- Christians - Beware The Fox In The Hen House
- Separation of Church and State has been
a very lucrative business for the ACLU and AU (Americans United for the
Separation of Church and State) for over a half century. They prowl the
country looking for the right chicken to pluck.
- Only someone who has put their brain on idle for the
past 25 years can deny the attack on Christianity in this country is (1)
real and in your face, and (2) a serious and constant war to wear down
the American people. Get rid of the Ten Commandment anywhere in public!
Why rot the minds of members of Congress and other elected offices with
God's commandments: no lying, stealing, adultery, or murder (abortion).
Useful fools throughout this country are increasingly taking to protecting
the barbaric, totalitarian system called Islam masquerading as a religion,
while accepting the massive assault on Christianity.
- Funny thing, though, history doesn't back up all the
blathering by those who work so hard to shut out God in America. Take for
instance The New
England Primer of 1777:
- "In the early colonial period, reading the Bible
was the primary reason and motivation for learning to read. For example,
in 1647, the "Old Deluder Act" was passed by the Massachusetts
General Court required every township with 50 or more families to hire
a teacher. Similar legislation quickly spread to the other New England
colonies, being the first step towards compulsory education. The preamble
was explicit that knowledge of the Scriptures was the chief goal, and that
"one chief project of that old deluder, Satan, [is] to keep men from
the knowledge of the Scriptures" (see text with original spelling
and typesetting represented in Ford,
and an modernized spelling rendering of the text is found here).
Illiterate people were at the mercy of other people for their knowledge
of God and His Word, and inaccessibility to the Bible had fomented centuries
of darkness prior to the Reformation. Indeed the appearance of early primers
in England has been connected directly to the beginning of the Reformation.
Only literate people could have the privilege of direct, independent access
to God's revelation.
- "This connection and between learning the alphabet
and learning Scripture and doctrine is pervasive in The New England Primer.
And the concern that children come to know Christ as Savior and Lord is
obvious. By the modern taste, specific language in the Primer is frequently
termed stern and morbid. Our modern culture tries to avoid the recognition
of death. But to the colonial culture, where death was ever present, the
reality of coming to know Christ before one's demise was of urgent concern.
The truth spoken in verses such as "As runs the Glass our life does
pass" (for letter 'G') is irrefutable--albeit unpopular.
- "The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says:
- Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment
of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the
freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably
to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
- Schools throughout the country, as well as counties
and local municipalities, have been under attack for decades by threats
of lawsuits or actual lawsuits by the ACLU and the AU for even whispering
the word God. All based on the First Amendment.
