Symbols or no Symbols , is that the real issue?

The last couple of years weve seen Court Cases deciding whether or not one can have religious symbols on public or village property. One town is told by the courts it can have its crche displayed on village property, while another town is told it can't have a cross on public property. Is there more to this than meets the eye?

To me, these symbols represent God. For there is only one God, according to His Word: the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I believe that those in our land that want these symbols of the Lord removed are actually saying that they want the Lord out of our country.

The Hebrew Scriptures plainly show that when the Jewish people were following God and obeying Him, they lived in peace and harmony and were blessed. The times that they got into deep trouble as a people and nation is when they forsook the Lord: doing their own thing.

This country has been blessed by God because it was founded on Judeo/Christian principles. People feared God and lived their lives according to God's word. Today in America, like many other nations, we see a great falling away from God, causing hell to break loose in peoples lives and their nations.

Psalm 9:17

"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all nations that forget God."

Psalm 33:12

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance."

Psalm 24:1-2

"The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods."

Psalm 118:8-9

"It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in princes."

Wake up America, there has never been, or will ever be a country that has trusted in itself, being its own god, doing what it wants to do, that hasnt been in a state of rebellion, confusion and turmoil. America, be tolerant of one another, and let us all turn our hearts toward God. Let the Lord be Lord of our lives and country. Jeremiah 30:17 - "for I will restore health unto thee and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord."
