Build Upon the Rock: John Quincy Adams’ Letters on the Bible and Its Teachings

A President’s lessons on the Bible

In 1809, President James Madison appointed John Quincy Adams as America’s first ambassador to Russia. Leaving his oldest son behind in America, Mr. Adams-sensible of his spiritual obligation to his son-began to write a series of letters to help provide basic guidance to his son concerning his son’s spiritual disciplines, the importance of Bible study, and it basic teachings. His admonition to his son was, “build upon the Rock” of the Lord Jesus Christ. Though written with their oldest son-George-in mind, Mr. Adams fully intended that these nine letters also be kept and collected for the benefit of “brothers and sisters.” Originally published in 1850, the Letters of John Quincy Adams are now once again available in this special presentation edition.

When Congress Asked America to Fast, Pray, and Give Thanks to God: Spiritual Observances by Congress at the Beginning of America's Federal Government

From 1775 to 1784, the Congresses of the United States issued sixteen separate spiritual proclamations, calling Americans to humble themselves, fast, pray, and give thanks to God. Few realize that during the American War of Independence, Congress issued spiritual proclamations to the thirteen states in which they asked citizens to seek the Lord in one of the darkest moments of the nation's history. Having been told for decades that America was birthed by deists, few Americans today can imagine that at one time Congress asked pastors to read their proclamations from their pulpits. In addition, Congress also asked that citizens cease their labor and gather into churches to observe the spiritual proclamations they issued. Citizens who truly wish to know what America's Founding Fathers were like must read the spiritual proclamations of Congress for themselves.
When The United States Capitol Was a Church (Christianity and American Government) (Volume 1)

Contrary to the arguments from the irreligious, America was not founded as a secular nation. Rather, the historical facts demonstrate that from the charters granting immigrants permission to settle in English controlled lands to the first thirteen state constitutions, Christianity was a guiding influence in all of these documents. In addition to a wealth of legal documents demonstrating America's Christian origin and development are the clear historical footprints of the Founding Fathers' mingling of Christian observances with both the state and federal levels of government. It may be demonstrated from the records of the Continental Congress onward that America's Founding Fathers never believed that Christianity should be repressed. In fact, the Continental Congress repeatedly issued proclamations calling for days of fasting and prayer. These proclamations were issued to the states for observance and were observed by General George Washington and the American Revolutionary Army. In addition, the Continental Congress issued thanksgiving proclamations that served as the foundation for the first thanksgiving proclamation under the Constitution. President Washington signed the first thanksgiving proclamation Congress sent to him, and in doing so, began a tradition that was to receive annual observance in the nineteenth century. So deep and strong was the relationship of government to the Christian faith in America that the relationship was recognized in a variety of ways. Few realize that the United States Capitol was used as a church for years before it was used to convene the United States Congress. For nearly three-quarters of a century, the United States Capitol was used for church services. In fact, it became a meeting place for a number of churches in Washington, D. C. While secularists wish to keep this and many other similar historical facts quiet, the sincere Christian will wish to celebrate the spiritual heritage our Founding Fathers have bequeathed to us.
America, this is our Christian heritage!

Christian Heritage Fellowship seeks to speak to several specific areas of need. First, we seek to advocate a biblical worldview as opposed to other world religions or secular humanism. Second, our ministry seeks to recover and advocate the truth concerning America’s Christian heritage and the positive influence of Christianity around the world. Finally, it is our desire to provide this information to believers (and non-believers) that they might be inspired to live lives pleasing to God.
