The God-Given Wisdom of Solomon

| Opinion | January 3, 2020

From the book of Kings: “At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, ‘Ask for whatever you want me to give you.’

‘Now, Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties. Your servant is here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?’”

As we look back on the past year and consider the actions of our often childish, so-called ruling elite in the Democrat-dominated House of Representatives, can we say that any among them has the God-given wisdom of King Solomon? They have failed to learn the lessons of history. They have cast off the proven values and wisdom based on knowledge gained from 5000 years of Western civilization. They are the so-called leftist-progressives.

2019 has left We the People at a turning point. 2020 will be a time of choosing. We must choose between liberty and tyranny, light and dark, individual freedom and subservience to the state. Yes, even good and evil. As Mark Levin might say, “There, I said it!”

I can hear you saying, “Who am I to judge? I do not have the God-given wisdom of Solomon.” In fact, you have been given that wisdom. We have allowed the tyranny of the state and the darkness of evil to hide it from us. We have allowed the removal of the Decalogue (The Ten Commandments) from the public square, which for thousands of years provided wisdom on how to live free in a civil society. We have forgotten natural law, as referred to by Thomas Jefferson in our Declaration of Independence when he wrote about our unalienable individual rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as coming from our Creator.


Without the wisdom of Solomon, the leftist-progressives have partnered with darkness by promoting ignorance of the Ten Commandments and natural law. With their support for late-term and postpartum abortion, they defy “Do not murder.” Programs that came out of the New Deal supporting single motherhood stand opposed to honoring mother and father. Leftist-progressives have abused “Do not bear false witness” in testimony attacking Justice Cavanaugh and President Trump. They encourage envy and coveting to justify theft from those whom they decide do not need their wealth. They have actively assaulted our individual liberties of speech, free practice of religion and self-defense through the right to keep and bear arms. The values of the leftist stand in opposition to Mosaic Law and Western civilization. If you challenge their positions and support individual rights and liberties, you become labeled as a racist, a hater and evil. They seek to silence all opposition. They revel in the dark. They do not embrace the God-given wisdom of Solomon.

It’s now 2020, and the time for choosing wisdom has come. Have you marked your door for Passover? You must judge if your candidates live The Decalogue and the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Do they support individual liberty and independence or subservience to the collective and the state? Do they seek to silence those with whom they disagree? Reject darkness and seek the God-given wisdom of Solomon in yourselves and our candidates. “Let freedom ring throughout the land!”
