The idea of Religious pluralism draws its life breath from ideas of Natural law theory. Kill Natural law theory and you kill pluralism at the same time.
Natural law is the mask that allows everyone to think that the public square can be religion free.
Freemasonry and the Enlightenment types loved to push natural law so that they could defraud God.
Unfortunately, the conservative movement adopted that sort of thinking. Their main source of transcendent values lay with natural law and Americanism.
Their acknowledgement of God never amounted to much and usually wasn’t explicitly Triune in nature (can’t offend our Jews–they are Americans, too!).
“Let’s steal God’s glory, but we’ll trick him into helping us by saying trite slogans like ‘One nation under God’. That will work wonderfully.”
That’s pretty much how major conservative organizations have thought since at least the 1950s.
They held an anti-presuppositional and anti-Calvinistic basis that they could appeal to the natural man with “factual arguments” since everyone reasons the same–at least if they are good Americans.
Our faith is an angular faith. It is a reflection of God’s personality and his peculiarities.
The 1st amendment contradicts the 1st commandment. The 1st amendment guarantees religious pluralism or that every religion will be protected including false religions. The 1st and 2nd commandment forbid the worship of any god other than the True God and also forbid the worship of idols. In direct contradiction to these first two commandments, Christians have been tricked into defending the 1st amendment as scriptural and the U.S. Constitution as a Christian document! American Christians often will attack any teaching by other Christians that religious pluralism is contrary to scripture. American Christians have been deceived into judging the Bible from the Constitution instead of the Constitution from the Bible. American Christians need to stop defending idolatry and start obeying the 1st and 2nd commandments.
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. Luke 10:27
