America's Founders Have Spoken: Are We Willing to Listen?

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.” – Patrick Henry, Founding Father
“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” – George Washington, First President
“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity.” – John Adams, Second President
“The highest glory of the American Revolution is this; it connected, in one dissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.” – John Quincy Adams, Sixth President
“I have lived, sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth—that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot call to the ground without His notice, is it probably that an empire can rise without His aid?” – Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father
“I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus.” – Thomas Jefferson, Third President 
A watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest while we are building monuments of renown and bliss here below, we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven.”James Madison, Fourth President and chief architect of the Constitution
Unto Him who is the author and giver of all good, I render sincere and humble thanks for His manifold and unmerited blessings, and especially for our redemption and salvation by His beloved Son”John Jay, First Chief Justice
“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” – John Adams, Second President
