The Bible declares every nation has a god, but only that nation whose god is the LORD is blessed: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD” (Ps33:12). Therefore, the question is not whether America has a god, but rather, Who is America’s god?!?! History declares the God of America, is the God of the Bible; the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Note, it was not the Koran, nor the Bhagavad Gita, nor Sikhism, nor Buddhism, nor Zoroastrianism, nor Taoism, nor any other religion, or religious book—that influenced America’s laws and culture! On the contrary, it was the Bible…i.e.the Judaeo/Christian ethic, that created America, and influenced its’ people! Therefore, contrary to the Pennsylvania Congress Democrats, and its first-time Muslim, African-American, representative Movita Johnson-Harrel, who led the way in attacking Representative Stephanie Borowicz for being divisive, after she filled the Congress with a Bible filled prayer to open the state legislature two weeks ago....America is in fact, a Christian nation!
This time I want to give you just a small portion of overwhelming evidence proving that America has been, and yet remains a Christian nation. Last time, I left-off with the evidence of President Ronald Reagan’s National proclamation, approved by the Congress, declaring 1983, the year of the Bible! The proclamation declared: “…in recognition of its (Bible) unique contribution in shaping the history and character of this Nation…”!! Let’s move forward!
---On September 10, 1782, the U.S. Congress “approved and recommended to the people the Holy Bible printed by Robert Aitken of Philadelphia. A neat addition to the Holy Scriptures for the use of schools.”
---President John Adams wrote to Thomas Jefferson in 1813, “I have examined all religions, as well as my narrow sphere, my straightened means, and my busy life would allow me; and the result is, that the Bible is the best book in the world. It contains more of my little philosophy than all the libraries I have seen.”
---In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville, the French social philosopher, who travelled America, and wrote his conclusions in ‘Democracy in America’: “Religion in America...must be regarded as the foremost of the political institutions of the country; for if it does not impart a taste for freedom, it facilitates the use of it... This opinion is not peculiar to a class of citizens or a party, but it belongs to the whole nation.” “The sects* that exist in the United States are innumerable. They all differ in respect to the worship which is due to the Creator; but they all agree in respect to the duties which are due from man to man. Each sect* adores the Deity in its own peculiar manner, but all sects* preach the same moral law in the name of God... Moreover, all the sects* of the United States are comprised within the great unity of Christianity, and Christian morality is everywhere the same.” “There is no country in the whole world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence than in America...and nothing better demonstrates how useful it is to man, since the country where it now has the widest sway is both the most enlightened and the freest.”
---Teaching millions of American children (of which I am one!), the McGuffey reader sold over a million copies per year for over 100 years! In 1836, McGuffey declared, "The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our prevalent notions of the character of God, the great moral governor of the universe.”
---In 1852, Robert Winthrop, a descendent of John Winthrop, the first governor of Massachusetts said, “All societies of men must be governed in some way or other. The less they may have of stringent State government, the more they must have of individual self-government. The less they rely on public law or physical force, the more they must rely on private moral restraint. Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the Word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.”
---After exploring thousands of historical documents, the SCOTUS in the 1892 Holy Trinity vs US case, concluded: “No purpose action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or national, because this is a religious people. Our laws and institutions must necessarily be based upon the teachings on the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise. And in the sense, and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour there is a single voice making this affirmation that this is Christian nation. We are founded to legislate, propagate and secure Christianity.”
I repeat---this is the voice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America…after researching thousands of historical documents!
There are literally tens of thousands of documents testifying to the Christianity of America! The liberal myth that the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, Constitution, and the Northwest Ordinance treats all religions the same is just one of the many liberal myths perpetrated on this nation!
Come now, be honest, do you really think--God thinks all religions are the same? If you really don’t know, read Jn14:6; Jn17:3; Acts4:12; Ps71:19; Is44:6,8; Is45:5,6,22!
On the contrary, God has blessed this nation because her people have called on His Great name(Rom10:13;2Chron7:14;2Chron16:9)! In other words, contrary to the Democrats and Muslims of the Pennsylvania Congress, the purpose of prayer in the government halls of America, is so that God might answer our prayer…not to inspire unity!! The Bible declares God answers prayer---only---in the Name of Jesus (Jn16:23-24)!
Therefore, sorry Mr. Robert Spencer, although I love you, and have many or your books on Islam, but ‘non-sectarian prayer’ does not exist! Only the prayers of the righteous avail much(Jms5:16)!! And righteousness is imputed only through faith in Christ(Rom4:5)!!
Thank-you for your bold witness, Ms Stephanie Borowicz!!!
*By sects, Mr de Tocqueville, meant Christian denominations—not other religions, such as Islam, Buddhism, or Hinduism. Remember, his own words, “Moreover, all the sects* of the United States are comprised within the great unity of Christianity.”
