After reading the article on Religious Rights I have found it clear that at the comings of Religious Right group had Christian/biblical worldviews, most individuals upheld traditional Christian values. Additionally, their views would be of those that are very conservative. These conservative individuals were trying to create a lasting impact on our country. As I see in comparison with today, a lot of political controversy is very comparable to what’s going on in the world today, mainly how the people are offended by our history and want to take God out of everything. As we know the religious right was centered on Christian world views and we see that it was supported around pleasing God and living a Godly centered life. In comparison with today’s worldview the people politically voting for one certain political party not seeing the underlying sin of what that person holds secrete.
Our country was established on God and I feel that God should never be taken out of our government. Another compare/contrast piece from the beginning of the Religious Rights movement to now is ,The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”. But here we are as people are not putting God first in our everyday, here we are trying to erase history, here we are not valuing life and each other.
I know and believe that my God is almighty, He is a powerful being and the Bible is used for training and correcting and is needed to be readily available to use to provide good work in everyone. Timothy 3:16-17 tells us, “The Apostle Paul taught how the scriptures bless our lives. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. In closing, a scripture we Christians need to hear in James 3:13, says, “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.”

There is a tremendous amount of interesting information concerning the genesis of the Christian Right in the assigned texts. I have enjoyed much of what I have read, over the years, about Jerry Falwell and the rise of the Religious Right in the 1980s. It is clearly demonstrated in the tireless work of Reverend Falwell, that he cared deeply about the direction in whic
