You either choose Christ, or another 'god' will be given to you.
Meaning: don't for a second think that somebody hasn't moulded your beliefs already. You will either be aware of it, or oblivious. In this case, you
appear to not realise that you are running from the only One who Saves.
"For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men--the testimony given in
its proper time." 1 Timothy 2:5-6
I want the government to give me no god. If I want one, I will follow one...otherwise, I won't. But why does the government feel the need to
institute statements that are not correct for their people
Such as, In God we trust.
Many don't trust in a god.
Most do mind you, but many don't.
They trust instead in personal responsibility.
Even God believers also accept personal responsibility for at least parts of their life.
So, wouldn't it be better than for the government to push the "personal responsibility" that encompasses at least some aspects of all citizens,
verses the god thing which diminishes a number of people (be it those whom trust in several gods, or none).
Would also pave the way for a movement of responsibility verses denial of responsibility (god/devil made me do it).
And, on a personal note...you are of the religious type...do you personally believe your religion needs state sponsorship in order to be popular? If
no, then are you insulted that thats the ultimate message being placed in the US, and if yes, then why won't the message itself ring true to enough
