Why Government and God Do Mix

Continuously, those who walk in darkness speak of a need for separation of church and state when conversing about policies and political decisions that have an effect on all of our lives. They cite the American Constitution’s call for a separation of church and state, which always commands the immediate response from one who walks in the light of, “What page of the Constitution would I find such a call for the separation of church and state?” Of course, this question always produces a pause or some sort of hesitation, because anyone who has studied the American Constitution knows that the phrase “separation of church and state” is nowhere to be found within the document.

Those that cry for a wall to be erected between the institutions of church and state make a grave mistake in judgement by deeming such a division to be necessary. A leader who does not allow his or her faith to have an effect on how he or she governs will not be an effective one. An immoral leader is an ineffective leader, because God removes His favor and hedge of protection from nations that refuse to follow His standards of righteousness. It follows that an immoral leader would lead his or her nation in a direction that is unpleasing to God.

An absence of influence by God’s people on the leadership of a nation virtually guarantees the existence of a rogue state guided by a moral compass that uses relativism as a standard for guidance rather than patiently trusting in the beams of the Original Light, who is the Great I Am. The book of First John in The Holy Bible says that “God is light, in Him is no darkness at all.”

God abhors sin. It follows that a nation that has erected a wall between worship of God and its governing bodies, has indeed erected a wall between the state and the Almighty, and has become a Godless nation. God warns us as He did Israel through the prophet Isaiah, “I’m sending my fury against a godless nation, and I’ll command him against the people with whom I’m angry to seize loot and snatch plunder, and to trample them down like mud in the streets.”

Those so called conservatives who have sought economic prosperity over Godly principles as the most important reason to choose a leader for our nation have received their repeated warnings. Judgement is coming, and soon.
