Heart and Soul � JDs Bunker

Heart and Soul � JDs Bunker:

"Heart and Soul

America’s soul is individual liberty.

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. – Matthew 10:28 (NIV)

The meaning of America’s soul resides in the American heart.

For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. – Mark 7: 21-22 (NIV)

At our Nation’s birth, we declared that our nation’s soul derived from unalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator and among them were life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

That implies that if our liberty, our national soul, is endowed to us by our Creator, then it can only be taken from us by our creator, “the One who can destroy both soul and body…” The United States of America is just the body in which the national soul resides."
