How to Secularize a “Christian” Institution

How to secularize our school system or legalize Gay marriage by a  few easy steps.

First delude oneself by believing America is a Christian nation.  One can do this my misquoting scripture to read American into the bible.   Start with John Winthrop twisting of Mathew 5:14; twisting scripture the light is not the Gospel but American exceptionalism. Build on this fallacy by reading America into Israel’s redemption Exodus.  Proclaim American   a Christian country even though one must ignore the lack of sound biblical support.

Second deny the   doctrine of total depravity and original sin.  Ignore and disregard scripture  that  shows we all  are dead in sin and trespasses  Roman 1: 16-32 and the natural man cannot obey  God nor  understand  spiritual things Ignore verses 1 Corinthians 2:14-16, and Romans 8:5-8.

Now the fun part,  in respect to the above step,  entrust  reprobate persons  in government  with  promoting , encouraging and providing benefits for marriage  and education while we are at it.

As a result  in 200 years be befuddled why sinful men  who you gave the keys of  institutions  of marriage and educations   twist the institutions  to be secular and hostile to Christianity  while  you still  vainly  try to win back culture for Christ  by you self righteousness and works while neglecting  proclamation   of the gospel to a sinful  world.

Now I am being  facetious but there is a important point to be made about culture: we Christians  share the blame for this current  gay marriage  mess by intrusting power to regulated marriage to a secular state on a false assumption America at any time  was a  Christian nation; that such nationalism cannot be found in Scripture.

Perhaps we need to lean we are not, and never was and never could be a Christian nation and need to get back proclaiming the Gospel.

Romans 1:16

English Standard Version (ESV) 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

(Not it the gospel is the power of salvation not politics nor  culture wars)
