The Christian Heritage of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - Part 17
AMERICA: The Western State of Israel
By: Tommie Spurgeon
The President (Barack Obama) that we now have, doesn’t keep the laws on immigration or the marriage amendment act that was passed by both the Senate and Congress because he thinks that they are unfair laws. He tells those that are to enforce those laws by executive command not to obey or enforce those laws because they are unjust. If the President doesn/t have to keep the laws of this country because he thinks that they are unjust then the Christians in this nation have equal right to disobey the unjust laws that have been imposed on us through the ACLU and other socialist legal groups. No one should be able to sue or arrest any American citizen over these issues. We need God back in our country. We have a big job to do when we do. One is to keep protecting and defending Christian liberties and to defend the nation of Israel as well. If we see any Christian making a stand against these injustices we need to join with them in the cause. May God bless and keep America under the shadow of His mighty Wings.
One of the very disturbing things today is that the take over of Christianity by our enemies is done through lies and false interpretation of our founders. The view of tolerance towards ungodly living and principles is bringing swift destruction upon us and our families. When we say that we are a Christian nation President Obama says that we used to be but we are not any longer. Is that really true? Or does he just want it to be that way. We were founded as a Christian nation and made a covenant with God in the Mayflower Compact. If you make a deal with God he holds you to it.
This is one of the questions that may be in the minds of many people today. Is America a Christian nation or is it merely a secular nation that allows religion to exist. Is it a multiple religious nation? Some believe that it is; but what did our founding Fathers have to say about all of this? Before we find out what they said I would like to express the fact that the Christian Religion is the most tolerant of all faiths in the world. We believe in loving everyone and allowing others to make their own choices. All Americans should be free to worship as they feel directed from their hearts. Our only hope is that they would make the right choices.
America's founders believed this. George Washington said, "True religion (Christianity) offers to government its surest support." John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the United States, argued, "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."
President Thomas Jefferson said that: "No nation has ever existed or been governed without religion. Nor can be. The Christian religion is the best religion that has been given to man and I, as Chief Magistrate of this nation, am bound to give it the sanction of my example."
President Thomas Jefferson, March 4, 1805, offered A National Prayer for Peace:
"Almighty God, Who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will. Bless our land with honorable ministry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitude brought hither out of many kindred’s and tongues. Endow with Thy spirit of wisdom those to whom in Thy name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and thatthrough obedience to Thy law, we may show forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth. In time of prosperity fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in Thee to fail; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen."
James Madison also encouraged public officials to declare openly and publicly their Christian beliefs and testimony — as when he wrote to William Bradford (who became Attorney General under President George Washington):
"I have sometimes thought there could not be a stronger testimony in favor of religion or against temporal enjoyments, even the most rational and manly, than for men who occupy the most honorable and gainful departments and who are rising in reputation and wealth, publicly to declare their unsatisfactoriness by becoming fervent advocates in the cause of Christ; and I wish you may give in your evidence in this way."
