Did you Know…?
Thomas Jefferson, with input of the other Founding Fathers, based our entire system on Judeo-Christian Values because they felt it was the best and most honest system there was.
Nowhere in the Constitution Does It Talk About Separation of Church and State and the concept was pick up from a letter between Jefferson and a cousin, but the context was changed. The concept was to protect the church from the government, not the government from the church.
The Founding Fathers believed in Freedom of Religion and welcomed all faiths… all variations of Christianity, Judaism, Muslims, etc or the right not to worship at all, but they realized that God had to be at the center of our lives and society for freedom and the Republic to survive. And although they welcomed everyone to worship as they pleased, this Country was founded as a Christian Nation and the notion that they people we welcomed to come for freedom then telling us that we could no longer worship our religion or our way… was not and would not have been a consideration. 78 % of all Americans say they are Christians, even with the decay of families going to church and 84% of all Americans say they believe in God.
Thomas Jefferson wrote a book called the Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth. It was the words of Jesus in four different languages. It was given to each freshman Congressman when they came to the Hill from 1904 until the Progressive era… sometime in the 1920’s, because it was considered valuable information for each of them to have.
9 of the original 13 colonies had a state religions which are and were perfectly legal, but the Federal Government was restricted from starting an official National Religion to prevent religious control by the government like in England. (This concept of states’ rights correlates directly with the argument that the left is making about National Healthcare being legal, using Massachusetts as an example of a state that has mandated healthcare as justification for required National Healthcare… much is left to the states and the people, that is not granted to the Federal Government!)
Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin have been portrayed as the least religious Founding Fathers and as Deist or Atheists rather than Christians and are then help up in re-written history and Progressive arguments as examples of Renaissance Men. Both are interesting non-conventional figures in many ways, the not being Christians with strong beliefs in God is complete fabrication.
You used to be able to find the 10 Commandments in every Federal building and every State House.
Thomas Jefferson started a church in Congress, where Christian services were held for 2,000 people and the U.S. Marine Corps Band played, every Sunday. It featured the first female pastor and a black choir director.
Thomas Jefferson signed every letter: In the Year of Our Lord, Christ…
Jefferson wrote some 19,000 letters and only in 6 did he raise any question about religion in any way… yet those 6 are continuously quoted.
Founding Father Benjamin Wilson, who was one of the few men who helped draft both the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution and became one of the first Supreme Court Judges said, “You can’t have good civil law if you cut out divine law!”
Samuel Adams, called Father of the Revolution, printed the first U.S. editions of the Holy Bible in conjunction with the Continental Congress to be used in school.
Two textbooks: The life of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Life of the Wives of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence used to be standard and required textbooks for all. (They have just been reprinted by WallBuilders). In the latest textbook curriculum hearings in Texas, Thomas Jefferson and his accomplishments are virtually left out of the newest history books, and study of the Founding Fathers in general or the Constitution is minimal. (Former President Ronald Reagan has met the same fate.) Texas and California textbooks have been used by the majority of the Country for years now, because they order so many and set the standard.
Founding Father Benjamin Rush, the Father of American Medicine and the Father of American Psychiatry, had a dream about a book of letters written between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, after Adams and Jefferson had a falling out. He also dreamed that Jefferson and Adams would die on the same day, on July 4th… and so they did 17-years later. He wrote Adams who felt Rush’s dream was providential and was willing to again communicate with Jefferson. Due to this dream the two old founders began their communication again, and years later their letters were compiled into a book and those plus so many other letters give us the insight that we have into that time. (FF Richard Henry Lee also left much invaluable documentation from that time.)
Approximately two years ago, HBO and Tom Hanks put out a special on John Adams. It was spectacular in many ways, but it purposely left out the importance of Faith in Adam’s life and falsely made Benjamin Franklin look like a lecherous, self-indulgent and faithless fool.
Benjamin Rush said, “If we ever take the Bible out of school, we will spend our time and money fighting crime.” (The same can be said for fighting uncontrolled teen pregnancy and abortions!)
In 1926 a group of Progressive Cornell Professors wrote a book called the Godless Nation, with no footnotes for their sources. They represented George Washington as being unreligious. That book and the information was contested a year later and proven untrue, but the Progressives… who have been re-writing textbooks and U.S. history are still quoting the Cornell book. George Washington had no natural children but adopted his step-daughter, who lived in her parents’ home for years. She was pressed at one point on her father’s Christianity. Although a much longer answer, essentially she said “to question the depth of his Christianity and faith in God is like questioning his Patriotism”… enough said!
