                                    The United States of America: A Christian Nation ! . ?                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Forward                                                                                                                                                                                                             At the end of the title you will notice an exclamation point, a period and a question mark. The reason for this unique title ending is to bring to the hearer's attention that, even though America began as a Christian nation and continued as such throughout its existence, today it is questionable whether the USA is still Christian and faithful to the true Triune God.

                                                                                  Introduction                                                          Fellow Americans:                                                                                                                      When we look at America today, many do not realize it was founded by Christians and it began as a Christian nation.  You certainly don’t hear this being taught in any of our public schools. Throughout most of its existence our beloved USA has been known as Christian nation, and even today over 76% of Americans claim to be Christians.  Until the mid 1900’s, America has always based its morals and standards on the Christian Holy Bible. Yet when one listens to the media, especially television, when speaking about topics such as “separation of church and state” or “the gay movement and same sex marriage”, one would think that America was and is a secular nation and Christians are trying to impose their morality on the public.  Nothing could be farther from the truth, and the information in this documentary will expose the truth to the Americans and show them that America was founded on biblical principals.  Dr. D. James Kennedy, in his book 10 Truths about America’s Christian Heritage, says this:                                                                                                     “Our nation was founded upon the principles of the [Holy] Bible [of the Christian faith]           and a reliance upon Almighty God.”                                                                            America, until the last forty years or so, has always accepted as true the morals taught in the Bible and made them a part of the law of the land.  But today, in order to satisfy pleasure-seeking Americans, minority groups and people of alien cultures, several groups including the ACLU, and even our own elected government officials, are trying to eradicate from public life the Holy Bible and the truths and morals our LORD and God teaches in it.  The God of the Holy Bible, the only true and living God, has blessed and made America the greatest nation on earth. However, other great nations in the past – Sodom and Gomorrah, Babylonia, the Roman Empire and others - decided to take their own path instead of follow God, and they are gone.  If Americans continue to disobey God and turn away from Him, they too may lose His blessing - and America. 

                                                     America began as a Christian nation                                                                                                                                                                              As we mentioned earlier, America was founded by Christians and began as a Christian nation.  But look at our American school system; they want to get rid of any information that would teach in any way that America has or had anything to do with Christianity and the Holy Bible.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           In our history class in school we learned that, in 1492, Christopher Columbus discovered a new land.  However, they don’t teach Columbus’ real reason for coming to the new land.  In his book America’s God and Country, Wm. J. Federer tells us what Columbus said in his own words about going to the new land:                                                                                                    “It was the Lord who put into my mind  (I could feel His hand upon me) the fact that               it would be possible to sail from here to the Indies.  There is no question that the                     inspiration was from the Holy Spirit … Our Lord Jesus Christ desired to perform a                    very obvious miracle in the voyage to the Indies …”                                                              In the book The Voyages of Christopher Columbus, we learn what Queen Isabella told the pope why Columbus made the trip:                                                                                                              “… she explained that Columbus was attempting “to bear the light of Christ west                    to the heathen undiscovered lands.”                                                                                         Furthermore, when Columbus first discovered an uncharted island, he named the island San Salvador, or “Holy Savior”.  You’ll never hear this in the American school system.                                                                                                                                                                         We have all studied about the Pilgrims, and we even celebrate yet today the holiday they began in the new world offering thanks to God for safeguarding them.   Many think they settled here for only selfish and worldly reasons, but DR. Kennedy tells us the real reason for their coming:                                                                                                                                               Consider the establishment of Jamestown [in 1607], the colonies’ first settlement.                 Upon arriving in the New World, the first thing these pioneers did was to erect a                      cross on the beach and claim the land for Jesus Christ …                                              The First Charter of Virginia stated that the purpose for establishing Jamestown involved the “propagating of [the] Christian religion to such people as yet live in darkness and miserable ignorance of the true knowledge and worship of God.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                  In 1620 the Pilgrims sailed on the Mayflower and came to settle in America, and landed at Plymouth Rock.  On November 11, 1620 the Pilgrims signed the Mayflower Compact in which they disclosed their intent for coming to the new land.  It reads as follows:                              “In the Name of God, Amen … Having undertaken for the glory of God, and                                advancements of the Christian faith … a voyage to plant the first colony …”                   It should be quite clear that the first settlers came to this new land in the name of the Triune God to advance His kingdom and the Christian faith. 

