The official meeting of RNC delegates Monday emphasized the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance after a committee and a caucus meeting omitted the words from the pledge during the Democratic National Convention.  —  from CSPAN earlier this morning.
Remember, in 2012 the Democrat Party removed God and positive language about Israel, from their platform.  After criticism, held a vote that was suspect at best, to put God back on their platform, which, after it was decided to do so, the room erupted into boos.
Whether you are a Christian, a Jew, or none of the above, this has got to concern you.  The parties have essentially drawn a line in the sand regarding God.  One is pro-God, one is anti-God.  One wishes to embrace the principles of a Judeo-Christian foundation, and one wants the alternative.  In short, the line in the sand is between good, and evil.  Which side should America stand on?

While God is not a Democrat or a Republican, the leadership of those parties have definitely indicated where they are on the question about whether or not our country should be a godly one, or not.

On 8/2/20, the Washington Examiner noted, “Portland protesters were filmed burning Bibles and the American flag as protests continue in the city for more than two months. Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz responded to a Friday video of people burning what was described as a ‘stack of Bibles’ on Twitter Saturday, saying, ‘This is who they are.’”

In reference to the Bible burning, journalist Ian Miles Cheong, managing editor of Human Events, tweeted, “First they burned the federal buildings, then they burned the churches, now they’re burning Bibles. Rather than asking “What is next?” we should ask, “Who is next?”

The Founding Fathers warned that if we abandon God, we are not capable of the U.S. Constitution, and liberty.  France abandoned God in their revolution, and what followed was death, pain, and tyranny.  The same can be said for the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Communist China, and Cuba.  The list is extensive.  If you abandon God, the result is misery, and blood in the streets.
  • Benjamin Franklin wisely determined that “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”

    John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

    George Washington, in his Farewell Address, said, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports.”

    Samuel Adams told us, “The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy the gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people; then shall we both deserve and enjoy it. While, on the other hand, if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of the Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves.”
