Why do the courts say we are a secular nation yet our Declaration ofIndependence declares that our American rights come from the Creator
PASS CHRISTIAN, Miss. (PRWEB) June 22, 2018
In America today, it is unconstitutional for a fifth grader to pray over a peanut butter sandwich during lunch in a Mississippi public school cafeteria. Yet the current Mississippi constitution states in its Bill of Rights that “the Holy Bible cannot be excluded from any public school in this state.”
Within the pages of "In God We Trusted" ($43.49, paperback, 9781545619889; $9.99, e-book, 9781545626870), readers will discover how the nation was originally founded on biblical principles and roots.
“Does what we are doing today line up with the ideals of our nation’s founding fathers as set forth in the Declaration of Independence?” Jeff Wallace asks. “Are we in line with the Constitution of the United States as they wrote it? If not, then what can we do about seeing it put into actual practice in the 21st century?”
Some of the questions the book answers are: Why did the US Supreme Court unanimously cite the Mississippi constitution as precedent for education over 100 years ago and now says it is unconstitutional?; Why are we not allowed to be taught the truth of our nation’s history?; Why is George Washington’s Farewell Address no longer in our textbooks?; Why do the courts say we are a secular nation yet our Declaration of Independence declares that our American rights come from the Creator?; and What, if any, role did the Holy Bible play in the framing of America’s founding documents?
Jeff Wallace is a two time, award-winning Christian author, pastor, educator and business owner. He is also the author of "Bible Study 101: Keys to Understanding the Word of God". He lives with his wife on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. They have two sons.
