INSPIRATIONAL WORDS...A Weblog forum for Christian thought and discussion.

Saturday, February 7, 2009, 02:37 PM
This website and this blog are in no way intended for partisan political discussion. In Christ there are no Democrats or Republicans or Independents. We are all brothers in Christ. There is however amid all the hubbub and frantic activity over the economic stimulus bill currently in the Senate a very troubling side issue for people of faith.

 

In Sec. 9302 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 there is a provision that would forbid colleges (religious or secular) from receiving economic stimulus funds that would be used to improve or repair facilities that are used for religious purposes.

 

Colleges would not receive Federal funds if a Bible Study or prayer service was held in a building scheduled to get this funding. This would have the effect of stifling any religious activity on our college campuses.

 

Many special interests are benefiting from this massive infusion of our tax dollars but the institutions that will be training the leaders for tomorrow will only benefit if God is removed from the equation.

 

This is another instance of attempts in recent years to move our country away from our Judeo Christian heritage. America has been a great country because we can trace our roots back to our God fearing forefathers and because God has had His hand of protection over us.

 

Pray that our leaders will correct this grievous act and restore our reverence for our Creator as they attempt to restore our economy. The irony is that whether they realize it or not the one is directly connected to the other.
