God Made America Great... What Will Happen if We Abandon Him?

"Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their leaders."

Chief Justice John Jay, 1816


I am continually amazed at how many of our modern day "intellectuals" deny the intent of the founders to have a nation that was directed by God. Many of the original colonies actually forbade anyone who was not a Christian the right to hold public office. Our early leaders prayed, they read their Bibles, and they attended worship. We were not a nation led by "Deists" as some would later claim; rather, we were a nation founded by people who believed in both the Father and the Son.


And the first Supreme Court Justice let the whole world know that he believed it was God who gave us our choice of rulers, and that it was in our interest to prefer Christian rulers. There is nothing ambiguous about his statement, and there was nothing ambiguous about the results.


Down through the years, at least until recent times, America has preferred Christian leaders. Further, Americans preferred to live as Christians, to work with a Christian ethic, and to influence the world with Christian ideals.


And it worked... at least until the Supreme Court forget Who was really in charge and began to remove God from the public square. Starting with a ruling in 1946 (immediately after America resoundingly won the last war that it has ever won) and continuing on to the present day, the Supreme Court of America has systematically attempted to remove the influence of God from schools, from the military, from our government, and from our public lives in general.


How are we doing now? Now we are releasing our enemies during times of war, opening up our borders to criminals, bringing in people with deadly diseases to infect our population, debauching our currency, perverting our children, letting men use women's restrooms, and loudly trumpeting our breaking of our nation's ties to Jesus.


How's that working out for us?


Maybe it's time to go back to the principles of the men and women who led us to greatness, and let those who openly despise America relocate to the Godless nations they so admire. Maybe it's time to not only prefer Christians for our leaders again, but to also prefer the Christ they follow. Would you like to hear another quote from an era when Christ reigned supreme and America actually worked? Me too!
