19th century letter acknowledges Christian roots of U.S.

Were we or were we not founded based on Christianity? That’s the million dollar question regarding the history of the United States. A letter dated 1854 from the U.S. House Judiciary Committee has revealed that it was accepted fact in the first century of our nation that Christian principles were the base of our Republic.

The letter states “Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle. … In this age, there can be no substitute for Christianity. … That was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.”

If there was any doubt before, I think this pretty much diminishes the arguments we’re seeing in our postmodern era against our Christian principles.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12

One thought on “19th century letter acknowledges Christian roots of U.S.

  1. Isaiah 60: 12 and Jeremiah 27:8 are 2 verses that come to mind regarding those who put God on the back burner of their nation’s priorities. “Any kingdom that will not serve Him will perish…” Praying for America. I love your nation’s rich and great history, and in faith I like to stand on this scripture: “The rule of the wicked will not remain over the godly.” Psalm 125:3 God bless!
