The importance of our passing the baton on to the next generation…

The importance of our keeping Christ at the center of our government…

as our founding fathers always intended, and of our passing our faith on to our children!!!

Genesis 18:17-19 17 Then the LORD said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?

18 Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him.

19 For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.”

We need to understand that we didn’t just arrive at the state we are in today, as a country over night.

No, we have been on this road for a very long time; and this has happened as the result of a slow and very well planned and methodical process of indoctrination and the dummying down of our education system; with the removal of any teaching at all, from our public education system about God and His requirements.

Contrast that to our founding fathers, whose first act, after the formation of our Republic, was an act of Congress that passed a bill to pay for the printing of Bibles that were to be used in early America to teach children to read and write.

The only separation between the church and state, was to keep the state out, and to give the people the freedom to practice their faith as they choose, unhindered by the state.

This is what the First Amendment says, and its prohibition is strictly one way, in that it prohibits our government from passing laws, or intervening in any way with the free exercise of one’s faith.

The separation of Church and State as it is practiced now is a complete misrepresentation and it is a blatant lie; in that those words “Separation between Church and State,” are not found anywhere in our Constitution; but were taken out of context in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson, to the Danbury Baptists, to make the exact opposite point, as I just stated, that the separation is one way… the state butts out and leaves the church alone!

If it hadn’t been for the church, we wouldn’t even have a Constitution, nor a government; and yet these people today who have yet to know God, among the atheists and agnostics who today run our government and make our laws, who even though some have a form of religion and give lip service to having a belief in God, we can certainly tell by their fruit that they neither know God, nor do they know His Son, Jesus Christ!

These people would take all of this history, regarding the rich faith and spiritual heritage that has been left to us by our founding fathers, out of our history books, and have secularize our government to the point we can’t even teach the Ten Commandments in public schools today, or even have them posted, as it is in our Supreme Court Building, for fear kids would learn what God expects, and would develop moral character.

In the absence of any teaching about God and the Bible, the enemy has come in to fill this vacuum in spades, with the result that our society today has virtually become a pagan society, that has long since removed the spiritual markers that were once set and established by our forefathers.

This is where we are today folks, and the reason is the Church abdicated its position and stopped preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, which covers more than just getting people saved; but it involves having Christians affect the culture of the day; and letting people know that a new King has come, and that He will return; and in the meantime we as His disciples are to occupy in the world, in our government and in our culture to establish His righteousness, as it is in heaven, right here on earth.

Watch this little video and I think it will explain what I’m talking about:

Well how can that happen unless Christians are evolved with the political process, and with every aspect of society? The answer is it can’t, and the result is what we see all around us today, in the complete lack of moral leadership and direction in our country.

We definitely have a situation today in Washington DC where the blind are leading the blind, and if we aren’t careful; and if we don’t do some serious praying and repenting before God, our entire nation will fall in to the ditch, and we shall lose both our sovereignty and our freedom, as a people.

Pray folks… watch and pray like the future of our nation, and that of our children is at stake, for surely it is!

Shalom,

Skip Barland
