The Bill Of Rights: Freedom Of Religion? Freedom Of Worship?

18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20) (Our Lord Jesus, we, your followers, come to You in prayer. We pray that many who don’t know you as their Lord and Savior, will be drawn to the waters of baptism, as statements of their accepting you as their Lord and Savior.) “35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him. 36 As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch *said, “Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?” 37 And Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” 38 And he ordered the chariot to stop; and they both went down into the water, Philip as well as the eunuch, and he baptized him.” (Acts 8:35-38) (This paragraph illustrates freedom of religion, as opposed to freedom of worship.)

The first ten amendments to the United States Constitution are known as the Bill of Rights. They identify the rights that Americans have “from the U.S. Government.” As American Citizens, we are guaranteed the right to “freedom of religion.” Consider the statement of the first amendment that relates to freedom of religion. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” The first amendment to the constitution guarantees American citizens “freedom of religion.” However, our nation’s leader, as well as “the lady of the left,” who is a presidential wannabe, have used the term, “freedom of worship.” None of the party of the left, the democrats, don’t seem to have a problem with its two high-profile figures using language that can be used to take away a very important right that we have in this country. Freedom of worship restricts expression of worship to four walls and a roof. Freedom of religion allows the expression of belief to be shown “outside” of the four walls and roof. The video shows baptisms taking place, “outside” of four walls and roof, which is “freedom of religion.” The democrat party has not shown any evidence that it opposes confining worship to the interior of a building. The difference between the stated freedoms is becoming more widely contested in our country. But, will notice the words of such actions that Congress can not do. Congress, who makes our laws, (democrats, listen up!), can not make any laws that relate to religion or to the free expression of a religious belief. You will notice there is nothing in the first amendment that mentions “a great wall of separation, “or “the establishment clause.” It is very easy for anyone (except democrats) to understand the words, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Those words state a right that citizens have, where we are protected from government intrusion into the free expression of religion, “in a building, outside of a building, on the way to a building, or going to another building.” The “lady of the left” has been presented as being the smartest woman in the world. Really? I have heard that our nation’s leader is a constitutional authority. Really? Why don’t those two high-profile democrats, as well as the other democrats who are serving in congress, have the same understanding of “Freedom Of Religion” that so many “ordinary people have? The attack that is presently being unleashed by the U.S. Government on our citizens relates to the Constitutional guarantee that Christians do not have to abide by the recent Supreme Court decision that makes homosexual marriage lawful, and that it is the law of the land, and that Christians and churches are in a position that they must disobey the teachings of God’s Holy Word in relation to men marrying men, and women marrying women. Please allow your mind to consider the truth of this last statement. “The fact that two men have been performing homosexual acts together for any number of years is not a definition of marriage.”
