Pastor Delivers Ten Commandments on Horseback to Oklahoma Capitol in Protest of Monument Removal

Cowboy Church-compressedOKLAHOMA CITY — Nearly a dozen Texas Christians rode 100 miles to Oklahoma City this week to deliver a tablet engraved with the Ten Commandments after a Decalogue display was removed from the grounds of the capitol building earlier this month.

“We’re riding for the law of God today,” John Riggs, pastor of the Texoma Cowboy Church in Wichita Falls, told those gathered. “We fully believe that this country was founded upon the principles of God’s word. It breaks our hearts to see where this country is headed and to see the removal of the law of God from our land, from our buildings.”

He said that his church had been following the situation in Oklahoma and decided to replicate the monument that had been removed and deliver a smaller version to Gov. Mary Fallin. They set out on horseback on Tuesday to achieve their mission, arriving to their destination on Friday, where they were greeted by approximately 40 Christians from various area churches.

“I believe it starts with the Church,” Riggs stated. “And so the message for me is to the Church in America today. To say to wake up, to stand up, to speak up. To speak up for the things we hold to be true and dear.”

Fallin said that she was moved by the gesture.

“They cared so much about what was happening in Oklahoma and cared so much about the Ten Commandments and what it represents—the morality of society — that they rode horses all the way to Oklahoma from Texas,” she told the Star Tribune. “You know, sometimes Texas and Oklahoma may have a little competition, but in this thing we stand together.”

She accepted the tablet, stating that she would place it in her office.

As previously reported, in light of an order from the Oklahoma Supreme Court, the Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission voted last month to give authorization to the Office of Management and Enterprise Services to remove a 6-foot Ten Commandments monument from the capitol grounds.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court had ruled 7-2 in June that the monument must be removed because it violates Article 2, Section 5, of the Oklahoma Constitution, which states that property cannot be used to promote a “church denomination or system of religion.”

The display had been the subject of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), asserting that its erection on the grounds of the state capitol building was unconstitutional.

The lead plaintiff in the case was liberal minister Bruce Prescott, the director of Mainstream Oklahoma Baptists. Prescott said that mixing the sacred with the secular in such a manner cheapens the monument, and asserted that it violated the Constitution’s Establishment Clause, which says that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…”

But Fallin opposed the removal of the Decalogue display while the matter was under appeal.

“The Ten Commandments monument was built to recognize and honor the historical significance of the Commandments in our state’s and nation’s systems of laws,” she wrote in a statement.

“The monument was built and maintained with private dollars. It is virtually identical to a monument on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol which the United States Supreme Court ruled to be permissible,” Fallin continued. “It is a privately funded tribute to historical events, not a taxpayer funded endorsement of any religion, as some have alleged.”

    7 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?

    2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.

    3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

    4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

      So: I’m free to break the ten commandments now, right???

      In the passage you cited, it’s you and I who are dead; it’s not the law that dies. In the mean time,

      Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, For I delight in it. – Psalm 119:35
      For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. – Romans 7:22
      Let Your tender mercies come to me, that I may live; For Your law [is] my delight. – Psalm 119:77
      I long for Your salvation, O LORD, And Your law [is] my delight. – Psalm 119:174

      And, please don’t ever forget:

      “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier [matters] of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.” – Matthew 23:23

        Amen to that! Antinomianism is one of the biggest problem in Christianity today.

        A good article to refer others to is “Chapter Five The Antinomian Christian” by David Servant (Shepherd Serve/heavensfamily). Just google it.

        Romans 3:31 (authorized KJV)- Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

        • wandakate

          YES!!! JESUS wanted the law to be established, to be obeyed. Our faith without our works is dead according to James.
          We are saved by grace, but we will be judged by our WORKS!
          JESUS said, “I am coming quickly, and my reward is with me, to give to each according to His works shall be”.

      • wiseryet

        Your statement is blasphemy in the worst degree, for in it, you say that we have ability that not only gets the job done, but that Jesus would be a sore loser at the task.

        You need Jesus.

