Bad Logic

Was James Madison wrong? Countdown to One Nation Under God, aired by Coral Ridge Ministries: 7 days.

Perhaps the Creator-Redeemer distinction could be made clearer. The church and the state are separate entities or institutions. Because they were joined in European countries, inhibiting religious freedom, the first amendment was declared. This is how Dr. Kennedy in Lord of All explains the problem. I had not seen it quite so well put. The question is what did Madison mean when he penned the first item in our Bill of Rights. It is obviously an attempt to keep the government from meddling in church affairs, which government trampled in 1954 by inhibiting free speech from the pulpits by threatening the loss of tax-exempt status. In other words, a pastor’s freedom was made conditional.

The only wall in keeping the church out of government is the notion of pastors, priests, or bishops storming the legislature and actually taking over the government by force, or a declaration of church rule. If the people want to elect them, (yoo-hoo)…if the people, I said, want to elect them, Amen. The exchange of ideas being stifled in this free country is ludicrous, anti-American confinement!

What does Kennedy say? There is no separation between God and State. Yeah, I knew that. But there you have it in a clear, concise declaration…God is to have free rein, and free Reign, in these here United States! Psalm 9:17 reminds us “The wicked return to Sheol, all the nations that forget God.”

Yes, this is what I’ve been trying to say. Theocracy—ruled by God, as in let the leaders and people and the pastors scream the Gospel loud and clear. No one will be jailed for not believing it, for not going to church (or I would be), or for going to a non-Christian church! Offended? I’m sure of it. We are a country of the offended…we speak our minds and we had better get used to it or pay the price of tyranny! Were we offended on 9-11? Did we shut down the mosques? Well, not yet. But remind me again…when was that last Christian jihad? Oh. Suicide bomber? Right. Violent demonstration? Don’t push it!

Here is my beef with our dear and brilliant founder, James Madison. He writes in his famous (uh, right) Memorial and Remonstrance:

“Who does not see that the same authority which can establish Christianity, in
exclusion of all other Religions, may establish with the same ease any
particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all other sects?”…
His logic is that it is easier to change an established religion than to establish one in the first place. I can see his argument. To establish anything would be to set a precedent. On the other hand, he didn’t, nor could he see what was coming: The silencing of the Lamb and then, the rush from all corners of the earth. He goes on, in the same document, to proclaim his confidence in Christianity’s self-sustaining power. Any thoughts?

The unanimous Supreme Court Trinity decision of 1892, after ten years of reviewing the evidence: “These [evidences] and many others which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declaration to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.”

Cool it…Not the Christian Church in power! The Judeo-Christian God, and none other beside Him!
Does this bar Islam or Atheist leaders—it should!

Amendment V: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compenation.”
