THE SEPARATION OF TRUTH AND STATE
Coach Dave Daubenmire
May 1, 2008
Does it make me un-American if I tell you that I don’t believe hardly anything I hear from our government anymore?
Daily, our government is becoming more and more removed from the will of the people. I want to gag every time I hear one of our elected officials start pontificating on what “the American people want.” They are so removed from the people that they really have no idea, and they really don’t care what the American people want.
Just for starters, would you agree with me that the American people want:
Less government intrusion in our lives.
• Lower energy prices that could be remedied by drilling for oil.
• To choose for themselves where their children go to school.
• The borders closed.
• Our taxes lowered.
• The end to the government nanny state.
Every one of those “wants” could be accomplished except for one small problem. That is not what the politicians desire. Somewhere along the line our Constitutional Republic morphed from government of the people, by the people, and for the people, to an all encompassing monster that lives to eat the people and the fruits of their labors!
It will not get any better anytime soon.
Hillary is a Clinton. Need I say more? She is the most disingenuous politician to ever step onto the American scene. She and her husband once claimed a tax deduction for donating used underwear.
Obama is of the same ilk. His own pastor even accused him of not saying what he really believed. “He's a politician. I'm a pastor. We speak to two different audiences. And he says what he has to say as a politician. I say what I have to say as a pastor.” Funny, isn’t it? Even his pastor won’t use the word…liar.
McCain? Well, he is McCain! I guess we really do get the leaders that we deserve.
I have a theory on how all of this has happened. While they have had all of us scrabbling over the removal of the 10 Commandments in public buildings, the lack of morality in our populace, and the degenerating condition of our public schools, we have once again missed the real agenda.
You see it is not really about religion. The battle really isn’t about Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, or the non-constitutional “separation between the church and state.”
No, my friends, it isn’t about prayer in schools, or Bibles in schools, about Christmas Carols or the Pledge of Allegiance, nor about homosexuals or metrosexuals. The battle in America is over one issue. And it is an issue that we are all going to have to come to grips with – hopefully sooner, rather than later.
The only way that they would have been able to pull this off was to wrap the debate in an American flag. It is not the Church that the state has been afraid of. It is the Truth that has caused them such a headache. For over 60 years they have screamed about the separation between the Church and the state. But that was a fog; a smokescreen, if you will.
What they didn’t want to deal with was Truth. That is what the battle has been over.
The separation between the TRUTH AND THE STATE is what they were after. It wasn’t religion they had to remove. It was the Truth that stood in the way.
“Truth has fallen in the streets.” They told us truth was relative, and that ethics were “situational.” They chided our children, “don’t judge,” and chastised those who did. They removed from the school house wall the scales by which all morality was weighed and soon everyone was doing “what was right in their own eyes.”
“If it feels good do it. Tune-in, turn-on, drop-out. Go for the gusto. You only pass this way once. Live and let live. Go for it. You deserve it. Did God really say that? Everyone lies about sex…”
We are a nation of liars. We expect lying from our leaders. They don’t even blush.
We hire teachers to teach us lies and elected politicians to tell us lies. We pay them to teach lies, tell lies, so we can believe lies. Lies make us feel better.
How else can you explain what is being taught to our children in our schools with our permission and dollars?
But it didn’t start there. It started in the ivory towers of academia first. Communism, masquerading as liberalism, snuck into positions of authority. Communism is a God-less system of government where absolute Truth does not exist. Right and wrong was no longer defined by the God of the Bible, but by public opinion, or worse yet, the university-trained terrorists in black robes.
With the Christian God and His unmovable standards out of the way, the God-haters were able to manipulate the minds of the people to accept things their Forefathers would have found reprehensible. From their control of the educational system they were able to launch a new era of endarkenment sold to the masses as “progressive.” The only thing progressive was the evil it ushered in. As the light retreated back into the four walls of the Church the darkness blew in with a spiritual devastation rivaling Hurricane Katrina. We began to call good evil and evil good. Woe is flooding the land.
We are left with a moral-wasteland where citizens are asked to vote for leaders that we know are corrupt. Listen hard to what our first Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay said: “Providence has given our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
And this: “Whether our religion permits Christians to vote for infidel rulers is a question which merits more consideration than it seems yet to have generally received either from the clergy or the laity. It appears to me that what the prophet said to Jehoshaphat about his attachment to Ahab ["Shouldest thou help the ungodly and love them that hate the Lord?" 2 Chronicles 19:2] affords a salutary lesson.”
I wonder what John Jay thought about the separation between the Church and the state?
Those who hate God hate His Truth. To change America they had to change the standards. We let them sandblast His Truth out of our nation. Pillar by pillar, law by law, church by church they have changed America from a foundation built on the Rock to a nation slowly being submerged in the residue of the chips of the foundation they destroyed.
Noah Webster warned us. “Let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God [Exodus 18:21]. . . . If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted . . . If our government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”
Evil men now rule America. Hosea declared, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Look at the America we are leaving our children.
“Separation of church and state, separation of church and state” the goats bleat every time the Christian God and his standards are mentioned. But it is not the Church they are afraid of. No, my friends, it is not the Church. Again, it is the Truth they must change.
Does it seem like we are losing freedom in America? We have let them change the standards. It is Jesus they want removed. Not Buddha, not Mohammed, not environmentalism. The Truth brings freedom, lies bring bondage. Are we truly free?

The commies said they wanted a “separation between the church and the state.” But even that was a lie. It was the Truth they had to destroy. Lies rule the day. WE let them separate the Truth from the state and the people have lost their way.
