Great minds who Acknowledged God and the Christian Faith

Patrick Henry: "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 this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here."

Henry stated boldly that America was not founded by mere religious persons, but by Christians, and upon the Gospel of Christ!

Many today want to divide the Christian faith from Government and Law, but John Quincy Adams stated this: “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."

Atheists want to remove all references to the God of the Bible and Christianity through the misuses of the courts and the legal system.

Thomas Jefferson stated: “Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure, when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that they are a gift of God? Indeed, I tremble for my countrymen, when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Calvin Coolidge
“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.”

Abraham Lincoln
had a few poignant words that are still for us today, take heed: “We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God 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. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”

Here is a quote from a fellow I never heard of before, but it’s a good one

“Even those who have renounced Christianity and attack it, in their inmost being still follow the Christian ideal, for hitherto neither their subtlety nor the ardour of their hearts has been able to create a higher ideal of man and of virtue than the ideal given by Christ of old.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Our nation, our very system of law, our freedom and liberties all founded on God and the Bible, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Anyone who would refuse to acknowledge this is being dishonest, and showing their absolute ignorance, it doesn't take a huge amount of intelligence to realize that this nation was founded on the principles of the Bible.
