THE "RELIGION" OF THE "PUBLIC SQUARE" IS THE RELIGION OF THE "BROAD WAY" THAT LEADS TO "DESTRUCTION"
The "religion" of the "public square" is also known as "broadway", the street where the "merchants" sold their goods to the public. It was the teaching of Christ, that the "public square" religioon, was synonomous with the "way of damnation" in the New Testament.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree thatWherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
In fact, the "public square" religion repudiates the gospel of Chirst.
THE "RELIGION" OF THE "PUBLIC SQUARE" IS THE RELIGION THAT REPUDIATES THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST
Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
When "Christian ministers" get on TV and begin talking about the "need" to have their "religion" in the "public square", what they are revealing to the public is that they are either "political operatives" or "commercial opportunists". Either way, they are "goats" headed for damnation. (at least that's what Christ taught aobut them) Do not be deceived. These "ministers" are impostures, and their goals have nothing to do with the kngdom of God, or it's Christ.
THE "RELIGION" OF THE "PUBLIC SQUARE" IS THE "RELIGION OF HYPOCRISY" AND "DAMNATION"
Whenever you hear the phrase "religion in the public square", write it off as what it is... damnation. That is where it is coming from, and where it leads a country. America does not need "religion" in "the public square", it needs rightenousness and godliness in it's ministers.
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
How are these hypoocristes going to run the country, when they can't even run themselves faithfully to God first?
Don't believe in these deceptions. This is the "way of damnation", that Christ himself condemned. GO into your pray closets and pray in private, and God will reward you openly... IN THE PUBLIC SQUARE.
A "minister" that REFUSES TO OBEY CHRIST IS A DAMNED LIAR.
and his "PUBLIC SQUARE RELIGION" will SEND YOU TO HELL.
1Jn 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
