Summary: A Patriotic message chronicling the Christian founding of this great nation and how we need to stand for God during these hard times
A Christian Nation
Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
Recently a national radio talk show host and a listener were talking about Christianity in America
As the conversation continued the host, an avowed agnostic said
Why do Christians think they had anything special to do with the founding of this country
Anybody who reads history books knows Christianity was no more involved in America’s founding than any other religion
Unfortunately and inaccurately that seems to be the prevalent thought of many Americans today
This is typical to what our country in some ways has come to
The truth doesn’t matter any more
But I like to say
The truth has no agenda
It is simply the truth
But the truth is we are a nation that has been shaped by the Judeo-Christian principles found throughout the Bible
We are a Biblical nation from our very roots
But are we a Christian nation?
If being a Christian nation means that everyone is a Christian, or acts like a Christian, or that all of our national decisions are based on Christian principles
Then no, we are not a Christian nation
But if it means that Christianity was the overwhelming majority of our Founding Fathers
And if its influence is undeniably seen in our nation’s Founding Documents
And that Christian ethics and moral codes were accepted as the rule for our social order
Then yes, we are a Christian nation
Certainly those throughout America’s history were not timid about this fact
So is God part of America’s heritage?\
There is much confusion over our nation’s heritage
There is much confusion over the beliefs of our founding fathers
Today it is popular for uniformed people to say that the founders were not Christians
One of the first acts of the United States Congress was to authorize the printing of 20,000 Bibles for the Indians
The men who founded our country clearly tied it to Christian principles
Syndicated columnist Don Feder stated
By today’s standards the founding fathers were the religious right
In 1779 after the First Amendment was written the Supreme Court stated the following
By our form the Christian religion is the established religion
And all sects and denominations of Christians are placed under the same equal footing
Tim Lehaye says that Christian consensus is easily verified by the fact that prior to 1789
(the year 11 of the 13 states ratified the Constitution)
Many of the states still had constitutional requirements that a man must be a Christian in order to hold public office
52 of the 55 Founding Fathers who worked on the Constitution were members of orthodox churches
The Legislature of New York declared in 1838
This is a Christian nation
99/100ths if not a larger proportion of our whole population believe in the general doctrines of the Christian religion
In a report delivers by the House and Senate judiciary committees on March 27, 1854
They said that if the founders would have known that there would be an attack against Christianity
They would have strangled the revolution in the cradle
Wonder what they would think today?
Even the Supreme Court in 1892 declared in the court’s opinion the United States was a Christian nation
We could do this all night
This information is not fiction
It is all facts of history
Anyone can research
But we are living in a time of confusion and misinformation
We as a nation are confused about where God belongs
As time goes by, we are pushing God further and further out of society
What did our Founding Fathers fight and die for?
What did they lay their lives on the line for?
Benjamin Franklin stated
Gentlemen, we must all hang together, or surely we will all hang separately
They were risking their lives for what they believed in
Did they do this so that one day women could have the choice to dispose of the inconvenience of a mass of tissue
AKA murder the innocent baby within her body
Jesus said “Let the children come unto me”
Did our founding fathers fight for the rights of perverts committing an abomination
Literally could be translated as something disgusting
Did they fight for the education of our children in humanistic beliefs?
Did they fight for more government control
To take away our ability to express our Christian beliefs in the public arena?
Did they fight so that Muslims and Atheists could have more rights than Christians?
That is what our children are being taught in the schools
Where as our education system gone?
Prior to the Civil War 90% of all of America’s College Presidents were preachers of the Gospel
Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, William and Mary and Columbia were founded by Christian preachers
