Heritage




America's Christian heritage is being stepped on and trashed more every day by politicians that have no thought as to what our country is all about or have very little thought as to what the best interest of the people is. Did you ever stop to ask yourself where our country has come from, what were the principles that it was founded on and what is the direction that it is headed. Did you ever stop to think what our founding fathers were like, what they would say if they knew the state of our country, and what they said in their speeches and their writings. You would be surprised. Our founding fathers, who were our past presidents, statesmen, and scientists, had a 100% different view of our constitution, and court decisions in their speeches, the papers that they wrote, in their debates, and in their thesis than our leaders do today. Can you imagine what they would say if they knew some of the things that are going on in our country today. Can you imagine our politicians, today, making some of these statements:
(1). "I believe that the next half century will determine if we will advance the cause of Christian civilization or revert to the horrors of brutal paganism." { President Theodore Roosevelt}
(2) "Education is useless without the Bible." {Noah Webster}
(3). "Let every Student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life." . {Harvard University 1642}
(4). "To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances… could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree." { Charles Darwin}
(5). "Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence." {Martin Luther King}
(6). "Whoever shall introduce into public affairs the principles of primitive Christianity will change the face of the world." { Benjamin Franklin}
(7). "If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under." {President Ronald Reagan }
(8) "History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline." – {General Douglas MacArthur}
(9) "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." –{Edmund Burke}
(10) "The New Testament is the very best book that ever was or ever will be known in the world." – {Charles Dickens}
(11) "Why, then, should we who believe in Christ be so surprised at what God can do with a willing man in a laboratory? Some things must be baffling to the critic who has never been born again." – {George Washington Carver }
(12) "But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own." – {President Abraham Lincoln}
(13) "All must admit that the reception of the teachings of Christ results in the purest patriotism, in the most scrupulous fidelity to public trust, and in the best type of citizenship." – {President Grover Cleveland}
(14) "These, and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation....we find everywhere a clear recognition of the same truth." - Church of the Holy Trinity v. The United States { United States Supreme Court 1892,}
(15) "The Americans combine the notions of Christianity and of liberty so intimately in their minds, that it is impossible to make them conceive the one without the other." –{ Alexis de Tocqueville}
After reading those statements we have to ask ourselves what has happen to this country? Where has all the good politicians gone? We now have a president that has said we are no longer a Christian nation. How God must frown on that. Then we have massive killings of unborn babies. We have politicians that would rather pass laws to save a whale than saving a unborn baby. Our kids are being taught in schools that it is nothing wrong with Adam marrying Steve and we now have homosexuals standing behind the scared desk. What an abomination. It is a nation in the last throws before judgment. Any nation that justifies homosexual life style is in its final stages of moral corruption. Prayer and The Bible has been taking out of our schools, court houses, and government buildings. God is not allowed any more. Then we wonder why we have our children are being killed in our schools. Where is this nation headed? We no longer have Christmas to celebrate Jesus' birthday, it is called the holidays so some people will not get offended, but what about offending Jesus? Our politicians and some of the people in this country must realize that without Jesus we have no liberty. There is no safety, no strength, no hope, no liberty, and no salvation for the deep trouble that this country is in, except in Jesus. He is this country's Rock and its only salvation. The hope of this nation and its people are in him. Only in Him will the right way and the truth of all things be returned to this land. Just like it was with Sodom, this country, in the end, will be the end result of reprobate minds.