      • wiseryet

        Who said YOU or anyone can keep the Ten Commandments? Certainly not the Bible.

        You should use your Bible as something other than a doorstop.

        • wandakate

          WHAT????? Of course we can keep the Big 10. WHY could we NOT keep them, they’re not that difficult if we strive to do so, if we focus on pleasing GOD, we will please Him and JESUS told us to obey. “IF you love me, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS”. Well, do we love Him?, if we say we love Him and deliberately disobey Him, we are liars and the truth is not in us. Yes, that is scripture too.
          The bible did say we can because JESUS said that we can.
          He will not put on us more than we can bear.
          If people aren’t keeping them (ALL 10 OF THEM), they they just don’t want to, they don’t care about it, and they will account for that on judgments day. The truth is the truth and it will set you free.

        • Paul Duca

          But you shouldn’t use it the way other do a centerfold…

      • wandakate

        Oh and what about JESUS who said, “I have not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.” Increase it, fulfill it, establish it. He certainly didn’t come to “do away with the law”.
        JESUS also said, “IF you love me, keep my commandments”. So, you can see He wanted us to keep His moral laws, his 10 commandments. He wanted our obedience and desired for us to keep His laws.
        Paul said that the law is Holy, Just, and Good.
        We will be judged by our obedience. JESUS said, “I am coming quickly, and my reward is with me to give to each man according to His WORKS shall me. So, here I am reading that to JESUS our works was very important. Our works is our obedience, our deeds and our actions. Our actions are louder than our words.
        Today’s Christians don’t like the word “LAW”, or the word “WORKS”. They are stubborn and backslidden and deceived. They want GOD on their terms. They want to obey the commandments that fit snugly into their “busy” lifestyles. If they break a few of them, they don’t seem to be too concerned about it.
        They break them all the time, and break the 4th one every single week that passes. SO, judgments is going to start in the house of the LORD (the Church). I hope they’re ready.

    “We fully believe that this country was founded upon the principles of God’s word.”

    I cannot reconcile the revolutionary war with any of the principles taught by Christ and the Apostles. Nor can I reconcile our history of war and violence with their teachings.

  • Dave_L

    “We fully believe that this country was founded upon the principles of God’s word.”

    If you consider that the Roman Empire became a vast assortment of Christian nations under Constantine. And later under the Papacy. And later under the Lutherans, and Reformed. And millions were ruthlessly destroyed, burnt at the stake, drowned, hung and beheaded for thinking incorrect thoughts. You do not want a “Christian Nation” in any way, shape or form.

    • Names_Stan

      It’s interesting how cultural thoughts and philosophy seem to have “cycles”. What was once universally decried will invariably become cool again.

      I think about Mel Brooks’ “History of the World, Part 1”. I was just a kid, but everyone knew the stereotypical symbols of the Inquisition, and that it stood as a metaphor for misguided religion at best, and pure evil at worst.

      But at the rate we’re going on this road of exclusivism and legislated morality, I wouldn’t be surprised if the underlying philosophy makes a comeback.

      How outlandish does it really sound that you might hear the following in coming years:
      “Look, we’re doing these gays a favor. It may hurt them today, but if it keeps them out of hell, we’ve saved them billions of years of suffering. So if what I’m about to do bothers you, just turn your head. We’ll be right back, after a word from our sponsors.”

      Maybe a stretch. But reportedly American Christian activists assisted African nations in drafting anti-gay laws, including the consideration of the death penalty.

      Lastly, and most practically, as I argued last week, the claims that the bible can just sit in for U.S. penal and judicial code, because of all its “objective morality”, is ludicrous.

      Issues of crime and punishment involve a tremendous about of detail and nuance. And our constitution involves a tremendous amount of due process.

      But, Jesus said; My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.” (John 18:36)

      • Joel Saint

        So, Christ is not King? I’m afraid He is. But I give you credit for quoting the whole verse (many do not). Christ saying my Kingdom is not “of” this world has the meaning of origin, not location.

        That’s why He clarified His statement at the end of the verse: “but now is my kingdom not FROM hence.”

