No God On Money

I want to change The National Mint printing presses, to change ALL CURRENCY, in the United States to read "not in god we trust" anymore...... I want it to say "IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WE PUT OUR TRUST" How about you?

matthew - my thought is that you speak from a position of fear. And Britains and Americans have a lot to fear. But in Christ we do not live or react from fear.
Our enenmies need Christ as much or more then we did. The antedote to terrorism or Islam is Christ and how will they hear if one doesn't go to them?

The picture on our currency is a distraction form the work at hand.

Matthew "Muslims have members (doctors) who in England bombed hospitals"
Actually they didn't bomb hospitals, but targeted the public generally. Still, they were and still are evil.

Matthew "Catholics allow their priests to abuse children"
Sadly, yes this has been allowed in the past, but also this has happened in non-Catholic denominations as well.
I belonged once to a fundamentalist Bible class which was run by paedophiles, who were protected by the national group to which it belonged.
I was not pretty enough for them so escaped their attention. & did not notice what was going on until later.

Catherine, I just can't believe that we can make this nation right by allowing the wicked to roam amoung us. Catholics allow their priests to abuse children. Muslims have members (doctors) who in England bombed hospitals. Someday it will happen here. We must separate ourselves from the sinners, both by word and deed. Isn't that what conservative Chrsitain movement is all about? This is not a time for uncertainty or hyprocrisy. The end times are near.

Jesus said, "In the last days, men will say, 'Here is the Christ, or here.'"
That's all I need to know to understand why so many are demanding Mohmmed, Allah et al, be thought of, in the same way as the ONE Risen Lord.
When Buddha, Mohammed, Hare Krsina, et al, rise from their graves, then (only THEN) will I entertain the notion that they have any equality with the Lord, Who has raised me from deathbeds....not only in 1971, but also in 1974, 1997 and 1999.

I do not know if anyone has heard of the ACLJ, but they fight for christians rights, and there is an athiest that has actually went to the Supreme court to try to have "In God we trust removed off of our currency. Has anyone heard about this case? I know that this athiest has the ACLU behind him.

For goodness sakes matthew that is a no good idea of yours either. That is not the answer. All God's people want, is freedoms just like the wicked man has. To serve the true God. To obey the true God without threats of imprisonment or death. Any sane person can get that.

I heard a preacher a few years ago who said that if anyone was truly offended by the motto "In God we trust" on their money he wanted to help. "Just put it all in a big bag and mail it to me at P. O. Box..." He was just jesting, of course. But it tells us the true depth of most of those "offended" by the Christian history of this nation. (Not a "Christian nation," but we do have a strongly Christian history.)

I agree with you Whisper. In fact I think we should make this a completely non-secular, Christain nation and then deport all Muslims, Jews, and Catholics along with all the illegal Mexicans.
---matthew on 9/28/07

Never will I pay homage to a FAKE god. And Allah is a fake god. I am with you, whisper. To be perfectly honest I am not overly concern in whether or not I am offending the muslems. Noone these days seems to not think twice in offending my true God. I believe if your idea on the money took ahold it would make Jesus Christ extrememly happy. If only.
---catherine on 9/28/07

I asked this, because Muslims that are living in the U.S. are saying that they are offended, and they want Americans to start calling God, Allah. Sickening but true. You all make good points, However I feel that there is a sense of complacency among Christians as "just accepting the "evil" laws of the land and not making a stand for the Trinity for which our country was founded when Pilgrims left England because of Religious persecution and set up church at Plymouth Rock.

Whisper: (1)

Remember that Jesus clearly distinguished the sacred from the secular (and said they were both OK) when he tooked the coin with Caesar's head on it and said "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, but unto God what is God's" (Matthew 22:21, Mark 12:17, Luke 20:25)

Whisper: (2)

The Kingdom of God is NOT of this earth, if it were, Jesus would have accepted the crown, but he did not. The purposes of secular government will NEVER coincide with those of the Church. We should not deceive people into believing they are the same by putting warm and fuzzy religious slogans on our money.

In fact, it is this very kind of unifying of religious worship and money which the Beast of Revelation employs (Rev. 13)
---StrongAxe on 9/28/07

Whisper, that is a wonderful idea, but you know if that was to happen you will have many people around objecting that those words, though they are true, are unconstitutional. Anything that has to do with God , many in this world do not want anything to do with it. But I agree with you Whisper, great idea!
---Cynthia on 9/27/07

It might look nice. But it would be completely inaccurate. As a nation we do not "trust in God." In a sense, you could say our current currency fosters a lie. Sad commentary, but, true commentary.
---ed_the_other_one on 9/27/07

There was a movement to put "IN GOD WE TRUST" on the currency of the US during the term of Teddy Roosevelt. He was against it, saying that such words should be uttered only with the utmost of gravity and reverence. To put them on items of common use, such as money, was to cheapen them and use God's name lightly.

Furthermore, Whisper, like it or not, not everybody in the USA is a Christian.

Moreover, in the Treaty of Tripoli, the US said IN SO MANY WORDS that "the government of the United States is not in any way founded on the Christian religion."

Deal with it.
---Jack on 9/27/07

While I agree with you, it will never happen. There is too many differences on religions. As soon as that is put on the currency, people will complain and whine about their beliefs.
---Rebecca_D on 9/27/07

Whisper, You're flogging a dead horse there,you don't have a snowball's chance of changing it! Originally it was "In Gold we trust" they dropped the "L" which seems much better.
