"It is impossible to rightly govern . . . without God & the Bible." ~
"I have always said, and will always say, that the studious perusal of the sacred volume will make us better citizens." ~ Thomas Jefferson
"The greatest glory of the American Revolution was this: It connected in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity." ~ John Quincy Adams
"I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth: that God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?" ~ Benjamin Franklin
Isn't it ironic that these great men who birthed and shaped this wonderful country wouldn't be welcome here today? Their faith in Jesus would be ridiculed, their confidence in God would be mocked and their call for holy living would be called "hate speech"! They would face greater danger from their progeny than from the British troops they fought to gain our independence.
Many would claim that we have "come a long way baby" and have outgrown those "superstitious beliefs" of our forefathers. I would say that indeed we have come a long way, but in the wrong direction. We should have built upon the foundation these great men laid for us, but instead we are steadily chipping away at it and I fear we will soon see the walls come tumbling down. What would Washington, Jefferson, Adams and Franklin think of what we have done to this great nation they birthed?
