Can you imagine if today our government was filled with the quality of men and women that were present for the first two hundred years of its conception? Learning about our Founders and their courage and conviction, acting unafraid to formally declare in all honesty that man is not in control nor able to rule his or any other life without the power of God and how God was so fiercely a part of their entire life was so awesome! What kind of marvelous could we be if we had such strength and passion for truth! I wonder, where did all the good men go?
I’ve learned so much watching TBN’s fascinating reports from all kinds of media from the last few decades about people who are trying to destroy in every citizens mind, the truth about our country. They want so badly to believe God has no place here, and no mater how hard they try the truth to the evidence just won’t go away. The question is, knowing both the greatness that power can do for all people and experiencing first hand today, the evils that of manipulating and cowardly groups who are bombarding us with such ridiculousness that it almost seems comical, why are we so complacent to let them crap on us and tell us to believe lies while they shred our true rights?
“It can not be emphasized to strongly or too often
That this great nation was founded not by religists but by Christians,
not on religion but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ” Patrick Henry
Even in today’s world when access to original documents, personal, private, foreign, legal and everything else in between is available to anyone to review in its entire truth (if looking in the right spot) there is a growing trend to believe lies. So much fabrication
even by high up leaders (how’d they got there being this blind -who knows) using trickery, that should tell you a whole lot about these people, to fool citizens about the truth to our nations creation. Kind of crazy right? seeing that God was the reason for the pilgrims to settle and create a society based on the Word of God !
And because our own government is failing in courage to stand up to these radical groups and outrageous thinking , all of our lives are in jeopardy as we continue to spiral to atrocious destruction. Because this body of government doesn’t require all citizens to learn our own history, hundreds of millions of us remain illiterate in accurate knowledge. And the very foundation, God, who has made this nation the most successful in history until now is being eradicated. Why on earth would anyone mess with a great thing?- why would anyone want to destroy that? and who are these people following that way of stinking thinking?
The evidence is overwhelming that this is indeed a Christian Nation and the removal of God will prove disastrous- we see that!
The United States Supreme Court 1892;
The Greatest recognized Chief Justice that the Supreme Court has ever had – John Marshall– 1803 -1835 said
President John Quincy Adams to the United States Supreme Court-
and the list goes on.
Some truth about the lies and misunderstandings that are destroying the very fabric upon what this country was built and what it was and is that has made our Declaration of Independence the most successful and enduring government document in all of world history are…
We are not a democracy. We are a people governed by law ( a republic)and not by man. Yet look at what is happening to the principles and truth behind laws-they are being twisted to suit mans purpose. The founding Fathers believed a democracy is the worst kind of government! If you are ruled by man than the country is doomed to tyranny whether ruled by king or majority. And they had witnessed this first hand in Europe and other countries so I think they know what they’re talking about.
Our nations public schools were started because of the positive influences of the Bible with the creation of the curriculum based on it as well. One of the earliest education laws, the Code of 1650, was created as a direct effect of early settlers experience with the Civil atrocities in Europe under the name of Christianity such as the Inquisition, which were a direct result of illiteracy. The people were wrongly taught the Bible and didn’t know the law. If the Common people could read for them selves they would resist an evil government. This law was to insure each American student were raised on the principles of the Bible which would enable them do all other work while having first a strong and moral foundation. …Imagine if every student was treated to such powerful principles in school- a sound academic education.
Is not in the Constitution, 1st Amendment or any other official document! The 1st Amendment states only that Government shall not make this nation one denomination. So umm, all those people who have rid the Bible out of public places from which this country was the one to demand and make law they be put in, can all go to jail since you are clearly traitors!
The founding Fathers were passionate Christians who warned the Government against ever taking God out of the lives of this nation. Where did the ideas for this successful government come from? The signers of the Declaration themselves say they owe their ideas to John Locke. Locke’s book Two Treatise of Government was its influence and heavily copied into the Declaration. Although the book is less than 400 pgs long, Locke refers to the Bible 1,500 times in order to show how to properly run a government . This establishes the relationship of the Bible’s influence and success of Americas governmental system.
Just a few Founding Fathers
Benjamin Franklin- It was an 81 year old Franklin who rose up to address an arguing Congress as the Constitution was being drafted to humbly remind them. Quoting the Bible, PSALM 127:1 ” Except the Lord build the House they labor in vain that build it.” That it is by God that we survive and by Him we are here free from our enemies. He firmly believes without Him our nation will crumble. (you can read his whole moving speech at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia)
Benjamin Rush, signer of Declaration and Father of Public schools and creator of the first American Bible Society, started the first Sunday School in america and used the Bible to teach children how to read. He was also a first proponent of education for women and African Americans. In 1791 he penned a work specify why the Bible should be used in schools in . He enclosed a statement saying what would happen to America if the Bible was ever taken out.
” In contemplating the political institution s of this United States, I lament that if we remove the Bible from schools, we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes and take so little pains to prevent them, for this divine book above all others, favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws, and those sober and frugal virtues which constitute the soul of our government.”
James Wilson-Signer of Declaration and Constitution and an original Supreme Court Justice. He organized the first legal training in America. He taught his law students that law is governed by Divine law. His law books contained “Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends and mutual assistants……This revelation is contained in the Holy scriptures.”
Fisher Ames framer of the Bill of Rights- 1801 he penned an article how he noticed that as more kinds of books are introduced to the class room the Bible is being studied considerable less and this is a great concern.
Jame Mchenry, a signer of Constitution and Secretary of War, desired the Bible be made available to every person and is essential in the Nations well being. “The Holy Scriptures…can alone secure to society, order and peace and to the courts of justice and constitutions of government, purity stability and usefulness….”
Elisa Boudinot: a distinguished Founding Father. Among his great accomplishments and contributions was that he was the First President of The American Bible Society, one of the largest societies in the world today. He was a mentor to many other distinguished men who were also members of The American Bible Society.
Noah Webster- Who doesn’t recognize this name? In 1828 he first published his massive volume of work which took 2 decades to compile as he traveled the world learning over 20 languages. Amazing dedication to the USA to help educate everyone. It contained over 70,000 words not found in any other dictionary. He help mold the intellect of every citizen. And it was the Bible that had a direct influence on the dictionary. When providing examples how words were used in sentences he provided a large number of Bible versus. Included in this awesome tool was Websters personal story of conversion to Christ- now excluded, why? it’s a personal story! Webster impacted millions of Americans receiving praise for his gift to the nation for decades that followed.
For those who think american government has always been secular;
Just after the final battle of the American Revolution 1781 and America was free from British policy, including the ban on printing any Bible in English. A plan was prepossessed and advanced in Congress to print the first American Bible in English immediately.
The principles that are our nations foundation came from the Bible. Examples of Bible versus embodied in Constitution:-
Concerning Presidential Eligibility
And there are many, many, many more!!!!!!!
Something I found really interesting:
Inalienable Rights – “We hold our truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and owed by their creator certain inalienable rights”
Truths are not self-evident. Jefferson knew these truths were taught by the Bible and taken from scripture.
God guarantees our rights in the 10 commandments. Our right to private property–Though shall not steal…..Sanctity of Life-Though shall not kill..
And as it is pointed out...Do away with the Commandments,and you do away with our with our inalienable rights………………………..
