Remember Our Heritage

“The highest glory of the American Revolution was this:
it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.”

-- President John Quincy Adams

“First, it is their judgment that from Scripture taught them, that those who are chosen to a place in government, must be men truly fearing God, wise and learned in the truths of Christ.”

-- Rev. Johnathan Edwards, 1654

“It is hoped that but few will think the subject of it an improper one to be discoursed in the pulpit, under a notion that this is preaching politics instead of Christ. However, to remove all prejudices of this sort, I beg it may be remembered that ‘all Scripture is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”

Why, then should not those parts of Scripture which relate to civil government be examined and explained from the desk, as well as others?”

-- Rev. Johnathan Mayhew, 1749

“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of infidels or idolaters should be a nation of free-men. It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom.”

-- Patrick Henry


“The church must take right ground in regards to politics …
The time has come for Christians to vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them …

God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for, unless the Church will take right ground. Politics are a part of religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to their country as a part of their duty
to God …

God will bless or curse this nation according to the course Christians take in politics.”

-- Rev. Charles G. Finney
