June 25, 1962- Prayer expelled from public schools
In the year 1962 a revolt against Christianity put prayer on trial in the Supreme Court. The verdict was cast that prayer in school was the equivalent of establishing a national religion and violated the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
I’m sorry government but freedom of religion doesn’t mean that we cannot have a set religion. Christianity is the rock upon which this nation was founded. According to the First Amendment, all other religions have the right to exist unmolested beside Christianity.
1973- Legalized abortion
Murder has been legal in the United States of America for the past 42 years. In the trail between Roe and Wade, abortion, the power of life and death was officially decided by mankind. God was removed from choice, from conscience, and from human life. At least in our minds, God was no longer in charge.
1980- All religious displays banned from public schools
No more crosses, no more Bibles, no more tracks, no more talking about God. Public schools seem destined to become a playground for all evil. Isolating children from all moral obligation and knowledge of right or wrong is setting them on the path to what we now have today: kids that act like animals. But it doesn’t stop there.
2005- Ten Commandments taken out of courtrooms
Technically not all of the Commandments were barred, only the first four or five. Anything to do with God and His laws is now gone from our judging halls. When we disregard God in our laws, we become lawless and Godless. Now we come to present day .
2015- God taken out of marraige
When God is removed from marraige, we die. America, as a nation cannot stand without some moral framework. We have removed God from our schools, our judicial system, our government, and the institution of marriage. Every major faction of the United States has been polluted by moral degradation.
Notice the trend, every decision in each of these instances was made by the Supreme Court. And, I might add that Constitutionally, they had no right to redefine the institution of marriage. The court to which all power and authority is given in this country, has single handedly expelled God from anything and everything that they have touched.
We have lost sight of where this nation began, why it has lasted through the years, and why it is great. Without a solid foundation, the building, or in this case the nation, crumbles and falls. If we keep treating God as if He doesn’t exist, we will keep living like animals. Right and wrong are not a game, they are not fantasies, and they will always be as they always have been. God did not change through the years, we did. If we have a prayer of survival, it is His mercy when we repent and turn once again to Him.
I know this verse is overused, but it still rings true.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
-2 Chronicles 7:14
There’s your solution, there is the answer to our nation’s problems. Pray, seek His face, turn back to God again in America and we will once again be the greatest nation on earth.
As always, thanks for reading and Happy Monday!
