Here we go again. The United States of America is not nor has ever been a Christian nation. Now I know many people reading this are sputtering and hemming and hawing about how wrong I am on this point. Well surprise history will back me up here...
Most of the Founders were Deists, as far as I know none of them were atheists or anti-Christian, and they craftily worded the Constitution of the United States so no one religion or sect/denomination would be greater than the other. In truth our Founding Fathers were radical separatist and in today’s terms be considered terrorists. They defied the will of their governing body and made their own rules up. I don't disagree with what they did but to make them sound something they were not is a blatant violation of the truth. And if you are going to be true to Christianity then the truth needs to be a priority. It also does not mean we do not have to act like a Christian Nation as far as loving one another and all.
But can I prove it. I don't have to. Anyone with a brain and the willingness to look up the truth can find evidence of this. I will provide some quotes and their sources so you can get started.
I think we as Christian’s today have got so wrapped up in the legalities and doctrines of the “Church”, that we have forgotten the most important parts of being “Christian”. Jesus is Compassion. Jesus is Mercy. Jesus is Forgiveness. Jesus is Just. Jesus is Grace. Jesus is Love. Jesus never turned away a human in need even if that person did not know they had a need. He embraced them with open arms. Why are we to be different? Is not our goal to be more like Jesus?
We were given the Great Commission and the Bible as our guide we should no longer fight or debate what we should or should not do.
Fulfilling the Law Through Love
 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.  For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (Romans 13:8-10 ESV)
I don’t know about anyone else but helping someone (a neighbor as it is put in the verses above) shows Love. You know that little line in the Bible Faith, Hope, Love and the greatest of these is Love thing so many people forget…
Now you might ask “who is my neighbor?”, well again we have an answer from the Bible:
The Parable of the Good Samaritan
 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”  Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead.  Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.  So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.  But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion.  He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him.  And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’  Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?”  He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.” (Luke 10:25-37 ESV)
I may not like or agree with other faiths, beliefs, or opinions, but at the core of what I believe Compassion, Empathy, and Human Dignity are the building blocks of Love. So when I hear people say or demonstrate an un-Christian attitude towards those not of their faith, socially beneath what they think is acceptable, and just plain stupid fear I wonder if they have forgot the Man who healed the sick, feed the hungry, comforted the brokenhearted and perfectly exemplified the love that God has for us all? Have they forgotten that it is not our righteousness but God’s grace through Jesus that saves us all?
So if you want to turn away a refugee, a veteran, or someone not like you please don’t call yourself a “Christian”. Now I am not saying don’t take precautions, because I still believe God gave us brains, but really folks why is it so hard we have an instruction manual and still we keep getting things wrong…
Thank you again CVS Caremark for proving to me that the worst customer service in the pharmaceutical world still belongs to you. My phone call Monday was pleasant and the email confirmation made me believe that you got a hold of my doctor and my refill was on the way. The debt from my bank account also made me feel as though a fast and easy transaction was completed. But getting the email this evening stating that you never heard from my doctor was again proof of your unwavering commitment to screw somebody over still holds supreme. By the time I got this email you were closed. My Doctor's office was closed. And to top it all off it is a three day weekend so I will have to wait until Tuesday to do anything about this. Why did I not hear earlier from you. You took payment. Payment for pitty's sake. To me that has to say yes you knew the prescription was on its way. Does that not seem a bit fraudulent? But no all I will hear Tuesday is how sorry you are over the situation and how I should have checked up on it. Why do you bother to offer the service of contacting the doctor in the first place? If I hear one word about multiple tries to my doctor I might just freak out on the representative that will undoubtedly be the brunt of my anger Tuesday. If you did indeed try the doctor multiple times and got nothing why wait until the end of the day on a Friday to bother telling me about it? I guess the fact that a person is in pain does not mean a damn thing to you. No compassion, no responsibility, and certainly not any customer service worth dealing with.
