Dear children, the last hour is here. You have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and already many such antichrists have appeared. 1 John 2:18
The founders gave us a Republic which specifically promised freedom of religion. In the context of who, what, when and where they were, I believe the freedom of religion they were referring to was the freedom, ‘within the Christian faith’, to worship as they saw fit.
The forefathers were fleeing the Church of England and it’s tyrannical and dictatorial rule over every aspect of religious life. They were fleeing the state church. Nowhere in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, nor the Bill of Rights do you find the idea that the ‘separation of church and state’ could mean anything other than that there would not be a state church.
The Pilgrims and Puritans shared “a commitment to God and the Biblical revelation so strong that, because of it, both groups were willing to cross an ocean and set up new homes on an unknown continent.”
The modern application of freedom of religion is unconstitutional politically and anti-Christian spiritually!
