The primary reason why Muslim ISIS, or any other enemy, can be a threat to America is because we have turned our back on God – our Creator, and Author of our sacred liberties (see my last blog). 

All nations that forget God shall be turned into hell (Psalm 9:17).

The much debated question is: Was America founded as a Christian nation; and is Jesus Christ the Author of America’s freedoms?

Answer:  In the year 1892 the United States Supreme Court gave this response following months of research:

        Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.

On July 8, 1776 the Continental Congress read the Declaration of Independence publicly, as the famous Liberty Bell was rung. Congress then established a three man committee, consisting of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin, for the purpose of designing a great seal for the United States.  Benjamin Franklin suggested for a seal and motto of this new nation:

        Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.

In more contemporary times, former President Herbert Hoover stated in 1943:

        The whole inspiration of our civilization springs from the teachings of Christ and the lessons of the prophets. To read the Bible for these fundamentals is a necessity of American life.

J. Edgar Hoover, the American director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), explained:

       The criminal is the product of spiritual starvation. Someone failed miserably to bring him to know God, love Him and serve Him.

CONCLUSION: The above quotes are but a few of similar quotations of hundreds of great men beginning with America’s Founding Fathers.  That Christian spirit and conviction is the essence of our Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution, both under relentless attack today. In fact, the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence, signed by all 56 delegates, reads:

        We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created [ie, did not evolve – ed] equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness… .

The Preamble to Constitution, in stating it’s purpose,  recites:

and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity… .

The Constitution concludes:

        Done in convention by the Unanimous consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty seven…

SO,  in answer to the opening question:

What IS America doing to itself?

She is betraying Christ and thus is committing suicide. As such, by default America’s fathers and mothers are sentencing their children and grandchildren to lives of unspeakable misery,  suffering,  and hell-on-earth.

What to do will be the subject of upcoming blogs.
