49% ERS

A whooping 49% of the Yale Law students agreed that religion is “not too important or not at all important” in their lives, compared with 16% of Americans who agreed with them in a national poll.

Only 26% of Yale Law students said religion is “very important” in their lives, compared to 56% of Americans nationally.

In the Senate about half are lawyers and they make the law of the land we must abide by. In the house only 36% are lawyers. One might surmise from this that most of the Congressmen do not understand the legalese of the documents they vote on and in many cases they never read them. The voting record reveals that most voting is along party lines with only an occasional rebel.

With the empowerment of judges being given the authority to make laws and the Supreme Court being filled with justices who see the constitution as being, “A work in process,” we can expect many rights of the Christians being eroded.

Today we as Christians need to have a clear, defensible understanding of what our Christian rights are. We are and will continue to be under attack by other faiths, atheists and in some instances even from within the Christian community itself.

You can’t defend what you don’t understand. This land started to be settled around 1500 AD, but it was almost 300 years later before the constitution was put in place. Due to the fact that most immigrants were from Western Europe and the religion at the time was Christianity, other sects were not considered to be part of the religious equation. Because there were many varying sects of Christianity in America it was required that to be fair to all. There could be preference to none and with that background the first amendment was penned and ratified.

First amendment; “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Those men who signed the Constitution, virtually had no idea that America would ever be the conglomerate of religions we have today. Rather it was addressing the different branches of Christianity, and protection from such as the Church of England and Roman Catholicism, not the multiplicity of sects we have today.

Nevertheless all sects have their right to exist according to the first amendment and promulgate their beliefs as long as they do not violate other provisions of the document.

In order to protect the Christian rights of Americans the law makers must have a strong faith in Jesus Christ. The only way to insure this is for Christians to receive law degrees and enter the political arena where the laws are made, interpreted and applied.

Your only alternative is to vote for those who place their faith in Jesus Christ.
