LAND OF THE FREE founded by those escaping religious persecution….?????
National Day of Prayer instituted by the religious community. National is about as public as one can imagine.
Gift (Matthew) 6:5 when thou prayest, thous shalt not be as the hypocrites are; for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen men. Verily I say unto you. They have their reward”
The mass numbers believe that God answers prayer. What God have we been praying to in this so called land of the free?
This so called Christian nation, US makes up only 5% of the planet’s population. 25%, 1 out of every 4 are incarcerated in prisons across the land at a cost of billions of dollars per year. Why because they have supposedly broken some law that man put on the books.
That leaves 4%; but almost 1% of the remaining are serving in the military the war. Why?…. war is basic premise of religions…we must be afraid of and get rid of other that does not agree with…….
That leaves about 3% not imprisoned nor serving in the military……most of those would be children; most under the age of 13; because a large portion of our young people are already in prison. Or the elderly, many of whom are incarcerated in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living homes, etc.
If God answers prayer….what God is being prayed to that would give us what we are praying for….and who is praying for people to be imprisoned or else be soldiers…..that’s right soldiers of the cross….
The reward of the prayers being offered up in this nation,seems to be imprisonment of those who dare to break the religious rules set down; not by those escaping religious persecution but those that are hell bent on persecuting at home and abroad.
What is wrong with this picture? We profess to be the greatest nation on earth……great at what….imprisoning, killing each other….. public officials praying in governmental positions and demanding that the rest of the people agree with that religious conclusion….
