EDITOR’S NOTE: George Washington said, “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.” He also said, “Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle,” and one of his contemporaries, John Adams, said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Draped in the mantle of godless Communism, the modern Democrat Party is doing all in its power to remove God from public discourse and replace His Holy Name with their brand of shameless dabauchery. Washington and Adams were absolutely right in their assessment of government and morals and brother Jess Whitlock looks at how far we have fallen in the below article.
A real American President once stated, “If we ever forget that we are one nationunder God, then we will be a nation gone under” (Ronald Reagan). That time may be nearer than any of us thought possible. The Democratic National Convention in September of 2012 stripped the name of God from their party platform. Within twenty-four hours the party panicked and attempted to restore the name of God.
However, the majority of those present objected strenuously! God created the world (Gen. 1:1); God sustains and strengthens us (Matt. 6:26-33); God offers salvation to all men (Heb. 5:8-9); and God offers man the freedom of choice (Gen. 2:15-17). The Democrats let it be known that God is not welcome!
The name of God was booed! The name of God was hissed! This current administrationis eager to not choose God. At one time the party platform read “…the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.” It was changed to read “…each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive takes us.” The mention of God’s name was omitted. Why does that surprise anybody? It is God in His Word Who has clearly shown that abortion is the murder of innocent human life (Rom. 13:9). God has condemned sodomy since the beginning (Lev. 18:22; Matt. 19:4-5; Rom. 1:26-32). This current Democrat administration approves both abortion and sodomy. Remember when Newsweek Magazine put Hussein Obama on the front cover with the caption of being America’s “First Gay President”?
With each passing year this nation becomes more and more Godless! When Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa, convention chairman, came to the podium to ask for a vote to restore the words “God-given” there was very strong opposition. I heard the booing and hissing. I saw the shaking fists. A third vote became necessary. If Mr. Villaraigosa had honestly spoken, he would have had to say the “No” vote was in the majority. He was obligated to read the teleprompter and stated that the original language, (God-given) would remain.
Maybe someone at the Democrats’ convention was familiar with the Word of God: “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to turn aside after a multitude to wrest justice” (Exo. 23:2).
