|America: Are we atheist, Christian, Muslim?|
It is very interesting what we hear on the radio, read in the newspaper and see on T.V. regarding Osama Bin Laden's views of America and Americans. He says we are infidels because he uses a different dictionary than we do. Webster's says: Infidel: (1) Non Christian; (2) Unbeliever in respect to a particular religion: (3) One who acknowledges no God."
By our dictionary definition we could even be called Muslims because that word is defended as: "One who surrenders to God." Or, maybe we could be called Islamic, which is defined as: "Submission to the will of God."
Of course, we all know Osama's use of "Infidel: is based in the statement that we are unbelievers in respect to a particular religion. And even that is not nearly the true religion.
But let's get to the heart of the matter. America, with all our faults, weaknesses and failures, is a wonderfully free country, founded and based on our belief in God and Christian principles.
