I received the following comment from a reader that needs to be posted: Begin Quote:
I was reared on the fact that this was a Christian Nation.
My grandfather was a circuit riding minister in the Oklahoma Territory
for the United Brethren in the early 1900’s. My great grandfather started
the Sunday School paper for the church.
My father was a Church of the Nazarene pastor from college days forward.
He told me he had been brainwashed by the church after he retired and I
started sending him Berean Bible Society literature.
The reason I was writing is what broke me from believing that this
was a Christian nation or anything belong to it was not the work of
Satan was when studying the Scripture – I read Matthew 4:8.
Kingdom and Nation are one in the same. And, I had heard these verses
all my life, but it hadn’t sunk in – because we were brainwashed to
believe that we were fine. All laws were God given laws (no they are not)
And I came to see that Jesus wants us to depend on HIM totally for all things.
The reason the Communist does not like Christianity — you will have two
masters. Bow down to one – and not to what Jesus tells us to do –
One of the leaders of China says that Christians have to do what he says
do when he says do it. And Christian won’t do what he says do — so they
must be destroyed.
If what I am feeling in my soul, I either become an activist for the Lord Jesus
Christ, or I am denying that Jesus exists.
I have been an activist for a long time. Teaching atheists what the Bible really
says. End Quote.
Here’s my response:
I’m glad you brought up Matthew 4:8 KJV. Amen! I’ve always taken this scripture with 2 Corinthians 4:4 & Ephesians 2:2 KJV etc. to prove scriptural evidence along with the obvious evil we see daily unfolding daily in a country “supposedly ” established as a nation under God. It’s a mockery before God I believe. In fact – because of mockery- last year I removed my license plates that had” One Nation Under God” and replaced them with secular plates. I was immediately at peace afterward.
More proof God did NOT inspire the U.S. Constitution
