“State of the Nation” Address

You probably watched the State of the Union address from President Obama.  Well, some of you might be interested in the State of the Nation 2 address from Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis live from the Creation Museum in Cincinnati on Tuesday, 16 February 2010 at 8:00 pm EST.  In it, Ham intends to cover how far adrift the nation is from its moral foundation.  It is considered a call for Christians to get “back to their biblical roots”.

Of course, that begs the question of how many had their beliefs rooted in the Bible to begin with.  Furthermore, it seems that it is based upon the notion that we are a “Christian nation” in any respect.  Certainly, the US was founded upon certain Christian ideals, yet that is quite a far cry from saying it is a “Christian nation”.

Ken Ham is quoted as saying:

“Many Christians have been duped into accepting a false idea: that there is a ‘neutral’ position they can take in regard to social issues,” Ham said. “Some Christians even accept the myth that the U.S. Constitution declares that there should be a separation of church and state. They are hesitant to inject Christian beliefs into politics.

“God’s Word, however, makes it clear that there is no neutral position,” Ham continued. “God’s people need to unashamedly and uncompromisingly stand on the Bible and its absolute standards. We need to proclaim a Christian worldview and the Gospel, all the while giving answers for the hope we have.”

Again, this all sounds on the surface like a good thing, but it doesn’t take much further reading to realize he is advocating getting muddy with worldly politics as the solution to our problems.

Still, I will check it out if I have time next Tuesday.  I’m sure it will have its good points.


  1. That guy plus many in COG land somehow have the mistaken belief that our founding fathers were the reason for the US rise to a world power, etc. No, the reason is the biblical reason- the blessings of Abraham. Many of the founding fathers were deists- belief in God but not a personal God of the bible. At best, they were false Christians- saying they follow Christ but dont keep sabbath and actually espoused religious freedom. Sorry, but God does not promote religious freedom. These kind of people seem to think if we can get back to the former time, we would be right with God. No, we were never a true Christian nation. We are modern Israel, and have the blessings, but God is not our direct God like ancient Israel. The COG is the true nation of God. (Of course He will deal with physical Israel and then then the Gentile world as prophesied.)
