History shows that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams and many others of our founding fathers established America as a Christian nation. Here are some of the recorded references of what they really said:

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever”. – Thomas Jefferson, 1781

“Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only Law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited…What a paradise would this region be!” – John Adams, 1756

“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” – Chief Justice John Jay, October 12, 1816

With all this, President John Adams stated, “The Bible is the best book in the world,” and President Thomas Jefferson stated, “The Bible is the source of Liberty”

As President Eisenhower and later President Ford stated, “Without God there can be no American form of government nor an American way of life. Recognition of a Supreme Being is the first impression of Americanism. Thus the founding fathers saw it, and thus with God’s help, it will continue to be.”

The historical record is clear. America is a Christian nation. As President Ronald Reagan once said, “If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