Until the mid 20th Century, America declared itself a Christian Nation

As we study our history, we learn that America began as a Christian nation, and, until the mid-20th century [the 1950’s], continued to declare itself as such.  DR. Kennedy, in his sermon on “Church and State” tells us the purpose of the early settlers:                                              “… the early settlers of this country joined together to form the New England                           Confederation … Its document begins with these words: ‘Whereas we all came into                these parts of America with one and the same end and aim, namely, to advance the               Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ and to enjoy the liberties of the Gospel in the                       purity with peace ...”

In 1776, 150 years after the Pilgrims came, 99.8% of the people in America still professed themselves to be Christian.  In that same year, in the Declaration of Independence, our founding fathers acknowledged God [the only true and living God – the Triune God of Christians]; they acknowledged that He created all things, including man, and all of creation continues to be protected by Him.  In the Declaration of Independence it is stated:                                                                                                                                                               When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to                        dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume           among the powers of earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of                     nature and of nature’s God entitle them

        We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are                 endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are                 life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness …                                                                           Our liberties are not given to us by government or people, but by Almighty God Himself.  The rights government gives can be taken away, but those rights given by God are ours to the end of time; they should be protected at all costs.

Our founding fathers revered and held in high esteem Christianity, God and His Holy Word – the Holy Bible [of the Christians].  In Haley’s Bible Handbook we find the following quotes made by past notable leaders of our country:                                                                                            George Washington: “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the             Bible.”

         Abraham Lincoln: “I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man.  All                 the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book.”

         Andrew Jackson: “That book [the Holy Bible], sir, is the rock on which our republic                  rests.”

         U. S. Grant: “The Bible is the sheet-anchor of our liberties.”

         Patrick Henry: “The Bible is worth all other books which have ever been printed.”

         John Quincy Adams: “So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my                     children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove                      useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society.”

We can see from these quotes that our forefathers and previous presidents did not want to eliminate Christianity and the Bible from government and public life.  DR. Kennedy, in his book, writes:                                                                                                                                                    “Few objective historians would dispute that America’s system of law and liberty is               deeply rooted in the principles of the Bible …”                                                                        He goes on to say regarding the Bible’s role in founding America:                                                          “Political philosophers Donald S. Lutz and Charles Hyneman … After reviewing an                    estimated 15,000 written documents from the period between 1760 and 1805 …                     determined that the Bible was, by far, the most cited source, comprising some 34                   percent of all quotations.  In fact, the Bible was cited four times as often as the                        next most commonly referenced source.”                                                                           And our “modern day educators” try to tell us that the Bible had nothing to do with the forming of our country. 

Time Magazine, on Feb. 14, 1954 at an interview entitled “Breakfast at Washington”, printed this statement made by one of our highest judicial officers, Chief Justice Earl Warren:                                                                                                                                                              “I believe no one can read the history of our country … without realizing the Good                   Book and the spirit of the Savior have from the beginning been our guiding geniuses              … I believe the entire Bill of Rights came into being because of the knowledge our                 forefathers had of the Bible and their belief in it.”

And for even more proof of the Bible’s contribution to America, after studying for ten years every document that pertained Christianity and America, the Supreme Court of the United States of America concluded in the “Trinity Decision of 1892” and unanimously made this decision,                                                                                                                                                            “We are a Christian people, and the morality of the country is deeply engrafted upon                Christianity.”                                                                                                                               And again in 1931 [U. S. v. McIntosh] the High Court stated,                                                                    “We are a Christian people, according to one another the equal right of religious                      freedom and acknowledge with reverence the duty of obedience to the will of God.”

We can certainly conclude that our founding fathers did not want Christianity, God and the Bible removed from government and public life.  And yet the ACLU and other anti-Christian agencies, pretending to protect the public’s rights, want to destroy our American biblical heritage.  If an American wants to practice some pagan or ungodly religion other than Christianity, he has the right [at least at this time] to do so.  But let him do so in such a way that it does not affect the American government or destroy our Christian heritage.  We who know the truth must do all we can to protect our Christian heritage or lose it; and if we lose it, we will also lose our God-given liberties.

Today, majority of Americans claim to be Christian yet morality is declining

As we look into our American History, we realize our close ties with Christianity and Christian morals.  Today, over 76% of Americans claim to be Christians, and yet we see a great divergence between the morals of today and the godly morals of our forefathers.  We see alien immigrants flocking to USA and trying to force on Americans equality for their cultures while, at the same time, destroying America’s Christian culture.  We see ungodly abuses happening today that, until fifty years ago, were considered horrid, detestable and totally unacceptable.  We need to ask ourselves, “What’s happening?”  Until a few decades ago, America has enjoyed great wealth, governmental and economic systems unequaled in history and today, freedom of religion and many other blessings including a peaceful existence only slightly touched by warring.  But this is changing.

