So many of our leaders, celebrities, professors, and news commentators seem to have a deep need to keep reminding us that our America was not founded on Christian principles. Why do they keep harping on this? Why is it so important for them to wipe out Christianity from our lives? Why do they insist on removing all remnants of it from our history books? Folks like Bill Maher have ignorantly yet so confidently barked out his rude and vulgar comments that our founders had no regard for the Bible at all. (I cannot use his exact words because of the vulgarity) Is it as disturbing to you as it is to me that these folks would like our true history to be wiped away? I heard that even some school districts are going to remove American History from their course of study. I wonder why they would want to do that?
Karl Marx, the father of Communism, said: “Take away the heritage of a people, and they are easily persuaded.” In our public schools, our libraries, our universities, our media, our government, our entertainment, our churches, and sadly even in our own conversations this Godly heritage is often bypassed and many times purposely discarded.
Perhaps we homeschoolers can make a difference. Let’s talk about our history…the history of our America every day with our children. Let’s speak about God’s providential history, His miracles, grace and mercy. Even if we are not covering history in a formal way perhaps we can give them historical facts about our heritage each day. Will you join me in this? I’ll try to post something about our Christian Heritage here on a regular basis. Let’s have the conversation around the dinner table and while we are in the car. Let’s keep the conversation going even though many are desperate to erase it from our culture, our minds and our speech. Today I’m going to read and discuss this quote from John Adams our second President. He spoke these words to the Massachusetts Militia in 1798: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
If you have any good quotes or facts that you would like to share please comment and we will all benefit. God Bless you as you disciple and mentor your children.
