Where did you learn history from? A box of cracker jack???Freedom is NOT free.
WE have to BE 'ever' vigilant
LEARN from OUR past ...!!!:)
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34
God Himself placed the American dream into the bosom of our Founding Fathers that is my firm conviction. Our government, rooted in a belief in Almighty God, was formed by brave men who knew it was God Himself Who made man and gave him rights endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, they said. In fact, our Constitution was born in the heat of a revival. They knew that government doesnt give anybody rights; it has no rights to give. God gives the rights. Governments role is to protect those God-given rights.
The only reason our nation is great is because of the blessing of God. God exalted our nation from its beginning.
The Exaltation of a Nation
Righteousness exalts a nation. When people obey the Lord, God is free to bless. Many have forgotten that this nation is great because it was born in the very fires of a revival.
From 1740 to 1770, the flames of revival swept across this land. Jonathan Edwards, George Whitfield, and other great revivalists preached, and God gave America a mighty spiritual awakening. In fact, it was called The Great Awakening. Even secular historians were forced to admit that there was a great awakening.
Out of this awakening people gained character, and out of this character the Constitution came.
The Constitution was written by people who had character, for people who had character. They believed people must have character, for our Founding Fathers did not believe in big government; they believed that individuals must accept personal responsibility.
Character is responsibility assumed. Its just plain hard work. If the people of the United States of America do not have character, the Constitution will not work. Ultimately, our nation will fail without character. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, Jefferson said.
Most of the people who singed were Deists which is to say they thought the universe had a creator but that he does not concern himself with the daily lives of humans and does not directly communicate with humans.
