NO JESUS HERE

Yes you read it right.  Our government is saying quote in effect, and pardon my English, but “We don’t want No Jesus here!”

Who ever thought that in 50 years we would be cutting Jesus and Yes even God out of our Speeches and writings.  I am appalled and outraged at the Christian Community that won’t stand up!  I guess they haven’t read the bible in II Chronicles 7:14 that says, “If my people (God speaking) who are called by my name will humble themselves and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and heal their land.”

Now we have government officials telling Chaplains, and Police officers, not to speak the name of Jesus.  We have Air Force removing God from their logo.  What next?

Here is just a sample of things going on right now.  I will have the links listed below at the end of the article & you can read them for yourselves.

Air Force Removes ‘God’ From Logo

A Virginia lawmaker is calling on the Air Force to reverse a decision to remove a Latin reference to “God” from a logo after an atheist group complained.   Forbes, along with a bi-partisan group of 35 lawmakers, sent a letter to Air Force Secretary Michael Donley and Air Force Chief of Staff Norton Schwartz expressing concern over the decision to remove a non-religious reference to God.

“It is most egregious,” Forbes told Fox News. “The Air Force is taking the tone that you can’t even use the word ‘God.’”

Forbes said his office contacted the Air Force and officials there confirmed that the logo had been changed after the atheist group complained.  By Todd Starnes

Police Chaplains Told to Stop Invoking Jesus

Volunteer chaplains in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Dept. will no longer be allowed to invoke the name of Jesus in prayers at public events held on government property.

Major John Diggs, who oversees the chaplain program, told television station WSOC that the policy is a “matter of respecting that people may have different faiths and that it is not aimed at any one religion or denomination.”

Sartain, the pastor of Horizon Christian Fellowship, told Fox News Radio he was scheduled to give an invocation at a promotion ceremony. Before the event, he received a telephone call from his superior major.

“I was told chaplains can no longer invoke the name of Jesus on government property,” Sartain said. “(He said) if I could refrain from that during the invocation he would appreciate that.” 

The police department said he could still pray – just not to Jesus.

So to whom was the Christian minister supposed to pray?

“That was my question,” Sartain said. “If I’m going to pray – what should I pray?”

He said the police department wanted him to deliver a “secular prayer.”

 Todd Starnes from Fox News tells this story:

President Obama did not include any reference to God during his weekly address titled, “On Thanksgiving, Grateful for the Men and Women Who Defend Our Country.”

His remarks were void of any religious references although Thanksgiving is a holiday traditionally steeped in giving thanks and praise to God.

The president said his family was “reflecting on how truly lucky we truly are.”

For many Americans, though, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on how blessed and thankful they are.

The president said the “most American of blessings” is the “chance to determine our own destiny.”

He called the very first Thanksgiving a “celebration of community”

The president said that belief is “one of the reasons the Thanksgiving tradition has endured.”

But nowhere in the 11-paragraph address does he mention the Almighty.

The president said his family was “reflecting on how truly lucky we truly are.”

My Statement: Luck has nothing to do with it!

For many Americans, though, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on how blessed and thankful they are.

The president said the “most American of blessings” is the “chance to determine our own destiny.”

My Statement:  Our destiny is in the hands of our creator God.

He called the very first Thanksgiving a “celebration of community”

“We’re also grateful for the Americans who are taking time out of their holiday to serve in soup kitchens and shelters, making sure their neighbors have a hot meal and a place to stay,” he said. “This sense of mutual responsibility – the idea that I am my brother’s keeper; that I am my sister’s keeper – has always been a part of what makes our country special.”

My Statement: This is a question to God from the first murderer. (Am I my brothers keeper?)

My Question:  WHERE DO THE BLESSINGS COME FROM Mr. Obama?

Thomas Jefferson had no intention of allowing the government to limit, restrict, regulate, or interfere with public religious practices. He believed, along with the other Founders, that the First Amendment had been enacted only to prevent the federal establishment of a national denomination – a fact he made clear in a letter to fellow-signer of the Declaration of Independence Benjamin Rush:

[T]he clause of the Constitution which, while it secured the freedom of the press, covered also the freedom of religion, had given to the clergy a very favorite hope of obtaining an establishment of a particular form of Christianity through the United States; and as every sect believes its own from the true one, every one perhaps hoped for his own, but especially the Episcopalians and Congregationalists. The returning good sense of our country threatens abortion to their hopes and they believe that any portion of power confided to me will be exerted in opposition to their schemes. And they believe rightly.

 A significant proportion of the citizens of Plymouth were fleeing religious persecution and searching for a place to worship as they saw fit. The social and legal systems of the Plymouth Colony became closely tied to their religious beliefs, as well as English custom.

But while most of the rest of the world has been experimenting with socialism for well over a hundred years – trying to refine it, perfect it, and re-invent it – the Pilgrims decided early on to scrap it permanently.

As you can see above back then they did not want socialism either.  This is why they came here for FREEDOM.  They wanted to worship the way they wanted to and not to be told by the government how to.  They were Christians and they wanted to live as the bible taught.

I hope you understand now why we can’t have Jesus removed from our society.  While the government and the leaders are screaming: NO JESUS HERE, we need to be screaming YES JESUS HERE!
