The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It                 96
faith of the founding fathers of the United States and the U.S. was expected to remain a Christian
nation. Morris writes:
An early House Judiciary Committee affirmed the Founders' lack of
pluralistic intent when it declared: “Christianity…was the religion of the founders
of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.”
George Washington in his farewell address also recognized that America was a nation of
one religion (Christianity) except for “slight shades of difference.” He wrote: “… With slight
shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles….”
In 1799 Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase not only recognized America as a Christian
nation, he also recognized that Christianity was the established religion. He stated:
By our form of Government, the Christian religion is the established
religion; and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed on the same
equal footing, and are equally entitled to protection in their religious liberty.
(Justice Samuel Chase, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Runkel v. Winsmiller, 1799.
In 1892 another Supreme Court Justice, Justice David Josiah Brewer, affirmed that
America is a Christian nation and that our laws are based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. Justice
Brewer wrote the following for the court:
Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody
the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be
otherwise, and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions
are emphatically Christian. (Justice David Josiah Brewer, United States Supreme
Court, Feb. 29, 1892, Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States.)
In 1854 the U.S. Judiciary Committee acknowledged that our very government was held
together by “the divine truths of Jesus Christ.” The committee specifically stated: “The great,
vital, and conservative element in our system (the thing that holds our system together) is the
belief of our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
America Has Abandoned God
Today our nation doesn’t believe in God’s law anymore. Although 85% of Americans
identify themselves as Christians, only 15% believe in moral absolutes. The figure is higher for
those who identify themselves as born again Christians, but of that group only 32% believe in
moral absolutes.
When asked if they believed in all 10 of the Ten Commandments only 13% of
Americans said yes. When given the opportunity to throw out the Commandments they didn’t
like, incredibly, only 40% of Americans believed in 5 of the Ten Commandments.
This means
that the vast majority of Christians in the United States do not believe in the Ten Commandments