We need to ask ourselves what was it that made America the greatest nation on earth and kept it as such throughout most of its history.  As we have surmised from our look into our past history, our forefathers were for the most part Bible believing Christians.  They believed that the Holy Bible of Christians was God’s inerrant Word and message to all people, and that disobeying God’s commands was sinful and unacceptable.

But consider the status of our beloved America today and the ungodly acts that are considered acceptable.  The morality of our country is deteriorating to that of Sodom and Gomorrah, and maybe even worse: 40 million babies have been killed by abortion; premarital and adulterous sex is out of control and considered acceptable; homosexuals are not only considered normal, but also given special protection, and even want to get married; pornography in all forms from pictures and magazines to XXX-rated movies fills the minds of Americans with all manner of perverted and ungodly thoughts and desires; women no longer want to be wives and mothers, but crave to usurp man’s authority and rule all things; alien immigrants, whether legally here or not, are demanding equality for their cultures – at the same time destroying our American culture; and most disturbing, Americans are allowing false religions and false gods to replace Christianity and the only true living God, the Triune God.  And this is not all – the list continues.   Why is this happening? What has changed in the last fifty years?

Remember that when our country began, over 99% of the people professed themselves to be Christians, and we see the high esteem our forefathers had for God and the Holy Bible. 

Today 76% of Americans still claim to be Christians, but apparently they are so weak as Christians and/or know so little about the Bible that they are easily led to false religions and false thoughts and false morals.  In our schools today, which are train our children to be tomorrow’s leaders and tomorrow’s America, the false theory of evolution is the only information allowed to be taught to our children regarding the beginnings of earth and man.  The true biblical account of creation, which we learn from the Christian Holy Bible, is forbidden to be taught!  Even our American Christian churches are so liberal and weak in knowledge and conviction that they don’t make it clear to Christians that one cannot believe both creationism and the theory of evolution, and that the theory of evolution is completely false, ungodly and unbiblical.  Furthermore our own government through judicial tyranny is forcing on Americans an unconstitutional and unbiblical meaning of “separation of church and state”.  And look at the results: Christian prayer in public schools is forbidden and the Nativity and other Christian symbols are forbidden to be placed on public and government property.  In several elections, over 70% of all Americans voted to have biblical creationism taught in our public schools, even allowing the theory of evolution to continue to be taught, but the American courts overturned the decision, determined it to be unconstitutional and forbade creationism to be taught.  In some American states the majority of people voted against “same-sex marriage” among homosexuals, and again the American courts overturned their decision as unconstitutional and forced the American public by law to allow this ungodly, perverted and hideous lifestyle. This most certainly would not have happened in the early years of our forefathers; they were godly men who believed God and the Bible!

                                Alien cultures and religions are destroying Christian America.


Those Americans who claim to be Christians need to search their minds and souls and ask themselves if they truly believe God and the Holy Bible of Christians.  Unfortunately many Americans know so little about the Bible that they believe that the god of the Muslims, the god of the modern day Jews who practice Judaism and the god of the Jehovah Witness and Mormons are the same as the true Triune God of the Christians.  This thought is totally false.  God tells us in the Bible [i.e., the Christian Bible, which is the only true Holy Book from the only true and living God – the Triune God] that there is only one God, and He is Triune - three Persons in one Divine Essence. 

There are many religions in the world, which are now infiltrating America, and each religion has its sacred book(s).  But most are nothing more than “man-created” “do good” books that basically teach the reader that he must use his own strength and prowess to work his way to an afterlife.  Only the Christian Bible claims God [the Triune God] as its Author. Only the Christian Bible tells us that man cannot work his way to the afterlife, but that God has sent a Savior [Jesus Christ, His only-begotten Son] Who fulfilled all God’s requirements, died on the cross for the sins of all people, and rose to life three days later, opening heaven [the afterlife with God for eternity] which He gives as a free gift to all those who trust and believe in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.  God, in this most holy of all books, tells the world that this Bible IS His Holy Word, and its all true from cover to cover.  Do you believe it to be without error and all true? Unfortunately many think that the Bible only contains God’s word along with myths and antiquated ideas, or that it contains errors because of the many rewrites or translations, or that verses can be interpreted differently by various people according to their beliefs.  But God tells in the Book of Timothy (II Tim 3:16),                                                                                                                     “All Scripture is given by the inspiration of God.”                                                                     And God speaking through Saint John assures us (John 17:17),                                                          “ Thy [His] Word is truth.”                                                                                                             The Bible is all true, from cover to cover, and we can trust everything it says and promises.

