America continues to deny God and The Word of God. These haters of God continue to deny the historical fact that America was founded by people who believed in the Living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God who said that in the beginning He created the Heavens and the Earth and later created everything in them and that He did it for his pleasure.
Each colony was founded by a different Christian denomination. Generally, a whole church congregation left their home country and shipped to what is now our America, as a church/unit. Each colony established its church denomination as that colony’s church, and taxed the residents to support it. This practice continued even after the colonies became states.
When the U.S. Constitution was approved the colonies believed in the sovereignty of God Almighty over all. Because of that, most colonies specified, in their approval, that all those appointed or voted to serve in America’s three branches of government be professed Christians who knew God, and God’s Word contained in the Holy Bible, both the Old and the New Testament.
Unfortunately, we now send some people to all three branches of our government who have no idea about God or what His Commandments to Man are. They have twisted God’s Word, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and its subsequent amendments, so that everything goes.
So Yes, history does show that America was founded as a Christian Nation Under God. And Yes, one of the founding fathers was a Deist (one who believes God created Heaven and Earth but then left it entirely up to Man). But Benjamin Franklin’s mistake only shows how smart educated people can be ignorant of God’s Biblical History which clearly shows God had an active hand and is still playing a part in this world.
But the important thing to know is that God will punish and destroy the wicked, most of Mankind, because they rejected His plan of salvation, which He offered, through the blood of Christ. How soon, only God knows!
