One Nation Under God Jeremiah Meaning Commentary Reflections Book Launched

The Rev. Curry Pikkaart launched A Nation Under God: Reflections from Jeremiah, a discussion of the biblical basis of the concept of “one nation under God”, as reflected in the Book of Jeremiah.

South Haven, United States - February 12, 2019 /PressCable/ —

The Rev. Curry Pikkaart, a retired pastor, successful author and ministry coach, launched A Nation Under God: Reflections from Jeremiah, a book discussing the biblical aspects of what exactly it means to be “one nation under God” by focusing on the Book of Jeremiah. The book aims to answer a series of relevant questions such as the meaning of being a nation under God, the implications of accepting this mission, and many more.

The words “one nation under God” have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance of the United States in 1954 and have caused a great deal of controversy.

Pastor Curry explains: “In the United States of America these four words – added to the pledge in 1954 – have become more than controversial. They have turned into fighting words. The two extremes of the spectrum are polar opposites – the one willing to do anything to remove the words and the other willing to do anything to prevent that from happening. And both are willing to spare no expense or experience to make themselves heard and seen.”

His latest book aims to explore important questions related to the controversial phrase, including its meaning, the responsibilities that come with it, and the biblical foundations for the concept of “a nation under God”.

The book focuses on the Book of Jeremiah as the foundational text for a nation which accepts the guidance of God as its ultimate guiding force.

Choosing the biblical story of Jeremiah was motivated by the unique mission God gave him. After years of Israelite rebellion, Jeremiah was assigned the difficult task of revealing the sins of the Israelites and calling them back to accepting God’s guidance and rule.

The book explores the teachings of the Book of Jeremiah and its relevance for the modern meaning of the “one nation under God” concept as applied to the United States.

Malaysian ex-PM Najib combative ahead of 1MDB graft trial

Feb 19, 2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — From appearing in an R&B music video and trolling social media to vilify the new government, former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has been combative before the start of his graft trial, linked to the multibillion-dollar looting of the 1MDB state investment fund that has battered the country's standing abroad. The trial was to start Tuesday, but Najib's lawyers won a delay of proceedings on Monday. Najib's lawyer, Farhan Read, said the Appeal Court allowed the delay pending an appeal over a technical issue that the defense says could impair the validity of the trial. No...

Malaysia leader: Still negotiating China-backed rail project

Feb 19, 2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said Tuesday that proceeding with a multibillion-dollar China-backed rail link project would impoverish the country, saddling the government with excess debt for the next 30 years. Since winning a historic vote last May, Mahathir's government has axed or reviewed large-scale infrastructure projects to rein in a surging national debt that it blames mostly on corruption in the previous government. But there is confusion over the status of the $20 billion East Coast Rail Link following recent conflicting statements by two Cabinet ministers. Mahathir's comments Tuesday suggested it might be called off...

Malaysia's 2018 auto sales rebounded, flat growth seen

Feb 19, 2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — New vehicle sales in Malaysia rebounded last year after two straight years of contraction, thanks to a three-month tax holiday, but growth is likely to remain flat this year amid uncertainties over government policies, an automotive group said Wednesday. The Malaysian Automotive Association said 598,714 vehicles were sold last year, up 3.8 percent from 2017. It said this was largely due to an upsurge in demand from June to August 2018 after vehicle prices dropped when a new government that took power in May's general election scrapped an unpopular consumption tax. Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad's government...

Malaysia royals to pick new king Jan. 24 after abdication

Feb 19, 2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysia's royal families will meet on Jan. 24 to pick a new king after Sultan Muhammad V abdicated unexpectedly after just two years on the throne, an official said Monday. The 49-year-old ruler resigned Sunday as Malaysia's 15th king, marking the first abdication in the nation's history and cutting short his five-year term. No reason was given, but the move came after he reportedly married a 25-year-old former Russian beauty queen in November while on medical leave. Keeper of the Ruler's Seal, Syed Danial Syed Ahmad, said the Council of Rulers held a meeting Monday and...
