Wall of Misconception

Does the Separation of Church and State Mean the Separation of God and Govt

by Peter A. Lillabck

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
The “wall of separation between church and state” is a phrase not found anywhere in the Constitution, but activist judges have recklessly used that phrase to stamp out public religious expression. We are restricted from praying in public schools, the Ten Commandments and other religious symbols have been stripped from public buildings, and the term “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance has been called “unconstitutional”. Dr. Peter Lillback exposes the church/state separation myth that has led to such actions in his groundbreaking book entitled Wall of Misconception. Within its pages, Lillback counters the claims that Christianity must only reside in the walls of the church by pointing to America’s Founding Fathers and historical documents that prove Christianity’s incontrovertible influence on our nation at large.
