Skip to comments.Not a Nation of Christians?(Closed for Good Friday)

Mr. Obama remarked in Turkey: We consider ourselves citizena... We are not a nation of Christians(paraphrased)
Then how is it we celebrate Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, Thanksgiving and Easter, as a Nation, of "citizens" or just citizens?
Wouldn't there be a prerequisite of Judeo Christian values rooted in Christianity to give foundation of belief that would cause our most important documents to recognize a higher being. To quote verbatim scripture, form the Bible and put it in documents, in buildings and on statues? Why would a non Christian Nation do that?
Why would we have National holidays that close government offices, financial institutions and stop the mail? If not for the fact that "We are a Christian Nation"?.
Mr. Obama wants to create a new international identity and relationship for us moving forward that erodes our uniqueness in the world as a Christian Nation.
Ergo the following clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIVd7YT0oWA&feature=related
Please, this weekend, pray for our Nation and that God will provide us an opportunity to roll back this chump, his advisors and several members of Congress in 2010/2012.
To my Jewish friends, have a good Passover.
To my Christian Brothers and Sisters, celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and know that "All things work for the Glory of God".
Happy Easter to all Americans and "Citizens of the Body of Christ".
Stock markets are closed today because of Good Friday. Gee whiz those guys ought to be at work since we are not a Christian nation?
My oldest Son is having his First Communion tomorrow. Obama might not think that isn’t a big deal, but it is to us..
In the Protestant South, Good Friday was ignored. We celebrated Easter Monday.
Speaking of money, if this is not a Judeo Christian nation, why does our money say “in God we Trust”?
It doesnt say in Allah we trust.
Christians Never the less.
Sadly, although we are a “Christian nation” founded on Christian principles, it is becoming more and more apparent that this is NOT a nation of Christians.
Our leader certainly IS NOT a Christian. I can certainly say this based upon the things is does and the things that come out of his mouth on a daily basis.
“Then how is it we celebrate Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, Thanksgiving and Easter, as a Nation, of “citizens” or just citizens?”
Uh-oh... the cat’s out of the proverbial bag now. Barry will now see to it all those are duly replaced by their muslim counterparts.
Is Christmas cancelled this year? Does anybody know?
Here in central Missouri, in our small town’s school district, they build Spring Break around Easter. The children are out of school for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Monday.
Why can't Mennonites, Mormons and Quakers be more like them? Because our God is a gentleman and father that says “You may come to me by knocking at the door”(paraphrase).
The difference is a relationship with the True God, who is just and wants to hold to his bosom and you come to him of your own free will. No coercion, no threat.
Contrast that with a religion that exhorts followers in despicable acts of subjugating others.
In my part of the South, all Christians (except Eastern Orthodox) will be celebrating Easter next Sunday. I didn't notice anyone celebrating it last Monday. But maybe I was just inattentive.
I would, as your friend, respectfully, disagree. We are a Nation of Christian majority.
Practicing? Walking Daily as a witness? Perfect?
Maybe not, and that is why we need God and Jesus Christ for Grace and Salvation.
Who among us decides the degree of righteousness? It ain’t gonna be me. I am a terrible judge as, probably, we all are.
Let’s just pray this weekend and put our faith in God.
Well, we’re not a “Christian nation” actually. While we may be a nation that has some Christians in it, it’s not a “Christian nation”.
This nation can’t be a Christian nation and at the same time support, legally, the killing of 43 million babies in the last several decades. The two don’t go together.
But, it can be a nation where there is a minority of Christians who still live here.
AND, yes..., in the past, when the nation was founded, it could be called a Christian nation in terms of what the nation did “corporately speaking”. Not now, though....
I really didn't want to nor think it fair to trust innuendo and hearsay as to the fact of whether or not Obama is a Christian. But now I have my answer..... coming from the one's very own mouth. He said "WE" meaning he and all the others he lumps in with himself. This is his picture of America based on his and his friend's positions, that they are NOT Christians.
Why then should he look any further for a DC church? Not only is he NOT a Christian..... but he is hypocritical as well! And all those DC churches that are ready to make him a member should he grace their halls with his presence, well, I have a bit of doubt as to their Christianity as well.
Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
The Poseur of the United States "Claims" we are not a Christian Nation.
That's President to you. And he's right on this. I'll tell him when I think he's wrong - but on this, he is 100% right.
We have a National Cathedral and I think there is a church inside every Sunday.
Any Church would consider it an honor to have the President of the United States in attendance.
The President would also be honored to attend and pray with fellow Christians.
On this most important Holiday and Celebration of the Resurrection, you would think there would have been announcement indicating where Obama would celebrate Jesus Christ's Resurrection.
The message of God's gift of Salvation would be implicit. All Obama would have to is waive a bible around as he exits church.
You would, as President, find a church and lead by example of attendance. That would indicate leadership, faith, hope and unity of Christian belief.
We are slowly losing our identity as a Christian nation because of the all-out assault on Christian values that has come from the media, the courts and our centers of learning over the past 40 years.
While Christianity is still alive and well, it is increasingly difficult to show it in public. The left has done a very good job of making anyone who dares to profess their love of Jesus Christ feel embarrassed and ashamed.
It won’t be long before the only way you will be able to show your faith is within church walls or the privacy of your home. Outwardly, we will be no different than an athiestic Soviet Union or North Korea.
An amazing fall, considering that this nation was founded on Christian principles.
It is true that many practice “Situational Morality”.
Still, all of have fallen short of the Glory of God and that is why we become Christians. God doesn't waive a magic wand and give us the ability and consciousness of righteousness and to always act accordingly.
He does give us free will and a conscience and that all actions have a consequence.
In other words we don't suddenly become perfect. If we were, why would we be stuck on this rock?
God gives us a salvation of our own volition. Whether we choose to act as Saul or convert ourselves into Paul is up to us.
Doesn’t make one less of a Christian but less of a person.
BTW, are you near Midwest or closer to Tulsa? I forgot.
