America is a Christian Nation!

If you truly want to know about History, go back as far as you can. In fact anything prior to 1927 would be a great placeholder as most of what we now know as history, has been washed clean of what is really all about American history and the students today are getting a far different view of our nations history than what our grandparents were taught. It is a filtered version of what they believe should be taught and not what really happened.

Little by little, what we know to be true and what we are told is true is vastly different, so it is no wonder that this next generation and those coming afterwards will have a different version of our nations history than ever before.

I had the wonderful pleasure to sit in our church in Calvary Chapel Chino Hills yesterday with my 17-year-old daughter and get a taste for what is truly a remarkable reminder of our nations foundation as a Christian nation. Don't let the government or our educators fool you for one minute. Do the research yourself and discover what is missing from what is being taught to this generation. Most millennials don't even understand the three branches of our government and what their limited powers really are and why they were established. It is understandable to face confusion when our judicial branch takes on the legislative powers and creates their own laws without the consultation of the people.

We have fallen so far from the biblical values that this great nation was founded on and instead are willing to take what is spoon-fed to us from our nations leaders instead of really understanding what is happening around us and watching our freedoms, rights, and liberties one by one, slowly being stripped away without any protest from the American people. You can't even get American's anymore to agree that this is and has always been a Christian nation. You have stanch liberals telling you that religion and politics don't mix but that is precisely how this nation was born. Using the Bible as the standard for setting up a government and creation of laws is how this all came to be. It is when you have a leader or a king who takes it upon himself to usurp his authority, that the American revolution came into existence.

We still see remnant of this in things like our nations seal, which many overlook or the various places you will find Bible Scriptures all over our nation's historical places. The liberals would have you believe that most of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were deists and atheists with a handful being those who supported the Bible and that is so far from the truth.

America was born when religious men and women came from England in search of religious freedom from King George the 3rd. They wanted the right to worship as they saw fit without a country telling them how. In fact it was just this issue that caused our Founding Fathers to draft the Declaration of Independence to take back their rights and freedoms from King George the 3rd who was acting like a tyrannical leader even though he was separated by the colonists by a vast ocean.

The great seal of our nation was a creation by the brilliant minds of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Around the great seal were the words,"Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God." It shows Moses (in the dress of the High Priest) standing on the shore, and extending his hand over the sea, thereby causing the same to overwhelm Pharaoh who is sitting in an open chariot, a crown on his head and a sword in his hand. Rays from a pillar of fire in the clouds reaching to Moses, to express that he acts by the command of the Deity. This is found in the Bible in Exodus 13.

Three of the five drafters of the Declaration of Independence and three of the defining faces of the Revolution, Franklin, Jefferson and Adams, proposed that Moses be the face of the United States of America. In their eyes, Moses was America's true founding father.

If ever history knew an indispensable man, George Washington was that man. When the 13 colonies needed leadership in the War of Independence, The Continental Congress chose Washington. When liberty seemed lost in the fall of 1777. Washington kept soldiers in the field. When independence lapsed into sectional conflict after the war, the framers asked Washington to chair the Constitutional Convention. And when the new republic elected its first president, again the natural choice was Washington.

"Congress will look upon them as their own Children...You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are. Congress will do everything they can to assist you in this wise intention." ~ May 12, 1779, George Washington.

"Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." John Jay, October 12, 1816, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

"There can be no political happiness, without liberty; there can be no liberty without morality; and there can be no morality, without religion." ~ Historian David Ramsey

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports." Farewell Address 1796, Washington taking Presidential Oath on the Bible.

It is interesting to see and research the Founding Father's faith in this great nation, of which so many fail to acknowledge its Christian foundational beliefs. If you just do the work yourself and open book after book, you will see that there is no loss of facts that will line up with the truth. Just the abhorrent truth that is being told to us regarding the truth meaning of the separation of church and state has got us all in a tailspin. You would think the justices and leaders of this nation would really understand what it means and how to enforce it, instead of stripping away the Ten Commandments from our government buildings and prayer from our schools. These are the very nature of what made our nation so great to begin with. It's not like these things suddenly showed up in these places, they have always been the foundation of our education system when no such curriculum existed. Students were taught from the Bible.

The Ten Commandments and the Bible were the basis for the creation of the laws we have and the system of justice and government we have in this country today, although that is rapidly changing for the worse so that it no longer resembles what it used to. Our three branches of government are no longer staying within the confines that they were established and the rights, freedoms, and liberties we have are slowly being taken away with minimal protest. From the erosion of our families, religious freedoms, and even the inalienable rights guaranteed to all men and women.

All along America has been created using the Bible as our moral compass and the pastors of the church as our facilitators to making that truth apparent and accessible to all. Yet if you look at the America today from the foundation of this nation, it looks vastly different in its foundation and that is not how the Founding Father's today originally planned it would be. But it is the knowledge of the people that is being undermined, and it is that ignorance that is changing things that should never be challenged, because people are willing to be led instead of realizing that all of this nations leaders work for us. Not the other way around.

As we celebrate the 4th of July, I would encourage you to realize that America is a Christian nation, despite what this nation's leaders would have you to believe. America has a chance to become great again, but it is only with the help of Christians and American's working to unite together and make it so under the leadership and guidelines found in the Bible under the leadership of God and Jesus Christ.

Remember the freedoms we have are not without a price, they were paid for by the sacrifices of brave men and women who realized this, so that this day, you can celebrate this day thanks to the blood of those who believed in these truths. Happy 240th America!

“Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer's mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity?” - President John Quincy Adams

"God cannot sustain this free and blessed country which we love and pray for unless the Church will take the right ground. Politics are a part of religions in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to the country as a part of their duty to God."
- Charles Finney

As cultures go, the future can be predicted if we look at the generation that is being raised now. For the most part, that can be a pretty bleak picture unless we pray and seek to do all that we can to reach the next generation for Christ Jesus. There is hope if they follow Him.

Let no one despise your YOUTH, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
- 1Tim. 4:12-13

This is a great post. I have a wonderful book "The Book That Made America: How Our Bible Formed Our Nation" which has enlightened me on many deliberately ignored facts about our history and the men who founded America. I have been posting on Facebook about this.

I never really cared about history in school. But truly enjoyed your thoughts. Keep up the great work.
