ONLINE CHURCH BULLETIN

HAVE WE BEEN WRONG ALL THESE YEARS?

As you walk up the steps to the Capitol building in Washington; D. C.,  which houses the Supreme Court, you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers. And each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view... it is Moses and the Ten Commandments!

As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door. As you step inside the courtroom, you can see the wall right above where the Supreme Court judges sit. There above them sit a display of the Ten Commandments!  There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.  James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our Constitution" made the following statement... "We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for selfgovernment, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."

Patrick Henry, that patriot and one of the Founding Fathers of our country said... "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians ...not on religion but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher... whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.

Fifty-two of the fifty-five founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies.  Thomas Jefferson worried that the courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making laws.  The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said... "Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers." 

How  then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done far the past 233 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional? It is past time for us, as Christians, to take a stand for that which is right and scriptural!

For His Cause,
