You wrote, or I mean, someone else wrote, as you cannot : "and I do acknowledge the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by divine inspiration."Or by article 22 of the constitution of Delaware,(1776,) which required all officers, besides an oath of allegiance, to make and subscribe the following declaration: "I, A.B., do profess [143 U.S. 457, 470] faith in God the Father, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, and in the Holy Ghost, one God, blessed for evermore; and I do acknowledge the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by divine inspiration."
Even the constitution of the United States, which is supposed to have little touch upon the private life of the individual, contains in the first amendment a declaration common to the constitutions of all the states, as follows: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," etc.,- and also provides in article 1,§ 7,(a provision common to many constitutions,) that the executive shall have 10 days (Sundays excepted) within which to determine whether he will approve or veto a bill.
Why is it then, when I quote any passage of scripture, tht very scripture that is given by divine inspiration, word for word, no additions, no deletions, and without comment, you and your bosom buddies in Christ LRS and Rogue call me an atheist?
Do you at least know why you and I were forbidden from reading the Old and New Testament up to 30 years ago? The moment the faithful were allowed to read the old and new testaments, they left the church in droves. Wonder why?
