When the people of America came to the shores of this great land, it was their intention to ensure that all future generations would not have to endure the religious discrimination and the suppression of religious liberty that they were forced to endure in England.

Over the course of 40 years, I have heard just about every excuse for why a person will not receive Jesus as their Savior. In all of the reasons that people give for their unwillingness, they all boil down to one source: A desire to live a certain life that they have chosen, without the interference of religion.
There are many who claim that there is no proof for the existence of God. This is perhaps the most preposterous excuse, considering the massive evidence that is available today to prove that God must exist. In these cases, those who make such assertions, do so from willing ignorance. While asserting that no proof exists for God, under investigation, we find that these persons have not done the necessary work themselves to determine whether or not God actually does exist. In an overwhelming majority, most people who make such claims, use the comments and quotes of other atheists, not their own personal research.
I have not met a single atheists who has taken an academic approach to their atheism by sincerely exploring all the facts which empirically prove that God must exist. The arguments that are frequently given are at best; insufficient, at worst; only taken from the words of other atheists. If you listen to persons who are incorrect in their hypothesis or conclusions, then your hypothesis and conclusions will also be incorrect.

The discussion over whether the United States of America was founded as a Christian Nation, by men who intended that the new government of America would allow the expression of religion in government and schools, is an important subject today. There are many people today who are under the impression that the first amendment, which is referred to as “the establishment” clause of the Constitution, was intended by the framers, as a “wall of separation” between church and state. When we examine the facts of early American history, we find that this was never the intention of this clause. It is only in recent years that the revisionist justices of the Supreme Court have sought to change the original intent of the first amendment.
In this article, the reader will see for themselves, that the intent of the framers of our Constitution was to make certain that the government of the United States, would be prohibited from restricting the free exercise of religion. The establishment clause was not written to keep religion out of government, it was to keep government out of religion. This clause was necessitated by the action of king George of Britain, who sought to make his words, above the words of the Bible. Because he was the king, the people were forced to obey.
The framers of the Constitution wanted to ensure that government never again, infringed on the rights of the people to practice their religion in America. For this reason, they formed a “more perfect union,” that allowed the citizens of America to worship according to the dictates of their conscience, without interference from the newly formed government.
As you read about the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, and the 39 signers of the Constitution, you will be struck by the deeply held belief of these men that the land they were founding should be based upon the Bible and the laws of God.
