Our Nation Built on a Christian Foundation

Author: Glover Shipp

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

ISBN: 1621890724

Category: Religion

Page: 178

View: 8831

Out of a deep concern for our nation and its drift away from its Christian roots, Glover Shipp presents powerful proofs that it was founded on faith in God. He begins with the earliest colonial document, the Mayflower Charter, and traces the God theme throughout our history. In doing so, he draws on historical documents, monuments, songs, poems, and statements by well-known figures in our society. Unlike some other books of this kind, In God We Trust . . . or Do We? presents inaugural speeches by many of our presidents, private correspondence by leading figures in our nation, the constitutions of our fifty states, Supreme Court decisions that influence church-state relations, and references to God on our national monuments, in our national hymns, and in our poetry. Above all, Shipp points out the inconsistency between interpretations of The Establishment Clause and what really goes on in government. You will find In God We Trust . . . or Do We? a valuable resource for considering and defending the spiritual principles upon which our nation was founded.

Reclaiming the Founding Fathers from America's Right Wing

Author: Michael Austin

Publisher: Prometheus Books

ISBN: 1616146710

Category: Political Science

Page: 253

This book examines dozens of books, articles, speeches, and radio broadcasts by such figures as Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Larry Schweikart, and David Barton to expose the deep historical flaws in their use of America's founding history. In contrast to their misleading method of citing proof texts to serve a narrow agenda, Austin allows the Founding Fathers to speak for themselves, situating all quotations in the proper historical context. What emerges is a true historical picture of men who often disagreed with one another on such crucial issues as federal power, judicial review, and the separation of church and state. As Austin shows, the real legacy of the Founding Fathers to us is a political process: a system of disagreement, debate, and compromise that has kept democracy vibrant in America for more than two hundred years. Austin’s carefully researched and rigorously argued book is essential reading for anyone seeking the accurate historical background to many of the today's hot-button political debates. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Have you ever felt that something is just not as it ought to be in Christianity today? Yet you’re afraid to give voice to the feeling. You wonder, “Would saying so be speaking against God?” Don’t be afraid. In God’s Word, Old Testament and New, whenever things got off the track, God Himself was the first one to say so. That’s the only way God can keep the Church clean: by exposing the problem and then giving the remedy. A great example of this is found in the seven letters to the Asian congregations recorded in Revelation 2 and 3. This book is an exposé of modern Christendom’s getting off the track, a clear description of just what the track is, and how believers can get back on it. It also shows how failing to do so will result in eternal loss. Don’t be afraid to examine your faith. Jesus actually commands us to do so. Embark on the brave Bible adventure of making your calling and election sure. You’ll be glad you did.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

In the world we live in today, many people question what kind of beliefs our Founding Fathers truly held. Were they really Christians? Were they deists? Were they atheists? In this book, N. C. Hovland attempts to take the reader on a journey into history to determine what beliefs Thomas Jefferson held during his lifetime. To do this, Hovland reexamines many of the writings of Jefferson from various stages of his life, including personal letters, journal entries, and some of his more famous writings. Sometimes the only way to determine the truth today is to seek out and study the events of the past.
