We allowed our government, even our Supreme Court, to rule our lives. Notice the progression of decisions that brought about destruction on our heads.
"Student Prayer." "Prayer in its public school system breaches the constitution's wall of separation between Church and State." (Engle v. Vitale, 1962)
"School Bible Reading." "No state law or school board may require that passages from the Bible be read … at the beginning of each school day." (Abington v. Schempp, 1963)
"The Ten Commandments." "If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey the Commandments … this … is not a permissible state objective." (Stone v. Graham, 1980)
"Benedictions and invocations." "Religious invocations … conveyed the message that a district had given its endorsement to prayer and religion, thus the school district is to be prohibited from including invocations." (Graham v. Central, 1985)
(From "God We Still Trust")
We were as sheep led to the slaughter! We said nothing! So we're getting what we deserve. We turned our backs on truth, on God, and on His Word.
Now, more and more, our wills are being trampled on with almost no one crying out.
