We are in a very complex and troubling time in the republic we call The United States of America. As Christians, both men and women, we have been misled to believe we are meant to hide behind the doors of our churches in protected circles, ignoring what is going on in our communities, towns, states, and nation. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have been duped into believing that there is a Constitutional wall separating church and state. It is verifiable that no such statement, language, or amendment exists in the United States Bill of Rights or Constitution or the annals of the discussion and debate during their creation.
