Yah, I think we both agree. A while back there was someone on this form (I think it was John Yurich or Jim Lincoln) that was calling the Republican party the "party of God", and calling the Democrat party the "party of Satan"! I squabled with him for a while over it, trying to point out that not all Republicans are Christians, and all Democrats aren't God haters!
Thank you Frank! I also believe we probably agree on more than we disagree. There are Christians who elevate the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and The Declaration of Independance to highly. Though, I at least, would feal outraged if the Left started to redefine or replace these documents simply because A. It's the law of the land, and B. Because their redefinition and/or replacement would not be built upon Biblical principles. I'm sure you probably would agree with me on that, I just want to clarify my position.
John UK from Wales writes: In schools, I'm sure that even nominal Christian content, like the old assemblies with written prayers and spoken psalms and moral themes, were good things for the children to hear, some of whom would later make good professions of faith, and others would lead relatively moral lives, having been influenced by God's word from early on in their life.
Michael Hranek from Endicott, New York writes: It may be safe to say, the devilish 'Freedom From Religion Foundation', other groups like it and especially the malevolent fallen angels, principalities etc. behind them
hate any thought of heard and answered prayer
So let's pray, let's pray school children and their parents rediscover real praying our Father in heaven hears and answers
I wasn't saying we have a covenant with God and are his chosen people like Israel. Nor did I say that we were something ultra special in Gods eyes! I was saying that we started as a Godly nation (aka we were founded on Biblical princiles and Christian faith)!
One thing I want to clarify, however. God still uses our disobedience for his purposes. He is not responsible for our disobedience, but since Satan must get his stamp of approval so to speak, God is still technically in charge of our disobedience, even though He's not copable for our disobedience since it is our disobedience! He allows Satan to tempt us, so that He can strengthen us and humble us!
