Are We a Christian Nation?

Are we a Christian nation? Obama doesn’t seem to think so. At a press conference in Turkey, Obama proclaimed “…we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.” And what are those ideals and values rooted in, Mr. President? Christianity, of course.

The first line of the Declaration of Independence reads “…When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

The second line of the Declaration of Independence reads “…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. “

The last line of the Declaration of Independence reads “…And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

The 1st Amendment of the Constitution of the United States reads “…Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

The first line of the first amendment of the Constitution of the United States established freedom of religion. It wasn’t an afterthought. Religious freedom was the cornerstone of the new Republic. And because of the wisdom of our founders, because they sought freedom of and not freedom from religion, we can practice the religion of our choice (or choose to practice no religion at all) without fear of punishment or recrimination. Or can we?

Today, anti-American groups, atheists, non-Christians, or just about anybody with an ax to grind with God, Christianity, or organized religion in general are working feverishly to deny or destroy our religious freedoms. They often use “separation of church and state” as justification for their anti-Christian zealotry. Separation of church and state does not exist, it is a myth. I have written about the “Wall of Separation” in a previous post. The use of the phrase “separation of church and state” only emphasizes one’s ignorance of the history of our country and the founding of our nation.

Ordinary men living in extraordinary times with nothing but their faith in God and a thirst for freedom founded this country. Today, we are faced with a similar challenge. Our history, our heritage, our religion, our very freedom…everything that has made this country unique in the world, everything that has made this country great, is being ripped away. In 1787 when the Constitutional Convention ended, Benjamin Franklin was asked if we had a monarchy or a republic. Franklin replied, “ A republic, if you can keep it.” That is our challenge today, to keep our republic. If with nothing left but our faith in God and our thirst for freedom, we will keep it. -Lew-

The constitutional freedom of religion [is] the most inalienable and sacred of all human rights.” –Thomas Jefferson: Virginia Board of Visitors Minutes, 1819. ME 19:416

    Franklin Graham’s Warning !

    Franklin’s warning of coming persecution of Christians echoes what his mother Ruth and father Billy have clearly stated. Re Ruth, see search engines including Google for “Letter from Mrs. Billy Graham.” To see what Billy has written, Google “Famous Rapture Watchers – Addendum.”
    Since Franklin blamed the Obama administration for his own National Day of Prayer snub and persecution, and since he accused “Christian” Obama of “giving Islam a pass,” readers can get some rare insights into Obama and his fellow travelers by Yahooing and Googling “Obama Supports Public Depravity,” “Obama Avoids Bible Verses,” “Separation of Raunch and State,” and “David Letterman’s Hate, Etc.”
    To see some exceptional in-depth studies of coming persecution, see two unique books by media figure Joe Ortiz entitled “The End Times Passover” and “Why Christians Will Suffer ‘Great Tribulation’ ” – both published in the US and UK by AuthorHouse.
