    bless (v.) [​IMG]
    Old English bletsian, bledsian, Northumbrian bloedsian "to consecrate, make holy, give thanks," from Proto-Germanic *blodison "hallow with blood, mark with blood," from *blotham "blood" (see blood (n.)). Originally a blood sprinkling on pagan altars. This word was chosen in Old English bibles to translate Latin benedicere and Greek eulogein, both of which have a ground sense of "to speak well of, to praise," but were used in Scripture to translate Hebrew brk "to bend (the knee), worship, praise, invoke blessings." L.R. Palmer ("The Latin Language") writes, "There is nothing surprising in the semantic development of a word denoting originally a special ritual act into the more generalized meanings to 'sacrifice,' 'worship,' 'bless,'" and compares Latin immolare (see immolate). Meaning shifted in late Old English toward "pronounce or make happy," by resemblance to unrelated bliss. No cognates in


    As i said before if they were "good christians" they would had followed Romans 13 and not rebelled.

    No such thing as "good Christians".

    The sooner you get that through your thick skull, the sooner people will actually enjoy engaging with you in theological discussions.

    Religion is good for cultural unity and is much needed to keep Europe from going to the dogs. But the US doesn't need Christianity.

    You are claiming that America was founded as a christian nation, yet you ignore the fact that America breaking from Britain was anti-christian.

    Also if it was intended to be made a christian nation with a divine right, it would not had started with "We the People" but "By divine right".

    There is absolutely nothing christian about the American constitution and you are grasping at straws to try to draw legitimacy through semantics, no wonder you tried to use semantics to try and discredit my argument.

    Funny you throw out the term "semantics", especially when you can't answer the simple question of why the word "Blessings" was utilized within the first sentence of The U.S. Constitution.

    You sound like a jihadist, trying to draw conclusions from nowhere.

    Funny thing, considering the origins of the word Liberty and its association with Liber the Roman god of wine and hedonism, a god who blessed the roman people with freedom when the Romans overthrew their kings and established a republic.

    So if you want to go full cryptologist, then the Blessing of Liberty actually means the blessings of the pagan god of freedom, wine and deabuchery that delivered the Populus from their kings and gave them the republic.
