Removal of Crosses

More and more trying to remove Christianity

Removing crosses from the highways in Utah and removal of veterans cross in the Mojave Desert in California. Removal of Nativity scenes from businesses and government offices; removal of the phrase ‘in Jesus name’ from prayers: more and more our government is trying to remove Christianity and anything that appears to resemble Christianity across the whole country. They’re claiming it violates Article 1 of the Constitution. Well what about the Mosques that are springing up everywhere? Is this not showing the establishment of the Islam religion; or when our own president embraces his own Muslim religion and refutes Christianity? I know, today he said he’s Christian, but where are his ‘fruits’, or proof of his claims? The Bible says, “By their ‘fruits’ ye shall know them.”

we Christians need to re-read Ephesians 6 and clothe ourselves in the ‘whole armor of God’

I think it’s about time we Christians re-read Ephesians 6 and begin to clothe ourselves in the ‘whole armor of God’ so that ‘we may be able to stand against all the fiery darts’ being hurled at us just because of what and how we choose to believe. Parents aren’t taking their kids to church anymore in America, they don’t even go themselves except maybe at Easter and/or Christmas for their gift bags of fruit and candy and then they wonder, “What in the world is going on?”

Another observance for example, all other presidents have honored the Boy Scouts of America at their national jamboree in Washington, but not Mr Obama. He went instead to a dinner honoring the Muslims (likewise a religion). Also, when a Boy Scout attains the rank of Eagle Scout it is considered a high honor nationally, even internationally and in the past the president or highest-ranking leader of the nation of residence signs the recipient’s certificate. But not in America, and not this year; Barack Obama refused to sign the certificates thereby dishonoring those having achieved the high honor of Eagle Scout. He didn’t want to anger the homosexual bunch that he favors I guess.

Kids appear to be just another deduction

Young people are prohibited from praying before sporting events, or at graduation exercises. And the parents are wringing their hands when little Johnny is caught with drugs or has been beating up by one of his friends or classmates. And what about little Mary, ending up pregnan. The parents say, “we give our children everything they want”; well, what about your time… do parents even spend 5 minutes a day asking ‘what all happened in school’, like they even care? Parents today are too busy; they don’t know how or don’t want to raise their own children... They would rather someone else did it? Kids anymore appear to be just another deduction on their parent’s income tax form each year.

we can’t even recognize the signs all around us –

The American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU has become our governments ‘watch dog’ threatening lawsuits at the mere mention of Jesus or God and any semblance of Christianity will bring instant rebuttal or restraint. Where was the ACLU during 9-11, surely they would stand up against the barbaric actions of the extremist… NOT A WORD! What is happening to America we ask? Just as if we didn’t know or have ever heard; or, we can’t even recognize the signs all around us –. “there will be wars and rumors of war, earthquakes in different places…” or Luke 21:25-28 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth, distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Wake up America…

Impressive. Signs of the endtime, I do believe.When I first got in church in Dec.1969,I used to look toward the eastern sky wondering when when He would split the eastern sky. It's time to look to the eastern sky !

I don't know what I would do if I didn't know the Lord. He is our only hope in these last days.

thanks Judicastro, I can remember some 60 years ago now, there were crosses stationed along the highways in this area; large, concrete crosses and on one side it said something like "Jesus is coming soon" and on the other side said, "Jesus is the Answer"; but they were removed many years ago. Now we have to watch what we say for fear we might offend someone. I know God does not need our help, but I can't help but believe that modern day America grieves God for all He's done for us. By answered prayers and His watch care and then we as a nation shun Him.

Great hub. What is happening in America nowadays is a strong sign that we are in the endtimes where there is a great trend away from Christ and His truth.Truly we should remain true to our blessed hope. Thank you for bringing this into light. Surely the King is coming. Blessings and Maranatha.

Judicastro: satan can remove crosses, the name of Jesus, any reference of God or Jesus from whereever, BUT there is one place he can never remove it from and that is from the minds, hearts, souls, and spirits of Those who love God and Jesus. Our love and dedication to God will burn brightly as the light in a lighthouse declaring God lives.

Brother Dave.

Yes it seems with each generation our morals are compromised! In the court system, our world is changing as we know it, almost daily...most us have no idea the extent of the new laws being passed!

Of course, we all know Obama is a liar, so why should we believe him when he says he's a Christian? His actions speak volumes.

Indeed! "Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus."

This is hard to chew..but then it seems everthing that has Obama's stamp on it is hard to chew..If my hope were not in Jesus this would set panic in my heart, but since Jesus is my hope I know that one day Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is LORD - Even Obama - Even Muslim extremists...

thanks coffeesnob, for your friendship, your visit and your inspiring comments. I agree, Jesus is the only answer for all of lifes' woes. Keeping our eyes fixed on His 'finished' work and resting on the promises contained in His word makes it all worth while...

I agree with you Samson we are in the end times- pre tribulation pains. My church and I am sure other ones too are getting visions of a coming famine- coming soon, along with war in the USA- that will kill a lot of people- the bombing and destruction of everything that bears a Judeo & Christian symbols-the churches and such.While this is on the way to the USA it(the gross darkness/demons will cover and dominate all other countries also.

The heat of oppression is coming to the USA- only those that call on the Lord and say of the LORD,“He is my refuge and my fortress,my God, in whom I trust.” will be delivered and protected from all that is coming. Now is the time to draw close to God. Do not stray from God or his leading for nothing- WE HAVE A JOB TO DO- A CALL TO FULFILL.

Well done page- Thanks
