Why America Is In Danger of Losing Its Privilege as God's Ally

(Charisma Media archives)

Read Time: 3 Minutes 16 Seconds

The Dutch pastor, scholar and church leader Marinus Burcht van 't Veer [1904-1944] examined the conflict, depicted in 1 Kings 16-21, between the prophet Elijah, King Ahab, and Queen Jezebel in his book "My God Is Yahweh: Elijah and Ahab in an Age of Apostasy."

With regard to ancient Israel's abandonment of God he noted, "Now that Israel was no longer interested in her calling, the Lord took away her privileges," befittingly adding, "The privilege of being God's ally would now be enjoyed by others."

Modern American Christendom finds itself in a similar predicament. The nation's Founders disembarked at Jamestown in 1607, erected a cross, took communion and pledged "to reach the people within these shores with the gospel of Jesus Christ and raise up Godly generations after us." Sharing a spiritually robust English Puritan kinship, the founders possessed the kind of unshakeable faith that nowadays is hardly ever seen.

It has been asked that if America's founders wanted to establish Christianity as the official religion of America, why didn't they just say so? Well, they did.

A straight answer to that question can be found in the 13 Original States Charters and Constitutions of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland.

But much like ancient apostate Israel, America frittered away its Judeo-Christian heritage and shattered the well-ordered, systematic biblical bedrock and culture laid down by the early Founders.
