Started on Christianity!

Someone mentioned recently on this blog that our founding fathers did everything they could to keep religion out of politics. They were wrong.

Our founding fathers were Christ-loving men. They especially knew how important it was to keep God and His WORD in their hearts. They were men of directing prayer to a Holy and Righteous God in Heaven, asking guidence as they led this country. They were men of war, fighting for the freedom that we have today.

I found these quotes, among MANY others from some of our founding fathers and great leaders, that I wanted to share here today. Mainly because it is so very important to remember how this country was started and that God HAS blessed America because of our humble beginnings in worship of HIM and not ourselves. So if you still haven't voted, remember to vote the BIBLE and God will handle your wallet!

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly
or too often that this great nation was
founded, not by religionists, but by
Christians; not on religions, but on
the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this
very reason peoples of other faiths
have been afforded asylum, prosperity,
and freedom of worship here." -
Henry (original member of the Continental

"It is impossible to rightly govern the world
without God and the Bible."
- President
George Washington

"If there is anything in my thought or style
to commend, the credit is due my parents
for instilling in me an early love of the
Scriptures. If we abide by the principals
taught in the Bible, our country will go on
prospering and to prosper; but if we and
our posterity neglect its instructions and
authority, no man can tell how sudden
a catastrophe may overwhelm us and
bury all our glory in profound obscurity."
- Daniel Webster

"The Bible is the anchor of our liberties."
- President U.S. Grant

"That Book is the rock on which our
Republic rests." -
President Andrew

"So great is my veneration for the Bible
that the earlier my children begin to read
it the more confident will be my hope that
they will prove useful citizens of their
country and respectable members of
society. I have for many years made
it a practice to read through the Bible
once every year."
- President John
Quincy Adams

"America was born a Christian nation.
America was born to exemplify that
devotion to the elements of righteous -
ness, which are derived from the
revelations of Holy Scriptures.
Part of the destiny of Americans
lies in their daily perusal of this
great book of revelations. That
if they would see America free
and pure they will make their
own spirits free and pure by
this baptism of the Holy Spirit."
--President Woodrow Wilson
