“No country upon Earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings…Much to be regretted indeed would it be, were to neglect the means and depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to, so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass. The Great Governor of the Universe has led us too long and too far…to forsake us in the midst of it…We may now and then, get bewildered; but I hope and trust that there is good sense and virtue enough left to recover the right path.”


Commander-in-Chief in the Revolutionary War, President of the Continental Congress, first President of the United States of America, known as “The Father of His country,” eulogized by Henry Lee as, “First in War, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countryman.”

The bulk of the Founding Fathers were Christians and Deists with a couple of Atheists. Deism is as far from Atheism as it is from Christianity.

I am currently reading "The Real George Washington". I thought I was amazed at the life of George Washington before reading this book.

How did so many great, God fearing, self sacrificing, brilliant men come together at the same time and point in history?

shoprat: What cannot be denied (except by those who are deliberately ignorant) is that almost all of our founders were committed to the Judeo/Christian ethic in government.

ablur: Only by the guidance of God.

"good sense and virtue" Poor George would be rolling in his grave today :-(

ablur; I've always thought America is one of God's miracles..just too many things occurred to not believe that, I think.

I guess it's one of the reasons our country's going downhill SO FAST; we're turning our backs to him every chance we get. It sure was humming along when good people were living by their faith, had some conscience they developed from weekly church attendance, etc etc... God help us all...
keep praying!
