In God We Trust: Let’s Be Honest

Quick thought: I heard a preacher this morning say that “In God We Trust” is printed on all our money, and that must really tick God off.

I’ve wondered before how much longer that was going to last.  In all honesty I can’t believe our printed bills and minted coins still I have that on them.  Some ridiculous things have occurred in the name of separation of church and state.  We don’t live in a theocracy, but in a free country, and I understand that well.  Michael Spencer said that mixing church and state is kind of like mixing dog crap with ice cream; you can’t make the crap any better but it sure does ruin your ice cream!

What do you think: Is it to our credit that our money bears “In God We Trust” or is it just a lie?  Remember, this is our money we’re talking about.  We know what Americans really trust.

  1. I think we too often overlook the possibility that the statement is printed on the money, while overlooking that our deity is the money. Great post… God bless

  2. As an Aussie I’ve often wondered how the money can have that printed on it and yet God is banished from the schools.

    It would appear to most that “In God we trust” does NOT apply to USA and indeed how can it? Trusting God is an individual response not a national one, but I hope the words remain on your currency.

    While the founding fathers had a correct understanding of God, and their intent was good, the word ‘god’ can now be applied to any thing or any false deity or even to self. Maybe this is why the words remain. One’s own interpretation can be applied.
