“Christian” or Not?
Despite the US decision, Supreme Court Declares America a Christian Nation in (Holy Trinity vs. the United States) one needs to look at the overwhelming evidence that America was not founded as a “Christian Nation”, a theocracy, but clearly a Republic upon Judeo-Christian principles.
Given that fact, however, it is equally clear that our text for today is appropriate. Consider this, this, or any nation, (as far as I know, the US is the only nation to have a Constitution based upon Judeo-Christian principles) that claims to uphold Biblical principles God would rightly judge. That same nation that turns its back on those principles, should expect the wrath of a righteous God.
C.H. Spurgeon’s Treasury of David comments:
“God judgeth the righteous,” he hath not given thee up to be condemned by the lips of persecutors. Thine enemies cannot sit on God’s throne, nor blot thy name out of his book. Let them alone, then, for God will find time for his revenge.
“God is angry with the wicked every day.” He not only detests sin, but is angry with those who continue to indulge in it. We have no insensible and stolid God to deal with; he can be angry, nay, he is angry today and every day with you, ye ungodly and impenitent sinners. The best day that ever dawns on a sinner brings a curse with it. Sinners may have many feast days, but no safe days. From the beginning of the year even to its ending, there is not an hour in which God’s oven is not hot, and burning in readiness for the wicked, who shall be as stubble.
It has to be (or at least should be) obvious to anyone that there is a highly organized and concerted effort underway to undermine the very principles our nation was founded upon. The only way for the US to survive this attack is to insure a proper understanding of the US Constitution and our Founding Fathers by every citizen. Only then can we have any hope of regaining morality and the Judeo-Christian principles as the foundation of our society.
