AMERICA IN ITS ROOTS AND AT ITS BEST IS A NATION BORN IN AND BASED ON CHRISTIAN VALUES
George Washington – 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 to implore His protection and favor.
Wise man in “The Golden Child” – Those magnificent Americans, so much power and so little understanding of what to do with it.
John Adams – The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.
Thomas Jefferson – God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.
Dwight D. Eisenhower – Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first, the most basic expression of Americanism. Thus, the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus with God’s help it will continue to be.
Ronald Reagan – If we ever forget that we are one nation under god, we will be a nation gone under.
Swedenborg writes that America is a nation born in Celestial spiritual light. This is what gave the fore fathers the wisdom to write the courage to write the declaration of independence and the wisdom to write the constitution, both of which are inherently based in Christian and biblical wisdom. Furthermore it is by the providence of God that George Washington won the war and that we created a system of government of democracy and capitalism for these maximize freedom, which is sacred in God’s eyes.
