I was sent an email that snopes.com says is somewhat messed up but I couldn’t argue with the logic of the second part of it. It seems our Nation is divorcing God. Some believe we did that when our Constitution didn’t acknowledge His Kingship over this Country. I am not so sure I hold to that extreme position but in a previous discussion I was told that my ideas and morals (which I know were foundational in this Country) are outdated and that we live in a different era. I had decried how homosexuality was perverse on facebook and to my amazement I found out that my Bible and my morals are now considered perversion according to one of my liberal friends.
So when I read the message below I thought it was applicable. The basis for why we do what we do culturally as a Nation has a foundation. Remove that foundation and we will have no reason for what we do or why we do the things we do. We obviously have been taking these things for granted every day, week, month, and year. The following comment illustrates where we are headed in my estimation if we don’t experience a revival of truth and love for God in our Nation. .
Here is a portion of the email that I found fascinating with some changes and editing that I have done. It was supposedly compiled from Governor Lepage’s comments which Snopes disputes.
THE LAW IS THE LAW!
“THE LAW IS THE LAW So “if” the US government determines that it is against the law for the words “under God” to be on our money, then, so be it.
And “if” that same government decides that the “Ten Commandments” are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.
I say, “so be it,” because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen
I say, “so be it,” because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.
I would like to think that those people have the American public’s best interests at heart.
Since we can’t pray to God, can’t Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don’t believe Government (Federal, State and Local) and its employees should participate in Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.
I’d like my mail delivered on Saturdays, Sundays, Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all they are just another day.
I’d like the” US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays.” After all they are just another day.
I’d like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the “Christmas Break.” After all it’s just another day.
I’m thinking a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter at normal hourly pay. It shouldn’t cost any overtime since those days would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be “politically correct.”
In fact….I think our government should work on Sundays with normal pay (AFTER ALL, It was initially set aside for worshiping God) because, AFTER ALL, our government will end up saying it is just ANOTHER DAY.
Eight years ago I wouldn’t have thought it possible that marriage could be redefined and homosexuality sanctioned by our Nations law makers. Twenty years ago it was unthinkable in my mind. So maybe a 7 day work week isn’t that far off. The Blue Laws are being removed state by state and we are seeking a better economy, aren’t we? What better way to get more work done than remove those pesky religious days for the sake of productivity. Think I am off base on this one? I was obviously off base thinking that homosexuality wouldn’t be sanctioned in America. I worked 7 days a week 12 hours a day when I was at sea in the U. S. Navy. I guess time will tell.
As a sidenote please know that I don’t hate homosexuals. I do believe that homosexual sin is more of an abomination according to the scriptures than other kinds of sin. I also know that all men are capable of repentance and being redeemed by Messiah the Prince if He is willing to set them free. And He knows how to save sinners and reconcile them to God.
Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
2Ch 7:14 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.
.Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
