America's Christian Roots: Congress, 1854





 
Congress, 1854

"The great, vital, and conservative element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and the divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ." (25)

Congress, U. S. House Judiciary Committee, 1854

"Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle... In this age, there can be no substitute for Christianity... That was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants." (26)

25. Journal of the House of the Representatives of the United States of America (Washington, DC: Cornelius Wendell, 1855), 34th Cong., 1st Sess., p. 354, January 23, 1856; see also: Lorenzo D. Johnson, Chaplains of the General Government With Objections to their Employment Considered (New York: Sheldon, Blakeman & Co., 1856), p. 35, quoting from the House Journal, Wednesday, January 23, 1856, and B. F. Morris, The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States (Philadelphia: George W. Childs, 1864), p. 328.

26. Reports of Committees of the House of Representatives Made During the First Session of the Thirty-Third Congress (Washington: A. O. P. Nicholson, 1854), pp. 6-9.

An important purpose of this series of blogs is to highlight the strong Christian faith and beliefs of America's Founding Fathers and the Christian influence on the governing of our republic, the United States of America. Part of the purpose is to respond to the testimony of some who proclaim that America was not established as a Christian Nation guided by God and His principles.

However, the main thrust is to bring attention, honor, and glory to our Creator.

Today, God, the Creator of ALL life and His account of Creation in Genesis is often looked upon with complacency instead of ardent passion. Or, every detail is scrutinized by a number of professing Christians. Also, God our Father and the Creator of ALL life, is continuously being mocked and maligned by atheists and other unbelievers who work so hard to cast doubt that God's Word is the authoritative truth including the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In Congress, July 4, 1776
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness
."


These absolute rights came from God. Government can only recognize these rights.

  I look forward to it too Dorothy. I am not real educated on history, but I always thought we came here for religious freedom. That was the purpose for the separation of church and state. We remember what happened when the church wanted to rule the people. Forced conversions, seizing peoples property, along with political favors.

Freedom of religion was never intended as what we have now. Those early founding fathers did not mean or intend what many do now.

Anyhow, I know that you can cover this much better than I would be able to. I am agreeing with your subject. God Bless.
