How long will it be before Christianity is taken from our Freedom? I feel that I will be long gone before that happens, but some things are already happening. Like the Ten Commandments, or Prayer out of the schools. Prayer before games or events is also forgotten or not allowed.
Beginning of Mayflower Compact
“Having undertaken, for the Glory of God and advancement of the Christian Faith and Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the First Colony in the Northern Parts of Virginia…”
Beginning of the Declaration of Independence
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
QUOTES OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS
“What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ.”
"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible."
“The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity…I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and the attributes of God.” [June 28, 1813; Letter to Thomas Jefferson]
“We recognize no Sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus!”
“[July 4th] ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.”
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
I have been to Washington D.C. and have seen quotes by other Presidents. They are great quotes and Christianity is found in a lot of Presidents. The thing that concerns me is that some just seem to be quotes because the U.S.A. sure has changed since Our Founding Fathers and I wish George would have ben a king instead of a President. Since he declined and said a President, it seems that less people are voting each term and less responsiblity for the President. I will continue to pray for our leaders of The United States of America and pray that they will turn toward Christianity more.
These are great Quotes from Ronald Regan
"Within the covers of the Bible are all the answers for all the problems men face. The Bible can touch hearts, order minds, and refresh souls."
"Indeed, it is an indisputable fact that all the complex and horrendous questions confronting us at home and worldwide have their answer in that single book [the Bible.]"
"The average age of the world's greatest civilization has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence.
From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependence back into bondage."Alexander Tyler
