Oooh again the boogeymen of secularist historians! The bottom line here is some people do not let you get away with throwing down historical nuggets without CONTEXT. The case in question was about a church that hired a British pastor despite there being a law against hiring foreign nationals. The court admitted the church broke the law but they claimed not the spirit of it since it was designed to keep out unskilled workers (sound familiar) and a pastor is not that. The quote is not "from the court" but rather from one justice, David Brewer and remained a source of great controversy to this day. In a 1905 book however, Brewer admitted "the United States cannot be called a Christian nation "in the sense that Christianity is the established religion or that the people are in any manner compelled to support it" Doesn't sound like divine destiny to me. Hyatt concludes:
"This is not Christian nationalism. America's founders had no desire to impose their faith on anyone, which is why they formulated the First Amendment. Neither do we. Nor does it mean that we think America is better than any other nation. This is simply recognizing that God works through nations to move the flow of history in the direction of His eternal will and purpose. We simply want to recognize and acknowledge that God had a purpose in bringing forth this nation.
We want to reclaim America's Divine destiny." - Eddie Hyatt
Please. If you feel compelled to swear you are not espousing Christian nationalism, chances are you know that you are. Also do not fall for the nonsensical statement that he does not wish to impose his beliefs. That is EXACTLY what dominionists want to do! That is the entire point of the seven mountains heresy! God used this nation as He does others, all for his glorious and grand purpose but do not think for a second that He has covenanted with America, as Eddie believes. Do not fall for the revisionist, blatantly false version of history the NAR wants to sell you. America was founded by people rebelling against perceived economic slights and abuses. Some were Christian and some were not. The most hardcore believers rested in this notion that their every movement and decision was God-ordained. Slaughter the savages? Well they needed Jesus! Southern pastors used the bible to defend slavery. This is our history of people who believed in divine destiny. This is who stands before Christ lamenting "Lord Lord." People who thought God was on their side only to discover they were never on His. Do not make the same mistake beloved.
