Sunday Faith Blog

I was Googling around trying to find something I specifically wanted to post today but found THIS instead.   I think it’s terrific;  an overview of PRINCIPLE, LEGAL DOCUMENTS and THE BIBLE.

It’s laid out like this:

PRINCIPLE LEGAL DOCUMENT BIBLE
Sovereign authority of God, not sovereignty of the state, or sovereignty of man Mayflower Compact, Declaration, Constitution, currency, oaths, mention of God in all 50 state constitutions, Pledge of Allegiance Ex. 18:16, 20:3, Dt. 10:20, 2 Chron. 7:14, Ps. 83:18, 91:2, Isa. 9:6-7, Dan. 4:32, Jn. 19:11, Acts 5:29, Rom. 13:1, Col 1:15-20, 1 Tim. 6:15

I hope this becomes a blessing to you and highly recommend you bookmark it.  I hope you enjoy it;  it has some text below the chart that really is interesting, too.

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”  Proverbs 16:9

Let Him establish your steps….have a beautiful Sunday!

  1. Spent some time there, thanks.
    Similarly heard a lady on the radio yesterday say that our representational government comes from Exodus 18:14.

    Its funny you mention this today, Z, ’cause as I was watching a re-run of M*A*S*H I realized we have chaplains that are officers paid by our government, so how can we say we have separation of church and state? We simply accept the fact most military folks are religious so provide them with clergymen. Interesting, huh? Also a good argument we are indeed a country founded by God.

    Also, check this out:
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/87858cea-b7a4-3673-89ce-c4c26e255e1f/ss_pence-really-thought-he%E2%80%99d-be.html

    The headlines at various home pages read different permutations of: “Mike Pence ‘I thought I’d be president by now…I’ll wait'” I fell for this (didn’t see ‘satire’ until I sat here STUNNED after reading the article, thinking I have to write to my friend who knows Pence’s right-hand man and ask her!) ….the headline reads like that and most people do NOT read, they just see the headline and believe it. THIS is what I’d say is REPULSIVE, THE most horrible way to screw Trump, not just FAKE NEWS.

    Mal, those were the days….these days, they’re telling Chaplains never to mention Jesus, to keep Bibles out of the sight of soldiers, etc. SO, yes, back then, it was desired, soldiers felt there was coming bigger than them and got spiritual consolation and comfort from that…we’ve taught young people today there can’t be anything bigger than them. “you’re on your own” And so chaplains are probably a thing of the past..very soon.

    Ed, interesting..my post as Ex. 18: 16 as a reference but 14 kind of works, too….I think it’s a stretch.
    Unbelievably fascinating talk today at class before church….on predestination and double predestination, Molinism, Augustine, CYA, all permutations….all based on and in prep for our predestination discussion next week for the book we’re studying on Calvin V Wesley….amazingly interesting.

  5. Mal says:

    I hadn’t heard that, Z. I believe I will ask our pastor as he was a chaplain in the Air Force.

  6. Military Chaplains can cite Jesus to their hearts content, when ministering to Christians; they cannot, when providing invocations or other services in a non-denominational venue.

  7. Mal says:

    Just who is this Andy Borowitz anyway, Z? I mean, how can he get away with such obvious garbage? How low can the media sink?

  8. Mal says:

    Well, at least they still can do that much, CI. I’m sure they would like to even eliminate that and are probably working on it, also.

  9. Whoever “they” is, I see no evidence of that occurring.

  10. Mal says:

    The “they” I refer to are those that have been trying for decades to belittle all religion, but esp. God.

  11. Mal says:

    We’ve certainly seen evidence of it in the public schools, too, haven’t we?

  12. The public school system has no charter to minister to our children; it is woefully uneqipped to do so and in-Constitutional. Would you want governments bureaucrats deciding what your children learned about your faith? This why seperation of State and Church is a net positive.

  13. Additionally, school children may carry their Bible with them and pray anytime that it does not disrupt the learning environment, so there’s no sacrifice.

  14. geeez2014 says:

    I believe that Christians should not enter military chaplain positions because a Christian without Jesus is not a Christian. It’s not normal for a pastor of the Christian faith, any denomination, to leave Jesus out. This is mostly a Protestant thing, sadly, because I Googled only to find the mention of Allah by muslim imams has not been tested, neither have Catholics mentioning the Virgin Mary. Just Jesus…no way.
    FINE in private between two Christians in the military…until a pastor is sued after a set-up. Wait for it.

    There are lawsuits against children who brought Bibles into public schools to read to themselves. Teachers do not often permit it.

  15. Those teachers are wrong and should lose their jobs.

  16. geeez2014 says:

    Agreed. But, instead, there are long-lived, expensive lawsuits paid for by the tax payers, during which the teachers are there.

  17. Baysider says:

    This is an amazing find. We cannot fathom how deeply rooted in Biblical principles – if not faith – the men who created this republic were. I must return and study more.

    And Ed, I think that verse should have been Isaiah 33:22. It was ‘safe’ for the LORD to be law giver, judge and executive all rolled into one, but on the human side better to split these 3 functions among separate bodies that will be jealous of their power and fend off attempts by one of the other bodies to usurp it. Guess they never anticipated the EPA, HUD, etc.

    And Z, what a shift in our schools from one of our earliest teachers, Nathan Hale, who so ministered to his charges with open Christian character and charity.

  18. But, instead, there are long-lived, expensive lawsuits paid for by the tax payers, during which the teachers are there.

    Sure, but this paradigm transcends this particular topic. Madison’s words are useful in this one.

  19. Mal says:

    “Children may carry their bible with them and pray anytime…..”, but we’ve seen that challenged, too, CI. They’ve been unsuccessful thus far, but they do keep trying.

  20. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider. and- didn’t our children do better. The connection is ignored at America’s peril

  21. Kid says:

    I don’t find it the least surprising that Christian values – simply stated as the Golden Rule – and the Rule of Law ar so similar and joined at the hip. If we required all laws to be based purely on the Golden Rule, I think things would be much better from a functional, and conceptual point of view.

  22. In a couple weeks I’ll be host to William Federer, host of The American Minute and author on many topics, among them America’s Christian heritage, like David Barton.
    I’ll be interviewing him on our radio show also and he’ll be addressing a “symposium” on America’s heritage.
    Schoolkids are not learning about that heritage and being robbed of it because of the ridiculous fabrication of “separation of church and state” invented by left wing politicians.

  23. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, if people did act good all the time, what a world…….. Today, people think it’s not nice to even say what’s good and what isn’t.

    Ed, please tell Mr. Federer that it’s wonderful that he writes things and goes on radio, but it’s time we DO SOMETHING for our country. School kids aren’t going to start learning about their heritage unless people with good values start DOING something, overcoming the constant drumbeat of liberalism and ACTING in spite of it.
    The mistake about separation of church and state was liberals thought ‘and’ should read ‘from’. stupid stupid stupid

  24. Kid says:

    Z, Seems so simple doesn’t it… SO much pleasure to be had living within the sane and respectuful framework of respecting each other. So much.

  25. If we required all laws to be based purely on the Golden Rule, I think things would be much better from a functional, and conceptual point of view.

    The essence of Libertarianism……
