“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:18-22).

Think about it; if you believe that something or someone is a fairytale, then it should not evoke strong emotions from you, right? One would think that such a person would just shake their head and move on.

The push from unbelievers to remove God from every area of our lives, shows a different story completely. These people are motivated by a hatred of God. But wait – they don’t believe in Him. Such incredibly strong emotions from people who consider God to be a fable!

My husband and I visited the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. a few years ago. We saw FDR’s famous speech after the Japanese attacked us at Pearl Harbor, engraved on the memorial. But then we noticed that the engraver left off the words: So help us God. They were not there. It angered both of us. I wanted to yell at someone; but who? At whom could I yell?

So, those who planned the building of this memorial, felt it necessary to leave off the most important words of FDR’s speech. There words showed our reliance on the Lord. They changed history because of their hatred of our Lord.

Why was ‘so help us God.’ removed from the new World War II Memorial in Washington, DC?

Roosevelt said” Pearl Harbor:
Yesterday, December 7, 1941– a date which will live in infamy–the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked.
“With confidence in our armed forces, with the abounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph.’ Roosevelt ended the message with ‘so help us God.’ Thats not included in the memorial engraving.
It seems as though not only are the anti-God forces trying to exclude God, they are trying to change US history. Why?????


You’re right.. The anti-God forces are alive in America… I don’t know for sure but it’s possible that lawyers from the ACLU were involved in this heinous decision.

Exhibit B: Here is the full transcript of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s speech with inscribed portions highlighted in yellow:

“Yesterday, December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya. Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong. Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam. Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island. This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounded determination of our people – we will gain the inevitable triumph – so help us God.”

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December seventh, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire. [1]

We have established that the anti-God forces are God haters. What does the Bible say about people who hate God?

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Romans 1:28-32).

The Word says that they have pleasure in sinning. There you have it. People hate God because they know that He gave the world His law in the Ten Commandments. They love their sin more than they love anything else. They call themselves atheists, but God’s Word shows this to be untrue.

This should be encouraging to us who are born-again believers in Jesus Christ. Knowing that each man/woman knows inherently that God exists should give us more boldness to share the Gospel. We must understand that Satan has deceived these people. Praying for them is the most important thing we can do before we actually tell them about salvation.

Time is short. I say that a lot lately because it is true.

“Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens” (Psalm 96:3-5).
