For my readers or listeners all across the world, this week’s article has to do with America, the land of the free and home of the brave. My temporary home as I have an eternal home that I have with God the Father, Jesus Christ (His Son), and the Holy Spirit. But let me turn to our temporary home, earth. More specifically, America.
I know there is some potential to get political, especially how American news outlets are handling the Trump Presidency, right now; however, I will do my best through Jesus Christ not to get political. Yet, it may have political overtones, but it is certainly not political. Rather it is about The Real Issue With The First Amendment Of The Constitution Of The United States Of America… Here in America, Christians now have to be careful of what they say about spreading the message of Jesus Christ. Here in the United States of America and with those who want to exploit the American law, now you are instantly vilified even mentioning Jesus Christ other than foul language that comes protruding from your lips.
When I was growing up during the ’70s and the ’80s, you could see the start of the movement to get Christ summarily banished from this country with groups like the ACLU, PLANNED PARENTHOOD * which now is a cover-up for convenient abortions, and others. These groups are still in full force today. For in a very short amount of time (20-40 years as far as history goes), it has gone from people who freely talk about Jesus Christ with a little bit of social awkwardness back in the 80s to, now, where you have to be careful in where you mention the name of Jesus Christ for fear of being labeled a religious bigot. In fact, one of my Bible-believing friends said the state of California is trying to outlaw the Bible. Yes, you read me correctly. Liberals who think they know better than everyone else, have strategically gotten themselves elected to various state representatives and senators to make possessing a Holy Bible a crime. Prayerfully, it has not happened yet, but the state of California is inching ever so close if you are caught possessing a Bible, you could be sentenced to jail time or pay a hefty fine. It would be the same as carrying a book of hate speech. REALLY!!!
Is that what the Founding Fathers could have envisioned in the First Amendment concerning Church and State? Obviously, no they didn’t. In fact, this comes from http://www.partnerwithschools.org :
