Neo-Atheism and Christianity

Without argument, Christianity and the Bible is the foundation of our American culture. The first amendment of our constitution decrees that there should be no church state (read state denomination of the Christian religion). It does so by prohibiting congress from making any law "respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."


To conclude the "founders" meant freedom fromreligion is intellectual dishonesty. To apply the first amendment to all religions, other than "Christian" religions is also a deliberate distortion of the "founders" original intent. Satan, and those that serve him, cannot change the historical record of our forefathers who put their lives on the line to produce a nation, in the words of Lincoln, "dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."


The efforts of the neo atheists and their friends to destroy Christianity - is an attempt to destroy the very foundation of our country. Their influence is completely out of proportion with their actual numbers. A Gallop poll in 1948 indicated only 4% of Americans claimed to be atheists - 2007 the Gallop poll stated the number was still 4%. In other words, 4% of our population is determining the religious course for the 96% of the rest of us!

It is time for Believers to stand up against this unwarranted attack against our Creator and His Book. In Ephesians 6:10-18, Paul explains we must "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Everything Americans hold holy, is being destroyed. Public prayer has been banished, first from our schools and now from the public square all together. The Ten Commandments, holy symbols of God's law to mankind, are being removed from our courthouses and schools. Crosses, symbols of the sacrifice of the Son of God (John 3:16), are disappearing from the landscape. How long will it be before the crosses in Flanders field (where many of our WWI dead are buried) - where the poppies blow, between the crosses, row on row - shall be removed?


Where is the leadership among those that serve "we the people," in the White House, the Congress, and our courts? Obviously, to most, their vow to defend the Constitution from its enemies from within and without is meaningless - just words. Where are the instructors from our schools of higher learning? Where is their scholarship, their cry for toleration for Christianity, their dedication to truth? Where are the voices from our pulpit? Has the need for numbers and the craving for programs and entertainment eclipsed the charge to preach and teach? Have we, for the most part, bowed down to the idol called the Dollar?

David, the forefather of Christ, expressed our situation in Psalms 14:1-4: "The fool hath said in his heart,There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord."
