The Foundation of the Mervar Campaign

The descent down the path of tyranny in our state is directly linked to our lack of reverence, respect and adherence to the Word of God.

As Teddy Roosevelt said,
"The teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined with our civic and social life that it would be impossible for us to figure what life would be if these teachings were removed."

Indiana has lost her way, because she is trying to figure out how to live life without the solid foundation of God's Word.

This is why the Bible is the foundation of every belief, issue and fight of the Mervar Campaign.

A person holding the Holy BibleJohn Adams, the second President of the United States, wisely said, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

From where does this morality come? It comes from a people whose lives are submitted to the obedience of the eternal Word of God.

Without the Scriptures, man is simply left to compare ideas and argue over whose way is best. There must be an absolute standard of truth.

When asked about why he attended church services as President, Thomas Jefferson replied,
"The Christian religion is the best religion that has been given to man and I, as Chief Magistrate of this nation, am bound to give it the sanction of my example."

My family and I are not ashamed of the Word of God. Everyone benefits from following the truths laid out in this book.

The removal of God's Word from the public square and our schools has been one of our state's greatest follies.

As a prime example of this, The Ten Commandments ought to be taught and be prominently displayed in our schools again. Would we not all agree that teaching our children it is wrong to steal, murder, commit adultery and covet and to respect the God who gave them breath is beneficial to all?

"With regard to the history contained in the Bible, it is not so much praiseworthy to be acquainted with as it is shameful to be ignorant of it." - John Quincy Adams, sixth President of the United States

"Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." - Psalm 119:105
