In pre-election debates, the economy was highlighted by both candidates. Not too surprising!
What is surprising is how few people, including many politicians, realize the most crucial problems have to do with moral values.
Our news is full of sex scandals, financial scams and questionable political deals. Yet we fail to see the connection that o economy is the way it is, because of weak moral values, greed, and dishonesty.
The economy is related to biblical values.
The result has been government thievery, excessive debt, and theft from those who’re not yet born—your children and grandchildren.
Any nation that borrows money just to pay its interest, is not a principled country. It’s stealing—from the next generation.
Moral uprightness! We need more of that!
After intimidating communication from the ACLU, a school official from an academy in South Carolina prohibited students from performing “Joy to the World” and “O, Come All Ye Faithful” even after rehearsals had begun. Alliance Defending Freedom sent the school a letter on behalf of concerned parents, the school looked into it and reversed the ban. They’d gotten a better understanding of what the First Amendment permits and protects.
A lot of myths we believe about the lack of religious freedom in public education just aren’t true.
Gratefully, Alliance Defending Freedom has put together a Christmas and Public Schools MYTH/Fact Sheet for students and parents. Download a copy here.
You don’t have to leave your faith at home this Christmas!
It’s unconstitutional for public schools to call your child’s upcoming school break a “Christmas holiday.” Fact or myth?
It’s a “myth!” Just one of seven on Alliance Defending Freedom’s “Fact Sheet” of Christmas and Public Schools Myths.
The fact is: The Supreme Court has acknowledged the government’s long-standing recognition of holidays with religious significance. Christmas certainly being one of them.
Congress has even proclaimed Christmas to be a legal public holiday!
Much of what we, as parents, often believe about religious freedom in public education, simply isn’t true. Students have more freedom to express their faith on campus than you, or they, realize!
It’s time to get the facts!

You’ll be told that students are not allowed to sing religious Christmas carols in public schools.
The fact is: During school activities like choir, or Christmas programs, students can sing religious carols along with secular ones—without offending the Constitution!
It is true, however, that school districts across the country often prohibit students from exercising these rights based on a false view of the law.

Democrat or Republican? Whose side is God on?
Let’s go to the Old Testament book of Joshua.
He encountered a representative of God called the “Captain of the Host” and Joshua asked, “Whose side are you on?”
The Captain of the Host said, “I didn’t come here to take sides; I came here to take over.”
I’m in a political party, but it’s only because it’s the place I can best serve God at this time.
I live in the State, in the City that I do because I think I can best serve Jesus right here.
I’m in my occupation as a pastor because I think I can best serve Jesus there.
Is God a Democrat? Is He a Republican? Whose side is He on?
We’re asking the wrong questions.
The issue is not whose side God is on—the question is: Whose side are you on?
Why are some of us so silent about the issues facing this country?
Last year, the Barna Group released results of a survey showing that—people who call themselves Conservatives do not speak up for what they believe. And it isn’t because they’re afraid.
It’s because they don’t know how to make a biblical case for their convictions.
Can we agree that our nation is in trouble?
That we have deep problems. Debt, waste, fraud, abuse. Our national security in question. Civil discourse in government almost gone.
And yet we still hear that old cliché: “Politics and religion do not mix.”
The Bible speaks to every important issue of life.
We need to be well versed in all that it says!
Not to be more political, but to be more biblical! To be Well Versed!
