In my last tidbit, I revealed how the 1947 Emerson vs Board of Education successfully changed the definition of:
-The separation of church and state
-The separation of God from the state*
This magical trick is a foundation for much evil now confronting the American culture!!
The ‘separation of God from the state’ by definition must reject God’s word (Bible) from having any influence on public policies, because the “…separation of God…” is the same as separating from God’s word. Therefore, because no ideological vacuum can exist, what NOW fills the void of the Judaeo/Christian ethic—which originates in God’s word, and which has historically been used by Americans to determine good and evil—is liberalism, a doctrine of atheism. Hence, the re-definition of ‘the separation of church and state’, which obviously promotes its origin religion: atheism, is the reason atheism is methodically ‘becoming’ the unofficial religion of America!
There are literally hundreds of examples of the application of the re-definition of the separation of church and state to mean the rejection of God(Bible) from public view. A few of the more famous examples are Nativity scenes (Joseph, Mary, and Jesus in the manger); crosses, and Ten Commandments removed from public properties! Or, how about the rejection of caroling in the nations Malls; or businesses promoting “Happy Holiday” in place of Merry Christmas. However, the re-definition applies to many other deeper areas of American public life too; for example, the removal of prayer and Bible reading from public schools. The list of its applications is almost endless!!
Tragically, God says, I must be lifted-up in the culture(Ex17:15)! Or, My Word must be lifted-up! Or, My Name must be lifted-up…to draw all men unto me(Jn12:32); through Emerson’s ‘separation of church and state’, the government coerces a direct contradiction to God’s Word!!!
Interestingly, whereas liberalism has changed the ‘separation of church and state’ to mean ‘separation of God from the state’, the average American misses liberalism’s blatant hypocrisy in plain view!! How’s that? The term ‘the separation of church and state’ is religious!
The inventor of ‘the separation of church and state’ was not Thomas Jefferson, but a late 15th century pastor named Richard Hooker!! Pastor Hooker coined the term ‘separation of church and state’ to define the Biblical doctrine taught in Matthew 22:21 and 1Samuel 13:12. He defined the term to mean: God gives purpose to the state, and God gives purpose to the church; therefore, the two entities must be kept separate! In other words, through the scripture (Bible), Pastor Hooker taught, the Sovereign God determined the state should not rule over the church; nor should the church rule over the state--their God-given purposes separate them! Hence, the term ‘separation of church and state’ is a doctrine of the Holy Bible!
Therefore, it was never Pastor Hooker’s intent to remove God’s sovereign rule over the church or the state—as liberalism has arrogantly and deceitfully declared using the Emerson debacle!! Remember, Thomas Hooker was a pastor, and surely understood that nearly the entire Old Testament is comprised of story after story of prophets (men of God) speaking to kings (governments)…giving irrefutable evidence that, God not only created the nations (Gen10); but rules over them:
“For the nation…that will not serve You shall perish” (Is60:12)
Here is the point: liberals hypocritically use a religious doctrine, i.e. a Biblical doctrine: ‘the separation of church and state’, to reject God’s opinion from public policy!!! To put it simply, liberalism uses God’s Word to reject God!! Yet, this kind of blatant hypocrisy is the norm of liberalism!!!
What’s even worse however, is that this speaks to the utter folly of the church to allow such conspicuous deception right before our eyes!!
Now you can better understand why liberalism secretly changes the definition of:
‘The separation of church and state’
‘The separation of God from the state’
As I have cited in past tidbits, one of liberalism’s greatest methods of deception is word manipulation!! Emerson vs the Board of Education is but one of many examples!
May the Sovereign God have mercy one more time on our great nation!
*Or, it could also be: ‘the separation of God and state’
