2 In God We Trust? The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness….

4 In God We Trust? What is God’s Intention for the Human Race?
(Genesis 22:15-18 KJV) And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, {16} And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: {17} That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; {18} And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. Have ALL nations of the earth been blessed? Has “the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” (the lineage to which this promise was restated) blessed everyone?

5 In God We Trust? (1 Timothy 2:3-6 KJV) For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; {4} Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. {5} For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; {6} Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 1922 epignosis (ep-ig'-no-sis); from 1921; recognition, i.e. (by implication) full discernment, acknowledgement: Have ALL come to a full understanding of truth?

7 In God We Trust? Ex 20:1 - Ex 20:17(ASV) And God spake all these words, saying, I am Jehovah thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image… Thou shalt not take the name of Jehovah thy God in vain… Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Honor thy father and thy mother… Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. Thou shalt not covet… The founding fathers of these United States recognized this Law and the God of this Law. How do we know? They not only told us, they left us a trail of evidence….

14 In God We Trust!!! Does America have such dedication, courage and vision now? As time passed, so the plan revealed another dimension… (Gal 3:16 NRSV) Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring; it does not say, "And to offsprings," as of many; but it says, "And to your offspring," that is, to one person, who is Christ. (Gal 3:27-29 NRSV) As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. {28} There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. {29} And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to the promise.

15 In God We Trust!!! The trustworthiness of God revealed in a two phase plan… (1 Timothy 4:10 KJV) For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. (1 John 2:2 NIV) He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. Rom 8:18 - Rom 8:21(NRSV) 18 I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us.  19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God;  20 for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope  21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 

16 In God We Trust!!! Our Trustworthy God has room for ALL in His Plan…
(Acts 3:19-21 NRSV) Repent therefore, and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out, {20} so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah appointed for you, that is, Jesus, {21} who must remain in heaven until the time of universal restoration that God announced long ago through his holy prophets. (Dan 7:13-14 NRSV) As I watched in the night visions, I saw one like a human being coming with the clouds of heaven. And he came to the Ancient One and was presented before him. {14} To him was given dominion and glory and kingship, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not pass away, and his kingship is one that shall never be destroyed.

17 In God We Trust!!! God Does have a Plan He IS Worthy of Trust
Yet, even as we say this, the trust that we manifest continues to drain away, sometimes with subtlety and sometimes with a brash fanfare…

19 In God We Trust? Posted: October 30, :30 pm Eastern By Bob Unruh © 2008 In response to public protest sparked by an exclusive WND report, the National Park Service today told WND it is rebuilding the display of the replica of the cap on the Washington Monument so that the Latin inscription "Laus Deo" – meaning "Praise be to God" – is no longer obscured from public view.

20 In God We Trust!!! (Dan 2:44 NRSV) And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall this kingdom be left to another people. It shall crush all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever; Isa 35:8 - Isa 35:10(ASV) 8 And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but is shall be for the redeemed: the wayfaring men, yea fools, shall not err therein.  9 No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast go up thereon; they shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:  10 and the ransomed of Jehovah shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. (Hab 2:14 KJV) For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

21 In God We Trust!!! The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them. Isaiah 11:6
