The Divine Responsibility of Every American ~
Especially American Christians!
Did you know you are living in a land of miraculous wonders and divine foundations wrought by the hand of God for eternal purposes?
Our Founding Fathers believed this to be true and established covenant documents to form Constitutional government never before seen in the earth to accomplish that purpose.
But, you certainly won’t hear this on T.V. MSM news or read it in public school textbooks anymore.
To wave the red, white, and blue over America in the spirit of 1776 and stand at the gap for our nation's full restoration to our manifest destiny in His Story, awaken the slumbering Lady Liberty within with Links to these INSPIRATIONAL PRIMARY SOURCE TOOLS . . .
If you can’t take the years necessary to peruse the volumes vaulted in the Library of Congress, and historical libraries across the country—let alone the personal collections of a myriad of present day patriots who are caretakers of history in private museums—then scholarly compilations are a good place to start.
American history is a continuation of God’s story—His Story—redeeming fallen man to a living relationship with Him. It is not and never has been a pretty story. But—it is glorious and stirring and possesses a beauty all its own.
For American His Story detailing the uniqueness of our nation’s Christian foundations, I recommend the following volumes. Click to purchase:

Here are some of the amazing words
you’ll find pressed between the pages:
"Statesmen . . . may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand."
"The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity . . . I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God."
John Adams, Second President of the United States
Signer and Architect of the Declaration of Independence
"He who made all men hath made the truths necessary to human happiness obvious to all . . . Our forefathers opened the Bible to all."
Samuel Adams, Signer of the Declaration of Independence
"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time, they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure . . . are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."
Charles Carroll, Signer of the Declaration of Independence
"A Bible and a newspaper in every house, a good school in every district - all studied and appreciated as they merit - are the principal support of virtue, morality, and civil liberty."
Benjamin Franklin, Statesmen, Inventor, and Scientist
"Contemplating merely the political institutions of the United States, I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government; that is the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible; for this divine book, above all others, favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws, and all those sober and frugal virtues which constitute the soul of republicanism."
Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence
First Founder to call for free, national, public schools
"The Bible is worth all the other books which have ever been printed."
Patrick Henry, Revolutionary Leader & Orator
"O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: 'In God is our trust'
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Francis Scott Key
Final verse of our National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner
"I now made it my earnest prayer that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in His holy protection' that He would incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government, to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another, for their fellow-citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for brethren who have served in the field; and finally that He would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of Mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation."
George Washington, June 14, 1783
Excerpt from "Circular Letter Addressed to the Governors
of all the States on the Disbanding of the Army"
As we embark on the historical summer of election year 2020 drama, may we solemnly remember our heritage and the legacy entrusted to us in this present day. Our Founders, the brave men and women who took God’s Word seriously in their day, left us a model to follow in ours. They sought to establish a land where hearts and minds could know the freedom of worshiping God and living out His call to the glory of God in our nation.
Ours is a messy history. We get distracted with debates in the messy parts, and lose the compass of God’s Word and the original intent of our Founders. But they laid a foundation, tied to God's Word, in their reams of documents, journals, and letters which reveal the American Christian mind to help us return to, when things get tilted out of balance.
May our hearts beat ruby-red with fire to fulfill our generation’s patriotic call at such a time as this—to pray for our nation that we be healed and restored to the liberty of our Constitutional Republic. Within such a nation, God's people can and rise up as the Lord's Church--Ekklesia (legislative governing body)--to fully establish the Kingdom of God in all nations and in all the earth.
Against such, the gates of hell will never prevail!
