What exactly is the “separation of church and state,” and where did it originate? First let me state that I am sick and tired of people using this as a political gain, to use against the churches in America. The latest, the Christ Community Church in Camp Hill because they showed a movie “The Return of the American Patriot.” Although I did not attend, I did see the trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0V-wF2zUZFM.
Now let’s get to the title of this blog. Where did it come from? In my book, “The Blessings of Liberty,” I wrote this:
“Our Founding Fathers NEVER intended to take religion our of our American schools, pubic offices or any other public arena for that matter. Yet, the past thousands of years have proven that the devil, if allowed, will pervert what God has established. So, where did, “separation of church and state actually come from? Thomas Jefferson on January 1, 1802 in his letter to the Danbury Baptist stated:
Believing with you that religion is a matter that lies solely between a man and his God that he owes no account to non other for his faith or his worship. That the legislative powers of government reach action only and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared these their legislature, should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” thus building a wall of separation of church and state.“
MEANING: The government will not interfere in a person’s right to worship god, or God! It does not, nor will it ever mean that politics cannot be preached from the pulpit. This is the very core of what is wrong with America. I also wrote in my book, “In 1947, the Supreme Court used Thomas Jefferson’s letter in a manner that was in opposition of its original intent, resulting in decades of further debauchery, death and demoralization.” Now a church who showed a patriotic film is under fire for showing, A PATRIOTIC FILM! How dare a church in America do such a thing!!! The film had the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall? Dear God, it even had that Senator Mastriano guy – a retired Colonel from the United States Army. What was this church thinking? I feel faint! Don’t they know of the false separation of church and state? It’s down right sacrilegious to be a patriotic Christian. It blasphemous – sacrilegious against God or sacred things; profane! Yes because God is so against the government being talked about in the churches, because you know..as the Bible states in Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder. And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” I guess they forgot that part about the government being on the shoulder of the Lord. So, of course, He wouldn’t want politics to be addressed in the church!
All this is an excuse to not follow after what God set in place – the founding of America! All this is an excuse to get away with bad behavior. All this is an excuse to SIN!
Come on AMERICAN PATRIOTS – VOTE RED and take our country back from those trying to destroy it! There is no separation of church and state. The government will not interfere in our right to worship. THAT IS THE ORIGINAL INTENT!
