AMERICA ONE NATION UNDER GOD

I. America is a nation that has always placed faith and trust in God

  • Our founding document says so
    • Declaration of Independence refers to God 5X
      • God as Judge

“We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions

      • God as Creator

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

      • God as Lawgiver

assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them

      • God as Guide

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

  • Our national anthem says we are “One Nation Under God”

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

  • Our national motto says we are “One Nation Under God”

“In God we Trust”

In God We Trust, our national motto, is inscribed in letters of gold behind the Speaker’s rostrum in the House Chamber. Both houses of Congress reaffirmed our national motto in 2011.

  • Our currency says we are “One Nation Under God”

“In God we Trust”

  • The Capitol Building says we are “One Nation Under God”:

The Prayer Room contains an open Bible sitting on an altar in front of a stained window showing Washington in earnest prayer. Behind him is etched the first verse of Psalm 16, “Preserve me, O God, for in Thee do I put my trust.”

  • The Washington Monument says so:

Engraved on a block inside the monument “In God we Trust”

  • The Lincoln Memorial says it:

that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom —“

Library of Congress In the Main Reading Room are statues and quotes representing fields of knowledge. Moses and Paul represent Religion, with the inscription, “What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God.” Science is represented by, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handywork.” History: “One God, one law, one element, and one far-off divine event, to which the whole creation moves.”

President Andrew Jackson, “The Bible is the rock upon which our republic rests.”

Each day the Supreme Court is in session, a crier ends his call announcing the formal opening by declaring,

“God save the United States and the Honorable Court.”

Inscribed on Jefferson Memorial:

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

U.S. House of Representatives in 1854:            

“The great vital element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

 

II. America is a nation in a contract with God

  • King James I signed the Virginia Charter which said in its second provision their purpose was:

propagating of Christian Religion to such People, as yet live in Darkness and miserable Ignorance of the true Knowledge and Worship of God

  •  Chaplain Robert Hunt placed a cross in the sands of Cape Henry and dedicated this land to the service and will of God
  •  The Puritans signed the first government document called the Mayflower Compact, putting the new land under God’s dominion.

In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, defender of the Faith, etc. Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620.[

III. America is a nation that is breaking that contract with God

  • In the Democratic national convention, half the delegated booed the mention of the name of “God” and “Jerusalem” in their platform.
  • Our president announced that “America is not a Christian nation.”
  • Our president disdains the law of the land Defense of Marriage Act, has openly desecrated holy matrimony.
  • Our courts uphold the killing of the unborn in a mother’s womb. 56 million since 1973.
  • Islamists by the thousands hold a religious meeting in front of the White House and bow before Allah.
