I have here enclosed quotes from our Founding Fathers on God and America. These quotes I have taken from Swamp Bubbles off the internet.
“The highest glory of the American Revolution was this that it connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.”-John Quincy Adams
“ The Bible is the cornerstone of liberty. A student’s perusal of the sacred Volume will make him a better citizen, a better father, a better husband.”- Thomas Jefferson
“ The Bible is the rock on which our Republic rests.”- Andrew Jackson
“ We have staked the future of American civilization upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” – James Madison
“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly implore His protection and favor.”- George Washington
“ God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”- Abraham Lincoln
The above are quotes from our first Presidents. How could God not have blessed a country in infancy with such strong beliefs from our Forefathers. When you read America’s early obstacles that had to be overcome how can one not think that there was a God that was blessing America in her quest to survival.
As I was growing up in the fifty’s there was so much explaining to us youngsters as to the fact that America is blessed by God. We heard this from our Mother’s, relatives, some teachers at times. Sometimes when you are writing you do comparisons as you are writing. As I am writing at this minute, writing about the fact that our grownups were talking about God having blessed America, and as I am writing that statement I am thinking, do the youngsters of today hear from their grownups with the same heart and conviction that our country is blessed from God as we did? I am sure we all have our own answer to that. The real question is does God think America has kept her beliefs in such a fashion as to not upset Him?
America still is 76% Christians. Someone can say how can America be totally judged by God when there is 24% of the population who are not Christians, but you see that is not God’s problem. God has his laws and they cannot be broken.
You and I should not have all this weight on our shoulders, I will explain later how I think we can save our country from destruction. Now some will say, now I am promoting the fact that God will destroy us. That is not my call and it should not be anybody’s call, but there is a way to prevent it.This does not mean that we should start judging what is morally right or wrong. Even though we know, because all the answers to this is in the Bible. Jesus has taught us to not judge others. Who goes or does not go to heaven or hell, is a judgment to make for yourself and do not judge others. In the Bible there are a few readings where God will destroy a nation if that nation does not follow God’s Commandment.
The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. And the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.
I am in a mind set that being a Christian I am trying hard to honor the teachings of Jesus. Here is where it becomes complex. What if you see the morals of your beloved country decaying right in front of your eyes, and I know in God’s eyes America is not in a favorable light as it once was. I mentioned above that there is a way to prevent this. I am under the opinion that if Jesus were to come back tomorrow, America is doomed. If Jesus takes decades or centuries to return, America has time. We are trying to make ourselves right in God’s eyes never mind trying to save a whole nation. Here is the answer I feel it takes to save our nation. If you are Republican, vote for your Republican candidate. If you are a Democrat, vote for your Democratic candidate, but absolutely make sure you are voting for a God fearing person. A God fearing politician will pick God fearing judges, and by picking God fearing judges eventually the decay in America’s morality will end. Only then will America once again be saved by God.
