Protestant’s and Catholic’s In The Congress For A Prophetic Reason – New Analysis Reveals Religious Composition Of House and Senate

On January 3rd, 2023, Billy Hallowell wrote this article examining the makeup of those serving in the Unites States Congress. The overwhelming majority are proclaimed Christians or Catholics, and the very small minority are Muslim, Humanist, or Mormon. The results are quite shocking:

Christians will make up an overwhelming majority of those serving in the House and Senate during the 118th Congress, according to new analysis from The Pew Research Center.”

“In a report titled “Faith on the Hill,” the polling organization explores 534 of the 535 members’ religious affiliations, finding 88% of Congress in the 2023-2024 session self-identifies with some form of Christianity. The 535th member, Congressman-elect Donald McEachin, died before taking office and will be replaced in a February special election.”

“These religious demographics are noteworthy, considering just 63% of Americans call themselves Christian. Thus, the percentage of Christians in Congress outpaces the proportion of citizens claiming the same religious designation.”

“There are 303 Protestants in the new Congress, an increase of six from the previous Congress and the first time in four sessions (since 2015-2016) that the number has topped 300,” Pew noted in its report. “The new Congress has 148 Catholics, 10 fewer than the 117th.”

“Despite the decrease, Catholics still comprise about 28% of Congress, outpacing the 21% of Americans who identify as Catholic. Meanwhile, there are nine members in Congress of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, eight Orthodox Christians, and one Messianic Jew.”

Just 65 members of Congress are not Christian. Among those cohorts, 33 are Jewish, accounting for 6% of Congress and outpacing the 3% of Americans who call themselves Jewish.”

“Among the non-Christians, there are also three Muslims, two Buddhists, one religiously unaffiliated, and one humanist.”

“An additional 20 members of Congress have “unknown religious affiliations,” according to Pew.”

These proportions and numbers give a lens into the theological makeup of the legislature, though they also paint an interesting picture when comparing the composition of Congress to the general population.”

While Christianity, for instance, has dwindled from 78% of the U.S. public in 2007 to the 63% currently observed, the Christian composition of Congress has barely changed in recent years.”

Now you could be saying “okay, yeah, sure, I get it. There are many Christians and many Catholics in these high positions of U.S government.” Or you’re saying, “wow, the Unites States is truly heading back to it’s Christian roots of a God fearing nation. Woohoo! Revival!”

But, don’t shout for joy quite yet. Why am I specifically highlighting the religious make up of the Congress, one of the most powerful bodies of those who define and create laws that influence our daily lives here in America?

Because, these will be the very people that Satan uses to exalt the Sunday and bring upon the Unites States the mark of the beast, which is, religious laws.

Now, God does have people within the high ranks of the U.S. government that are working for Him, and that will be used for God’s high calling and purpose.

Speaking of the message of the Loud Cry (third angels message & the laying open the sins of Babylon) which is lifted with loud voices across the whole nation and world by Christians, Ellen White stated:

“While many of our rulers are active agents of Satan, God also has his agents among the leading men of the nation. The enemy moves upon his servants to propose measures that would greatly impede the work of God; but statesmen who fear the Lord are influenced by holy angels to oppose such propositions with unanswerable arguments. Thus a few men will hold in check a powerful current of evil.” {SOP IV 429.1}

In the movements now in progress in this country to secure for the institutions and usages of the church the support of the State, Protestants are following in the steps of papists. Nay, more, they are opening the door for popery to regain in Protestant America the supremacy which she has lost in tho Old World. And that which gives greater significance to this movement is the fact that the principle object contemplated is the enforcement of Sunday observance, – a custom which originated with Rome, and which she claims as the sign of her authority. The spirit of the papacy,-the spirit of conformity to worldly customs, the veneration for human traditions above the commands of God,-is permeating the Protestant churches, and leading them on to do the same work of Sunday exaltation which the papacy has done before them. Would the reader understand the agencies to be employed in the soon coming contest? He has but to trace the record of the means which Rome employed for the same object in ages past. Would he know how papists and Protestants united will deal with those who reject their dogmas? Let him see the spirit which Rome manifested toward the Sabbath and its defenders.” {SOP IV 390.3}

In the Churches AND in the State, Protestants and Catholics are joining arms; but all for a satanic end time scheme. Now is time for God’s people to uplift the standard of God’s law, His holy and perfect TEN Commandments. We must point the people back to the down trodden precept of the 4th commandment and restore the breach that has longed plagued the world.

Isaiah 58:12 “And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.  If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