In the 1940’s the Federal Government put out a poster with the Bible on it… with the claim that by fighting the Nazi’s and Communist’s they were saving the world for Christianity.
In the 1960’s the Federal Government put out various posters for war bonds including one set with Joan of Arc and another with the Nativity Scene on them and the Department of Agriculture put out a series of Fire and Flame posters and flyers with Smokey the Bear and direct quotes from the Bible.
However, in the 1960’s the Progressives infiltrated churches and began the teachings of social justice, ecumenicalism and new evangelism instead of Biblical teaching, just like they infiltrated schools and the educational system and began re-writing the history our children were (are) learning and taking God out of school. They also changed the policy of teaching Constitutional Law in Law School to studying Case Law… which allows corruption and social interpretation rather than the true law as stated in the U.S. Constitution.
Checkout WallBuilders.com about the history of the Founding Fathers on God, Jesus and Christianity – Their Founder wrote Original Intent and is travelling with GB on his educational tour which focuses on us starting over and rebuilding this Country using the Founders principles of Faith, Hope, Charity, Duty and Truth. And you cannot rebuild a house on a rotted foundation. So in order to rebuild our country we need to understand our history, including the Founder’s Faith in God, to even start.
A Patriot’s History of the United St…
We need to get back to the original sources… the Bible, the Constitution, and original documents and history books.
“The only way for the Republic to survive is to have an educated populace” …Thomas Jefferson – We have allowed ourselves and our children to forget our history, worship false idols and indulge themselves instead of reading the Bible and honoring God, and allowed secular Progressives (who are a small minority in our society) to takeover our society and intimidate us against our believes by using Political Correctness and their interpretation of the law and morality against us.
Where we go from here and whether we save our Country, our Children and our Beliefs is us to us~
Subject: You’re not going to like this! – Just received this from my Cousin… and plugged it into Snopes… It says it is false… kind of, but the explanation didn’t make me feel much better
Sent by Retired Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington, Va.
"I wanted to give you all some disturbing information on our wonderful president. I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation which provides hunting and fishing trips to children with life-threatening illnesses. This past weekend we had our annual banquet / fundraiser event in Starkville. "As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube, a highly decorated U .S. Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and didn’t have much of a chance for survival, to come. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our function.
Everything was on go until Obama made a policy that NO U.S. SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT ANY FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE. Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us.. Didn’t know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. Wonder what kind of news we all will receive next. You’re just starting to see The Obama Nation. Your religion is on the list next. I don’t know about you, but this makes me furious.
What a rotten thing to do by the "commander-in-chief".
And I’m afraid we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
After my ranting and raving… I checked this out on snopes…
Snopes: You’re not going to like this! – In short it explains that, according to the U.S. Army the issue is not “faith-based” or a new ‘interpretation’ of policy, but rather an application of a long-standing policy that prohibits uniformed military personnel from engaging in most political, fundraising, and religious activities… and again it is a matter of interpretation.
They are allowed to participate in such activities but only while off-duty and out of uniform… and as long as they aren’t paid of their time.
The obvious question here needs to be why?? Why can’t they engage in an activity for dying children?? In uniform… representing themselves, the military in a good light and their Country?? And not that getting paid seemed to be an issue, why can’t they get paid if they are going something extra… at least when it is on their own time.
You can bet that if you go back and check it out, it is based on some time of bad experience or law suit, etc involving Political Correctness and probably the ACLU!!
BTW, a lot of the info on snopes is good, but it is a liberal source and I would not depend on their information or opinions to be 100% correct or without bias in many cases…
As far as the contention that our religious freedom is under attack, or that any or all of our rights and freedoms are under attack, is true without question. Obama removed the word Christ out of his Easter Greeting Speech this past Monday an last week a town in Iowa changed Good Friday to some ridiculous thing like Spring Holiday. It was changed back, this time, due to pressure, but unless we change our entire perspective as a people and a nation, there will be a next time… when it won’t be reversed.
Just this week our Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom to Assemble, the Right to Bear Arms, our sovereignty, our national security, parental rights, and school curriculum has been and is under attack and in the news, as well as the constant over-reach and over-spending of the most left-leaning and least voter compliant Congress and Administration in America’s history. If that statement and concept doesn’t scare you, then I don’t know what will.
God Bless America!
As I am getting ready to post this… I am hearing a new alert that a High School Student Body President in the Santa Rosa (CA) school district was told that he cannot say God Bless after he gives a speech.~
