US History Revised
(Our Judeo-Christian Roots)
It seems to be the mode these days to revise US history to somehow inject the myth that
our roots are entirely secular. If anything should give the lie to this myth it is the most
basic of all US historical documents, our Declaration of Independence. If revisionists
take the time to read through this shining light of our heritage, it will be noted that four
key inferences to God are made: He is Natures God, the Creator, the Supreme Judge of
the World and Divine Providence. A total of fifty-six leaders from all thirteen colonies
signed in agreement including John Hancock, Samuel Adams, John Adams, Benjamin
Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Its always interesting what revisionists do with the
obvious: our Founding Fathers agreed with a document which considers the unalienable
rights of man life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as endowments from God the
Creator. In other words, they agreed that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are
gracious gifts of God Almighty and the basis for their Declaration of Independence. If
these visionary signers were founding a secular nation as revisionists assert they
certainly had a strange way of going about it!
But the revisionists will always find a way to turn things around. What will their fertile
minds do with the last verse of our national anthem written only thirty-eight years after
Oh! Thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand between their loved homes and the wars
desolation! Blest with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land praise the Power
that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must, for our cause is just,
and this be our motto: In God is our trust. And the star-spangled banner forever shall
wave oer a land of the free and the home of the brave!
This is a secular heritage?
What is quite obvious is this: revisionists have a prior agenda. Regardless of recorded
US history, their goal is to totally secularize American public life. They will stop at
nothing even revising recorded history to achieve their ends. If our history tells us
anything, our Founding Fathers knew well from whence came their liberty from God
Himself! Our Declaration of Independence makes that abundantly clear! We need to
follow the example of those who have passed on to us our God-given liberty. We need to
give credit to Whom credit is due!