In the Bible God tells us there is only one God                                                                                          Deut 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.”                                                      1Cor 8:4 “… there is no God but one.”                                                                                         Then in the New Testament He clearly shows that He is Triune – three Persons in one essence:                                                                                                                                                          Matt 28:19 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the                   Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit …”                                                 Notice He said in the NAME [singular], not names, of the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.  There are three Persons, yet one God.  We may not understand how this can be, but we believe it because God shows us in the Bible it is true.  And about Jesus Christ, His only-begotten Son, God says this:                                                                                John 3:36 “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son            will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him."                                                                    All Americans, especially Christians, need to know that only those who believe in the Son Jesus Christ [ i.e. believe that He is God’s only-begotten Son; that He is the Second Person of the Holy Trinity; that He is God Jehovah] will be welcomed to spend eternity in heaven with God.  Unfortunately all other religions including Muslims, Jews who practice Judaism, Mormons and Jehovah Witness reject Jesus as God, as Savior of the world.  Therefore they do not believe in the true God [the Triune God] but an idol, and have a totally ungodly and anti-Christian theology that is leading them to the fires of hell.  Our job on earth is to bring the message of Jesus Christ to them so they may be converted.  And yet Americans say nothing and are allowing these alien religions and cultures to inject their poison and false teachings into our American Christian culture.  For example, these cultures want Americans to accept the Islam holiday of Ramadan [celebration of Muhammad’s journey to Mecca] and the Jewish holiday of Hanukah [celebration of Maccabean victory] as equal to and along side of the Christian holidays of Christmas [celebration of the birth of God’s Son on earth] and Easter [the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior].  Why would any Bible-believing Christian allow these alien holidays to be considered equal with Christmas and Easter?  Why would true Christians want to celebrate them at all?

If Americans want to preserve for their children the America our forefathers founded, they need to look very seriously at these alien cultures and religions as enemies who will eventually destroy our beloved country.  DR. Robert Reymond in the book Answering Islam gives Americans this warning,                                                                                                                     “… make no mistake about it: Islam is a sworn enemy of the Christian faith and wants           to see it finally and fully eradicated, by force, if necessary, from the Earth.”                      And talk about insanity - Americans are allowing a man to run for president of the USA who was a Muslim, and his family still is!

 If people from other countries want to come to America and become Americans, then they should apply with our government as required and wait to be accepted.  Once they are allowed to immigrate here, they should learn the American language and the American Christian way of life. If they don’t want to do so, let them go somewhere else.

                    America needs to repent or risk losing God’s blessing and providence.


Americans, up to now, have enjoyed many freedoms: freedom of religion; freedom of speech; freedom to live life as they pleased as long as they stayed within the limits permitted by the Bible.  Unfortunately Americans, especially Christians, are losing many freedoms, and if they do not wake up and do something, may lose their Christian heritage and even America, as we have known it.  What can we do?  God tells us in the Bible the measures we must take to restore our country to the conditions and morals of our forefathers:                                                                                                                                                     (2 Chron 7:14) “if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and            pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven             and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

We must realize and admit to ourselves and to the world that God Jehovah is the Triune God, the only true and living God, and that the Christian Holy Bible is the one and only true Holy Bible and God’s message and command to all mankind.  Those who refuse to admit this are either very weak Christians who need to restudy the Bible or not Christian at all.  Furthermore God, speaking through St. Peter, tells us the action we must take when the government allows us or orders us to do something which is contrary to the commands of the Bible:                                                                                                                                                          Acts 5:29 “We must obey God rather than men!”                                                                     For example, the government today tells us abortion is legal, but the Bible makes it clear that taking innocent life is murder, and no one is more innocent than a baby in the womb who has not been perverted by the ways of the world.  The American courts are ruling that homosexual marriages are not only acceptable, but also just as valid as normal, godly man-woman marriages.  However, God instituted marriage on this earth as the union between one man and one woman until they are parted by death; no other union is godly or acceptable.  In these examples, the government says yes, but God says no!  If America is a Christian nation, we will abolish and prohibit abortion and same-sex marriage, as well as all the other ungodly, anti-Christian and inhumane atrocities happening today.

Americans may have different national origins, but there are really only two types people – Christians, those who believe Jesus Christ is God Jehovah and Lord and Savior of all mankind, and the rest, the ungodly who allow themselves to be led by the devil and think the world is here only to please and pleasure them.  God created this world for His people, and His people were placed on earth to do His wishes.  God tells Christians in the Bible                (Matt 5:13-14) “You are salt of the earth … you are the light of the world …”.                      Christians are led by the Holy Spirit to do God’s will and to do those actions that are right and moral according to God’s wishes.  The more a Christian studies the Bible, the stronger his faith will be and the more he will want to do the godly thing. 

