Let the light shine!

This flag says something to me; not just because of what it stands for, but because of what is behind it; the son of God and not the sun in the sky. Somehow the great thinkers of this land have perverted the original intent of the formation of this country. It was founded to be one nation under God, not one nation APART FROM GOD. The idea was to have religious freedom, not to separate ourselves totally from religion. We need to wake up to the fact that there are those in America who would by legal means slowly take away our religious rights under the guise of separation of church and state. This passage from the book of Ephesians will help illustrate.
Eph 5:1 Be therefore imitators of God, as beloved children.
Eph 5:2 Walk in love, even as Christ also loved you, and gave himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling fragrance.
Eph 5:3 But sexual immorality, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not even be mentioned among you, as becomes saints;
Eph 5:4 nor filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not appropriate; but rather giving of thanks.
Eph 5:5 Know this for sure, that no sexually immoral person, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and God.
Eph 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words. For because of these things, the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience.
Eph 5:7 Therefore don't be partakers with them.
Eph 5:8 For you were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord. Walk as children of light,
Eph 5:9 for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth,
Eph 5:10 proving what is well pleasing to the Lord.
Eph 5:11 Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them.
Eph 5:12 For the things which are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of.
Eph 5:13 But all things, when they are reproved, are revealed by the light, for everything that reveals is light.
Eph 5:14 Therefore he says, "Awake, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
Eph 5:15 Therefore watch carefully how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise;
Eph 5:16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

We need to commit ourselves to living purely and oppose those who propose removing God from our society. Now is the time to really see the need to have the light of Christ shine through us to our nation; for us to realize the absolute necessity of this before its too late. Now means now, not some vague future date. Be what you are meant to be; a light to the world and hope for those who don't see God at all. This has changed individuals and nations in the past and can do it again. Let the light shine!
