One Nation Under God


It is self-evident by both their actions and speech, that the founders of this country where Christians well grounded in their faith, who had the explicit intention of founding this nation on the principals of Christianity.

“It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionist, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.” 
 ~ Patrick Henry

“No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more then those of the United States.” 
~ George Washington | 1st President of America


“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is our duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” 
~ John Jay | 1st Chief Justice of the Supreme Court

“We recognize no sovereign but God, and no king but Jesus!”
 ~ John Hancock and John Adams

“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible” 
~ George Washington | 1st President of America

I Hate Cold Eggs In The Morning... No Matter Their Color

Created By Christopher Deaton

Today we are celebrating the resurrection of the Christ, as you are most likely to know, and most likely to ignore after you walk out of, if you go to, Church. The true reason of this day, matters little to secularist and Christians alike; we fill the day with candy, dyed eggs and tales of magical bunnies - even if none of that has anything to do with Easter what so ever. In so many words, Easter has been secularized, just like Christmas, so that it has lost (in our minds) all of its true meaning. Even if we take a few seconds of recognition to ponder and be thankful for Jesus, we still do not even begin to comprehend His sacrifice on the cross, or realize the miracle of the resurrection. For even to many of those who say and think they believe, it is just a story.

Happy Easter!!! and never forget its true meaning.

Desperate For God


Since the fall of Adam there has been a desperation implanted within the hearts of man, and that desperation is for God. Many a person suffers at the hand of this desperation, within them being the feeling of incompleteness and/or need of something bigger then self. Nevertheless, these feelings shall remain until one finds a being who fits into both categories, one who is both bigger than self, and completes not only you but all of humanity. A being such as the Lord God, Jehovah, who just happens to be the only One who truly fits within those categories. 

Humanity was originally intended to live in harmony with God, and He gave us a single and simple command, “but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Genesis 2:17). And as humanity does more frequently then not, we failed at that, thus we were cursed. “ ‘Unto the woman’ he said, ‘I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.’ And unto Adam he said, ‘Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field: in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return’ ” (Genesis 3:16-19).  And due to the sin of humanity, and it alone is our desperation, for if we never sinned we’d still be in harmony with God. 

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16). The only way to satisfy this desperation is via the blood of Christ. There is no one else and no other way. Christ was sent to die, once and for all who would accept, as well as He accepts them also. “For Christ died for sins once and for all, a good man on behalf of sinners, in order to lead you to God. He was put to death physically, but made alive spiritually” (1 Peter 2:18). Christ is who can satisfy this desperation, for the only way to satisfy desperation for God is to be with God, in a relationship with Him that can only be obtained through the blood of Christ.

Perfect World

We live in a world searching for perfection in all the wrong places, for they look not unto God. They look unto science, politics, etc., but not unto the true God, and the cleansing blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. They do not understand the true reason(s) why this world is flawed, they say many things, but never do they say sin. But some do name humanity as the only fault of this earth, but that is only half true. For indeed humanity is faulty, but that is for the fact of sin, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:2).

If we never sinned, we would have never fallen short of the glory of God, and so one can only logically conclude that we would still be in the garden of Eden: that place of perfection for which humanity was made.
In what era of man have we not been in search of a perfect world, or something to make this world so. There are many theories on how to make the earth perfect, all of which are flawed, and made by ungodly men (e.g. socialism, Nazism, etc). But all things as such have at least one thing in common, they leave God out of the equation. They are all flawed attempts at a perfect world without God. When will people learn that by God, and no other way, will there be perfection?

About The Blog




Named Marks Of The Cross, this blog is written in the hope of bringing others to know the One and only true God, Jehovah. I wish also to spiritually strengthen those already saved readers. Benjamin Rush, of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, once said “My only hope of salvation is in the infinite, transcendent love of God manifested to the world by the death of His Son upon the cross. Nothing but His blood will wash away my sins.”
And indeed this is most true, it has been since the crucifixion of Jesus upon the cross, and it shall be so till kingdom come. Galatians 2:20 says, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” And so it is for all who are saved. We are no longer who we were, but who we should be, or so it is in the eyes of God.
And so I conclude my first entry in my blog Marks Of The Cross.
