A Convention to propose amendments to the United States Constitution, also called an Article V Convention, or Amendments Convention, called for by two-thirds (currently 34) of the state legislatures, is one of two processes authorized by Article Five of the United States Constitution whereby the Constitution, the nation's frame of government, may be altered. Amendments may also be proposed by the Congress with a two-thirds vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Deuteronomy 5:7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me. 8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, 10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
2 Kings 18:4 He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan. (That is, a piece of brass.)
2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
The U.S. Constitution was established by and for a godly people. The framers made it clear that it would only work for a Christian nation. However, it has been turned into a god that will solve all of Americas problems. It is a piece of paper that has been exalted to godhood in America.
We are surrounded by continual calls to return to the Constitution, and Americas problems will be solved. It certainly is not difficult to see that the piece of paper, the Constitution, has replaced God with the Constitution; it has become Americas god. God will have on other gods before Him, and we can count on His judgment against our Nehushtan.
A renewed political solution is coming to the forefront for our present social and political problems. The call for an Article V Constitution Convention has been around for several years, and those of us who recognized the danger have withstood it. Two thirds of the states are required, and 34 are on board. However, several withdrew their support, but I am sure those who want to destroy the current Constitution will not allow their withdrawal. A Con-Con will deal with far more than Article X, which is the article being used to get popular support for a Con-Con. Article X can be enforced without a Con-Con.
However, no matter how hard man tries to solve the problems created by a Humanistic state, anything but Biblical solutions will only increase the problems, and the power of the central government. We can be assured that Biblical solutions will not even be considered in any kind of Convention that seeks reign in our humanistic government.
A Convention of States is being promoted by some big names in the conservative movement. (Example https://conventionofstates.com/) But that effort is nothing more than a renewed effort to rewrite or replace our Constitution. The COS is a Constitutional Convention under another name, which has been fought against for years by those of us who value the Constitution. If a Con-Con is ever invoked, our Constitution will be null and void. There are not enough "right" leaning states to push through a Conservative agenda. Only in ones wildest imagination will our Constitution be improved upon.
If the convention is called, the disunion that has become a faith in some conservative quarters will run amok. Economic oligarchy will be established in law, and any political check on the powers of business likely will be eviscerated.
As to the former, the Koch Brothers and other aspiring oligarchs are the money behind the movement toward a convention. As to the latter, the whole thing is being sold under the camouflage of a desire to enact a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitutionaka The Worst Idea In American Politics. But even the late Antonin Scalia admitted that a convention so called cannot be limited to one topic, and, anyway, a visit to the website of Convention of the States Project, one of the most prominent organizations in favor of the convention, reveals that the convention is a device for profound political sabotage Mr. Madison saw it coming. All of it. The mercantile power arrayed against political democracy. Politicians who become servants of the money power and not the people who elected them, and opportunists who would take advantage of these conflicts for their own benefits. As he wrote in Federalist 10:
It is in vain to say that enlightened statesmen will be able to adjust these clashing interests, and render them all subservient to the public good. Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm. Nor, in many cases, can such an adjustment be made at all without taking into view indirect and remote considerations, which will rarely prevail over the immediate interest which one party may find in disregarding the rights of another or the good of the whole.
Faction, he called it. And he saw it for what it was: a genetic disorder of the republic that is fatal if not controlled. (https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/politics/a14841457/convention-of-states-campaign-secession/)
Our Constitution was written for a Christian population, but a new or rewritten Constitution will be written by and for an anti-Christ Humanist population. Freedom of speech will be gone; right to bear arms will be gone, followed by gun confiscation. Find who benefits from these changes, and you will find who is financing this renewed effort to remove our Constitutional protections. All the repressive governments of the world have yielded to US pressure, and have established a Constitution, even Russia, China, &c. Yet look at how the freedom of religion as enshrined in their constitutions is put into action. Homeschooling will be abolished, parental rights will be gone, and all the things we have cherished for the last 200 years will be written out of the Constitution by a Constitution Convention.
With Constitutional protection gone, the persecution Christ promised will begin. We must not forget the Muslim influence Obama brought in. There is enough influence that some states have elected Muslim representatives. Thanks to Obama, there will be Muslim influence in rewriting the constitution
Balanced budget amendment? Dream on O fool. Neither the politicians nor the public will stand for reduced spending, for every town, city, community, fire department, school board, disaster relief &c., are dependent on federal grants, which must come from borrowed money. The taxpayers will not tolerate the tremendous added taxes that will be needed to pay for all the things covered by federal grants.
Moreover, experience proves that neither the Federal government nor the school boards will cut their budgets, for there are too many on the gravy train. (Locally, $900 each for pictures in the new schools weight lifting department, and just the school tax is over 60% of our property tax.) The Federal government, local governments and school boards will bankrupt everyone rather than reduce in size or cut their expenditures.
Follow the money, and you will find who is financing this effort to destroy Constitution. Has the anti-God, destructive element finally found a way to deceive the conservatives into the Con-Con trap, which will accomplish their agenda to remove the protections we have enjoyed over the years?
