The Origin and Principles of the American Revolution Compared

From the end of the nineteenth century to the opening of the twenty-first century, America’s true Christian heritage has been under attack. Tragically, some Christians have mistakenly joined the effort to attack America’s Christian origin by attacking the spirituality of the Founding Fathers.American Revolution ComparedFor decades, secularists and the irreligious have erroneously insisted that the Founding Fathers were anti-Christian Deists, but nothing can be further from reality. The overwhelming majority of America’s Founding Fathers were orthodox Christians who were members of various denominations. American Revolution ComparedSecularists have attempted to discredit Christian influence in the rise of America by suggesting the Founding Fathers turned to anti-Christian sources when preparing the foundational documents of America. Among the sources alleged to have influenced the formation of America were Enlightenment authors and their writings. But, no place was more thoroughly imbued with the irreligious influences of the Enlightenment than France. While the author of this work, Friedrich Gentz, does not enter into the Christian influence on the rise of America, he does demonstrate the vast differences between the American and French Revolutions. To ensure succeeding generations of Americans understood the differences between the two Revolutions, John Quincy Adams—one of America’s most scholarly presidents and deeply dedicated Christians—translated this work from German into English. Sharing President Adam’s concern, it is once again sent to press with an introduction by Stephen A. Flick. Get your copy today... NOTE: Sold individually.

The Christian Origin of Mother’s Day

Early in the twentieth century, attacks against America’s Christian origin began in earnest. Throughout world history, when one nation conquered another, the history, heroes, and heroines of the conquered nation were quickly removed and replaced with their counterparts from the conquering nation. In this way, the conquered people were compelled to forget their heritage. Christian Origin of Mother's Day Ann Maria Reeves JarvisThe attack upon America's Christian origin has not been mounted by a conquering nation, but largely organized from within by individuals and groups that despise the Christian faith. In the 1920s, W. E. Woodward began an attack upon the moral character of George Washington that continues into the twenty-first century. In fact, the character of America's Founding Fathers has generally been under assault for decades. By attacking the Christian character of the Founding Fathers, secularists and the irreligious hope to undermine any confidence in the Christian faith to exercise a positive influence upon society. Christian Origin of Mother's Day One of the ways secularists and the irreligious further undermine America's Christian origin is by denying Christians their role of influence in important social contributions. By consulting secular sources, one seldom learns of the Christian influence upon important events, observances, and other significant cultural components. This is also very true regarding holidays and other well-known observances. Given the aggressive attempts to deny Christians their rightful place in the annals of American and global history, no one should be surprised at the efforts to confuse and disparage the Christian origin of Mother's Day in America. While this booklet makes no attempt to be exhaustive in its discussion of the origin of Mother's Day, it does provide a thumbnail sketch of the important individuals and events that led to the rise of this important holiday within the United States. Within its pages is the evidence necessary to lay claim to the Christian origin of Mother's Day in America and celebrate America's Christian heritage with deep gratitude.

Eye-Witness to America’s First Struggle for Liberty

Throughout the twentieth century, the true Christian origin of America has been eroded by Darwinists, Marxists, and the irreligious. Mountains of evidence exist that prove America was founded upon the biblical principles of the Christian Faith. And, it was this Christian foundation that quickly fashioned America into a moral, economic, cultural, and military global leader. April 19, 1775First Battles of American RevolutionBut around the world, Darwinism has been the primary cause of human suffering since Darwin's Origin of Species made its appearance in 1859. Co-opting the "teeth and talons" of the Origin of Species, Karl Marx and his disciples have employed Darwin's godless conception of "might is right" in defense of their cosmology. What most have failed to realize is that Marxists completely lose their right of moral voice because they embrace Darwinian "whoever is the strongest" philosophy. For this reason, Marxist Black Lives Matter followers lose their right to say any slave-holder was morally corrupt to own slaves. After all, if a slave-holder has the "might" to hold slaves, then—according to Darwin and Marx—they have the "right"! Because of their Marxist "might is right" philosophy, Black Lives Matter followers endorse slavery!But in fact, America was founded upon the principles of Christianity. President John Adams stated, "The general principles, on which the Fathers achieved Independence, were the only principles in which, that beautiful assembly of young gentlemen could unite, and these principles only could be intended by them in their address, or by me in my answer. And, what were these general principles? I answer, the general principles of Christianity..." (The Adams-Jefferson Letters, 339-340).More specifically, Christian pastors, employing principles of liberty, shaped colonial America's understanding of biblical republican government. A direct result of Bible translation into vernacular languages was the application of biblical principles to all of life, and government was not absolved from this consideration.Contained in this booklet are accounts of America's first battles for freedom—the Battles of Lexington and Concord—and a biblical justification for the Revolution as presented in a sermon by the pastor of Christ Church in Lexington. Rev. Jonas Clarke, witness of the Battle of Lexington, published his accounts of the Battles of Lexington and Concord and provided a sermon justifying the right to resist tyranny. Contained herein is a small portion of America's true Christian heritage… NOTE: Sold at Amazon. Paperback: 57 pages Dimensions: 6 x 0.13 x 9 inches ISBN-13: 979-8501185883

Should Christians Always Submit to the Government?

For more than a century, irreligious forces have assailed America's Christian heritage with defiant resolve. Ironically, their success has been achieved upon the back of an indifferent American church. Many Bible-believing pastors have advanced the myth that America was not founded upon Judaeo-Christianity. Tragically, church leaders have failed to rehearse to their congregations the vital roles the clergy and the church occupied in the birth of the American Republic. But pastors in mid-eighteenth century America believed that what Scripture had to say about government was a matter that was pertinent to public life.In his book Seedtime of the Republic, distinguished Cornell Professor Clinton Rossiter identified six leading voices that were formative in the American move toward independence. They included Thomas Hooker, Roger Williams, John Wise, Richard Bland, Benjamin Franklin, and Jonathan Mayhew. The latter of these six men bequeathed a political legacy to America through his theological and biblical writings. After graduating from Harvard in 1744, Jonathan Mayhew was called to the pastorate of the Old West Congregational Church in Boston, where he wielded considerable influence upon the seminal thought that gave rise to the American Revolution. One of the most influential works that precipitated independence was Mayhew's sermon, Discourse Concerning Unlimited Submission and Non-Resistance to the Higher Powers. In it, Mayhew provided biblical and rational defense for resisting tyrannical government. President John Adams said this sermon was read by "everyone". This influential work has been retitled Should Christians Always Submit to the Government and sent to press with the hope that its timeless principles will once again be seriously considered in light of a rising tide of tyranny which now threatens the American Republic.

A Defense of the Bible as a Schoolbook

Until 1947 and following, the Christian religion exercised considerable influence upon the school children of America. In fact, a thorough study of the history of American education will reveal that from the very beginning of English colonization, Bible reading and prayer was an important part of the classroom. The personal writings and official government proceedings of the colonial era through the middle of the twentieth century clearly indicate that America's Founding Fathers never intended for the Christian faith to be pushed from America's classroom or from the public arena in general. Bible as a Schoolbook Dr. Benjamin RushDr. Benjamin Rush was one of three of the most important Founding Fathers—the other two being George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Dr. Rush was one of the most deeply committed evangelical leaders of the Founders and exercised considerable influence upon American life prior to and following the American Revolution. In his essay, A Defense of the Use of the Bible as a Schoolbook, Dr. Rush addressed his thoughts on this important matter to Rev. Jeremy Belknap, of Boston. To truly understand how important this matter was to one of the most important Founding Fathers, you too will also wish to read Dr. Rush's essay, A Defense of the Use of the Bible as a Schoolbook.Bible as a Schoolbook Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
