Our Nation Under God

Promoting America as a Nation Under God, But Not a National Church as the Church of England

Refuting foreign cultures, legal precedents, languages, and religions that are in opposition to Christianity.

Introduction:   While, in this day and age, it is difficult to see the United States as a nation under God, it was once commonplace for politicians to consult their Bibles, for children to pray openly in schools, for the Bible to be taught in public schools, and for the court system to reference the Bible for guidance.[1] These times have passed. The 1960s brought rampant change to American society, and years since have struck even heavier blows to our nation’s Christian heritage. Something integral to our nation has been lost, and it must be found again if America is to endure as its founders envisioned. This discourse will primarily focus on the United State’s Christian roots by examining the beliefs and practices of its founding fathers, namely George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, among others. By examining the claims of Thomas Jefferson, in particular, we hope to shed some light on common misconceptions about the meaning of the phrase, “separation of church and state,” and its modern day implications. We will also look at the various ways our nation has fallen from its Christian heritage and how Christians can make a difference.

Letter to the Editor not published - immoral agenda of the Democrats

Greene Hollowell 2012 150A

 In the article by columnist Marc Thiessen it stated that PA State Rep. Rick Saccone declared that liberals hate America and hate God. The word ‘hate’ is pretty strong but I believe a case can be made that his statement would, in softer words, apply to a minority of American Democrats.

President Obama and his wife were certainly not thrilled about America, stating it was no longer a Christian nation. They did their best to down grade and weaken America.

The Really, Real, Roots Of America’s School Shootings

Craig Johnson | The Really Real Deal
VCA Board  Member 

Many see the ousting of God from our public schools, in the form of the banning of prayer in 1962, as the beginning of our national slide to where we are today; children being slaughtered by classmates.  Many of these same people want to see the reinstatement of prayer in schools as a first step toward healing.  If only it were that simple.

First, before they banned God from school, they banned God from the Constitution.  The neo-liberal left accomplished this by teaching in law schools, media, etc., that there are only five clauses in the First Amendment.  However, there are actually six clauses.

Americans Say We’re Generally On The “wrong Track”

2 28 18 table 1c PPT

American Culture and Faith Institute

America’s clash of worldviews is clearly portrayed in a new survey by the American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI).

It is no surprise that most adults believe the United States is not moving in the right direction. Since the 1980s, surveys evaluating such perceptions have typically found that most Americans believed the nation was “moving in the wrong direction” or was “on the wrong track.” Whether the president or the party in power has been Republican or Democrat, a majority of the public has not been satisfied with the way things were going since 2003!

Our Radicalized Media: A Clear And Present Danger

204105 5

Peggy Ryan | American Thinker

Most associate the term "radicalized" with ISIS.  But radical movements aren't limited to a religion.  A jihad is a crusade for a principle or belief involving struggle" and "resistance." 

The Washington establishment, the Deep State, and special interests have launched their own jihad, built on a battle cry to "resist."  Today, calls to "resist!" echo through Congress as half of the House and Senate stage a mutiny against a duly elected president.

CBN Probes Why Ralph Drollinger and Christian Political Leaders are Being Falsely Accused of Plotting Government Take-Over

Capitol Ministries

 

[Watch full interview]

Atheist and Liberal Accusers are Trying to Marginalize Christian Leaders and Minimize Their Influence for the Gospel.

After an exclusive interview, Jennifer Wishon, White House Correspondent for The Christian Broadcasting Network, has written a story about recent attacks by media and bloggers that accuse Ralph Drollinger of being a Christian Nationalist, one who promotes a Church-controlled government that replaces civil law.

As Drollinger is not the only Christian leader being pummeled with these attacks, Capitol Ministries thought you would want to know about these efforts to silence Christian voices. Here is Jennifer Wishon’s story. Click here to read Drollinger’s new Bible study on Christian Nationalism.

Letter to the Editor: Charity and Tax Policy, Whose Responsibility is it Anyway?

The statement that “people and families with lower incomes” will generally be hurt is untrue. Doubling the standard deduction means the first $25,200 income or so creates no taxes. The weighted average poverty thresholds for individuals and families is less than that until you reach families of four and above, which is where the increased child care credit comes into play.

Tax credits are more valuable than deductions as credits reduce the tax owed instead of income earned. They pay zero taxes both before and under the new bill.

Charitable giving should not be driven by any tax code. Christ gave the Sermon on the Mount not to the Sanhedrin, Roman Governor, nor Jewish King; but to the individuals who came to hear him.

America's First Official Annual Thanksgiving: 1619 a.d.

 “...yearly and perpetually keept...”

America's first official annual Thanksgiving was a matter of deep prayer and thankfulness

The first English-speaking observance of Thanksgiving occurred in 1619, on the site of what is now Berkeley Plantation. 

 1619 a.d, Berkeley Plantation, on Virginia's James River, about 40-miles upriver from Jamestown Island:

"Wee ordaine that the day of our ships arrivall  at the place assigned for the plantacon in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetually keept holy as a day of Thanksgiving to Almighty God"...

