Our American culture is in sad shape because Democrats have perverted it. In the last 50 years, they have purposely removed most moral restrainers that were observed and still are, by In God We Trust people.
The democrats Godless, demonic World View cultivates views and actions the LORD hates and punishes. (Romans 1:18-25) Their views and actions are darkness. In contrast, the Biblical View comes through the inspired Word of God and cultivates Godliness, which works in God’s marvelous light.
Paul was inspired by God to reveal how God delivered us out of the power of darkness in these words to the Colossians and us.
9 For this cause, we also, since the day we heard this, don’t cease praying and making requests for you, that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 that you may walk worthily of the Lord, to please him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God, 11 strengthened with all power, according to the might of his glory, for all endurance and perseverance with joy, 12 giving thanks to the Father, who made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the holy ones in light, 13 who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the Kingdom of the Son of his love, 14 in whom we have our redemption,§ the forgiveness of our sins. Colossians 1:9-14 (Eph 2:1-10)
Pew Research found that only 32% of self identified democrats believe in the God of the Bible.
That means 68% of democrats do not believe in the God of the Bible. They are carnal Pagans or Heathens. The devil, who holds the power of darkness, holds them in evil bondage through fear of death (Hebrews 2:14-18). Their hatred of God and Christians is shown by their uncivil treatment of us. Given their darkness, it is no wonder they want to remove all mention of God in public display and discourse.
Oh! Oh! Our current Pledge of Allegiance in includes God.
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Given their way, democrats would coerce and intimidate us into adopting their new version.
Their new version would probably read about like this: I pledge to obey the socialist government in this country, without God, and freely share income and property as dictated by the Grand Poobah.
Our American Culture still holds the American’s Creed. If elected as a majority, democrats would expunge it.
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies. America’s Creed
The Philippians lived in a culture that was in as sad a shape as our current American culture.
Paul urged them and us:
12And so, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only when I was with you but even more now that I am absent, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. 13For it is God who is producing in you both the desire and the ability to do what pleases him. 14Do everything without complaining or arguing 15so that you may be blameless and innocent God’s children without any faults among a crooked and perverse/perverted generation, among whom you shine like stars in the world 16as you hold firmly to the word of life. Then I will be proud when the Messiahi returns that I did not run in vain or work hard in vain. Philippians 2:12-16 ISV
Jesus told the Jews love your enemies at his Sermon on the mount.
43“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47And if you greet only your brothers (and sisters), what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:43-48
As Christian’s, our love must be willing to bear and to forbear, though a defense of right is permitted. If this were not true, it would follow that all outrages would go unchallenged, and a Christian would lose house and home, wife and children, as Luther says. “But a disciple of Christ should be willing and patient in suffering, even wrongfully, and not seek revenge nor return evil for evil.” Kretzmann (John 18:23; Acts 23:3; 22-25; Acts 13:6-12).
