Changing The Meaning of Words- 9-26-22 1

“If the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded.”

― Noah Webster

Noah Webster’s words could not be truer. This is a man whose wisdom was greatly revered by our founding fathers. The true meaning of words was so important to him, that in 1806, he published the Compendious Dictionary of the English Language. His dictionary was the first American Dictionary and to this day is truly a masterpiece.

Today, there are those who change the meanings of words as fast as their lips move. They are the ones who claim our US Constitution is a living document. Want to know the exact meaning of what’s written in it - just go to Webster’s 1806 Dictionary.

Why should a Christian vote for anyone who would change words to diminish the true meaning of human life? How about something as basic as a man and a woman? Tell me, has the meaning of the word “secure” suddenly changed? It must be, as we hear the President, Vice President and Secretary of Homeland Security tell us, that our Southern border is “secure” as millions of foreign nationals stream across our open border. When hyper inflation stayed on the same trajectory 2 months in row, our president said it was zero inflation. Sorry, zero inflation actually means no inflation. You can’t change the meaning of numbers too.

We know the truth, no matter how tongue twisting politicians try to say it isn’t so. The fact is, we have just weeks to figure out who to vote for. The last day to register to vote is October 11th. Early ballots will be mailed out October 12th If you cast your ballot at the polls like me, election day is November 8th.

My values say abortion is not “women’s health”. Gender is determined at birth and is not fluid. Mutilating the genitals of dysphoric children is not gender affirming care. Equity doesn’t mean men playing in women’s sports and sharing locker rooms and showers with young women. The list goes on and on.

Elections are not a spectator sport, sitting on the sidelines is not an option. There’s a lot more on the ballot than who will provide basic government services. As biblical citizens, let’s not neglect our duty to elect representatives with the highest moral character and whose values align with the bible. Every vote counts.
