventually rule over the survivors.
The Lord God says: “In the day that I cleanse you from all your offenses, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places to be rebuilt. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” Bible, Ezekiel 36:26,33
