A North Carolina judge just ruled that teachers in Rowan County will not be able to present prayers in the name of Christ, since doing so would be ‘discrimination.’ The judge, James A. Beaty, Jr., declared:
Defendant Rowan County, North Carolina is hereby enjoined from knowingly and/or intentionally delivering or allowing to be delivered sectarian prayers at meetings of the Rowan County Board of Commissioners during the pendency of this suit,” he wrote in his order. …The practice fails to be nondiscriminatory, entangles government with religion, and over time, establishes a pattern of prayers that tends to advance the Christian faith of the elected commissioners at the expense of any religious affiliation

We hear all of this talk of “toleration” and “non-discrimination,” and what most fail to say is that such words, or any words like them, are utterly absent in the Bible. The Scripture does not say that Christ came to “tolerate,” but “that He might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8) Christ did not come to be “welcoming to all beliefs”, but to bring a sword (Matthew 10:34), to divide the world from light and dark. The only way to change such wicked and evil edicts of the state is for Christians to disobey such rules. If enough Christians did, the disposition of the state would change, from toleration towards evil, to toleration towards intoleration to evil.