Salt was, and still is today, used as a preservative to keep meats and various foods from spoiling.  God calls Christians the salt of the earth.  Christians, those who trust Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, have in fact proved to be, more than anyone else, the preservative of decency and morality in the world.  Regretfully Christians, in times past as well as today, had and may still have beliefs that are contrary to the Bible, and these erroneous beliefs need to be studied and corrected.  Thankfully in America many of these incorrect beliefs were corrected.  For example, the status of women and black slavery has been brought in line with the Bible.  Unfortunately godly love has been turned into worldly permissiveness and personal greed.  Women have relinquished their god-given status as “man’s helpmeet” and today have become man’s competitor, with many desiring to become man’s superior.  Many black Americans are abusing their liberty; instead of using their freedom to earn their worldly needs, they demand various rights and positions, deeming “the world” owes them.  Even more alarming is the direction our public schools are taking by disregarding God and the Bible and turning to Humanism which is a false secular religion that teaches that there is no god.  If one removes God out of life, then the result is that “man is the measure of all things” and man decides right and wrong.

And look at what modern “educators” have done to American schools.  Today our public school system, in its perverted wisdom, is “dumbing down” America; instead of helping students become smarter, they implemented the “no child left behind” policy in which they downgraded the required educational standards so poorly educated students could pass.  And look at the results.  America is rated 29th in educational ability when compared with other countries.  Japan, China, and India were rated much higher.  This must change if we want to be leaders in the global market. 

But even though Christians are susceptible to error as others, consider the great things Christianity has done for society regarding child labor, education in America, science, and numerous other issues.  Just look at the other countries of the world that are not Christian, and you will see tyranny, injustice, strife and hunger.  Eliminate Christianity and America will fall into the same vices. 

Christians need to be salt, the preservative of America’s morals, but they also need to be the light of the world.  Without God and His Word the Bible, all we have is man and his selfish, pleasure-seeking ideas for our country, and we already have a taste of that as our government and our courts force ungodly conditions on us such as legal abortions, same-sex marriage, elimination of Christianity from government and schools and such atrocities.  Those who are not Christian do not know God and His ways; if Christians do not light the way for the world, who will?   Whether people want to believe it or not, the truth is there is a God and He controls all things, including who will rule and which nations will continue to exist.  Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because of its immorality.  Babylon, the Roman Empire, and other great nations no longer exist.  If America, which began as a Christian nation, doesn’t return to God and amend its immoral and evil ways, it will also be just another nonexistent nation in history.

                                                  What can we do?

First we must bow down to God and turn to the His Bible for the answers to all situations, especially morality and justice.  It bears repeating the promise God made in the Bible:                   (2 Chron 7:14) “if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and             pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven             and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”                                                                We can still save our country if we will just listen and bow down to Him Who made and preserves all things.

 Secondly we must vote into government and high offices and courts godly men who will promote Christian ideals and morals.  We need to eliminate all types of abortion.  We need to stop same-sex marriage legislation and label homosexuality as God does – an unacceptable lifestyle.  We need to tell our government officials to look to George Washington and the other forefathers regarding the true relationship between church and state; the state should govern using the Triune God and His Holy Bible as their guide.  We need to encourage the American women to assume their godly position as man’s “helpmeet” to do God’s will and to concentrate on being godly wives and mothers so that both husbands and wives can be a “light” to their children.  America needs to heed God’s command regarding sexual immorality, and stop all the adultery, fornication, and homosexuality, as well as make all pornography illegal.  In order to try to bring America’s morals back in line with God and the Bible, a group of American Christian citizens is attempting to start a new political party named the “Christian Party.”  We invite you to take a look at this party’s ideology and platform on the worldwide web.  Go to and click on the purple CROSS-to enter the Christian Party site.  Let’s try to elect real, bible-believing Christians into political offices that will do God’s will, and not man’s.

Thirdly we must study the Bible so we can be a light to others.  There is no other way for the ungodly unchristian America to know God and His ways except through us Christians.  The only way to change the government is to change the people, and the only way to change the people is to bring God’s Word and His Gospel to them.

Finally we must pray that God give each of us the power and strength to do all the above and that He will help us be the salt that will preserve America. 

In closing, Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, must be our only Lord – not government and not society – and His ways must be our only guide to living.
