As I continue my blog in honor of the July 4th holiday let me reaffirm that the United States is a Christian Nation. More than that, it was established by our forefathers to that end because they were clearly Christian in thinking and religious practice. What follows are just a few of the tens of thousands of quotes available in the national archives that bring a true definition about where we came from and who we are as a people under God.
Liberal historians and atheist public educators may try to rewrite our history and redefine our culture for the ignorant, uneducated masses, but the truth will always be out there, and it’s undeniable. Wake up and read what follows, America. These quotes are the real deal, right from the source. This is who we really are and where we really came from! Happy 4th of July!
“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.” –The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343. George Washington 1st U.S. President.
“Now I will avow, that I then believe, and now believe, that those general Principles of Christianity, are as eternal and immutable, as the Existence and Attributes of God; and that those Principles of Liberty, are as unalterable as human Nature and our terrestrial, mundane System.” –Adams wrote this on June 28, 1813, excerpt from a letter to Thomas Jefferson.
“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever.” John Adams wrote this in a letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 3, 1776.
“I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.” –The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385.
“Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. … Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.” –History of the United States of America, Vol. II, p. 229. John Hancock 1st Signer of the Declaration of Independence
“Here is my Creed. I believe in one God, the Creator of the Universe. that He governs it by His Providence. That He ought to be worshipped… that the most acceptable service we render to Him is in doing good to His other children. That the soul of man is immortal, and will be treated with justice in another life respecting its conduct in this. These I take to be the fundamental points in all sound religion, and I regard them as you do in whatever sect I meet with them. As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and His religion, as he left them to us, is the best the world ever saw, or is likely to see;..” –Benjamin Franklin wrote this in a letter to Ezra Stiles, President of Yale University on March 9, 1790.
“The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made ‘bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God’ (Isaiah 52:10).” Life of John Quincy Adams, p. 248. John Quincy Adams 6th U.S. President
“The gospel of Jesus Christ prescribes the wisest rules for just conduct in every situation of life. Happy they who are enabled to obey them in all situations!” –The Autobiography of Benjamin Rush, pp. 165-166. Benjamin Rush Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution
As I began to research the faith, practices and beliefs of our founding fathers, I was overwhelmed by the volume of irrefutable evidence that is out there. The Christian faith they had, and it’s influence in forming our nation and it’s government is everywhere. Likewise, I was angered and shocked by the clear and deliberate deception that has been systematically introduced to the citizens of these United States. We have been lied to and our history has been run through the filter of humanism until it has lost it’s truth and true color. May these writings help to cement in your heart the very things our founding fathers wanted you to know. That is, for us to remain as a nation we must first remain as a people who are truly “one nation under God”.
