6-3-14 Christ and America’s Constitution
America’s Founders were almost totally devout Christians who had us who followed in mind, just as God did. On July 2nd, 1976, George Washington stated, The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. — We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.
Paul informs us in 1 Corinthians 1:1-11, that the lessons of Israel are meant for us who follow in the latter days. Once I understood the sovereignty of Christ over governments and leaders in Psalm 2 and how Christ is the Great Governor and Creator of the Universe in Colossians 1:15-17, I was able to understand and appreciate all the promises of Deuteronomy that the Lord made to nations.
Our founders understood our Constitutional, Republican form of government to be a gift from the Lord. A republic is based on something and ours is based on Christianity. John Adams stated Our Constitution was made only for a righteous and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. After the constitutional convention, someone asked wise old Ben Franklin what kind of government we had and he replied a Republic if you can keep it. George Washington said, “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
If we look before the war for independence from Britain, we find it was the clergy that pushed for independence and taught Americans war was justified. From my Founders Bible article on Birthplace of American Independence we learn of Pastor John Wise’s pamphlet Vindication of the Government of New England Churches printed by the town of Boston before the first congress met: Wise’s ideas included the Laws of nature and of nature’s God, all men are created equal, governments secure rights but don’t provide them, and they derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. This Founders Bible article also notes: It has been well documented that the real inspiration for the American Revolution was the “Black-Robed Regiment,” the colonial clergy who preached fiery Biblical sermons on the just cause of war and why our rights come from God and not from Government.
Americans are rapidly losing freedoms as our constitution is being ignored and in many cases our president ignores congress and judges make laws. Doesn’t reason tell us that if our freedom and God given Constitution resulted from the Christianity of our founders and the Black Robed Regiment that only the practice and involvement of Christianity can now keep it? Doesn’t Jesus Christ, the Great Governor of the Universe need the help of his people? Christ’s only requirement in Deuteronomy, the book of Promises to nations, was that His people follow Him! He promised if they would follow Him, he would do everything for them.
Deuteronomy 7:12-13: “Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the LORD your God will keep with you His covenant and His lovingkindness which He swore to your forefathers. He will love you and bless you —-.
Where is Christ’s Church in this crisis? Unborn millions need His Church to speak out! Our founders were willing to risk everything and even die for us. Church, are you willing to speak out?
