God and Country

One thing that I’ve noticed while attending Cowboy Action Shooting™ events is that overt display of “God and Country”.  The Stars and Stripes are on display, the pledge to the flag is given and every State shoot that I have attended has offered a prayer to the LORD before the match and has had Cowboy Church on Sunday Morning.  It says in Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD….”.   Under this banner America was formed. 

Around two and a half centuries ago a small band of patriots stood up for God, Freedom, Country, truth and justice.  In so doing they placed their property, families and lives on the line, but ultimately they went on to overwhelm the most powerful Nation of that day.  They were victorious, not because of their shrewd governmental skills, nor their exceptional military strength or their great wealth.  No, they won and were blessed because they trusted in the LORD their GOD.  And under the banner of their faith, through prayer, they founded a country like none other and called it, “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”.  They honored God by mentioning Him in their writings, in the Declaration of Independence, and in the Constitution.  They placed the words “In God we trust” on the Walls of Congress, and on our currency.  God has honored this Country because of them.  There is no other country in the world that has the freedom and rights that we have in America.

The second President of America, John Adams, is quoted as saying, “Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

And also

“Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the principle upon which Freedom can securely stand.”

Under this banner only America was formed and will continue to prosper.  Under this banner Cowboy Action will do likewise.

Hope ta see ya on the trail.