(35 settlers and 19 crewmen aboard the small, but seaworthy English vessel “The Good Ship Margaret”, arrived  at Berkeley Hundred on 4 Dec,  went ashore in a holy hush, knelt and began giving thanks to God for guiding and keeping them safe during their 3,000-mile voyage across the Atlantic Ocean from Bristol, England to this, their destination).

America's first official annual Thanksgiving was a matter of deep prayer and thankfulness: No feasting, no family, no watching tv sports... none of that modern-day, shallow "Good food, hot meat, Good God, let's eat!". Not bad for Virginia Company settlers supposedly motivated by greed and lust for profit. ... Actually, their prayer-actions that day were quite in keeping with the 1606 First Virginia Charter (Birth Certificate of American Civilization) with its single, written purpose  “...propagating of Christian Religion...”, which purpose was repeated both in the 1609 Second and 1612 Third Virginia Charters, and evidenced by the Cross-raising service at Cape Henry in 1607, directly-followed during the next four weeks by Cross-plantings along the James River up to the famous Christopher Newport Cross on a small island right at the Fall Line (today's Richmond).

Why are President Donald Trump’s Appointees Protecting The Clintons?

“If Hillary Clinton is not brought to justice, then America is doomed.” -Live feed

The above statement may sound over the top or extreme in many different ways, yet it is true.

History teaches us just that. Ask countries in the past who refused to bring corrupt politicians to justice and you will discover, without fail, that they were destroyed.  If you leave corrupt politicians to do what they will, without suffering the consequences of breaking the laws  (1stJohn 3-4), you will simply add strength to tyranny.

To put it into perspective, look at what President Thomas Jefferson stated:

An Open Letter To CNN – Stop Bashing Christianity

Come now, Erin, ”weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. 

 

First published in America Outloud

 Terry Beatley | Hosea Initiative

 

Dear CNN and Erin Burnett,

On your July 12th show, you chose to bash Christian pastors by calling “it very strange” that pastors would touch President Donald Trump’s shoulders as they prayed for him.

I have a message for you: You may have your big-girl CNN show, but your ignorance of 1) the Christian faith, 2) the fundamentals of American liberty, 3) the value system for which Americans must adhere to, and 4) your willingness to attack or mock Christians prove that mainstream media — with CNN out in front — is so detached from America’s Christian-Judeo foundation and the majority of the public. You are banking on the notion that the majority of your viewers will join CNN and mock God’s people.

CNN IS WRONG.

No, We Don’t Have to Put with Satanic Monuments

By Bryan Fischer

Follow Bryan on Twitter: @BryanJFischer, and on Facebook at “Focal Point” and Host of “Focal Point” on American Family Radio, 1-3pm CT, M-F  www.afr.net

The city fathers of Belle Plaine, Minnesota, are doing their best to prevent satanists from erecting the first monument to the Prince of Darkness on public land, ever.

What would have been utterly unthinkable to the Founders, and should be utterly unthinkable today in an enlightened America, is now thinkable.

The bullies from the Satanic Temple in Salem, Massachusetts, have gone halfway across the country to make trouble for a peaceful community of 6,700 people and impose their own benighted views on people who have no interest in those views and have flatly rejected them. In Veteran’s Park, next to the erection of a small monument depicting a soldier kneeling in prayer before the cross, satanists want to place a black cube with pentagrams inscribed on every visible surface. The city council doesn’t want it there.

“National Morality Cannot Prevail In Exclusion of Religious Principle” George Washington

President George Washington’s Advice to President Donald J. Trump

Terry Beatley | Hosea Initiative

First published in America Outloud

 What did President George Washington leave in his Farewell Address of 1796 that President Donald Trump should remind our nation today?

Answer:  The requirements for political prosperity.

No, not political party victory, but political prosperity to keep America free from tyranny — the cruel, unreasonable and oppressive government which arbitrarily uses power to control its citizens. President Washington knew first-hand what tyranny was like having suffered under and later fought against the tyrannical rule of King George of England.

In fact, President Washington warned that if these dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity are not heeded, Americans will lose their property, their things, their belongings. He warned that if our countrymen abandon the foundation which leads to political prosperity, citizens will lose good reputations because no internal mechanisms will be in place to prevent the slandering of our character; accusers will lie and say wicked things about us. Our first president even cautioned that if “these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens” are not observed, the protection of our lives will not be secure; our lives will be in danger. Americans are experiencing the consequences of abandoning what President George Washington implored us to not forget.

We’ve Got to Return to Biblical Foundations in This Country

Words have meaning

Sam Rohrer  | LifeZette

 “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). 

As I drove up to the stoplight, the Christian radio program I was listening to started to mix with large amounts of “digital hash” interference. It reminded me that two different technologies were converging at the intersection: The AC electrical signal (lights) and the digital computer signal (controls) were in conflict until one was made to serve the other.

The life-and-death cultural conflict going on in American society and around the world is sort of like that.
