 History Lesson
>
> This is worth remembering, because it is true. It's familiar territory,
> but..... Those of you that graduated from school after the early 60's
> were probably never taught this. Our courts have seen to that !
> Did you know that 52 of the 55 signers of "The Declaration of
> Independence"
> were orthodox, deeply committed, Christians? The other three all
> believed in the Bible as the divine truth, the God of scripture, and His
> personal intervention. It is the same Congress that formed the American
> Bible Society, immediately after creating the Declaration of
> Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import
> 20,000 copies of Scripture for the people of this nation.
> Patrick Henry, who is called the firebrand of the American Revolution,
> is
> still remembered for his words, "Give me liberty or give me death"; but
> in current textbooks, the context of these words is omitted. Here is
> what he actually said: "An appeal to arms and the God of hosts is all
> that is left us. But we shall not fight our battle alone. There is a
> just God that presides over the destinies of nations. The battle, sir,
> is not to the strong alone. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be
> purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God. I
> know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or
> give me death."
> These sentences have been erased from our textbooks. Was Patrick Henry a
> Christian? The following year, 1776, he wrote this: "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. For that reason alone, people of other faiths
> have been afforded freedom of worship here."
> Consider these words that Thomas Jefferson wrote in the front of his
> well-
> worn Bible: "I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the
> doctrines of Jesus. I have little doubt that our whole country will soon
> be rallied to the unity of our creator." He was also the chairman of the
> American Bible Society, which he considered his highest and most
> important role.
> On July 4, 1821, President Adams said, "The highest glory of the
> American
> Revolution was this: "It connected in one indissoluble bond the
> principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."
> Calvin Coolidge, our 30th President of the United States reaffirmed this
> truth when he wrote, "The foundations of our society and our government
> rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to
> support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically
> universal in our country."
> In 1782, the United States Congress voted this resolution: "The Congress
> of
> the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all
> schools."
> William Holmes McGuffey is the author of the McGuffey Reader, which was
> used for over 100 years in our public schools with over 125 million
> copies sold until it was stopped in 1963. President Lincoln called him
> the "Schoolmaster of the Nation." Listen to these word of Mr. McGuffey:
> "The Christian religion is the religion of our country. >From it are
> derived our nation, on the character of God, on the great moral Governor
> of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our
> free Institutions. >From no source has the author drawn more
> conspicuously than from the sacred Scriptures. From all these extracts
> from the Bible, I make no apology."
> Of the first 108 universities founded in America, 106 were distinctly
> Christian, including the first, Harvard University, chartered in 1636.
> In the original Harvard Student Handbook, rule number 1 was that
> students seeking entrance must know Latin and Greek so that they could
> study the Scriptures: "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, John
> 17:3; and therefore to lay Jesus Christ as the only foundation for our
> children to follow the moral principles of the Ten Commandments."
> James Madison, the primary author of the Constitution of the United
> States,
> said this: "We have staked the whole future of all our political
> constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves
> according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments."
> Today, we are asking God to bless America. But, how can He bless a
> Nation
> that has departed so far from Him? Prior to September 11, He was not
> welcome in America. Most of what you read in this article has been
> erased from our textbooks. Revisionists have rewritten history to remove
> the truth about our country's Christian roots.
> You are encouraged to share with others, so that the truth of our
> nation's
> history will be told.
> John 3:16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten
> Son,
> that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life!
> This information shared is only a drop of cement to help secure a

Oklahoma Howdy to Forrest,

THANKS!

I am still optimistic America will go in reverse and again give God the honor and respect HE deserves.

Without God, it isn't American history.

Without God, it isn't America.


In Christ,
