When I look at America today and see the mess it’s in, I can’t help but blame Christians and not the liberals. Yes, you may be shocked and outraged by my statement, but allow me to explain.
Since the 1960s when the Supreme Court started ruling against God, the Bible, prayer, Jesus and anything Christian, too many Christians removed themselves from doing anything to stop or reverse what was happening. Politics is known as a dirty profession and many Christians believed that no Christian should get involved in politics because of it. Others mistook the biblical teaching of not being part of this world. They have the attitude that God is in control and He’ll work everything out.
That folks, is a Christian cop-out that really says that Christians are too lazy or too afraid to stand up in the world and make a difference. Let me ask you this, if Moses had the attitude that God was in charge and He would work everything out, he wouldn’t have faced the possibility of death by confronting Pharaoh and Jews would still be slaves in Egypt. If Joshua had that same attitude, he never would have led the armies that conquered the Promise Land for God’s people.
You could go through the entire Bible and find instance after instance where someone could have not taken the action that God wanted them to take, by saying, He’s in control and everything will work out.
Better yet, what about our Founding Fathers? What if they had taken the attitude that God will deal with the British because He’s in control and will work everything out? Had they had the attitude of many of today’s Christians, we would still be singing God Save the Queen, our flag would have a union jack in place of the stars, we would be driving on the wrong side of the road and our money would make no sense whatsoever.
In the 2012 election, I can’t tell you how many Christians told me that they weren’t voting because they could not endorse Romney because he’s a Mormon or Obama because he’s, well, I can’t say he’s a Muslim, but he seems to act more like one than he does a Christian. Other Christians say that we are not be part of the world and that since God is in control, it doesn’t matter how they vote. If several million other Christians refused to vote for the same reasons, then they very well could be responsible for allowing Obama to be re-elected and continue his attack on Christianity.

What part of the first amendment do you not understand? Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
This is known as the separation of church and state. It ensures that we the people are not forced to follow any religion against our will. There is a reason why we are a constitutional republic and not a Christian Theocracy. Our government is not supposed to favor one religion over another. That is the beauty and freedom of being an American.
All of our laws are based on Judeo-Christian principles, read the Federalist papers and the writing of the Founding Fathers. Separation of Church and State is not in the Constitution, the phrase you quoted prohibited government from being the religion – like the Founders left in England. We prayed in schools for over 150 years, but then suddenly it is unconstitutional? The 10 commandments were posted in court houses and schools for over 150 years, but suddenly they are unconstitutional?
In order for people to turn their lives over to government, they had to be forced away from God. Today freedom is limited if the government doesn’t approve. Government is creating rights when the Declaration of Independence clearly states our Creator endowed us with certain unalienable Rights. Whatever “rights” government grants it can also take away. People just lost the right to catastrophic only health insurance because the government doesn’t approve.
So, how do you explain that what Americans did since the 1700’s suddenly became illegal in the 1960’s?
When the Muslims have immigrated into our country like they have in Europe (Sweden and the UK) then we will see the persecution of Christians in the name of Allah like we have never seen before. Remember what Jesus told us in John 16:2, “They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service”
