For a very long time it seemed like our country hated God.
From our public schools to our scientific institutions, it seemed like our leaders were trying to eradicate any trace of faith from our society. And by and large, they were successful.
How often is God mentioned on TV or on the news? How often are Biblical ideas, even basic moral principles, discussed in our culture? Yet we always hear people talk about evolution and the Big bang, concepts that are in direct conflict with faith in God. Not to mention lifestyles and sexuality that defies our Biblical traditions.
This is an orchestrated attempt by unbelieving people to erase the idea of God from our culture, and ultimately our lives. They want to force Americans to live a largely godless life. This, despite the fact that our nation was founded on Biblical principles, by men who had sincere faith in the Almighty.
For years we’ve had leaders that contradicted this tradition. We’ve had lawmakers, even presidents, that embraced every secular agenda that came their way, but turned a blind eye to people of faith. This was especially true of Obama—who claimed to be a Christian—yet his decisions rarely reflected a man who believed.
Today we have a president with conviction and faith—who celebrations our godly traditions and the people of America who believe.
He made that clear at a recent event and uttered something so anathema to liberals, they’ll need to hide away in their safe space for the next week.
From The Hill:
Speaking to a friendly crowd at the country’s largest Christian university on Saturday, President Trump told the graduating class that “in America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.”
“America has always been the land of dreams because America is a nation of true believers,” Trump told those gathered at Liberty University.
“When the pilgrims landed at Plymouth, they prayed. When the founders wrote the Declaration of Independence, they invoked our creator four times. Because in America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.”
“It is why our currency proudly declares, ‘In God We Trust,'” Trump continued. “And it is why we proudly proclaim that we are one nation, under God, every time we say the Pledge of Allegiance.”
It’s very appropriate that Trump’s first commencement speech as president would be at Liberty University. It’s the largest Christian university in the country and they were strong supporters of the president during the campaign.
For generations there have been people in our government working to erase our godly and Christian heritage. Yet Trump’s words at Liberty signal at least his commitment to our faith-based roots.
The United States is unique in the world because we strive to protect the freedoms of our people. We don’t want an all-powerful government that rules over us. Instead our government is meant to empower the people, so we can thrive on our own.
That was largely influenced by the faith of the men who crafted our Constitution. They understood that people of strong faith and conviction will thrive, no matter what. And it’s the government’s job to ensure they have a country in which to do that.
Not everyone in America has faith in God. That is their choice. But it’s the people who carry on the traditions of our forefathers, with strong faith in God, that are the backbone of our society. It is because of them that we continue to prosper and thrive.
With the president’s words, he is vowing that will always be the case.
