Do we? "In God we Trust"

Recently my son sent me a article from a major newspaper that the author said we should ( I am summarizing here) that it is a tragity that we still put "In God we Trust" on our money.  That we need to put away old wives tales, fairy tales and realize it is by our own effort and intelligent minds that American is great.

I don't know about you, but that is the most Unintelligent man I have heard in a long time.  However the real truth comes out in this same authors post when he comments that IF God was real we would not have wars, diseases, etc etc.   Here is a man who WANTS to believe, but through a unbelieving heart he can not.  We expect God to be a genie in a bottle, where we can act any way we want too and he will just keep all things comfortable and nice for us.  What we do not understand is that God has a huge plan for mankind, but mankind must first learn that their ways do NOT work.

Isaiah 59

Warnings against Sin
 1 Listen! The Lord’s arm is not too weak to save you,
      nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call.
 2 It’s your sins that have cut you off from God.
      Because of your sins, he has turned away
      and will not listen anymore.
 3 Your hands are the hands of murderers,
      and your fingers are filthy with sin.
   Your lips are full of lies,
      and your mouth spews corruption.

 4 No one cares about being fair and honest.
      The people’s lawsuits are based on lies.
   They conceive evil deeds
      and then give birth to sin.
 5 They hatch deadly snakes
      and weave spiders’ webs.
   Whoever falls into their webs will die,
      and there’s danger even in getting near them.
 6 Their webs can’t be made into clothing,
      and nothing they do is productive.
   All their activity is filled with sin,
      and violence is their trademark.
 7 Their feet run to do evil,
      and they rush to commit murder.
   They think only about sinning.
      Misery and destruction always follow them.
 8 They don’t know where to find peace
      or what it means to be just and good.
   They have mapped out crooked roads,
      and no one who follows them knows a moment’s peace.
 9 So there is no justice among us,
      and we know nothing about right living.
   We look for light but find only darkness.
      We look for bright skies but walk in gloom.
 10 We grope like the blind along a wall,
      feeling our way like people without eyes.
   Even at brightest noontime,
      we stumble as though it were dark.
   Among the living,
      we are like the dead.
 11 We growl like hungry bears;
      we moan like mournful doves.
   We look for justice, but it never comes.
      We look for rescue, but it is far away from us.
 12 For our sins are piled up before God
      and testify against us.
      Yes, we know what sinners we are.
 13 We know we have rebelled and have denied the Lord.
      We have turned our backs on our God.
   We know how unfair and oppressive we have been,
      carefully planning our deceitful lies.
 14 Our courts oppose the righteous,
      and justice is nowhere to be found.
   Truth stumbles in the streets,
      and honesty has been outlawed.
 15 Yes, truth is gone,
      and anyone who renounces evil is attacked.

I chose to Believe years ago, I STAND on that belief.