        His Kingdom does not get it’s authority from earthly agents like Caesar or Pilate. But He is King, and as a King, He has laws. We ignore and break them at our own peril.

        In the mean time,

        “John, to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the RULER OVER THE KINGS OF THE EARTH. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, – Rev 1:4, 5

        There is not one square inch on this planet that is not under the authority of Jesus Christ.

        Not one.

        • Dave_L

          Very well said. I agree that Jesus rules over the Kingdoms of this world, only that Satan and the wicked principalities and powers are instruments of wrath in his hand. He rules the nations through them as with a rod of iron.

          He also rules in the hearts of the Church in the Kingdom of God/Heaven. And the rules he gives Satan to play by and the rules he gives the Church to play by are opposites.

          This is why we never see Christians meddling in the affairs of State in the New Testament but only co-existing peacefully along side of them.

          The State returns evil for evil. The Christian returns good for evil. The State hates enemies, the Christian loves them, etc., and so on.

        • wandakate

          The sacrificial laws, and the ceremonial laws, as well as the common laws (600+) were all washed away at the cross then JESUS our sacrificial LAMP died for our sins.
          HOWEVER, the BIG 10 Commandments are known as our “Moral Laws”, or our “Royal Laws” and they were NEVER done away with. We are still bound to them so why don’t Christians realize this and honor them like they are supposed to?
          JESUS said, “IF you love me, keep my commandments”.
          Are we doing that?

  • acontraryview

    “We fully believe that this country was founded upon the principles of God’s word.”

    Given that the protections provided by the Constitution directly conflict with 7 or the 10 Commandments, his belief is false.

    “It is virtually identical to a momunment on the grounds of the Texas State Capital which the United States Supreme Court has ruled to be premissable”.

    As Ms. Fallen clearly knows, this has nothing to do with the SCOTUS. It is an issue of the Oklahoma Constitution.

    “historical events”

    There is nothing that confirms the provision of the 10 Commandments to be an “historical event”. It is part of the Christian belief system. Nothing more.

  • http://www.remnantofgod.org/ John1429dotorg

    Several things to note here.

    #1. The Ten Commandment monument in [that was in] Oklahoma is not the Law as penned in Exodus 20. The first four Commandments, that addresses man’s love for God (Matt 22:37), are all SHORTENED. The 10th Commandment, which, along with 5 through 9 displays man love for his fellow man (Matt 22:39), has been re-written. Both of these are direct transgressions of this…

    Proverbs 30:5-6, “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar”

    #2. The copy that this “cowboy” is delivering follows the same structure. It is not the copy of the Law in Exodus 20.

    #3. I’d tear that thing down too…who displays an “Eye of Horus” on what is supposed to be the Law of God?

    #4. I find this amazing. We have this uproar from Christians in the US about the removal of the ten commandments monument, and yet they don’t even keep God’s ten commandments. They reject the 7th day sabbath of the 4th commandment, in favor of Rome’s day of the sun! And when you tell them that we should be keeping the 4th commandment exactly as stated, they reply by saying the ten commandments are no longer on stone, they are written in our hearts, or abolished, fulfilled, changed, etc (Name the first government of this planet that does not have its laws). And yet they now complain about this piece of stone being removed! Anyone see the hypocrisy in that?

    We either defend and keep the ten commandments – as in all of them…with Christ’s help – or we reject them all – even if it’s just one of them!

