The United States Was Founded As A Christian Nation With A “Judeo-Christian Ethic”.
Today, God continues His work in America, but it’s in a nation that has clearly lost its moral compass. Sadly God is being taken out of the United States and our Godly Origin is no longer being taught in American public schools.
Psalm 28: 5 (KJV) Because they Regard Not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
So, The United States is in a downward path that is picking up steam because of continuing to take God out of our country. We Need Leaders That Will Stand Up For Our Godly Origins In America And We Need To Vote For Them.
Psalm 33:12 – Blessed Is The Nation Whose God Is The Lord.
You And I need to tell as many people as possible about the United States Godly History of our “Founding Fathers” and help bring God back into America before it is too late, and something worse happens.
God’s Hand In Shaping America
When studying the founding of the United States, you can’t help but encounter the faith of the nations forefathers. Time and again they recognized God’s hand in the shaping of America. You will find God repeatedly mentioned in their words and documents. And you will find God having an active, vibrant role in the country’s early history.
Godly United States Founding Fathers
The United States Founding Fathers Were Godly Men. It is important to establish what constitutes a “Founding Father” – a person who exerted significant influence in, provided prominent leadership for, or had a substantial impact upon the birth, development, and establishment of America as an independent, self-governing Godly nation.
To be a Founding Father of the United States includes the fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence, as well as the fourteen different Presidents who governed America from 1774 to 1789. Additionally, the handful of significant military leaders who provided leadership for the United States, fought for, and secured our independence must be included.
The Declaration Of Independence July 4, 1776
The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States Of America,When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator (God) with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence (God), we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

President Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865)
Although United States History doesn’t indicate Abe Lincoln belonged to a particular church or denomination, he was a man of uncompromising moral conviction whose deep rooted faith in God, and in the principles of The Bible, made him one of the greatest men who has ever served as President of the United States.
President Abraham Lincoln was a man who overcame life’s greatest hardships through his steadfast Trust In God.
There is written evidence in 1839 that Abraham Lincoln became a Christian in Springfield, Illinois during revival services at the Methodist Episcopal Church.
President Abraham Lincoln Godly Quotes
“I believe I am a humble servant in the Hands Of Our Heavenly Father; I desire that all my works and acts be according to His Will.”
“In regard to this Great Book The Bible, I have but to say it is the Best Gift God has given to man. All the Good Savior gave to the world was communicated thru this Book. But for it, we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare. here and hereafter, are found portrayed in it.”
“I Believe The Will Of God prevails; without Him all human reliance is in vain; without the assistance of that Divine Being I cannot succeed; with that assistance I cannot fail.”
U.S. Supreme Court 1892
In 1892 because of the massive amount of available documentation, the U.S. Supreme Court did not hesitate to declare:
“This is a religious people. This is historically true …. These are not individual sayings, declarations of private persons: they are organic utterances; they speak the voice of the entire people …. These, and many other matters which may be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.”
Commenting on the above Supreme Court statement, David Barton (author of the book “Original Intent: The Courts, The Constitution, and Religion”) said, No other conclusion is possible after an honest examination of American history.
