2 One Nation Under God Ten things every Christian should know about the founding of America. An excellent summary of our history in 200 pages.
3 One Nation Under God America is the only nation in the world that is founded on a creed. That creed is set forth with dogmatic and even theological lucidity in the Declaration of Independence. G.K.Chesterton
4 1. Christopher Columbus Christopher Columbus was motivated by his Christian faith to sail to the New World.
5 Christopher Columbus Let Christ rejoice on earth, as he rejoices in heaven, when he foresees coming to salvation so many souls of people hitherto lost. Christopher Columbus Journal (1492)
6 2. Mayflower Compact The Pilgrims clearly stated that they came to the New World to glorify God and to advance the Christian faith.
7 Pilgrims Mayflower Pilgrims were blown off course from Virginia. Instead they landed at Cape Cod and eventually settled on the site of Plymouth Colony. Before the disembarked, they drafted the Mayflower Compact.
8 Mayflower Compact
9 Paul Johnson What was remarkable about this particular contract was that it was not between a servant and a master, or a people and a king, but between a group of likeminded individuals and each other, with God as a witness and symbolic co-signatory.
10 3. The Puritan Covenants Massachusetts Bay Colony The Puritans created Bible-based commonwealths in order to practice a representative government that was modeled on their church covenants.
11 Pilgrims and Puritans Pilgrims felt reforming the Church of England was hopeless. They wanted to separate from the church they were called Separatists. Puritans wanted to reform the church and purify it from within they were called Puritans.
12 Puritan Covenants There had been no written Constitution in England. The British common law was a mostly oral tradition. The Puritans determined to anchor their liberties on the written page, a tradition taken from the Bible.
13 Puritan Covenants The Body of Liberties (1641) contained ninetyeight separate protections of individual rights, including: due process of law, equal protection, trial by a jury of peers, and prohibitions against cruel and unusual punishment.
14 4. Haven for Dissidents This nation was founded as a sanctuary for religious dissidents. Roger Williams 1643 Charter for Rhode Island
15 William Penn Main author of founding governmental document called The Concessions. By 1680, The Concessions had 150 signers and provided far-reaching liberties never before seen in Anglo- Saxon law.
16 5. Beginning of Wisdom New England Primer The education of the settlers and founders of America was uniquely Christian and Bible-based.
17 New England Primer In Adam s fall, We sinned all. Heaven to find, The Bible Mind. Christ crucified, For sinners died.
18 Education in the Colonies Passed a law called the Old Deluder Act because it was intended to defeat Satan, the Old Deluder, who had used illiteracy in the Old World to keep people from reading the Word. The main purpose of schools in Puritan New England was to teach children to read the Bible.
19 Harvard College Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17:3). Laws and Statutes (1643)
20 Yale College All scholars shall live religious, godly, and blameless lives according to the rules of God s Word, diligently reading the Holy Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth; and constantly attend upon all the duties of religion, both in public and secret. Regulations at Yale College (1745)
21 6. The Great Awakening A religious revival was the key factor in uniting the separate pre-revolutionary War colonies. Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield
22 The Great Awakening Jonathan Edwards revival began in his church in 1734 like a flash of lightning. George Whitefield made first continental tour of colonies in 1740.
23 Paul Johnson The Great Awakening may have touched as many as three out of four American colonists. He points out that this Great Awakening sounded the death-knell of British colonialism.
24 7. The Black Regiment Many of the clergy in the American colonies, members of the Black Regiment, preached liberty. Since the clergy wore black robes, they were called the Black Regiment.
25 John Adams The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the mind and hearts of the people: and change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations.
26 Patriot Preachers John Adams wrote The Meaning of the American Revolution in He listed those men responsible for the revival of American principles that led to the American Revolution. Two of the men he mentioned were Dr. Mayhew and Dr. Cooper.
27 Patriot Preachers Rev. Jonathan Mayhew, minister of West Church (Boston) Dr. Samuel Cooper, minister of the Brattle Street Church (Boston) Rev. John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg (Woodstock, Virginia)
28 John Peter Muhlenberg Lutheran pastor who served in House of Burgesses. Preached on Eccl. 3 Left church with 300 men from his congregation. Became major general in Continental Army. Elected to Congress with brother Frederick.
29 Patriot Preachers John Adams The Philadelphia ministers thunder and lighten every Sabbath against George III s despotism. Thomas Jefferson pulpit oratory ran like a shock of electricity through the whole colony.
30 8. Christian Patriots Biblical Christianity was the driving force behind the key leaders of the American Revolution.
31 Samuel Adams He had been telling his countrymen for years that America had to take her stand against tyranny. He regarded individual freedom as the law of the Creator and a Christian right documented in the New Testament.
32 Signing of Declaration We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come. Samuel Adams
33 9. Declaration & the Bible Christianity played a significant role in the development of our nation s birth certificate, the Declaration of Independence.
34 Declaration & Constitution The Declaration of Independence is the why of American government. The Constitution is the how of American government.
35 Declaration of Independence laws of nature and nature s God they are endowed by their Creator appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World protection of divine Providence
36 John Locke John Locke explained that the law of nature is God s general revelation He writes on our hearts. He also spoke of the law of God as God s eternal moral law revealed and published in Scripture.
37 George Mason That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights... namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty... and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety. Virginia Declaration of Rights
38 Mecklenberg Declaration Presbyterian Elders of North Carolina drafted resolutions in May When Jefferson corrected his first draft, he erased the original words and inserted those first found in the Mecklenberg Declaration. Must have had the resolutions before him as he was drafting the Declaration.
39 Paul Johnson There is no question that the Declaration of Independence was, to those who signed it, a religious as well as secular act, and that the Revolutionary War had the approbation of divine providence.
40 10. Constitution & the Bible The Biblical understanding of the sinfulness of man was the guiding principle behind the United States Constitution.
41 Source of Political Ideas Constitutional scholars assembled 15,000 writings from the Founding Era. Counted 3154 citations in these writings. The Bible was quoted 34 percent of the time.
42 Source of Political Ideas Writers from this era quoted from the Bible 34 percent of the time. About three-fourths of all references to the Bible came from sermons from that era.
43 Signing of Constitution M.E. Bradford A Worthy Company 50 of the 55 men who signed the Constitution were church members who endorsed the Christian faith.
44 Conclusion Christianity was important in the founding of this country and the framing of its government. If Christianity was so important in the founding of this republic, why do so many think it is irrelevant in the maintenance of this republic?
