PTB46: Drifting Away from “Under God (ATC #1).

PTB46:  Drifting Away from “Under God (ATC #1”).

Even as Dr. Lee would say, “God is the fundamental postulate of all rational thinking”, we begin with the God of Morality, defined as which god by the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The God of America, the God of “under one god” of our institutions, coins, and foundational documents, has only One Son identified  in the Bible of America as the Lord Jesus Christ Who died on the cross for the sins of the world, so that when the founding fathers spoke and wrote, as they often  did, of “one nation under God” were attesting to faith in God the Father, God the Son, and the realities of the Cross.  Granted that the respected Romantics like Ralph Waldo Emerson of the famous “American Scholar”, that helped to make the American Democratic Faith as distinct in some respects from Christian Bible faith, like many of the founding fathers and the Masons, were Deists which means faith in God but not in the Divinity of Christ.  Somewhat surprising to we that revel in the History of American Thought, starting with the Pilgrims and Puritans that came to America for religious freedom, with the age of enlightenment with men like Benjamin Franklin, and of the Romantics like Thoreau and Emerson himself who started as an Episcopalian minister.

The God of Morality at Mount Sinai

The famous 10 commandments given at Mount Sinai tell as much about the character on the only real God as the do about the 
requirements this Creator of man places on the creatures for 
ethics, morality, and righteousness.  You have no doubt noticed 
that directly in proportion to departures to other gods, so the 
nations or tribes of people also depart from this immutable 
standard of morality.  Many through subsequent years have 
strived, primarily under the leadership of Satan, the only other 
supernatural being in the universe, to emulate the famous 10, 
failing so drastically on the real God and real righteousness.    
There is just no adequate substitute for the Creator of heaven 
and earth who before Mount Sinai was known as Jehovah, the 
God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

I.  What you would expect from THE real God of 
Creation, the LORD God has always chosen the names by which 
He would be called.  He let Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob know that  
His name was Almighty God and Moses know another name for 
Himself as Jehovah.

“And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by 
the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not 
known to them.”  (Exodus 6:3)

II.  Proper Names are very important to the 
God of Creation, existed in heaven only until God let Himself be 
known somewhat as first God Almighty and then Jehovah.  And 
then when He was about to reveal Himself as the God of 
character and morality, He gave the name of LORD God.

“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, 
which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the 
house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
(Exodus 20:1-3)

III.  There is was eternally, in the name of a miraculous event of 
rescue for His own first nation out of Egyptian bondage–by the 
way a real know historical event in that time and 
now–establishes that there will not be any other gods or names 
to get in front of His own.

IV.  Following in Exodus 20:1-17 the LORD God establishes 
Himself in character and morality.

” Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any 
likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the 
earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I 
the LORD thy God am a jealous God; visiting the iniquity of the 
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of 
them that hate me; And showing mercy unto thousands of them 
that love me, and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for 
the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Six days shalt thou 
labor, and do all thy work:  But the seventh day is the sabbath of 
the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor
thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, 
nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six 
days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in 
them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD 
blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon 
the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet 
thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, 
nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.

V.  Muslims make themselves a joke, like Judaism at the time of 
Christ when they propagate a religion of any less than the God of 
Morality and character, showing a false god and a book that so 
poorly emulates the Bible as they teach and practice lying, 
coveting and stealing land and neighbor’s wives, and killing.  Of 
course in all intellectual honesty it must be admitted that 2/3 of 
Judaism at the time of Christ also strived with their own writings 
and interpretations to pervert and malign this God of Morality, the 
records of Whom as oracles were always committed to them.  So 
much can be told about what God is allowed a loosed from 
bondage Satan to do in the world by watching what radical 
Muslims like ISIS are doing in the world, and watching the 80% of 
Muslims that sympathize with them.

VI.  So much more to be stated, especially on what Jesus taught 
on the 10 commandments and more on the God of Morality, His 
Heavenly Father, which also was another Name by which the 
Lord Jesus Christ came to make known in all the earth.  It will be 
listed below and developed on other pages. Many questions will 
be answered like:

 1.  How Jesus explained the 10 commandments.
 2.  How Judaism in the first century and Messianic Judaism now 
strives to pervert the law, which was corrected at the Great 
Jerusalem Conference recorded in Acts 15.
 3.  How the law and ordinances also given at Sinai, other than 
the 10 commandments, were nailed to the cross as recorded in 
Hebrews.
 4.  How the seed of Abraham blessed all nations?
 5.  How often in the OT Prophets did God reveal Himself as the 
LORD of hosts, a God of all nations; and what other character 
traits did He make known about Himself?
 6.  How did the Koran and the name of Allah come to be 30 
years after the death of Mohammed written by a government 
committee of the third Caliph, and why it justified such a god of 
war and prophet and government of war?  The religion of greed 
needed a new name/book to justify death, expansion, and the 
conquering of other nations.
 7.  How Islam is more social conformity and social control 
without by the governments than a religion, and how so many 
youth have like Mormons become Jack-
Mormons to get along in 
their social environment without total commitment of a faith that 
will take away their moral souls.
 8.  How the demanded righteousness and morality from the only 
true LORD God can be achieved inwardly by man with the new 
birth provision taught by Jesus and empowered by the Holy Spirit 
of God?
 9.  What Jesus taught on the Name and Operations of Abba, 
God the Father?
10.  What the Apostles of Jesus taught on God the Father.

“Under God” is Under Fire

by AP Staff

At first glance, the news seemed encouraging. According to a decision handed down by the United States Supreme Court on June 14, 2004, the phrase “under God” will continue to be included in the Pledge of Allegiance. However, this is not as encouraging as it appears. Instead of ruling on the merits of the case, eight of the nine justices (Justice Scalia recused himself from ruling) decided that the respondent did not have the proper standing to bring a case before the Supreme Court, leaving the Pledge of Allegiance open to further attacks.

The case began in 2000, when Michael A. Newdow filed a lawsuit in the Eastern California District of the Ninth Circuit against the U.S. Congress, President Bush, the State of California, the Elk Grove Unified School District, and school superintendent David W. Gordon. In his suit, Newdow, who is an atheist, claimed that requiring his daughter to recite the phrase “under God” every morning in the Pledge of Allegiance violated the clauses of the Constitution that prohibit the establishment of a national religion and the free exercise of religion (Stevens, 2004, p. 4).

Even if Christian faith becomes a minority faith in America, the founders of the American Democratic Faith allowed for the protection of minority rights.  The sad fact increasingly in our government and public institutions is that while the Christian faith is still a majority movement mt, the rights of such American believers is being eroded by aggressive atheist, agnostics, and non-believers in anything.

Conclusion of Under God Under Fire:

The application to Christians is that taking “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance would put the United States farther down the slippery slope as it heads toward becoming a godless, morally depraved nation. This country was founded upon the common law principles of the Old World, which were, in turn, founded upon biblical, godly morals. If we are not under God, then the sky is the limit to our degeneration.

The movement in Pelosi’s House of Representatives to take way Under God

A key committee in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is moving to eliminate the God reference from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of a new rules package expected to be approved this week, according to a draft obtained exclusively by Fox News.

The draft shows that the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to recite only, “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?” {https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dems-move-to-strike-so-help-me-god-from-oath-taken-in-front-of-key-house-committee  }

Nations like individuals can “drift away” from the Great Salvation of God with no options for Escape—

“Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away. For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward,how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?”  (Hebrews 2:1-4) jR�a��
