As our authentic politicians love to say "God Bless America"!
Here is an excerpt of the story that is dripping with irony:
Instead of the sign, "Holiness to the Lord," a banner will be posted over it saying, "Neptune Township School District ... A Community of Learners." In addition, a banner with the words "So Be Ye Holy" will be covered with another banner saying, “Neptune High School: A School of Excellence and No Excuses. "The new banners are meant to appease the American Civil Liberties Union, which had demanded the school district remove all religious signs and symbols from the Methodist-owned auditorium in Ocean Grove, claiming it made non-Christians attending public school graduations feel uncomfortable. Neptune Schools Superintendent David Mooij said he's glad there is a resolution everyone seems able to live with. - Foxnews.comYou can read the full story here.
As America continues to sink into the cultural cesspool (Primetime TV anyone?) we can take solace in the fact that we are at least becoming "a community of learners!" Instead of us trying to be Holy for the Lord is Holy (Leviticus 19:2), we are at least a people of "excellence and no excuses" - does that not sound like like it got the stamp of approval from the Marketing Department? And it is wonderful that they were able to "have a resolution "that everyone is able to live with" However the Lord Jesus Christ may not actually agree with that sentiment when He says in the Bible: “Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven. (Matthew 10:32-33 NLT). The Lord's denying you before God His father is not synonymous with your living...at least not in heaven with Him.
But...as our politicians love to say "God Bless America"
