One Nation Under God

The intent of the founders of this once great nation was that it was to be ‘one nation under God.’ The Christian God.

That is a fact which, in today’s culture, is ignored by most and denied by many. However it is still a fact. Today, however, there is a continuing trend in schools, colleges, universities and indeed throughout the country to ignore the words of the founders, the words of the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution. By lack of proper education and deception our populace is not aware of the intent of the founders of their own country. People today are taught that religion is unnecessary and worse, religion leads to ignorance and intolerance and has no place in our nation. This is completely at odds with the founders and the documents establishing this country upon the Earth.

I will direct you to the thoughts and writings of the founders of this nation beginning with Fisher Ames. I doubt many will recognize the name but Fisher Ames was a congressman who took part in the creation of our Constitution. When our founders were drafting the Bill of Rights it was Fisher Ames who authored the First Amendment. Liberal judges have misinterpreted the First Amendment to exclude religion, Christianity in particular, from any form of government. But, what was the author’s intent? Here are Fisher Ames' own words as he was speaking about a new trend in schools which were relying more and more on non-biblical texts in the classroom:

 “...we have a dangerous trend beginning to take place in our education....We've become accustomed of late to putting little books in the hands of children containing fables with moral lessons. We are spending less time in the classroom on the Bible, which should be the principle text in our schools. The Bible states these great moral lessons better than any other man made book.”

Remember, this was written by the author of the First Amendment himself. I think it obvious the man never intended the amendment to exclude the bible from our educational curriculum. In fact nowhere in the constitution does it call for a “separation of church and state”. That came from a later, personal writing of Thomas Jefferson about concerns others had expressed about the government infringing on the freedom of religion. He was reassuring them, saying they needn’t worry because the US had established a “separation of church and state.” Never was it Jefferson’s or any other founder’s intent that the United States exclude Christianity from governing. Their intent was only that there not be established a theocracy!

Two years later Jefferson, as an official Presidential act, ordered the extension of the 1787 Act of Congress that designated areas of Federal land “for the sole use of Christian Indians and the Moravian Brethren Missionaries for the civilizing of the Indians and promoting Christianity”. That's right, the actual language that Jefferson ordered to take place was “promoting Christianity” by the Federal Government. He ordered the same governmental promotion of Christianity to the Wyandotte Indians in 1806 and even again in 1807 to the Cherokee Indians. So ask yourself logically, when Thomas Jefferson used those words “separation of Church and State” in that letter, do you really think he meant a Nativity Scene can't sit on government property or a judge can't hang a picture of the 10 Commandments on his wall?

One of the primary documents establishing the United States of America as a sovereign body is the Paris Peace treaty. Signed in 1783 and finally ending the war between the US and Great Britain and establishing the US as a sovereign nation the treaty was made in the “name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.” The preamble to this Treaty states it is based upon the “Holy and undivided Trinity.” The concept of the holy Trinity is unique to Christianity. This statement means unequivocally the United States was founded on the Christian faith.

Both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution refer to our Creator and to God. Writings by the authors and founders expound on their belief and faith in the Christian God and their desire for a Judeo-Christian nation:

Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be." John Adams, February 22, 1756

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams (Federer, p. 10)

"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible" George Washington (Federer, p.660)

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.... And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion ... Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail to the exclusion of religious principle." George Washington's Farewell Address

"Let [the Constitution] be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges, let it be written in primers, in spelling books and in almanacs, let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation." (Abraham Lincoln, "The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions", January 27, 1838)

"We have appointed a continental fast.  Millions will be upon their knees at once before their great Creator, imploring His forgiveness and blessing; His smiles on American councils and arms." John Adams

"The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity, let the Blackguard [scoundrel, rogue] Paine say what he will."  and again later to John Paine: "The people of New England, if you will allow me to use a Scripture phrase, are fast returning to their first love.  Will you excite among them the spirit of angry controversy at a time when they are hastening to amity and peace?  I am told that some of our newspapers have announced your intention to publish an additional pamphlet upon the principles of your Age of Reason.  Do you think that your pen, or the pen of any other man, can unchristianize the mass of our citizens, or have you hopes of converting a few of them to assist you in so bad a cause?" John Adams Regarding the Age of Reason

History will also afford frequent opportunities of showing the necessity of a public religion...and the excellency of the Christian religion above all others. Benjamin Franklin

"So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society.  I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year." John Quincy Adams

"The Bible is the sheet-anchor of our liberties." U.S. Grant

"That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests." Andrew Jackson

"In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength." Robert E. Lee

"I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man.  All the good from the Saviour of the world is communicated to us through this book." Abraham Lincoln

“We again make our solemn appeal to the God of heaven to decide between you and us.  And we pray that, in the doubtful scale of battle, we may be successful as we have justice on our side, and that the merciful Saviour of the world may forgive our oppressors." Samuel Adams "Father of the American Revolution" (to Britain)

"You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ.  Congress will do everything they can to assist you in this wise intention." George Washington

Even the Liberty Bell has a Bible verse engraved upon it!  "Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof. LEVITICUS 25:10"

I don’t think that it can be any more clear that the founders and great men of antiquity intended for the US to be a country governed by the principles of the Judeo-Christian bible. While there is no doubt that the founders opposed the establishment of a theocracy there is also no doubt that they intended the country to include Biblical Christianity in governing and educating its people. All the efforts to remove Christianity from our government and our schools is done based on a deliberate misinterpretation of the First Amendment by an activist Supreme Court and subsequent godless men and women.

There are many people dedicated to erasing Christianity from the face of this nation. In doing so they bring upon us all the wrath of God, for He is a Holy God and will not brook trespass!

"When the land sins against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it... and will cut off man and beast from it, says the Lord God" (Ezekiel 14:13-14). 

The time has come for God to judge the United States of America. This is a country that was founded on the very Word of God, blessed by Him for that and now, upon turning our collective back on Him, we will be judged.

I pray that in the face of God’s holy judgment that His Spirit will work in the hearts and minds of the American People and bring about a spiritual revival, that this country can regain its place as the bastion of Christianity on Earth.
