Liberals have a way with words. They’ve managed to impose their own interpretation of the 1st amendment with a LIE. There is no such thing as the Separation of State and Church – there never was. It was not what the Framers wanted.
You see, American history doesn’t start with the constitution. It starts when the first settlers came to these shores fleeing religious persecution. In Europe governments had adopted specific religions and as a result anybody who didn’t practice that particular religion was subject to persecution and death.
The Framers, wiser than you can ever imagine, decided that the government was not to adopt any particular religion to avoid potential religious persecution. To avoid a repeat of what happened in Europe.
But liberals have turned this into the ‘separation’ of state and church. The keyword here, which liberals have coined, is ‘separation’.
What Framers intended was NOT the separation of State and Church – as in a divorce, for example – but rather the DISTINCTION between State and Church.
For example, we can say that there is a distinction between the soul and the body of a person. It’s two different things but both are a central part of a person. But if instead of distinguishing between your soul and your body we SEPARATE your soul from your body….well, we just KILLED you.
What the Founding Fathers intended was to distinguish between the ROLES of the government and the Church.
It’s not the role of the church to form an army, to deliver mail or to tax people.
It’s not the role of the government to establish theological doctrine.
But one nation under God is how this country was created. Church and government are not mutually exclusive.
What is the role of government? Why do we even have governments at all?
The government’s role is simple – it has TWO main reasons for its existence:
These are the only reasons why we have governments AT ALL
When the government passes laws punishing murder, it must also establish a way to impart justice to those who break the law.
What is the role of the Church?
Obviously in order to preach and speak and be free to practice your religion you must have freedom of speech.
When the government passes laws on abortion, gay marriage, etc, the Church has not only the right, by virtue of our freedom of speech, but also the OBLIGATION to speak up. After all, these are ALL ETHICAL issues. The Church’s role is to PREACH the Gospel which is filled with information about what’s RIGHT and WRONG. It’s all ETHICAL rules we follow.
And let’s face it – all the government does really is REGULATE ethics. Every single thing the government regulates IS ETHICAL.
Think about it. We have laws regulating behavior – we punish murder, theft, fraud and we regulate marriage, levels of taxation, which bathroom to use, etc. What are these if not ethical issues? And given all of these things are ethical issues, the Church has the right and the obligation to speak up.
The Church is accountable to GOD for what we do.
The government is ALSO ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD – hence ‘one nation under God’.
The Framers NEVER INTENDED TO SEPARATE GOD FROM GOVERNMENT.
America is a THEISTIC nation
It’s not a Theocracy – the Middle East is a Theocracy and we all know what’s going on over there. It’s THEISTIC. It means America BELIEVES IN GOD.
If you’re religious, don’t be afraid to speak up over ethical issues the government has at hand.
If you’re not religious, suck it up! And let the Church speak up. If you don’t, then you’re violating our freedom of speech. We have the right to oppose gay marriage and abortion. You don’t like it? Too bad.
You see, God has created you and me and Government. We’re to submit to the government and be models of civil obedience – except when the government imparts laws that are in direct conflict with God’s laws.
One nation under God means the government submits to God. Everything the government does MUST be consistent with right and wrong AS DEFINED IN SCRIPTURES, because we are a THEISTIC NATION.
Romans 13: 1-7
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed

Whenever the left fights to remove the Ten Commandments or a Christmas tree from a public building, or your children’s right to read their Bible in school, they usually refer to the separation of State and Church as the reason behind their fight.
Never mind that, instead, they’re polluting our minds with their own version of religion – atheism. Atheism, after all, is the BELIEF that there IS no God. Atheists, in other words, are BELIEVERS - they believe in SOMETHING, they just don’t believe in the same thing Christians do. They can't prove God doesn't exist any more than Christians can prove He does.
Atheists are religious people too...
The decades-long war on God Atheists have been pursuing has had terrible consequences on our society: in public schools or buildings, Evolution is in and the Bible is out; promiscuity is in and the Ten Commandments are out.
What am I saying?
I’m saying that while atheists devote their lives to condemning righteousness and everything that’s good for you, they’re also committed to promoting everything that’s wrong for you.
Evolution is just a theory, as even scientists agree – and, worst of all, it’s a theory that's never been proven and can never be proven. Nobody's ever seen a monkey evolve into a person. It’s not just a theory, it’s a ridiculous theory based on the IMAGINATION of an atheist who found it hard to believe that God had anything to do with the creation of this world.
Charles Darwin was ready to accept the evidence of creation while denying the existence of a CREATOR. As if, for example, I saw the evidence of this computer I’m using to type this blog, without recognizing the fact that someone, somewhere in Asia built it. Somebody I’ve never met built this computer whether I want to accept it or not. Similarly, somebody we’ve never met created this awesome universe…
And don’t get me started with promiscuity. Promiscuity leads to disease, depression and poverty. Women feel used, men can't find anybody to spend the rest of their lives with, gays feel awkward and rejected, and they get sick so they spend money on doctors and shrinks. There’s nothing good about promiscuity.
But, behold! Bring the Bible into the class and just wait to see how quickly they label you a bigot, a lunatic, a cross worshiper. You bet I’m a cross worshiper – what else would you worship? Miley Cyrus? Obama? Money?
But do they teach you any of this in school?
Of course not.
If they taught you anything of value in school you would know that the separation of State and Church was determined so that the government would not adopt any one particular religion. The founding of this country was based on religious liberty, so the government per se has never adopted a religion.
But did the Framers intend to forget about GOD altogether?
No. On the contrary.
The separation of State and Church does not mean the separation of State and God. It’s not what our Founding Fathers intended.
James Madison, the architect of our Constitution said this:
‘We have staked the whole future of American Civilization NOT upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to sustain ourselves, ACCORDING TO THE TEN COMMANDMENTS’
George Washington said:
'We ought to be no less persuaded that the perpetual smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that DISREGARDS ETERNAL RULE of order and Right which HEAVEN ITSELF HAS ORDAINED'.
Abraham Lincoln said:
'In regards to this great book, the Bible, I have this but to say: it is the best gift God has given to men. But for it, we would not know right from wrong’
Not only is there RIGHT and WRONG – it’s the BIBLE that tells you what’s right and what’s wrong.
And I could go on and on - but you get the picture.
Friend, our Founding Fathers never intended for the state to be separated from God. In fact, God has been the light, the inspiration and the guidance to our leaders ever since the Pilgrims landed on our shores. Given the experience of persecution that Jews and Christians have been subjected to for thousands and thousands of years, the Framers didn’t want the state to adopt any specific religion and potentally one day justify persecution. But make no mistake – God has always been a key source of guidance to our BEST leaders. Those wonderful leaders who have promoted righteousness and what is good for us have always sought God before making crucial decisions.
Separation of State and Church is another lie propagated by democrats – good governments and God are supposed to walk together.
1 Peter 2:13-17: Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
