Was the U. S. of A. Built Upon Christian Principles?

Here is a quote from the book THE REBIRTH OF AMERICA:

“In his stirring anthem to the solidity of the Christian faith, George Chapman penned the now- familiar words, ‘How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!” And how appropriate are these words when correlated to America’s glorious heritage.

This nation, without reasonable doubt, was established on the firm foundation of Scripture. Our forefathers, brilliant as they were, openly acknowledged the true genius behind the new system to be the eternal principles of God’s Word. The most fundamental concepts of the republic find their roots in the Bible. From the beginning, the basis for law and government in American society was decidedly biblical. What’s more, the new land was forged through the energy of the Judeo-Christian work ethic.

The United States in her first century of existence knew the stinging reality of conflict. There were wars, assassinations, injustices, catastrophes, and plagues of disease. But the young nation endured, for its moral fabric had been woven with the durable threads of Scriptural truth. Societal ills, like slavery, were ultimately recognized for what they were: violations of God’s standard.

The record of the establishment of America bears the clear stamp of Christian influence. The impact of the Gospel is evident in the leaders chosen, the laws written, and the sweeping changes brought about through the transforming power of Christ in individual lives and corporate experience. America was not formed a nation apart from God, but a nation under God”

The nation that was built on the principles of the Word of God is quickly becoming a nation forsaking the Word of God. When we have Muslims protesting our freedom to remember the birth of Christ in our Schools, and one or more schools have already banned Christmas due to such protest,then we have fallen terribly. May God help us.
