Preface to the Patriot Institute's Constitutional Study Guide

FOR DECADES WE HAVE BEEN ATTEMPTING TO BUILD
OUR SPIRITUAL AND PATRIOTIC HOUSES
ON THE SAND, WITHOUT A FIRM FOUNDATION!
It is my firm belief that our Churches and Schools have been, at best, derelict in teaching the simple truths and basics of the Bible and the Founding Documents.
Both organizations have been infiltrated and permeated by Marxist ideology.
I am proposing that we start a “grassroots” “Home Study” type program, a unison study comparing the basic truths and strengths of Scripture and the Constitution, so that we might salvage our Churches, the Republic, and our families by illuminating the truths and principles found therein. We will demonstrate how they have been desecrated by the Marxist ideology, and how we can return them to their rightful place in the heart and soul of men, women, and children.
This can not be accomplished in a one day seminar or work shop. These basics need to be presented in a series of classes in order to fully grasp the fundamentals and the strengths of each. One then has to continue the study and application on a personal basis at home, work, and worship. You must live and share these basic principles and truths with family, friends, and acquaintances in order to regenerate and preserve the original meanings, thus bringing about the survival of the Republic.
This is a very basically designed proposal of what needs to be studied so that one may hopefully comprehend the enormity of power and wisdom that both the Scriptures and the Founding Documents possess. The study is only the beginning. When completed it will have provided the Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge one needs to properly study and apply the truths of Scripture and the Founding Documents resulting in the application guidelines to continue the Scriptural/Patriotic life style as one comprehends it. This is a work in progress. Hopefully it can be implemented by the end of 2013 and continue ad infinitum.
I believe that there was Devine guidance in the Founding Documents, the Founders called it “Manifest Destiny,” and I know that the Scriptures were Divinely Inspired, thus the teaching of the Scriptures and the Founding Documents in unison seem to me to be a very logical approach to enhancing the meaning and understanding of each.
IS IT TOO LATE TO SHORE UP THOSE HOUSES AND TURN THEM INTO HOMES BUILT UPON A FIRM FOUNDATION?
