Religion Of The State

The two opposing forces vying for power in our government are the traditional/God centered wing, and the secular/progressive wing. We see that there is a variety of opinion, as not all secularists are progressives and not all traditionalists are conservative. Secular progressivism can be defined as the ‘religion of the state’. You cannot serve two masters. God or the secular world is the choice. Only one, at the expense of the other, can establish itself in your heart: The liberalism of today is vastly different from what we thought of, in the past, as being ‘for the little guy’. Liberalism today, which is essentially progressivism, is the power of the elite to direct the affairs of men. This modern liberalism has moved so far to the left that it is hardly distinguishable from fascism. Today’s conservatism has moved left also. Today, John F. Kennedy’s liberalism would be placed in the modern conservative category. There is no perceptible far right anymore. The right of today would, in past times, be placed in the “middle of the road” category. Today, the Judeo/Christian ideals of our founding fathers are considered far right, unintellectual and out dated. How can our children understand what our country was founded on when those ideals are held in such distain today? “Thurman Arnold, one of the New Deal’s most influential intellectuals, proposed that Americans be taught a new ‘religion of government’, which would finally liberate the public from its superstitions about individualism and free markets. It was as Robespierre insisted: the ‘religious instinct’ must be cultivated to protect the revolution.”

The ‘progressive’ religion of the liberal state is repressing God and His values in the American psyche. Remove God, and faith in the state is the logical next step. The evil of the totalitarian state is the end result of the progressive movement.

There are three forces active in the world today: The God of Heaven and earth, the evil of Lucifer and his followers, and the self-righteousness of man - which could be included in the evil of Lucifer. Remove the one true and living God from the public square and what is left? Satan and his unsuspecting followers, and the, ‘right in his own eyes,’ stance of mankind are essentially the same thing. If the proponents of man being ‘all knowing’ are predominant, which man: the free individual, who stands alone to decide his own fate, or the progressive who establishes himself as the all encompassing leader who rules the others life? Liberty and justice for all is not the goal of the progressives, who know better how to live your life than you do. Beware of the one who, without the guidance of the Bible, sets himself up as the judge of your life. Most Americans are viewed by progressives as uninformed, poorly educated, less intelligent, inelegant and opposed to progress. Clinging to your guns, Bibles and rugged individualism, which used to be desirable, are now viewed as undesirable.

I am sorry to step on so many religious toes here, but, God is not a Charismatic, a Pentecostal, a Baptist, a Methodist, a Presbyterian or a Catholic. God is God. The one true and living God of the Bible is not connected, in any way, to Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Baal, or any other man made god, who cannot see, cannot hear, cannot speak or move. Despite some of the fantasies you may have been taught , there is only one God, and that is the God of the Bible. You are perfectly welcome to worship other gods. You do have to realize that if you believe in any other god, than the God of the Bible, it is a fruitless endeavor with no eternal value.

“According to liberals, the message of Jesus,……, is something along the lines of ‘be nice to people’….In fact, Jesus’ distinctive ‘message’ was: People are sinful and need to be redeemed, and this is your lucky day because I’m here to redeem you even though you don’t deserve it and I have to get the crap kicked out of me to do it. That is the reason He is called ‘Christ the Redeemer’ rather than ‘Christ the Moron Driving Around in a Volvo with a ‘Be Nice to People’ Bumper Sticker on it.”

In the seventeen hundreds, the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob established the United States of America under Himself. He gave prosperity, protection, and the pursuit of happiness to us. He established a hedge of protection around us. The only condition to these blessings is that we follow Him and His word. As we have seen, the hedge of protection is being removed and the prosperity is diminishing. We have brought these things upon ourselves by our rejection of God’s word, immorality of all kinds and the slaughter of innocent blood through abortion. There is always a price to be paid for the rejection of God. Our nation needs to show repentance for our sins and revive the respect for the Lord as demonstrated by our founding fathers. Perhaps it’s not too late to avoid the lack of protection and the wrath of the Lord.

How much longer can we tweak God’s patience before we are no longer acceptable to Him? His book says He loves us all, even in our sinful state. Give just a little thought about how you are living your life, compared to how He asks us to live - in His word. You can accept the free gift that is offered, of salvation through Jesus, or He will love you all the way to Hell. There is only one thing that makes us unacceptable to God; rejection of Jesus as Lord and Savior.

We must realize that God is in control of all things. It is my contention that president Obama was elected because God allowed it to happen. I don’t believe that God caused President Obama to be elected. What is the reason and cause for this difference? Because of our rejection of the Lord, which has increased over the years, we have slowly hacked away at the protection that the Lord had placed over our nation. We have stepped away from God and therefore rejected His protection. The nation that was inspired and established by God is under attack from those forces that reject the will of God. Until this country, in repentance, turns back to God, we will keep going on the same downhill tract that we have since the 1920’s. President Obama is not the problem, nor was Bush 1, Clinton and Bush 2: it is the spirit of antichrist that is so prevalent in many of the last administrations. Pray for the salvation of our nation. We are not fighting against the forces of flesh and blood but the powers of this world. If our people, who are called by God’s name, will humble themselves and pray, God will hear us and heal our land.
