There is a deliberate campaign to de-Christianize America, removing Christ and the Bible from public life and public places, and ultimately from the consciousness of the people, much like the de-Christianization of France during the French Revolution (1789-1799).
In France during the Revolution, public displays of religious symbols like crosses were forbidden. Religious holidays were banned and replaced by secular holidays. Religious names of cities and places were changed to have secular names. Sound familiar?
The first amendment guarantees every American freedom of religion and freedom of speech:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” The First Amendment, The Bill of Rights, adopted December 15, 1791
If Christians do not stand up and fight for their civil and religious liberties in this generation, the future of America is bleak. Now is the time to stand firm. We cannot be silent any more. Now is the time for us to take back our nation and guarantee religious freedom for one and all.
Join me by praying for America and standing firm on our First Amendment right to worship God.
“Having done everything, stand firm.” Ephesians 6:13
