The War on God “Alive and Well” in America
Nena Arias | August 5, 2013“We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation…” - President Barack Hussein Obama
Barack Obama made the above reference in Turkey on April 6, 2009. Why would he choose to make this statement and in a Muslim nation no less? It is obvious that since he became president he has taken huge strides to increase the distance from the biblical values that characterized our country’s origin and gave it its greatness. He went on to say, “…we consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.” However, he failed to mention where we got those ideals and set of values. What precisely are these ideal and values if the definition does not come from the understanding of the God of the Bible? Obama’s overt attempts to erase the influence of Christianity altogether from the concept of the United States as a nation continue in an in-your-face manner. Are we now fully dependent on what Obama and the state are defining as “values”? It is public record that Obama has cited the Declaration of Independence deliberately leaving the “Creator” out of the text and there has been no public outcry to correct him. However, leaving God out of the picture is no accident, neither has it come about overnight or even with the Obama administration. It has been in the making for over 150 years.
There is no doubt that the biblical beliefs are not safe in the United States. The very belief system that brought religious freedom to these shores, because of the abuses, is now backfiring. Some have purposed to dedicate their life’s work to eradicate God or the mere mention of Him in any and all public events and places including displays during holidays, in city and state seals, in courtrooms, public schools and even in military ceremonies and chaplaincy practices. Even the Supreme Court entered long ago into the fray with its rulings in matters of religion and morals; they have muddied the waters and caused the tide of the nation to go in a direction further away from God’s statutes for righteous living. The liberal judges that were appointed especially in the last half-century are instruments in the hands of the God-haters to further corrupt the biblical morals that were solidly imbedded in the foundation of America once upon a time.
When God is taken out of the picture, all we have is foolishness, absurdity, confusion and rampant sinfulness with nothing to restrain it and destruction looms. “The fool says in his heart, there is no God...” (Psalm 14:1). “Wise men lay up knowledge, but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.” (Proverbs 10:14). “The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for want of wisdom.” (Proverbs 10:21).
The war on God is increasing in America because the majority who do believe in God and His principles do not resist the god-haters sufficiently and consistently. The bedrock of God’s government, the Ten Commandments, is under attack in the courtrooms, schools and anywhere anyone dares to mention them in the public arena. No one knows with certainty how Jesus looked physically but any artist’s attempt at portraying him on canvas is quickly and swiftly attacked and if possible removed from the public eye.
This war on God can only continue to succeed if those who believe in Him stand back and do nothing. If they continue to buy into the lie that there is such a thing as secularism and neutrality; the god-haters will continue to win battle after battle.
Have we truly reached a place where God has no place in our nation? I say, “not on my watch”, what do you say?
