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.
It is astounding that you accuse me of being a non believer.
And the truth is, it is rather astounding that there is a God. The proof that he exists is overwhelming to me, but it's hard to imagine why he lets things get like they are. But that for another thread.
As to the United States having some special blessing from God which other countries don't have is rather un-biblical. But you should know that, being a wonk and all that.
The greatest trick Satan ever performed was to convince the secular World that he didn't exist, and that they weren't in fact doing his bidding.
Choose this day whom you will serve.
Nonsense. History check needed.
It's in a moral freefall and it's nothing new.
Might it be because he blesses those who obey Him, and lets those who wish to keep their backs turned to Him? Indeed, could "things being like they are" be the result of people living with their backs turned to God?
If someone asks me "Where was God when I lost my job, my home and my family!?", I'm tempted to reply, "Most likely right where you left Him..."
OHHHHH, so it is the definition of what "under God" that we may see differently. I only saw that as saying that God is over the United States, not that we were his favorites or anything.
Most Americans now think for themselves.
or: "Most Americans have already been brainwashed enough to be incapable of thinking for themselves"
You mean like we have a choice? He gives us a choice?
That's exactly what you're doing and you know it. You want a "Christian government" in which non-Christians will be second-class minorities. If a theocracy is such a good thing, why not just come out and say so?
I don't care what the secular humanist anti-Christian liberals say about religious freedom. You and they need to argue with the founding fathers. Congress PAID for the printing of the first bible in 1782 and inside that bible it says, "For use of schools". They gave sermons at graduations, they paid for missionary trips to the indians, etc. etc. I don't care what your personal viewpoint is - history is on MY SIDE. The only people on YOUR SIDE are the revionists, the ACLU, and their ilk. And I will never be stopped from preaching the gospel IN PUBLIC.
So, history and you are at odds. Deal with it.
Really? Are you going to get a rebate on your taxes if the words "under God" are removed from the pledge? Of course not, and your argument is a silly little hissy-fit with nothing but hot air.
Conversely, do allAmericans pay a REAL price for societal and Government-enforced denial of God and Christ?
Take a look at the filth and scum around you. Need more proof? If you do, you are truly blind.
Oh, well better tell that to all the kids who are forced to recite it, they think it does. And it's not a bad assuption that it means that. They also take a lot of the other BS in it as the absolute truth.
Face it, it's a political propaganda piece. It has nothing whatsoever to do with God. In fact, his name being attached to it is probably sinful. Used to legitimize the other ideas there.
That wins, hands-down, the presumptious, myopic statement of the day.
Do you like to quibble over crumbs? Okay, I'll bite. Moral freefalls are nothing new, but the USA was founded as a Christian nation, it was established by God Himself as attested by George Washington, the pilgrims, the puritans, Ben Franklin, and many others, and it is THE FIRST COUNTRY ever founded BY THE PEOPLE and FOR THE PEOPLE. So, in that sense, our freefall is unique as we have fallen the farthest of any nation in history (save for Israel).
I must say Gargantua...your enthusiasm, faith in God, and fevor for this country are genuine, noble, and a breath of fresh air.
But my friend...we live in a time where wrong is right, evil is good, selfish, cold, give-a-$hit kind of world that only God can change. I've said it before...either a Great Depression II or the WTC*10 will change this generation.
I believe it was...but not anymore.
