God is not on Cruz Control

  1. Thank you for your post. But I think you are too kind. I used to think Evangelicals have lost it. Now I know they never had it.

  2. Daniel, I am standing right beside you. Wasn’t there something during the founding our country regarding separation church and state? Only in verbiage was this country founded on Christian values and the politicians who use that phrase should do some research.

    Matthew 22:37–40 says….don’t go around telling people you love me unless you love your neighbor….v. 40 On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.

    Consider the Lilies…..

  3. Tom Bailey, There was never anything in the founding documents of the United States of America that spoke of separation of Church and State. The only place that is mentioned is in the Communist Manifesto. The US was founded on religious tolerance, but also on Christian beliefs. It was John Adams who said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
