Jesus is Not In the Consitution, Neither is Our Christian God



Make no mistake, I love Jesus. And when I die, I want to be with Jesus. No one else. But Christian Nationalism has become a scourge in this country, hijacking the Lord as their political mascot, as if Jesus died only for Americans and not everyone in this troubled world, as if Jesus approves of and carries a gun, as if fusing politics and religion is doing "God's will." It isn't. In fact, all of the above are in direct opposition to our Lord's words AND the Constitution of the United States of America.


Let's take a look at the Constitution:


"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."


The FIRST (for a reason) Amendment requires an impenetrable wall of separation between church and state: "Congress shall make NO law respecting an establishment of a specific religion..."


How have we missed that??? Are we really that dumb?


Remember, the guys who wrote this left England because the Government there served a dual purpose as the "CHURCH of England" and head of state. There was NO separation between the state religion and the government. And that church/government liked hanging people for believing differently. America was founded as a reaction to that religious tyranny. Let's not become a country of the same disturbed intolerance from which we fled.


Let's not make the same mistake.


Let's be Americans, not theologians. Let's maintain our status as a Representative Republic: a Democracy, and not become a theocracy.


Get off the throne and let God do the sorting afterward like He said he would.


And let others worship as they want.


Please.


So, go ahead and try to find the specific Christian God or Jesus in the Constitution. You will not. The Christian God has a name, and his name is Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But you won't find him there, only a generic "God" or "The Creator," or "The God of Nature," or "Divine Providence." And there's an obvious reason for that.


The majority of our founding fathers were deists and wanted to leave the spiritual slavery of a forced belief system behind. Let them.
