One Nation Under God
Just what does it mean to be a Nation Under God. Too often these words have value only in times of national crisis. Although these words were not added to the Pledge of Allegiance until the 1950's, our Founding Fathers would have believed the words "One Nation Under God" are more than just a political slogan.
"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."
"While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian."
"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever;
I believe we have strayed from their vision. That our nation is moving away from God’s point of view when crafting social policies. Many have been trying to lead our Country away from Godly principles and replace them with their own wisdom and knowledge. They have spent years erasing God from public view and from the minds of generations of our children.
