In June 2007, The President of these United States, Barack Hussein Obama, said, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation — at least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.” In 2009, he says we “do not consider ourselves a Christian nation” at all. So according to this President we have gone from not “just” a Christian Nation to “we no longer consider ourselves a Christian nation” at all.
Welcome to the New America.
The U.S. Supreme Court meant when, in Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 143 U.S. 437 (1892), they held that “this is a Christian nation.” They meant that this nation was founded on biblical principles, and that those who brought these biblical principles to this land and who implemented those principles in our system of government were for the most part professing Christians who were actively involved with Christian churches. For the most part the Founding Fathers belonged to some Christian Church.
American has always been considered a Christian nation, not that all Americans are or ever were Christians. But the vein of biblical based thought has run throughout our country since it’s birth. For over 150 years, the tenets of Christian belief and behavior have been mingled in our society, our government, our educational system, our worldview, and our culture. All reflected the teachings of God’s Holy Word.
The Old America has quietly disappeared. In the New America, Christian values and morals are no longer acdepted or taught. Evil is called good, right is called wrong. “What is” determines what ought to be. Situational ethics supercede the unchanging absolutes found in the Scriptures, the very scriptures that our Founders believed in.
In the New America. Truth has fallen in the street, and justice lies by her side. Your thoughts!
Next: How has this happened.
In the upcoming parts of this series I will be including some excerpts from the book, THE FALLEN EAGLE, by Thomas G. Reed. For those of you who read the series on Capitalism in America you can now read the opinions expressed by Mr. Reed on the subject of The Fall of Christianity in America.
Some of you asked for more of Mr. Reed’s opinions and specifically his thoughts on this new subject.
I hope that you will enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed putting together this series.
