July 4th – Remember

4 Jul

“The Scripture states, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD: and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.” The bible asks, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3).

There is no doubt this is, indeed, a nation built upon the foundation of God–that the Lord was the God of this nation; that it was founded upon the principles of God’s Word, upon the teachings of Christianity, and for the advancement of the Kingdom of Christ. All of that has been under enormous attack for the last few decades. In fact, so effective has been that attack that the historical revisionists have all but removed every vestige of our Christian heritage from our schools’ textbooks. Even the very monuments in the nation’s capital that point to the Christian origins of this country are being changed or removed.

My subject: “America: A Christian Nation.” That is a concept that has been so systematically blotted from the collective memory of this country as to sound in the ears of most people in America to be an alien philosophy, an intrusion of religion into the tranquility of a secular nation.

All nations that have ever existed have been founded upon either some theistic or anti-theistic principle, whether we think of the Hinduism of India, the Confucianism of China, the Mohammedanism of Saudi Arabia, or the atheism of the former Soviet Union. If we know our history, we know that America was a nation founded upon Christ and His Word. Those foundations, indeed, are crumbling in our time.

There are those in our country today who are busily tearing apart that foundation, who would gnash their teeth at the idea that this is a Christian nation. They will not be satisfied until they have removed every vestige of our Christian heritage from not only the minds of the people, but also from the monuments of this country. “

D. James Kennedy from ‘The Book that Made America’
