There has been some discussion on whether the Constitution is a Christian document.
Short answer, not at this time….and the reason being is simple, in the beginning when the constitution was originally written those who would run for any high position office in the country had to be Christian and actually declare themselves loyal to Jesus Christ and the Bible, they would actually swear to that by what was called their Oath to Office.
Soon enough there were those that didn’t prescribe to the Christian way and said we don’t agree with the terms. Those heading up the opposition were the primarily the Jews who were now weaseling their way into the politics of the country and as we all know they are not Bible believers and definitely not followers of Christ.
So it didn’t take long for them to have the Oaths of Office struck from the wording of the Federal and State Constitutions or at least the thought of it done away with. What does this mean now….well, those that run for any high political office can be atheist, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Homosexuals, pretty much any type of humanist viewpoint that exist today. Their lifestyle can be degraded and offensive and it doesn’t matter they will be the person who rules over you and I and we have nothing to say about it. Is it any wonder why the country is heading down the wrong path morally and spiritually when those running the show are worse then the people they represent?
Some history about the Oaths of office….written my Ted Weiland who runs a website that shows that our constitution is anything but Godly today.
Mission to Israel is the website that Ted has to explain what is going on with the topic.
Elimination of religious test oaths in Constitution.
Now anyone could run for office.
The phrase “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States” can only be understood within the historical context of the States’ religious test oaths:
State constitutions enacted during the war [for independence] commonly required test oaths for holding public office. Only Protestants could hold public office in New Jersey or sit in the legislatures of Georgia, South Carolina, and New Hampshire, and only those professing “the Christian religion” could hold public office in Maryland or serve in high government positions in Massachusetts. North Carolina limited public office to those who believed in God, the truth of the Protestant religion, and divine authority of both the Old and New Testaments…. Before taking their seats, Pennsylvania legislators had to declare: “I do believe in one God, the creator and governor of the universe, the rewarder of the good and the punisher of the wicked. And I do acknowledge the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine inspiration.” Delaware went further by requiring all office holders to profess belief in the Trinity and the divine inspiration of the Bible.25
The religious oaths of Vermont and Massachusetts are typical of the Christian test oaths at the time of the Constitutional Convention:
The State of Vermont’s Constitution, Section IX: A quorum of the house of representatives … shall, each of them, before they proceed to business, take and subscribe, as well the oath of fidelity and allegiance herein after directed, as the following oath or affirmation, viz. I _________ do solemnly swear, by the ever living God, (or, I do solemnly affirm in the presence of Almighty God) that as a member of this assembly, I will not propose or assent to any bill, vote, or resolution, which shall appear to me injurious to the people…. And each member, before he takes his seat, shall make and subscribe the following declaration, viz. I do believe in one God, the Creator and Governor of the universe, the rewarder of the good and punisher of the wicked. And I do acknowledge the scriptures of the old and new testament to be given by divine inspiration, and own and profess the protestant religion.
The State of Massachusetts’ Constitution: I, __________, do declare, that I believe the christian religion, and have a firm persuasion of its truth….
Because Article 6 outlaws the Christian test oaths required by early State constitutions, it bans all Biblical qualifications, particularly Deuteronomy 17:15:
Thou shalt in any wise set him king [leader] over thee, whom YHWH thy God shall choose…. (Deuteronomy 17:15)26
John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, said the following regarding Christian leadership:
Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.
The end of Morality 1788
The Constitution removed religious test oaths as judicial requirements for judges and officers of the new national government. This, in and of itself, delivered the republic into the hands of the humanists. Nothing else was necessary after that. From that point on, the secularization of America; was a mopping-up operation. This operation is still in progress. Those being mopped up are unappreciative, but they cannot seem to identify when the turning point came. It came in 1788.
