Many say that we need to have God mentioned in the Pledge of Allegiance and all the oaths in the United States. I wish saying the word, “God” would actually put God into the hearts of individuals. But, it doesn’t.
The main issue is never what we “say” in the Pledge of Allegiance. The main issue will always be, if we “live” the Pledge of Allegiance.
We can speak the name of “God” in the Pledge of Allegiance and anything else we want, and yet live a life of very little kindness, very little mercy, little forgiveness, loving only those that support us, never reaching further to understand another human being, willing to point fingers of guilt, and impatient with those “that get in the way”. Where is God in this life of this person who speaks the name of “God” in the Pledge of Allegiance, and is willing to slander anyone who has a different opinion?
