The Real Story on July 4, 2012!

Our Founders

“No one can deny that many of the founding fathers of the United States of America were men of deep religious convictions based in the Bible and their Christian faith in Jesus Christ. Of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, nearly half (24) held seminary or Bible school degrees.” (Source)

If one views the quotes contained at the above source, one quickly realizes that many of our founding fathers were believers in God, the Creator. One begins to realize the foundation of America, despite the fact that some of these men, like Thomas Jefferson, were murky in their conception of who God is. No one can deny that there was belief by the majority of those who signed the Declaration of Independence. We can provide countless sources and quotations from these believers in God. (Source)

As we celebrate the Fourth Of July here in America, we cannot deny our roots. We celebrate the right to religious freedom, and freedom of expression of our religious beliefs, and the freedom of everyone to publicly share his or her thoughts and opinions in this fine nation.  This is what our founders believed in, this is what the Declaration of Independence stands for, this is what we should always stand up for, as Christians.

The Christian Diarist reminds us of the following:

“And while the atheists at Freedom From Religion Foundation want to claim the Declaration of Independence as their own, the inconvenient truth is that not even one of the signers of the nation’s founding document was a “freethinker” or “atheist” or “agnostic” or “skeptic.”

In fact, all 54 signers were men of faith. And nearly half actually were heads of Christian seminaries.”

May God bless and keep each one of you, and may you discover the real history of this fine nation of ours, and do everything you personally can to see that we keep our religious freedom and fulfill the wishes of the founding fathers of our wonderful country.

Happy Fourth of July, 2012!

  1. Thank you for the shout out. And I very much like your blog.

  2. Thank God for the freedom we have to claim this land as a Christian Democracy and the gospel we can share with others proclaiming His Glory.
    I also thank all who served their country defending this freedom so all others have a good place to live.

    Great post Adrienne!

    You and your daughter have a great holiday.

    ♥ Ed

  3. Amen, Ed, Amen! May God bless and keep you and your lovely wife on this fourth of July. I hope you all have a wonderful day. (hugs)

  4. Thanks, JP! I hope you have a lovely fourth of July. God bless you.

  5. I liked your post. Thanks for writing about our Christian heritage.

  6. The image of Jesus in the first pic. Is this painted by a witness or did someone merely make it up?
    The reason I ask is because Jesus seems awfully ‘white’ (European), and I was always under the impression he would have had a more middle-eastern complexion.
    Just asking.

  7. The “looks” of Jesus Christ are really inconsequential; it’s the actions that you should take note of. Whether He’s purple, white, black, brown, yellow, or whatever isn’t the point.

  8. Thanks, MW! God bless you and I hope your fourth of July was wonderful.

  9. Oh, I agree, yet I have never seen an image of him as anything except a white man -usually in a nightshirt and a beard.
    Also, do you not find it odd that there you never see an angel depicted as anything other than white?
    I mean, don’t Chines, Indian and African folk go to heaven as well or is it merely good old whitey that gets the ‘wings’?Don’t you find it a teeny bit odd that there is not a single description of what Jesus looked like.
    I mean, if you went back and saw ‘god’ wouldn’t you write something down, or TELL someone?
    For goodness’ sake you’re a woman, maybe he was hot? You never know, right?
    If you look at the picture he seems a reasonably handsome bloke I suppose?
