Our Forefathers Goal

by Luis

Early immigrants who came to this land were often persecuted in the countries they left. They usually lacked religious freedom.

"Both in Virginia and in New England to the north, the colonists were determined, God-fearing men," wrote historian Paul Johnson. He also wrote, "often in search of a religious toleration denied them at home, who brought their families and were anxious to farm and establish permanent settlements. They put political and religious freedom before riches...Thus took shape the economic dynamo that eventually became the United States - an experiment designed to establish the rule of God on earth...".

What a goal. They planned to establish the rule of God on earth. That means they had the goal of each person keeping the Ten Commandments of God - the basis of all righteous law.

I realize that this is contrary to what many have been taught or currently understand. That's only because we do not know the details of the history of this nations earliest days as well as the beliefs of the earliest settlers. That's how we end up with a man like Barack Obama saying what he says and no one refutes his statements. I can assure that this man is aware of the truth and doesn't like it. After all, why else would he want to "fundamentally change" this nation. In pursuing this change he would have to attack its foundation.

Consider some statements from the Founding Fathers. In his first inaugural address, President George Washington said, "The foundation of our nations policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality." And in his famous farewell address he said, "of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports." Without religion and morality, Washington knew the American experiment was doomed to fail.

John Adams backed him up: "Statesmen may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality ALONE which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand." Religion and morality are firmly rooted in Divine Law. In other words we can not legislate morality without the word of God being acknowledged and respected.

In 1954, Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote, "I believe the entire Bill of Rights came into being because of the knowledge our forefathers had of the Bible and their belief in it."

What political or religious leaders would make such statements as these men did? Even politicians who established our republic were more spiritual than most of our religious leaders today.

The Constitution is the foundation of our Republic. And the Ten Commandments were, in many ways, the foundation of the Constitution. Our forefathers believed that if we didn't keep God's Ten Commandments, our Republic would collapse. Unfortunately we have seen the infiltration of a Liberal mindset and belief system that is transforming the largest segments of our society; our schools, healthcare system, military and court system.

We can't afford to take these words of our founders lightly if we want to see our nation stand. It was much harder for our founding Fathers to spill streams of blood winning our freedom, and to create and establish our constitutional law, than it is for us to just maintain it. So we ought to respect our Founding Fathers above ourselves. But we are now too vain and arrogant to see how profoundly strong they were and how pathetically shallow and weak we are.
