The Rightful Role Of Christianity In America
Selling our birthright
April 15,  2012
"There never has been a period of history, in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundation."
Joseph Story - U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1811 - 1845
1829 speech at Harvard



James Madison, 4th President of the United States, appointed Joseph Story to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1811.  The youngest and possibly the most influential person ever to serve as a Justice, Story served 34 years until his death in 1845.   


In 1844, Justice Story delivered the Court's unanimous decision in Vidal v. Girard's Executors, saying...


" not to be maliciously and openly reviled and blasphemed against, to the annoyance of believers or the injury of the public..."


"Why may not the Bible, and especially the New Testament, without note or comment, be read and taught as a Divine Revelation in the school - its general precepts expounded, its evidences explained and its glorious principles of morality inculcated?"


"What is there to prevent a work, not sectarian, upon the general evidences of Christianity, from being read and taught in the college by lay teachers?  It may well be asked, what is there in all this, which is positively enjoined, inconsistent with the spirit or truths of the religion of Christ?  Are not these truths all taught by Christianity?"


The answer to Justice Story's questions are simple. First, there is nothing to prevent these things from happening if Christians would re-engage in the public arena by first, VOTING, and then take uncompromising stands.  Second, "Why may not the Bible, and especially the New read and taught as a Divine Revelation' in the schools?  Because we Christians refuse to believe the power of God within us to uphold truth and engage the issue with petitions, the ballot box, and stedfast faith that God is with us. 


The story of Esau in Genesis 25:29-34, foolishly selling his birthright, to his great regret, has been repeated again by Christians in America.  We have given up the battlefield to the unbelieving secularists and rationalized our refusal to defend 'the general evidences of Christianity' and the 'glorious principles of morality' found in 'Divine Revelation'.


As did Esau, we have unnecessarily and unceremoniously despised and given up our birthright to avoid the challenges of the battlefield. And what a mess of 'pottage' we have gotten!

God of our fathers, and giver of life, be merciful in the face of our unbelief.  Forgive us for our failure to take Your promises as from You while giving credence to the foolishness of men. Penetrate our stubborn and prideful hearts that we might see the littleness of our faith, cry out to you for deliverance, and be renewed in our strength as men and women of God.  We pray that we and our brethren will take heart in the days and months ahead, cast the eyes of our heart upward, seek Your Face, know that You are our deliver and not we ourselves.  Bring us to repentance as a people by Thy mighty power, that the world would know that You are our God, our hope, and our Life. Deliver us LORD. Have mercy on America. Do a mighty work to bring us to our senses and our knees again. In the Name above all names, Jesus of Nazareth, KING of kings, and LORD of lords. Amen
