One Nation Under God?

What do we mean when we say, "One Nation Under God"? Think about the words, "Under God"?
Romans 13:1, "Let every soul be subject to the
governing authorities. For there is no authority except from
and the authorities that exist are appointed by God."
Maybe this can give us a little guidance as we realize that God is above all.

Below I have posted a poem that Judge Roy Moore from Alabama wrote.
He was sued, and taken out of office for displaying the ten commandments
in his courtroom.

America The Beautiful:

America the beautiful, or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride; I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in Dumpsters, abortion on demand.
Oh, sweet land of liberty, your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly poisoned by cocaine,
choosing to indulge their lust, when God has said abstain.

From sea to shining sea, our Nation turns away
from the teaching of God's love and a need to always pray.

So many worldly preachers tell lies about our Rock,
saying God is going broke so they can fleece the flock.

We've kept God in our temples, how callous we have grown
when earth is but His footstool, and heaven is His thrown.

We've voted in a government that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless judges who throw reason out the door.

Too soft to place a killer in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not angry, that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God, from whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do, but stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children, will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face and mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from Heaven and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land and those who live within.

But, America the Beautiful, if you don't then you will see,
a sad but Holy God withdraw His hand from thee.

~Judge Roy Moore
