The Declaration 5 points

We continue to be, though presently endangered, the longest ongoing Constitutional Republic in the history of the world. A blessing like this is not an accident or by chance but that God has shed His grace on us. If you ever study the documents of the Revolutionary Period you’d see a picture and some obvious facts. Virtually all those involved in the founding work of our country were God fearing men.


The Founders were deeply influenced by a Biblical view of man and government, with a sober understanding of the depravity of man’s fallen nature. They devised a system of limited government, with a separation of powers, and checks and balances. The Founders understood that fear of God, moral leadership and righteous citizens were necessary for their effort to succeed. They structured a political climate that was encouraging to Christianity and accommodating to religion rather than hostile to it. We have been slowly drifting away from this political climate while most Christians are either unaware or uninterested.


Secularists may try to deny it but Christianity was the prevailing moral and intellectual influence shaping the nation at its outset. The Founders, though, did stop short of giving their Christian religion a position of legal privilege or rule over its citizens. They specifically prohibited establishing a religion of the state but they did not prohibit religion influencing the state. It was freedom of religion not freedom from religion.


God bless America and have a blessed Fourth of July.
