For the most part, the lost have always run the government. Some aspects of Christianity were very engrained in early American society but was greatly eroded away during the 20th century. While some of the lost folks once held to some aspects of Christianity, it wasn't due to reverence for God, it was a matter of secular Christianity being the societal norm at that time. Even so, a lost soul who believes there is a God, who lives by some Christian principles, is just as lost as any other lost man.
Only a very few American presidents may have even been biblically born again Christians. While all claimed to be and were known as Christian men, the vast majority were secular Christian, not biblically Christian.
Even here in this very rural, conservative, Christian area, there was a major raid conducted by "law enforcement" which took down a small meth lab recently. Why heavily armed federal forces were involved or even needed is actually a bigger long term concern than the fact there was a small meth lab in the area. Surely local and county officers could have handled this and if they needed back up the State police could have provided such. So why are the feds involved in such a tiny, local operation, as if they don't have major matters on the national scale to tend to?
Have we finally reached the point where there is no such thing as local law enforcement? Are the feds at the point of having control and involvement of all law enforcement across the land down to the trivial? What a dangerous scenario!
