The Separation of Church and State



Much  has been said in today's world about separation of church and state.  But did you know that phrase cannot be found in the Constitution written by our America's founders?  In the Congressional Record from June 7th to September 25th, the conversation is recorded of our Founders as they drafted the 1st Amendment, and not one word is mentioned about separating church and state!  This thought really concerns me!  Does it you?? 
         
This message is long and because of that some will delete it..  I pray enough will not only read it, but take it to heart..  and like me become angry enough to start fighting Christians world wide taking a stand to recapture the spoils satan has taken from us.  That stand begins with looking at what our Founders actually wrote in our constitution.. not how the supreme court interprets it.  Please read what our Founders have to say about God.
                                                                    
Founder John Adams.. "The general principles on which the founders achieved independence were the general principals of Christianity," Founder Noah Webster ..  "The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and His Apostles.  This is genuine Christianity and to this we owe our free constitutions of government."  Listen to the words of Founder Patrick Henry. As true today as then .. "Whether this {new government} will prove a blessing or a curse will depend upon the use our people make of the blessings which a gracious God hath bestowed on us.  If they are wise, they will be great and happy. If they are of a contrary character, they will be miserable.  Righteousness alone can exalt them as a nation (Proverbs 14:34)  Reader!  Whoever thou art, remember this, and in thy sphere practice virtue thyself, and encourage it in others."                      

We have long ago forgotten the warning given to us by Founder Thomas Jefferson  ..  "Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?  That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?  Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Have you started questioning yet.. where the idea of separation and state has came from?  Listen to the words of Founder James Madison  ..  "Before any man can be considered as a member of civil society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the universe.  And to the same Divine Author of every good and perfect gift (James1:17) we are indebted for all those privileges and advantages, religious as well as civil, which are so richly enjoyed in this land."    James 1:17: "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."

I don't know how the following will affect you.. but it made me angry.. Holy Spirit type anger.  I no longer am willing to sit and let the devil's spawns destroy this country I love!!  Listen..  Benjamin Rush who was one of the first to call for free public schools said.. " Let the children be carefully instructed in the principles and obligations of the Christian religion.  This is the most essential part of education.  The great enemy of the salvation of man, in my opinion, never invented a more effectual means of extricating {removing} Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind that it was improper to read the Bible at schools."

And this cinched my determination to act  ..  One of the signers of the constitution and an original  Supreme Court Justice stated..   "Human law must rest is authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine.  Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants.  Indeed these two sciences run into each other."

The modern day phrase separation of church and state has come about from ignoring these words...No not words, but warnings of those who fought and died for, the independence of the greatest nation on earth, AMERICA!  Forgive me, Father, for being so indifferent that I did not stand up and fight against
the evil that is an active presence constantly looking for an in road to destroy our foundations. Oh Father, we have forgotten truth has tremendous force, and Your word which is the basis for all truth says in Psalm 11:3  ..  "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" 

I listened to the voices of gloom and doom tell me there was nothing I could do to stop a devil's spawn from taking prayer out of school.  And that was the beginning of the down hill spiral for our country.  I only voiced weak protests when the "educated and enlightened leaders" decided parents were doing a poor job at teaching sex education, so they took that right away, too.  As a reward for that lost right free clinics sprouted up to treat sexually transmitted diseases and we lost our right to be informed... We still didn't learn what happens when we allow permissiveness to take over.. and now instead of the simple diseases of the past that could be treated and cured..we worry about our loved ones dying from aids.....

Because our schools could no longer teach Christian values. they taught sex education without talking about responsibility, God ordained virginity, or abstinence and we found as our reward, an epidemic of teens becoming pregnant.  So we lost our right to decide about birth control and as our reward clinics sprung up where our teens can get birth control without our knowledge, and the concept of abstinence is laughed out as impractical..because our culture has adopted the philosophy .. "If it feels good.. Do it!" and the concept  .. It's my life and my right to choose!  We still closed our ears and eyes to the erosion of God from our lives and as a reward of that, unwed adults and children were becoming pregnant in epidemic figures and we allowed the laws to be changed.  Abortion clinics where our daughters/spouses can take the life of an innocent  child without our consent and in  many instances - our knowledge, are a common site in our cities.                     

We allowed the experts to convince us living in an unhappy marriage was bad for us.. so we allowed the laws to change and we now have no fault divorces.  As our reward we have children growing up without the influence of both parents present in their lives except when visitation schedules allow.  Couples are taking the easy way out and allowing a divorce decree to end their marriage that God ordained as forever until death due us part.  And since marriage is no longer sacred we just live together refusing to believe it is sinful.  We close our eyes and buy into the common thought this is better until we know if we are compatible!

Our schools cannot teach how God made man, and the Ten Commandments that tells us to love and respect each other .. or espousing the Golden rule as a measure for behavior.  Yet they can teach our children they evolved from animals and when our children act like animals.. they throw it back on the parents and the home life.  Have I made you angry enough yet???   I pray so.

Historians William Strauss and Neil Howe in their book, The Fourth Turning, contend that our society has been unraveling since 1964.  Their contention is this unraveling will stop when a crisis large enough has occurred that forces people to focus on and re-establish values and beliefs that have been abandoned.  When our culture is soundly planted on a solid foundation, new laws are not needed.  When our culture is like it is today laws make no difference.   When will we learn?  How much more will we endure before we decide..the only way to stop this is to demand that we are given what our Founding Fathers guaranteed us in OUR Constitution .....God and His word in all areas of our lives!                                                          
Founder George Washington reminds us.. "No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States..  We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious (favorable) smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation which disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself ordained." President John Adams said, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.  Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.   It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other!"

On which side will you stand?  Will you join in starting a massive grass root Christian movement? To work non stop to save America from satan, and return it to a higher standard of responsible behavior based on the word of God??  In every level of our society ..in all branches and levels of our government, our schools, our churches, our neighborhoods, our homes, and most of all in our individual lives! Let's take back America, so those lives lost fighting for it's freedom will not have been in vain.   God gave us the perfect plan of success in Hebrews 12:1-3.......   "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds."

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.  Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the
cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Today the world is full of darkness and evil.. but just as a sunflower opens to face the sun....if God's people will open their eyes and look to God ... then and only then will we reflect His glory.  We can then receive the full impact of the light of God's countenance upon us, and we will reflect His character and His love!  Then we will shine like beacons in this troubled world.  No longer will we allow our light to remain hidden, but those in need and those searching for the truth will recognize the Spirit of Love living within us and will follow His light shining through us!

"For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed." - Isaiah 50:7

Psalm 33:12: "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance."
