We, the People...

 

 

DID YOU KNOW?

America's founders did not intend for there to be a separation of God and state, as shown by the fact that all 50 states acknowledge God in their state constitutions or Preambles to their constitutions.

This is an interesting fact in the midst of controversy over the separation of church and state.
 
After you check your state(s), look at the last sentence or two.

After reviewing acknowledgments of God from all 50 state constitutions, one is faced with the prospect that maybe, just maybe, the ACLU and the out-of-control federal courts are wrong!

 

 

 

Let us always remember what this great country was built on.
We, the people, WANT the 10 commandments on display.
We, the people,
WANT "In God We Trust" on our money.
We, the people,
WANT God in our Pledge of Allegiance.
We, the people, WANT prayer in our schools.
 

 

"Those people who will not be governed by God
will be ruled by tyrants."

William Penn

 

 

 

 

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
the people He chose for His inheritance.
From heaven the LORD looks down
and sees all mankind;
from His dwelling place He watches
all who live on earth -
He who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do.
No king is saved by the size of his army;
no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear Him,
on those whose hope is in His unfailing love,
to deliver them from death
and keep them alive in famine.
We wait in hope for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.

Psalm 33:12-20

Life is changed,not taken away.
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
