Separation of Church and State Round 1And now off we go to the races!
I live in central Oklahoma and there is a serious yet stupid controversy centered around the issue of separation of Church and State that has found its way onto the national news scene. I'm sure that the vast majority of you have heard about it. It is after all old news by this time, but nonetheless relevant from now until the end of time.
There is a monument outside the Oklahoma State Capitol building that has been there since 2012. It is a symbol which has been the cornerstone of which the United States of America was built upon. It is a concept in which our very laws are based upon. It is the very essence of everything that is good, noble and moral in this entire world. It is a monument of the Ten Commandments!
The way I see it is things have really gotten out of hand with this separation of Church and State issue. Here's the deal people! The United States was founded by God fearing people. When the Constitution was penned and the issue of the separation of Church and State was addressed, they were referring to God's Church! And the Christian religion! That's right people the forefathers who founded this country and stole it from the Native Americans were God fearing Christians!
Now that sounds pretty messed up these Christian people stealing the country from the natives, but I refer you to God's word where he had his chosen people kill entire bands of people and take their lands from them or even when he had another nation attack and enslave his chosen people. I'm not meaning to imply that God ordained this to happen. It was just the greed of the Europeans of the time that forged this country into the great nation it has become.
Back on point; The United States is a Christian country, founded upon Christian principles whose laws are based upon the Ten Commandments! Those of other faiths are more than welcome to live here and practice their own faith so long as it doesn't interfere with our basic principles. But once we start allowing outside faiths and what's much worse... satanists to dictate to us, it leaves every God fearing man, woman and child in this country open and vulnerable to attack from the powers and principalities of evil! And whether or not you want to believe it, these forces are steadily at work. They have been at work since long before man first walked this earth. And they shall be until our Savior delivers us from them! Make no mistake! The worst form of evil is that which is emulating good. That is to say, beware of wolves in sheep's clothing!
Worry not so much about the ignorant people playing at satanism, but worry more about the truly evil ones which you can not discern. This is where you need to turn to the Lord and pray for the power of discernment. For only through this power will you be able to recognize evil in its many forms. It sneaks up on you in the form of friends having a good time. It saturates your mind in the form of entertainment designed to twist your mind into thinking that God is nothing more than a character in a book and that the book is no more than a story told to children to make them behave. OH PEOPLE! Just wait! I have only just begun to open up a HUGE can of worms! This is barely scratching the surface of the journey I plan to take you on. Don't sweat my grammar! And don't try to pick my story apart for other reasons. Just take the point I'm making. I know when I end a sentence with a preposition. I also know I'm not the most intelligent person, and that I'm not the best writer and will tend to get things messed up a bit. And I could care less. I have much, much bigger fish to fry! So focus on the points I'm making whether you agree with me or not. That is why this blog is open to comments and other perspectives. I shall also invite other bloggers whose views parallel mine as well as those who clash with mine to post here from time to time. I take responsibility for my own words and will expect any guest bloggers to do the same.
Thank you for bearing with me, and hang around to see where this leads.
