America..One Nation UNDER GOD

I was oh so lucky, as you might have read earlier this week, to hear Phil Robertson (from Duck Dynasty) speak.
He spoke talked about  America & what our Founding Fathers built this nation on...
The Biblical foundation of our constitution.
So, I started doing some research..
And I thought I would share the faith of our fathers...
George Washington, First president and father of our country said... 

"It is impossible to rightly govern … without God and the Bible," and also "To the distinguished Character of a Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the most distinguished Character of Christian.

James Madison, the architect of the constitution wrote...

"We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."

Patrick Henry, American revolutionary leader, said,  
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Thomas Jefferson..

"God who gave us life, gave us liberty."
A neat little fact.
Did you know that 'Under God' was not added to the pledge of allegiance until 1954!
That was NOT too long ago.
'Under God' not only makes the pledge a "patriotic oath" but a public prayer.
There are numerous times our founders quoted the bible, but this is enough evidence for me.
It seems obvious.
It is right there, black and white, written in the History of our country..
That America was founded by Christians.
On biblical principles.
What is our country's motto?
"In GOD we trust."
It's even on our money, that we use every day.
So my point is..we are always told to go back to our roots..
Where we came from..
I think the same for our country.
Let us go back to our roots.
When it first began...
In 1776..
When The Ten Commandments in a courthouse did not offend people..
When we fought for a country worth fighting for..
When freedom's were not taken for granted..
When not having God in our country..
in our allegiance..
in our lives...
was just, unthinkable.

“Without wise leadership, a nation falls; with many counselors, there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14

"Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.” 1 Peter 2:13-17
(The Message Translation)
