Members of Congress are pushing to remove all references of God and gender from oaths taken before House committees.

The proposed draft rules for the House Committee on Natural Resources was recently made public. The package proposes the removal of the phrase “so help you God” while adding the phrase “under penalty of law.”

The proposed rules also add gender inclusive edits, changing “chairman” to “chair” and on multiple occasions replacing “his or her” with “their.”

The House Committee on Natural Resources is expected to vote in the coming week on whether to approve the rules proposal which, if adopted, will be immediately implemented.

What can Christian Americans do?

1. Pray

Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.” 1 Timothy 2:2 NLT

“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” 2 Chronicles

2. Voice Your Concern
