Government Plans Hardly Ever Work Out as Planned
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 28-Jul-12; Sermon #1113c; 12 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, reflecting upon the shocking revelation that the Obama Administration has saddled this country with more indebtedness than all other presidential administrations combined, asks whether there is anything the government does well. Government knows how to grow itself (after the manner of virulent cancer cells), creating more and more public employees with higher salaries. Unfortunately, the government does not grow wealth; it only takes wealth produced from others. The United States Department of Agriculture has paid out costly subsidies to farmers and has mandated that they grow hybridized gene-spliced corn and wheat. These changes have produced a product with a high proportion of gluten, a major contributory factor in obesity and diabetes. Much of the hybridized seeds are deleterious to health. When we thank God and ask for His blessing on our meals, we must also ask Him to safeguard us from the effects which tampering genetic engineers have brought upon us.
