We are not a Christian Nation, but a Bible nation...

in response to reader comment: We are a Christian Nation

In the original sense of the word "Christian," according to Acts 11:26, "the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch." So we are not actually a nation of "disciples" or followers of Jesus Christ. But we are a nation governed by laws based upon Biblical principles and founded on the righteousness of the Ten Commandments. There is nothing religious or uniquely Christian or Jewish about these, they are common sense. About 300 years earlier, Commandments 5-10 were revealed as hundreds of laws that Hammurabi used to regulate his pagan society in Babylon years earlier. And about 900 later this righteousness was revealed to Buddha as Step 4 "Right Behavior" of his "8-Fold Path to Perfection." We should have never allowed Muslims to encroach into our neighborhoods and begin replacing the responsible freedoms of our limited Constitutional Republic with their sharia law. They are like invasive species, encroaching like Kudzu into our culture, and they need to be regulated by our laws, and they need us to give them Bible studies to show them that Jesus fulfilled hundreds of Old Testament prophecies and Mohammed fulfilled none, and that anything good written in the Koran was already written in the Bible over 600 years earlier, so who needs the Koran?
