Where are we headed spiritually?

From page C3 | February 02, 2014 |

Regardless of what any public or private figure says, America was founded on Christian principles.

Study pure and unfiltered history and you will find a wealth of Christianity in the very founding of our nation. Our forefathers, even in writing the Constitution stated the words: Creator and God several times. For anyone to believe otherwise, they are just not aware our national history.

If you were permitted (which you are no longer allowed) to go to the Capitol, you will find there are two statues for each state in the union.  These are statues to two key men for every state in the union who have had a major impact on its founding. There were several religious leaders who were recognized.  The very first church founded in Washington, D.C., met in the Capitol building where the president, the senators and congressmen attended each Sunday.

Washington, D.C., contrary to popular belief, was laid out in the form of the cross to recognize Christ who blessed the founders of this great country.

There has been for years a sanitizing of God out of America. This plot to remove God was insidious at first when Madelein Murray O’Hare had God and prayer thrown out of our public schools. History clearly shows us this was the worst mistake our school system has ever made.

Gradually the introduction of evolution in every area of society from the schools to even the entertainment industry began to shape people’s minds away from God as the Creator. All of this has been a slow meticulous effort by atheistic people who purposely wanted to destroy the cause of Christ.

Right now the quiet attack on God has become vocal. There is no more quiet agenda, it is now all out warfare. Recently as six year ago in Southern California, a student read a one-minute paper regarding the significance of Christmas and her teacher stopped her.  The school, for violating separation of church and state, disciplined her. When a person gives their convictions about the home and the family, the homosexual community becomes vociferous in their attacks. However, they expect everyone to accept their views as freedom of speech under the guise of civil rights.

The current trend of this nation is turning their back on God and letting a president stand in the public arena and say we are not a Christian nation. Well, respectively, Mr. President, you are wrong and the facts of American history prove your comments wrong. There is growing attack on churches, Christians who carry their Bibles to work to be read on their breaks or lunch and even the Christian school movement.  Hollywood hates Christianity because the lifestyle of most actors is anything but biblical.

It seems to me that during an economic downturn like we are suffering right now, people would turn to God in droves. God has shown them their trust in money can be shattered because there is no certainty in finances. We need people in this community to say what Joshua of old said, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

It is time we stop playing with God, stop playing church, and get serious about the things of God.  In II Chron. 7:14, God calls for a national revival.  I say rather than removing God from America, we should reinstate God in His rightful place in this country.

To be sure there should be religious freedom for a man to worship God as He sees fit. This means we are to permit every man to make his spiritual choices. May God help us to turn back to God?

    There is so much factually wrong here. God is not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution. Washington DC is not in the shape of a cross, and certainly wasn't designed that way by L'Enfant! Evolution is a science theory, not a conspiracy theory.

    Agree....In General Google...masonic design of washington dc......See....Washington D.C. and Masonic/Luciferic Symbology - The Forbidden ... ....... As of now the United States is acting as THE ENFORCER of the New World Order Agenda....but this Agenda is being driven by the Hidden Hand of European Luciferian Illunminati Rothschild and Rockefeller Banking Interests, ( which control the Federal Reserve and the key positions in the Executive, Legislative, Supreme Court, and major Corporate players, also the Military/Industrial Complex)... which probably cover for another even Darker Supreme layer, that will eventually betray the Rothschilds.....something even more powerful on a worldwide level.....The United States will fall, be punished as the current Enforcer of the Babylon the Great World wide Beast System...question who will take over after the Us has it's fall?