    • Josey

      Wow, I didn’t even realize until you posted this that this ten commandment plaque has all of these symbols on it, I went and did a search on it myself which is what I should have done to begin with instead of assuming it was like the one I used to have in my home which was a smaller replica of the one in Exodus. The eye of horus is there as you said but of course they make these symbols look patriotic at a glance and to those who have never researched exactly what the symbols really mean they surround a couple with stars to look patriotic and also other occultic symbols which breaks the first and second commandment right off the bat, it is an abomination to have those included. I will be doing more homework before coming to the defense of anything anymore, I assumed w/out looking at the picture of this plaque that it was like the one written in the Bible and yes it has the words, not complete sentences but the gist of each commandment is there but has all the occultic symbols mixed in. Glad it was removed and I no longer support another like it being given. Thank you for posting this John or I wouldn’t have done the search on it and saw the picture of it for myself. We cannot take anything at face value anymore. I love God and Jesus Christ with all of my heart and I don’t need any symbol to express that, for my love for Him is written on my heart but I see our freedoms being stripped away and I get miffed at that and find it’s easy to get caught up in the emotion of things or drama as one other poster warned us we as children of God shouldn’t do. And we shouldn’t be surprised by these things or by the deceit for the word of God already warns us what is taking place and we have to remember to trust in the Lord with all of our hearts, obey Him even when the crowd is going the other way and know that nothing happens on this earth without His allowing it, we usually do not understand all of His purposes but that is why it is called Faith, believing in Him w/out seeing just as the many patriarchs did and they believed in promises that were afar off and didn’t see the answer a lot of the time while on earth but they believed because they knew Him who is faithful to fulfil every promise He makes. His word does not return unto Him void but accomplishes all that He sends it to do.
      Isaiah 55:11 kjv So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
      God bless my brothers and sisters in Jesus (the Christ) our Messiah and may He keep us alert, strong and obedient in all things He has taught us in His word, I am thankful for each and everyone of you for you all have something to teach. If I have been harsh in any word to anyone I ask for forgiveness and know I am praying about being as Jesus would have me to be, pray for me too.

          I did read your comment and yes is on the dollar bill as well but there again there were a lot of freemasonry and other secret organizations involved in our government so they can say it is whatever but they want one thing, a NWO and one world religion which the Bible prophesies will come and then will be destroyed by Christ Jesus Himself. And the Bible never talks about God having one eye of providence either.

          • http://theantisatan.blogspot.com AntiSatan

            I haven’t studied (researched) too much on the Eye of Providence- but supposedly it symbolizes the omnipresent view of God (God sees everything as He is everywhere). I took a quick glance in wikipedia regarding it. The Eye of Providence is a man made symbol and of course it’s not given in the Bible, and that’s why Christians should be wary of such symbols.
            However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s evil altogether. Citing from wikipedia- in Christian history, the association of the eye with the concept of Divine Providence in the Christian era of Renaissance European iconography, where it was an explicit image of the Christian Trinity. Then later in the 1700s the Eye of the Providence was adopted as part of the symbolism of the Great Seal of the U.S. On the version of the seal that was eventually approved, the Eye is positioned above an unfinished pyramid of thirteen steps (again symbolizing the original States, but incorporating the nation’s potential for future growth). The symbolism is explained by the motto that appears above the Eye: Annuit Coeptis, meaning “He [God] approves (or has approved) [our] undertakings”.

            Regarding its association with Free Masonry, quoting from Wikipedia again- “common Masonic use of the Eye dates to 14 years after the creation of the Great Seal. Furthermore, among the members of the various design committees for the Great Seal, only Benjamin Franklin was a Mason (and his ideas for the seal were not adopted). Indeed, many Masonic organizations have explicitly denied any connection to the creation of the Seal.”

            My personal take on it is- I haven’t come across anything (at least in my limited research) to be convinced that the Great Seal has the Eye of Horus nor have I been convinced that the Eye used in the Great Seal is an evil symbol, altogether.
            Like I said before, my issue is with antinomianism.

        I’m in your boat, you and John1429 and whoever else is in agreement with all of us PTL from whom all blessings flow.
        We must pray for alertness, and yes to be strong in the LORD and by all means obedient to His word.
        Last night was Halloween, and all of my neighbors were out in full force and costumes with their children. Candy everywhere, and across from me a graveyard with tombstones, and ghosts flying in the trees with black vultures also. Pumpkins at several places and this started at around 5 p.m. when they had a couple of tables set up down the road with snacks (finger foods) for everyone. And then from there this goes on until about 9:45 last night when it finally quietened down.
        Since I don’t participate in this holiday AT ALL, I was home alone which was fine with me. My porch light was not on and therefore not one person knocked on my door and I was happy about that, as I didn’t have any candy and didn’t want to be bothered on this pagan, satanic day. It’s satan’s holiday but most people including Christians think it’s just innocent fun, little do they know about the origins of this holiday.
        They want what they want and to do it their way. They celebrate this black holiday last night and this morning some of them got up and went to church. Now, what on earth is going on? They worship satan one night and GOD the next morning.
        I think something is wrong with this picture. Can anybody on this thread tell me if I am correct in my thinking? They can’t serve GOD and man or satan at the same time.
        JESUS would have nothing to do with this holidays. It’s not for Christians, yet they were all mixing in with the rest last night as if it didn’t even matter.

