I have noticed a bit of controversy over the words "In God We Trust" being on our money, etc... etc...

Well today I came across this photo, which pretty much summed up the argument for me, and it's another goal for we who believe there should be a separation of church and state.




debate over?

It won't go anywhere, the federal reserve is a private business and is not subject to the rules of seperation of church and state.

I personally think it should be removed because it's an insult to god. They should also remove a good bit of the people they have on the money, because some of them were dead set against any such system and it's an insult to them. Franklin, Jackson and Jefferson would be insulted for sure, and probably a few others. I think they put them on the money as trophies for "winning" rather than for tribute.

Franklin said it was the central bank of England that caused the revolutionary war. Jackson called them a den of vipers and was able to kill the bank during his time(thanks to 2 misfires on the assassins gun). Etc.

The entire system itself is based on interest, or as the bible calls it - "usury", and Jesus calls them thieves as well(money changers).

There are many bible quotes about these types of systems. The current monetary system has been deemed "Bad" for thousands of years.



Ezekiel 18

8He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man,

9Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.

...

13 He lends at usury and takes excessive interest. Will such a man live? He will not! Because he has done all these detestable things, he will surely be put to death and his blood will be on his own head.

...

17 He withholds his hand from sin and takes no usury or excessive interest. He keeps my laws and follows my decrees. He will not die for his father's sin; he will surely live.


...

Ezekiel 22:12 In you men accept bribes to shed blood; you take usury and excessive interest and make unjust gain from your neighbors by extortion. And you have forgotten me, declares the Sovereign LORD.


So, it's a huge insult to put "In God we Trust" on the money, which is really nothing but bribes and usury.

But because the federal reserve is not part of the government, they will have no case at all. They can put whatever they want on things, same as any other private company.

Look at that, the bible is on your side.

you're absolutely right about that, it is insulting to them, and i never really thought about that before, thanks for pointing it out.

Debate=Over.

Not many people realize "In God we Trust" was such a recent event.

to elucidate a bit more on the actual divine purpose of America, and the future of humankind in a very union-with-god type of way.
