Was America Founded to be Secular?

I applaud PragerU for articulating the truth of America’s history. The men quoted here weren’t all necessarily Christians but they knew how important religion and particularly Judeo-Christian beliefs were to the establishment and continued welfare of the nation. Their words are as true today as they were when they spoke them over two hundred years ago.

      Thank you for the reblog, Pastor Barsan. There is no question that the Bible had a huge impact on those who founded this nation. Anyone who says differently is changing history. May God continue to bless your ministry my friend.

    Chris, just now I watched this short video. It was excellent. Thank you! Lord bless you!
    Both we and Norway have lost our moorings.

      You’re welcome, Maria. Thank you for your kind words and may the Lord bless you as well!
      Prager U. is not a Christian “thing” but it interesting how many videos speak well of Judeo-Christian ethics. In fact, about 20 of the videos have been censored by Youtube because they are considered too questionable. Most of those who speak on these videos are well educated in some facet of life and would be considered “conservative.” It is a sad fact that many “Christian” preachers can’t articulate morality as well as many of the Prager U. videos. We have, indeed, lost our moorings.

      Here are the videos that have been blocked thus far:

        Thanks, Chris! And thank you for additional important information! Today I read a newspaper article – New Boston Globe, I think – that reported on the push to remove the reference to Puritans in Harvard’s anthem. Got the link from a Facebook group devoted to the Puritans.

        • Chris says:

          You’re welcome, Maria! Wow. Some just want to hide any reference to anything Christian from everything. It is scary to see the lack of understanding in much of the younger generations. The continual attempt to remove historical evidence of a once great spiritual nation is sickening. I don’t think the U.S. Constitution could be a product of our times. The percentage of Americans who have lost respect for the Word of God is now too high for anything as wise as the Constitution. It appears to be a target as well as the Bible.
          Isn’t it great that in spite of all of the bad news we see every day, our God remains the same as always, merciful and mighty? We are blessed!
