‘In God We Trust’ Or ‘To God We Turned Our Backs’

From John Sykes

Should we go even further than “In God We Trust”. How about “One Country of God, by God, and for God”? Are we already suffering the consequences of turning away from Him? Has Nehemiah been and gone again?

Over the past fifty years, a very vocal minority group of atheists have been systematically striving to remove every vestige of God and Christianity out of American society.  During that same time, Christians in large have sat on their butts and done nothing to stop the atheist onslaught.

However, one group is saying that enough is enough and that it’s time to stop allowing the few to dictate to the many.  Lea Carawan, Executive Director of the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation, has announced their plans to get the National Motto, In God We Trust, into every government public building including schools.  She explained why in a recent interview with OneNewsNow, saying,

“The reason this is important is because there is an aggressive and an intentional attempt to remove God from every vestige of our nation by people who are basically bullying the citizens to give up their rights to publicly pray and express their faith, and many feel like there’s nothing they can do about it.  We’re saying that’s not true.”

“Just like the fact that we have the right to publicly pray, we also have the right to put God up.  If we continue to allow just a few anti-God, anti-faith groups to convince us that we don’t have that right to free and public expression of our faith, we’re going to lose it. And we are a Judeo-Christian nation established with ‘In God We Trust’ as our national motto.”…

Even though the National Motto of In God We Trust wasn’t officially adopted until 1956, it did speak of the America our Founding Fathers created.  However, today it’s only a wish and desire that many of us Christians pray for and nothing more.  To be honest, if a national motto is to reflect the heart of the nation, perhaps it should be changed to To God We Turned Our Backs.  Heaven help us if don’t change the heart of the nation soon.
