“And Your Money Says in God We Trust” (CACN, Fall 2000)
Posted on 20 February, 2015
This issue (no. 31), like the previous (Wint, 1999), was small (two pages, rather than twelve). The title was inspired by a Larry Norman song of prophetic lamentation. We inveighed against the Abortion President whom we hold, even today, in greater disdain than we do the communist ideologue currently in office. Clinton was a hedonist, who put his personal decadent pleasures above any political ideals. As such has earned the greater scorn. But, it is acknowledged, He has not answered our imprecatory prayers.
The passing of the Y2K scare found us both relieved and disappointed. The nation is well deserving of a good spanking from On High. And yet, without His grace, we, Adam’s sin-ridden descendants would not even have been born.
We proclaim, again, that the foundation of civil law must be the Law of God as the Scriptures affirm (Rom. 13:1-7; Eph. 1:22; Col. 1:16). Reference is made to the colonial constitutions and legislatures as precedents (p. 1).
With the federal court seizing the property of Indiana Baptism Temple, we note that “We have come a long from a time wen the colonies taxed their citizens to support the established church” (p. 2).
O “I have a dream.” I see “a governor issuing an executive order. I see him shutting down the abortuaries in his state and enforcing the longstanding statutes which outlaw homosexual acts” (p. 2)
We commend Matt Trewhella and Mercy Seat Christian Church in Milwaukee for their “sustained confrontation and resistance to tyranny” and anticipate his attendance at the upcoming White Rose Banquet (p. 2).
