I was reading in Jeremiah this morning and found the following in chapter 2: 11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.

I want to note that the founding of this country was birthed in the desire for Christianity to have a free place of worship.  Business men chimed in with agreements and financing which provided the means of transport for this nation’s founding.  The founders then established freedom of religion and utilized their resources in the government in a religious fashion.  I refer to the capital being the chapel and having church there every Sunday.

Significantly, the Capitol building had been used as a church even for years before it was occupied by Congress. The cornerstone for the Capitol had been laid on September 18, 1793; two years later while still under construction, the July 2, 1795, Federal Orrerynewspaper of Boston reported:

City of Washington, June 19. It is with much pleasure that we discover the rising consequence of our infant city. Public worship is now regularly administered at the Capitol, every Sunday morning, at 11 o’clock by the Reverend Mr. Ralph. 2

The reason for the original use of the Capitol as a church might initially be explained by the fact that there were no churches in the city at that time. Even a decade later in 1803, U. S. Senator John Quincy Adams confirmed: “There is no church of any denomination in this city.” 3 The absence of churches in Washington eventually changed, however. As one Washington citizen reported: “For several years after the seat of government was fixed at Washington, there were but two small [wooden] churches. . . . Now, in 1837 there are 22 churches of brick or stone.” 4 Yet, even after churches began proliferating across the city, religious services still continued at the Capitol until well after the Civil War and Reconstruction.

I found this interesting when I first heard the history, but it makes sense when considering the Founding Fathers and their study of the Bible and note that there was no denomination indicating the true intention of the 1st amendment.  There was never the desire to remove Christians from the governmental square.  That was added later when the push against Christianity began.  How can I say there is a push against Christianity?  Consider California.  Since the incorrect interpretation of separation of church and state was instituted, the state of California has decided to allow then require students to learn islam.  Note that when the “religion” is a totalitarian tribal doctrine, it is all right to force in the classroom.  When it is Christianity, it is forbidden.  I am simply making observations and interpreting what I see.

Further into the chapter of Jeremiah 2:28, 29:  But where are thy gods that thou has made thee?  let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah.  Wherefore will ye plead with me?  ye all have transgressed against me, saith the Lord.

The blessing of the Lord will not stay with the nation turning their back on Him.  We cannot as a nation accept macroevolution and state there is no god without consequence.  The philosophy macroevolution allows leads to infanticide and euthanasia.  After all, if a person isn’t made in God’s image, then the person is nothing different than an animal to be treated in the same fashion or removed if inconvenient.  Saying God has nothing to do with this nation allows the philosophy contrary to the founders to take hold the provide the destruction we are witnessing presently.  Ephesians 6:12 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.  This truly is a battle of ideas, and I am calling it as I see it.