    • http://theantisatan.blogspot.com AntiSatan

      is that the Eye of Horus or is it the Eye of Providence? True, Christians should be wary about images and symbols in relation to God, however, my main issue is with antinomianism in regards to this topic.

      Perhaps you should refer to also what Oklahoma Rep. Ritze said in an interview regarding this couple of years ago. I can’t give you the link as giving external links is not allowed on this website. I can give you the title of the article and the name of the website and then you can google it.

      (1). “Ritze responds to questions about newly-installed Ten Commandments monument” by Andrew W. Griffin (Red Dirt Report)

      Quoting the article and also Rep. Mike Ritz from the above article- “Upon closer inspection, at the top of the monument are images of the ancient version of the tablets from Mt. Sinai. And in between them is an image of the “Eye of Providence” – the “all-seeing eye,” which is linked to the “all-seeing eye of Horus,” the ancient Egyptian deity.

      Ritze, though, says that the image is simply “the Eye of Providence.”

      “It’s a symbol of the eye of God that we’ve used since before the Founding,” Ritze said. “It’s on the Great Seal of the U.S., the dollar bill …”

    • wandakate

      HELLO, I see it here in N.C. I have friends out in Missouri who see it too. We all understand. They are all in disobedience to GOD and He knows it and He is going to send JESUS to judge them. They will receive their due punishment for their blatant disobedience.
      NONE of the 10 Commandments have been done away with. They are NOT obsolete, they are NOT irrelevant, and they still stand even unto today.
      JESUS said He didn’t come to abolish the laws, No, He came to establish them. Fulfilling and establishing them are the same thing.
      Christians break them every single week without even realizing it, and you are right, when they are told they come up with all those things, every excuse in the books. They don’t want to keep the Sabbath holy, it’s Sunday now. Sunday was the day of the “sun god”. It’s all about pagan worship. JESUS told us not to do what the pagans and the heathens do now or ever.
      JESUS also said, “IF you love me, keep my commandments”. Our “moral” laws of GOD are the same as when they were written on two tablets of stone by GOD Himself. He never did away with them. They were put into the Ark of the Covenant (testament) and they will be once again seen when JESUS appears at the 7th trumpet. JESUS will come and take possession of this evil world away from satan (the god of this world) and at that time they will be seen again PTL. Revelation 11:15-19 tells us that JESUS will appear at the 7th trumpet and these things will happen right then.
      Didn’t scripture tell us that if you have broken one of these commandments, you have broken them all.
      Confession is needed, repentance is needed and then we must forsake our sins and get back to the basics of obedience in order to be in the coming Kingdom of GOD.

  • AmericatheScrewed

    Good job, Pastor! Thank you.

  • FoJC_Forever

    Those who preach the Law have to live by the whole Law. Even if they fulfill it all, they will not inherit Eternal Life. Christians preach Jesus (the) Christ, who is the Word of God, not the Mosaic Law. The Mosaic Law, the Mosaic Covenant, came to a close when Jesus was resurrected from the dead, having satisfied the Righteousness of God, and rose to sit at the Right Hand of Power. Those who embrace and promote the Law, in part or in whole, are not leading people to Jesus (the) Christ for Salvation, but practicing a vain religion fashioned after the “traditions of men”.

    Follow Jesus, find Truth.

