Following is Bishop Council Nedd’s Introduction of Presidential Candidate, Sen. Rand Paul
As many of you know, Ascension Day was just this past Thursday and Yesterday was Ascension Sunday. The apostles’ reactions immediately prior to the Ascension tell a significant story. They illustrate with crystal clarity the stubbornness with which we subordinate God’s agenda to our own, and we do this without actually realizing it. In the same way that there was a disconnect between what Christ said and what the Apostles heard… there is a similar disconnect between what our Founding Father intended and how we are interpreting it almost 250 years later.
Christ was focused on servant leadership… While those around him were interested merely in accumulating power.
Shortly you will hear from another great servant leader.
Senator Rand Paul has been a leader since arriving in Washington. He is not a career politician. He is a citizen legislator and surgeon who demonstrates servant leadership regularly when he uses his very little free time to perform free surgical procedures for those in need.
Our nation is at a crossroads.
Will we continue on the path to an ever bigger and more intrusive government?
…Will we make a U turn and finally begin to restore this nation?
We the people are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. However, that has been warped over the centuries. Governments have no rights. People have rights. Governments have responsibilities that are delegated to them by the people.
Rand Paul will fight to protect the constitution. He will fight to protect the American people. He’s not afraid to speak his mind and we’ll see that demonstrated in the next few days as Washington debates the Patriot Act.
The status quo is not tenable. We have been fooling ourselves too long. As was said right here in this very city in 1776. What we are doing right now is a lot like calling an ox a bull. He is thankful for the distinction, but would much rather have restored what is rightfully his.
Senator Paul can restore this nation to some semblance of what our founders intended, and to what God has blessed for so long.
