I heard it said not long ago, and the tone of voice was extremely sarcastic, that it appeared as if the Christian population of the United States will not be satisfied until the White House administration was made up completely of Christians.  Also, the Senate and Congress along with every other office of every agency in our government.  My response to all of this is, "You betcha!"  To me, this is a
no-brainer.  Remember the final words of Jesus before He Ascended?

"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalme, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."  (Acts 1:8    NKJV)

Let's take a quick look at this Scripture, and let's reverse engineer it.  Okay then, I know that it's coming at it backwards, but just humor me for a second.

What does the verse above not say?  Well, it doesn't say we should do these things directed at all people except those individuals holding public office, does it?  It also does not give any indication that politicians are given a pass in regards to the salvation thing, does it?  I mean, isn't that the reason for all Christians to be empowered by the Holy Spirit and then go out and spread the Word?  Have we taken this reverse engineering look far enough?  Do we all get the picture now?  Right about now some will undoubtedly be hollering about the separation of church and state.  Okay, let's take a quick peek at that issue.  First of all, nowhere does any law or statute in this country disqualify any person from seeking election to public office because they are a Christian.  Secondly, the intent of the framers of the separation of church and state amendment was to address a major sore point found in European governments, one that had played a very large part in this countries desire for freedom from Great Britain.  This issue was not about people bringing their religious beliefs into either public office or public view, but to prevent the government from deciding that a certain belief system would be adhered to by all the citizens of the country.  As usual, those stupid enough to deny God cannot even get their facts straight.

Hey! Guess what?  I'm finished for now!  Can you believe it, not even a whole page.  Don't worry for a minute, those of you who might feel short-changed, I'll make up for this short post with the next one, it's going to be a doosy!

Be Blessed before the Lord!
