A group in Mississippi is pushing to name Christianity the official state religion. The Magnolia State Heritage Campaign’s Initiative 46 also seeks to make English the state language, “Dixie” the state song and assign April as “Confederate Heritage Month.”
According to the group’s website, the Magnolia State Heritage Campaign “passionately believe in the heritage, culture, values, traditions, and Southern hospitality of Mississippi.”
Arthur Randallson of Magnolia State Heritage Campaign said, “We have taken a little bit of time to prepare an initiative that covers promoting Christianity, which is recognized as the principal religion of Mississippi from the founding of the state in 1817 to the present, and affirmed in the state constitution prayer acknowledging the Holy Bible.”
Initiative 46 must obtain 110,000 signatures to be included on the next ballot.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
