Anyone who has a basic knowledge of American history knows that our country’s foundation is Christian. What our founders meant by freedom of religion was the freedom to worship the Lord Jesus Christ according to one’s understanding of the scriptures. Freedom of religion was to keep the state (federal government) out of the affairs of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. It was not meant to keep the Church out of public affairs. It certainly did not mean that we recognize other gods as equal alternatives to the Lord Jesus Christ. Allah is not god; nor is Buddha.
Today, America is post-Christian. The state is now the new tyrant god that exists for the sake of its own power. President Obama is our dictator who makes decrees (laws) and selectively enforces them depending on whether you are friend or foe. The Constitution is a distant memory made into suggestions rather than the highest law of the land. Laws that were meant to protect individual liberties have been turned on their head.
What is the solution to turning this rapid decline? It is for the leaders of the Church to first repent and then to rediscover our foundations (our ancient landmarks). It is possible to look at original documents and discover America’s true Christian heritage. The pastors/elders of America if it is to survive need to speak to all aspects of life and bring them into submission to the Lord Jesus Christ.
I want to end with a scripture verse where it is very easy to see the model for our form of government. Our Constitution provides for three coequal branches of government.
22 For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us.
Any honest person reading this scripture can see the Judicial, Legislative, and Executive branches of our federal government found in the description of the Lord in this verse.
Our founding documents have as their foundation the Holy Bible. It well past time that the preachers of the Word proclaim this truth and stand against the preachers of secular humanism.
