In God We Trust on US Currency

A friend of mine sent me an email directing me to an on-line poll/petition to keep "In God We Trust" on US Currency.  I had a bit of an epiphany right there on the spot and this was my response back to him...

In God We Trust on currency or not...

With all that Jesus had to say about money...about where our true treasure is, the love of hard it is for a rich man to enter heaven, etc, etc, I'm growing more and more inclined to think that God/Jesus abhor the idea that their name IS on money.

Here is a quote from Mahatma Gandhi:
"I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ. The materialism of affluent Christian countries appears to contradict the claims of Jesus Christ that says it's not possible to worship both Mammon and God at the same time."

...and and I both are VERY rich indeed.  Does that concern you?

Our supposed "christian" nation is not, and I'd be surprised if even 20% of the people in churches are truly saved.  We need real world, honest persecution in the American church.  It's coming and it's going to be very hard...but it won't be difficult to know the saved from the unsaved from the false convert.

Removing "In God We Trust" is not persecution, neither is having the manger scene removed from public display...not even the removal of the Ten Commandments from public court buildings.  What is "real" persecution?  Check out The Voice of the Martyrs for some ideas.
