America was founded upon spiritual principles or truths, our Founding Fathers divinely inspired by The Holy Bible.
Principle: a basic truth, which applies to both the physical and the spiritual.
Foundation: the basis on which a thing stands, is founded, or is supported.
The “Declaration of Independence” proclaims as a self-evident truth the First Principle. That “all men are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
We were all created in the image of God, as it is written,
“Let us make man in our image; after our likeness.”
The image of God is His Spirit and His word, truth, Jesus personified, through which we obtain life and liberty, as it is written,
“In him was life… the truth shall make you free.”
Spirit and truth, the two-fold power we have all have been endowed with by our Creator, through which we obtain true happiness, should we choose to pursue it. The Founding Fathers formed the government of America, “the land of the free,” after the likeness of God. But to continue to be the land of freedom for the World, the people must be governed by God’s Spirit, and obedient to God’s word, the two divine attributes of the Creator.
Christianity: the religion derived from Jesus Christ. Derived: of, or pertaining to.
The Christian religion was not derived from Jesus Christ. It was derived from the teachings of Paul. Apostle Peter wrote the following about Apostle Paul in his letter to Clement:
“bad instruction, vain boasting, and other such evils have filled the whole house of this world like some enormous smoke preventing those who dwell in it from seeing the Founder aright.”
Peter goes on to say that Paul is the source of these errors, and that his visions deluded him. (Recognitions of Clement 1.15). The following is a quote from one of the seven Founders pertaining to this man-made religion:
“Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man. …Rogueries, absurdities and untruths were perpetrated upon the teachings of Jesus by a large band of dupes and importers led by Paul, the first great corrupter of the teaching of Jesus.” – Thomas Jefferson.
It was most likely this insight that gave rise to Jefferson’s “Wall of Separation between Church and State,” which Jesus spoke to, saying,
“Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.”
The Founders saw the danger in mixing government with religion, symbolized by the iron and clay in the Book of Daniel:
“… they shall not cleave one to another, even as the iron is not mixed with clay” Daniel 2:43
Thomas Paine, considered by some to be a Founding Father, said this:
“All this [Paul’s writing] is nothing better than the jargon of a conjurer who picks up phrases he does not understand to confound the credulous people who come to have their fortune told.”
The Founders were deists: one who believes in the existence of a personal God, but in few or none of the doctrines of the Christian religion.
Christianity was founded upon the conjured, carnal-minded teachings of Paul, not upon the spiritual teachings of Jesus. In destroying the spiritual principles and truths upon which America was founded, Christians are unwittingly giving power to a government that will destroy what America stands for, which is FREEDOM!
