Contrary to popular American mythology, things like Bibles and Ten Commandments monuments make lousy (and particularly blasphemous) lucky rabbits’ feet.
When we use them as superstitious icons and trinkets of protection – as we routinely do here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA – we aren’t proclaiming our fidelity to God and we certainly aren’t honoring God. We’re actually heaping additional judgment upon our heads and begging for His wrath upon us. (See: Why treating God like Charlie Brown’s mom is a really bad idea.)
When we sprinkle Bibles or Ten Commandments plaques around our openly anti-Christian, State-run schools and government complexes, such religious trinkets do not somehow magically transform those wildly unbiblical institutions into something God-honoring or good. The main thing that these superstitious icons accomplish is the clear revelation of our disinterest in applying what those Bibles and Commandments command. (See: Well color me satanic and call me America! (Or: How our cherished tolerance for false gods is killing us.).)
By taking this religious/superstitious trinket approach to God and His Word, we’ve demonstrated in a uniquely powerful and blasphemous manner that we know that His Word exists…and we just don’t care.
Oh, we care enough to keep it around for its ornamental value. But as the means by which we actually understand and pursue life in detail? Not so much.
We’re gonna do things our way.
We’re gonna do children’s education our way.
We’re gonna do economics and business our way.
We’re gonna do law and justice and civil government our way.
Besides, so long as we get our tickets to heaven punched by claiming Jesus as Lord with our lips, what’s all the fuss? Why stress about actually doing what Jesus has commanded? (See: If we love Him, we will keep His commandments.)
“We the people” have the “right” to do what we think is best ’round here, and it’ll all work out in the end, ’cause, um…we’re ‘Merica! (See: Who owns America? (Hint: Not “We the People”.)
So what if our economic foundation is wildly unbiblical and is therefore being purposefully used to lead us into ever-increasing subjugation and slavery to the American Corporate State? (See: Fiat $lavery: We have been bought and paid for…with nothing.)
So what if our legal and political foundations are wildly unbiblical and are therefore being used to lead us deeper and deeper into the hell of full-blown Statism and the total loss of true freedom, liberty and privacy? (See: Privacy is for masters. Transparency is for slaves. Welcome to “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.)
So what if our military and foreign policy foundations are so flagrantly anti-Christian that they are being successfully used to lead us into perpetual war overseas while justifying the perpetual loss of freedom at home? (See: Problem>Reaction>Solution – Why we will beg to have our freedoms taken away and go to war forever.)
So what if our foundations for business and work are so thoroughly unbiblical that even most hard working Americans are increasingly dependent upon the American Corporate State and obedient Christians are being increasingly persecuted into silence and submission to that American State’s pro-gay, anti-Christian agenda? (See: Corporate America’s Big Gay Push (Or: “Mark of the Beast” economics, here we come!))
So what if our foundation for civil government is so perverse and radically unbiblical that “we the people” are no longer even allowed to own homes here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA? (See: Why home ownership will never be allowed in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.)
So what if our American concepts of “freedom”, “liberty”, “truth”, “justice” and even “life” itself are so self-servingly vile and rank that we are able to – in the name of freedom and liberty – abide by the open, systematic mass murder of our own children, sacrificed by the tens-of-millions on the twin altars of convenience and profit? (See: 51,000,003 reasons why America owes Nazi Germany an apology.)
How obvious should things be at this point?
How glaring are the consequences of our rebellion against the content of the Law and Bibles that we freely and superstitiously sprinkle around the countryside in the magical fairytale hope that their mere physical presence will somehow help to blunt (and maybe even reverse) the mind-blowing cultural carnage unfolding before our selfish, unbelieving little eyes? (See: This Satanic Temple Holiday Display Has Been Brought To You By: American Pride and “Freedom”.)

By planting plaques and posters and monuments to God’s Word and Law all around us while simultaneously refusing to actually read and submit to His Word in the way that we pursue things like law, children’s education and civil government, we demonstrate our contempt for God and His Word on a level far more profound than those “non-Christian” nations that we proudly imagine ourselves to be worthy of lecturing on things like truth, justice and the ‘Merican way. (See: Our Suicidal Lawlessness.)
So when religious trinkets like the Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma state capitol are ordered to be removed, as recently reported, we shouldn’t be so quick to protest. We should perhaps be thankful for the consistent application of our proud American culture’s insane commitment to religious pluralism (as a “God-given right”, no less), so that we might more clearly see the unbreakable truth of God’s Law and repent of our long and proud rebellion against it. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)

It is our contempt for His Word that has led us to our present condition. (See: Judgment begins with the Church…not the Democrats.)
It is our contempt for His Word that has Islamic prayers openly promoted in our civil government. (See: Islamic worship in American government? Sure. Why not?)
It is our contempt for His Word that has witches leading official prayers in our civil governmental bodies. (See: Religious “Freedom” Update: Witch leads American heartland “lawmakers” in “prayer”.)
It is our contempt for His Word that has Islamic mosques operating openly all over the land. (See: Mosques over America: Will we live by the First Commandment or die by the First Amendment?)
It is our contempt for His Word that has the homosexual deathstyle advancing like a tidal wave over the culture. (See: How to NOT stop the Big Gay Bullies that are raping the culture.)
It is our contempt for His Word that has millions of our own little children freely sacrificed on the altar of convenience both unto death at abortuaries and unto lives of State-programmed Corporate servitude in “education” systems built upon an approach to the pursuit of knowledge yanked from serpent’s tongue in Eden. (See: Redeeming Children’s Education: Confronting Our Satanic Approach to the Pursuit of Knowledge.)
So let’s stop getting all wound up about having Ten Commandments plaques on display here or there, or allowing students to tote around Bibles as they go about their daily immersion in explicitly anti-Christian instruction.
Let’s actually do what those ornamental plaques, monuments, and Bibles command us to do in the realms of law, education, economics and everywhere else, right here and now, while there is still time.
