The Christian Setting of the Declaration of Independence
Posted at Christian Heritage Fellowship:
For nearly a century, America’s Christian origin and the character of her Founding Fathers have been under attack from irreligious and Marxist nemeses. Pointing to half a dozen Founding Fathers (out of nearly 250), America’s Marxist and irreligious adversaries allege prominent Founding Fathers sought to establish a purely irreligious or secular state. But in fact, Congress aggressively sought to ban irreligion (Journals of the Continental Congress, 16:252-253). There is absolutely no evidence to suggest the Founding Fathers attempted to establish the first of America’s organic laws (the Declaration of Independence) upon an irreligious foundation. The evidence against the notion of an irreligious foundation of America is irrefutable.
