The United States-A Christian Nation


Look at the time we are living in today. We, as a Nation, have demanded God to get out of our government, out of our schools and out of our lives; we are now reaping what has been sown as seen in the destruction of the family, eradication of morals, knifings and mass shootings in our schools, teen rape and drug use at an all time high. This is most definitely NOT what the founding fathers of our country had in mind…


*The Liberty Bell is inscribed with Leviticus 25:10 “…and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof;”


*In 1774, The Continental Congress opened with Reverend Jacob Dushe’ (Pron- Doo-Shay) with a lengthy time of prayer and a 3 hour Bible study on Psalm 35. John Adams is quoted as saying, “He would have ridden 100 miles on horseback to have not missed that time of profound prayer and praise.”


*What was studied in Psalm 35? Verses such as: And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation. 18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people. 22 This thou hast seen, O Lord: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me. 27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. 28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.


*Almost all of the signers of The Declaration of Independence were members of Christ Church.


*John Adams is quoted as saying during the difficulties during the Revolutionary War in 1777 that, “We must fear God and repent of our sin.” There was a call to the new Nation for a time of prayer and fasting!


*Out of 56 members of the founding fathers, nearly half were graduates of Bible College.


*In 1782 an English Bible was printed specifically for use in schools by authorization of The United States Congress.


*John Quincy Adams is also quoted as saying, “There is an in dissolvable bond between Christ and civil government.”


*In 1778 John Jay, the first U.S. Supreme Court Justice, asked ministers to pray over the jury prior to their hearing of a case.


*George Washington’s farewell address included the statement: “Religion and morality cannot be separated from The United States.”


*Over 34% of the quotes pertaining to the founding of The United States came directly from The Bible.


*In 1892, The United States Supreme Court declared that, “This is a Christian Nation.” And, throughout the 16 pages of this document, 80 precedents are set for the preceding statement.


*President James Madison appointed Joseph Story, known as the father of juris prudence, to The Supreme Court. Justice Story read the unanimously agreed upon statement of the court: “Why may not the Bible, especially The New Testament, be read, taught as a divine revelation in the school and its general precepts expounded?”


*The “Free Exercise Clause” in The First Amendment pertained to; The government had to protect expression of religion.


*The “Separation of church and state” actually came from a thank you letter written by Thomas Jefferson in 1802 to the Baptist Church thanking them for their support and expressing his belief that government should not have a hand in creating a mandatory denomination. (i.e. Baptist, Methodist, Anglican, etc;) This idea of “separation” did not originate from Congress, Supreme Court or any branch of the government. The actual words used were, “wall of separation.” This pertained to government protecting religion and not interfering with religious activities.


*In 1856, The United States Congress stated, “The thing that holds this country together is the pure doctrines and divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”


*Only in 1962, The United States Supreme Court ordered the separation of religious principles from schools. (Things sure went downhill fast in 50 years, huh?)


*In 1985, The Supreme Court then declared that even, “silent, voluntary student prayer was not acceptable.”


So, is it any wonder that we are in the condition we are in today? God is a gentleman. If we as a nation, continually turn a blind eye to the principles and standards set forth by God, then He will surely give us what we asked for.


2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”


 "We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us." Abraham Lincoln 1863
