Christianity and the Constitution

There’s a book I’d like to recommend:  “Christianity and the Constitution – The Faith of our Founding Fathers,” by John Eidsmoe, 1987, Baker Book House Company, ISBN 0-8010-5231-9.

I’d like to share with you an excerpt from the Dedication:

“This book is dedicated, in the words of the Mayflower Compact of 1620, to “the glorie of God and advancemente ye Christian faith.” That Americans may better understand, in the words of the Declaration of Independence, the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,” which are the only sure foundation for the God-given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; so that with a “firm dependence on the protection of Divine Providence,” we may, in the words of the Preamble to our Constitution, “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

When read in context, it is impossible for any rational human being to deny that the United States of America is a Christian nation, founded solidly on Christian principles.  Even its tricameral structure of government is pattered after the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.  The emphasis of the Constitution was to fully respect the rights of the states and of the people, just as God only knocks at the door – he never barges in.

People like this Brit and Obama himself, along with all others who want to eradicate Christianity from our Christian nation do not understand the basic concept of respect.  Thus, they’re barging in.  Atheists, like Muslims, will not stop until they’ve accomplished their goals, what have nothing to do with respect, but with domination and eradication of all who refuse to buy into their rhetoric.

It was a distinct honor, as well as my pleasure, to serve my country for more than twenty years. I love my country, but sometimes I'm not too happy with its leaders. I'm working to change that, and I could use your help. Please join me! Thanks. : ) - Patriot
