One Nation Under God: Removing Rumors Spread by Anti-Christian Agendas

Mon, Apr. 24, 2017 Posted: 08:03 PM


National Reality Check: In the Pledge of Allegiance, we humbly state that we are "one nation under God". Think about the importance of that statement: We acknowledge that our rights come from the Lord --not from man.

The historical facts (as in this month's feature article) prove that the United States was created as a Christian nation. This meant that the USA folded her hands before God and then opened her arms to all people equally. Further, being a Christian nation meant that the United States could offer opportunities for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.

While we're on the topic, allow us to kill a rumor purported by anti-Christian agendas: Being a Christian nation does not mean that the nation desires to force people to convert to Christianity. Rather, it means that the nation is founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs which allow freedom and justice for all. Being a true Christian can never be forced. Becoming a Christian involves each person individually making a decision of his or her own free will: Everyone must choose to accept or reject the gift of salvation through Christ Jesus our Lord.

To be a Christian nation is a very, very good thing for all. (And that's putting it mildly.) Psalm 33:12 declares, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!" Alongside this fact, historian David Barton effectively said, "Without a public and official recognition of God, there is no hope of limited government, for rights come only from God... If rights come from God, then we can require man to protect those rights - as we did in the Declaration, Constitution, and Bill of Rights." (This month, we feel excited to share an article by David Barton of Wallbuilders: "One Nation Under God." Take a few minutes to read it and focus on the powerful quotes shared by our Founding Fathers.) Click here to read it: http://www.unitetheusa.org/id164.html

Wow, we are so blessed to live here in the land of the free! But it's up to us to keep praying and working hard to protect and defend our rights. Each generation is entrusted with that responsibility.
We believe the words of President Ronald Reagan continue to reverberate: Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

In fact, when a person thinks about it, it all can be summarized in one statement: "One nation, under God" actually creates liberty and justice for all...