    • wandakate

      Well, I will have to disagree here considering that JESUS Himself told us to be obedient to His laws and commandments.
      JESUS said, ‘IF YOU LOVE ME, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS”. Would you mind telling me what commandments He was referring to when He said that?
      Our “Moral Laws” of the 10 Commandments never were obsolete. They have NOT been abolished or “done away with at the cross”. They are as relevant as they ever were.
      We are not under MOSES laws, no, but we are under the laws of GOD ( our 10 commandments). GOD wrote them with His own finger and they were placed inside the Ark of the Covenant and that will be seen when JESUS appears in the clouds with His angels to call up the dead, which is the rapture and the 1st resurrection all wrapped up into one huge event. Revelation 11:15-19 tells us that JESUS will come at the 7th trumpet (not before that) and e will call up the dead in CHRIST. The Ark of the Covenant will be seen at that time.
      Some people may not know their scriptures, but I’m not one of them. Most people in churches are deceived but I’m not one of these either.
      When you know the truth, the truth will set you free.
      We are honoring GOD by obeying His word. We are saved by GOD’s grace, but, we will be judged by our WORKS. Our works are our deeds, our actions and our obedience. Actions are always louder than words.
      REMEMBER JESUS words…If you love me, keep my commandments”.
      They meant a lot to Him or He wouldn’t have said so.

      • FoJC_Forever

        That was the Covenant between God and the children of Israel. Jesus (the) Christ fulfilled the Law and now God’s Covenant is between Him and all peoples, not just Israel. Exo. 34:27-29

        Paul wrote these words at the prompting of the Holy Spirit:

        Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Col. 2:15-17.

        It’s not a Sin to set apart one day to come together with other Believers, but there is not a specific day requirement in following Jesus (the) Christ. Every day is to be lived unto Him, in worship, praise, prayer, and deed.

        Follow Jesus, find Truth.

      I just read your other comment and what you are saying is that the 10 Commandments don’t matter any longer, we can break them at our leisure. We can break the Sabbath and we can murder, we can steal, we can bear false witness, we can do just whatever we please. Well, I say you are full of it!!! JESUS said, “If you’ve broken one of them, you’ve broken them all”. We were ALL (Jews and Gentiles) suppose to live in obedience to the LORD. The Commandments are relevant, they are as valid today as they ever were. They are NOT obsolete as people like you seem to believe.

        I didn’t say that in the least. If you live a textual based, commandment driven religion, you will not be granted the mercy and power of God to be saved from your Sin. The only way to be pleasing to God is through the empowered obedience of and from the Holy Spirit. The only way you can receive the Holy Spirit – be baptized by Jesus (the) Christ – is through the mercy and power of God by Faith, not through trying to fulfill the 10 commandments or the Mosaic Law.

        You break one, you’re guilty of all, and everyone has broken, at least, one of them. (I think it’s safe to say that most, if not all, have broken more than one.) The Law judges us all under Sin, therefore in need of God’s mercy and power to save us from our Sin. If we accept this Judgement and His Gift of Righteousness through the Faith in and of Jesus (the) Christ, we will receive the Holy Spirit – with both the Gifts and the Fruit – to work in us to change us into the image of God’s Son, Jesus (the ) Christ.

        Jesus came to save us from our Sin Nature, not just the sinful actions we commit from it. He came to open the Path to Eternal Life. The path to Eternal Life is not through trying to obey the Law or the 10 commandments, but through continued, daily obedience to Jesus (the) Christ through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not the “hound of Heaven”. The Holy Spirit is God in the earth, saving those who truly believe in, love, and follow Jesus.

    Good for him! However, the Christian grassroots of America are found in the 17th-century, NOT the late 18th-century. It was in the late 1700s that America was sold down the river by a bunch of theistic rationalists when they replaced the 17th-century governments of, by, and for God for
    their own humanistic government of, by, and for the people.

    For more regarding these two polar opposite governments, Google online Chapter 3 “The Preamble: WE THE PEOPLE vs. YAHWEH.”

    We are going to have to stand together, Christians. And if we don’t stand together here, we WILL soon stand together at the Judgment Seat of Christ. There we will receive our final judgment. Whoever is found wanting will NOT enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
