Yes, Christmas and Christianity are definitely under fire from rabid secularists in our culture. But there are many victories over these attack, too, and this CitizenLink report outlines some of them. Important, too, is the fact that sometimes all it takes for a victory is simply to educate good people who have been misled about our history, our Constitution, and what is right.
All law and lawmaking is "religious" in the sense that it derives its authority to act from something outside of -- above -- itself. In this country, that "something" that our law is based on is the Bible. This is clearly apparent not only in the text of the Declaration of Independence, but it is also demonstrated in the texts of our earliest covenants, constitutions, law-codes, compacts and charters.
For years now, many of us have been warning America that freedoms of religion, speech, conscience and association and homosexual “rights” cannot coexist; they are by nature mutually exclusive. This is becoming clearer by the minute, as the radical homosexual movement has taken super flight under the ever-darkening reign of the pro-homosexual Barack Obama (or whatever his name is).
The Christmas season is once again upon us and with it overwhelming encouragement from Madison Avenue to spend what we have not earned to buy what we cannot afford. The day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday (indicating the point at which retailers are in the black—or at least hope to be), signaled the start of the “holiday shopping season.” That very phrase reveals the commercialized emphasis that has come to define Christmas for many Americans.
The laws have already turned against religious freedom in America, although mostly against Christianity and, interestingly, least against Islam. Accepting a pre-sanctioned reality means I don't have to waste my time thinking about or through any subject. I just accept the status quo.
When I read "Congress Declares Christianity America’s Religion" at the Right Side, I knew I had read that before. Then I remembered. I read it a few years ago in The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States, written by Benjamin Franklin Morris in 1864. Rather than finding that government should be divorced from the Christian worldview, the congressional investigation found exactly the opposite: our government rests upon God's truth.
Many people who don't know better (and some who do) say the Bible is full of errors and can't be relied on historically and scientifically, much less for our eternal destiny. What many of these people (and many more) don't understand is that you will never find a book with more ancient manuscripts closer to its original age, with fewer copying errors--ANYWHERE.
Well, here we go kid-do’s… After the majority of Americans concluded their“godless” Thanksgiving without Almighty God and ALL the realities of Who He is, which is dictated by His Holy Word it is “Black Friday”. America’s Thanksgiving and Holiday season now consists of thanking their god’s of self narcissism, human efforts and personal ambitions, while of course eating, drinking and watching football.
My dear friends in light of our nation's godlessness, abounding moral relativistic thinking and secularism there is still a remnant throughout this nation today that still chooses to follow Almighty God and knows His Son as their personal Savior as the Holy Scriptures so teach. They are thankful daily for all that Almighty God has provided for them (in time and in eternity) and they are found throughout the social classes today.
The Pilgrims of 1620 aren't all gone. There are Pilgrims here in America still today. As we give thanks this Thanksgiving 2013, do you understand the bridge, the connection between the Pilgrims of 1620 and the "Pilgrims" of today?Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
