Happy Independence Day!


Thank you God for our country and our freedom! Here are some great quotes from the men who made this day, July 4th, one of true independence and the start of the greatest nation on earth. Notice that these men upheld the true living God, the God of the Bible:

John Adams:
"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."

"The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God."

Thomas Jefferson:
"I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ."

John Hancock:
"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."

Samuel Adams:
"And as it is our duty to extend our wishes to the happiness of the great family of man, I conceive that we cannot better express ourselves than by humbly supplicating the Supreme Ruler of the world that the rod of tyrants may be broken to pieces, and the oppressed made free again; that wars may cease in all the earth, and that the confusions that are and have been among nations may be overruled by promoting and speedily bringing on that holy and happy period when the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ may be everywhere established, and all people everywhere willingly bow to the sceptre of Him who is Prince of Peace."

James Madison:
"Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ."

John Quincy Adams:
"The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made 'bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God' (Isaiah 52:10)."

These are only a FEW of the many, many quotes from those who were a part of the founding of our great nation!  This is the TRUE America - an America that was founded for the purpose of Christianity and freedom in Christ.  In God we trust - One nation under God - God Bless America!

Thank you for posting these quotes of our Founding Fathers! I enjoyed reading and reflecting on them. Praying that our nation will get back to our original and Godly foundation.
