“You sure are an optimist. I just dont understand your basis for it.”
Some might call it Faith...James puts it in proper perspective...
“Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
(James 2:17-20 KJV)
Our Founding Fathers had faith, and by their works that faith bore the reality of a great nation. Their faith was made perfect by their good works. It is again time for that kind of faith, supported by works...that we might again become a great nation.
Our Founders were few, not in the majority. Today we find it similarly so, yet the faith of a few willing to support that faith by good works can resort in the Phoenix rising from the ashes.
This is exactly the sentiment needed for a daunting, if not seemingly impossible challenge.
