Time To Engage God's (America's) Enemies
It has been said that all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to stand by and do nothing. It's time for Christians to pull our heads out of the sand and take a stand.
One man in California has the Supreme Court of this land now reviewing whether the phrase "under God" should be removed from our Pledge of Allegiance. The Chief Justice of State of Alabama cannot have a display of the Ten Commandments on courthouse property, despite that they are commonly acknowledged to be the basis for all of Western Law. A high school in Louisiana is being sued by the ACLU for saying prayers before football games.
The Liberal Secular Extremists cite the mythical "wall of separation" clause... which appears nowhere in our Constitution.
This is a war, and it is a war to remove every mention of God from every corner of American public life. The goal here is not to enforce our Founders' intent in having written the Constitution, rather it is to eradicate the single source of goodness, truth, and justice (and all of our Constitutionally listed rights...!) the world has in its possession... the Holy Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
If indeed our Rights as enumerated in our Constitution are inalienablethat is, cannot be taken from usbecause, as our founders wrote, they are granted to us by God the Creator Himself, what praytell becomes of those "Rights" once God is forbidden His rightful place... or even any place... in our society or Government?
If the Christians in America, a nation founded by Christians upon the solid rock of the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, do not fight back with everything God has blessed us with, then we are giving victory to an evil which intends to consume us. We are allowing the immoral to dictate the terms to the moral, and that is then game, set, and match.
There is far more at stake here than whether Washington was a Deist, or whether one sentence from Jefferson's letter to some guy in Connecticut should be used to supersede and reinterpret our entire Constitution. These are not valid arguments, and The Library of Congress has extensive documentation available online which dispels any such deceit.
For this war to have gotten to the advanced stage where it now sits on our doorstep and snarls at us like the Hounds of Hell unleashed is the fault not of the minions of Satan who merely do the bidding of their vile master, rather it is the fault of every Christian in this once God-fearing nation who has sat idly by and hoped it would go away.
It is not going to go away. It is coming for us... in our homes, our schools, our places of work and our places of worship. It is time to take a stand and speak the Truth. Then speak It again. And again.
Inasmuch as this conflict, for the time being, remains a war of ideas and ideology, it is still possible to fight it just by speaking out, by letting the Holy Spirit within us move our hearts and tongues to take a vocal and unrelenting stand for what is right.
Whether our discourse in this matter offends some Muslims or Krishnas is not at issue. It is, in fact, a non-issue, and has no place in our deliberations. It is a diversion concocted by those who hate God.
The only issue here is whether our discourse offends God. We can pray that it lifts Him up in praise and glorifies Him, for that in the only way that we will succeed in our quest.
We must raise an outcry that reaches not only to the ACLU, not only to our schools, not only to the courts, not only to the Congress of the United States...
...but one which reaches straight to Heaven, for it is there, and there alone, where all hope for mankindand Americalies.
May God give us His will, the strength to fight this good fight.
You read it. You are the one who has the bogus liberal education.
Most people I know assocaite the word "liberal" with a leftie. Don't blame me that the meanings of words have changed over 200 years.
If you don't think morality is important, then I feel sorry for you. John Adams said the Constitution was "written for a moral and religious people and it is inadequate for the government of any other." Apparently, our Constitution is inadequate for you and others like you who scoff at right and wrong.
We agree. Good point. God's Word in the Bible insists that all Christians become lamps of Christ's love to the rest of the world, that we shine the Light of His Love into the dark corners of this world and the dark corners of men's hearts... through witnessing evangelism, and through the examples we set in our own lives.
The recent "Any Mention Of God Is Hate Speech" trend, where Christ in the manger is no longer allowed at Christmas Nativity displays, and all other attempts of Satan and his putrefacted minions to stifle the spreading of the Good News of Jesus Christ, must not be put up with by Christians any longer.
We are told to be on the front lines of this war, not waiting in the shadows for somebody else to carry our water.
Honestly, it's hard to say. It is radical to offer office only to Christians and to allow only Christians as U.S. citizens, but the context of the times must be considered. The U.S. at that time was 99% Christian. There were hardly any other religions to speak of in America at that time (smattering of catholics and jewish citizens). It was a Christian nation - that's a simple historical fact. John Jay's motives may have been good - I can't read his motives, and I can't put myself in 1790.
In any case, no man is perfect and he may be wrong for refusing citizenship to catholics regardless of the consensus.
Regardless, he was a contributor to the Federalist papers and the first chief justice of the Supreme Court, and he was a true believer in my opinion. So God will be his judge. I can't see a man's motive - only God can. And I believe the answer lies in his motive.
Thank you for illustrating for all your opinion of what "Christian" means. What are you doing posting on a Christian thread? Are you here just to disrupt?
I think individual freedom is more important. I am of the opinion that without individual freedom to choose to do evil, a man cannot be called good. I do not believe you can pass moral judgement against an evil act in an oppressive society because I consider freedom the basis of morality, not the other way around.
Apparently, our Constitution is inadequate for you and others like you who scoff at right and wrong.
If the only thing beyond the scope of the Constitution that the US government did was to run the US Air Force then I'd be perfectly happy with our Constitution. In fact I am as it is, my gripes are with those inbred idiots that cannot understand that the 2nd amendment's preposition phrase has no meaning, not to mention their inability to read the rest of the constitution for comprehension. It's like the WoD, what part of the US Government not having intrastate commerce regulatory powers do so many allegedly strict constructionist conservatives not understand?
