The TRUE Foundation of the United States
Wallbuilders ^ | 7/5/09 | David Barton

Posted on 07/05/2009 6:30:39 AM PDT by spacejunkie01

David Barton is the founder of Wallbuilders. He is a brilliant scholar on the true founding of the United States and how ingrained Christianity was in our founders.

This is the best video I have EVER seen. He is so detailed and yet succinct, on how we were really founded and who's responsible. The level of black participation in our liberty is astounding and yet, you hear none of it. I speculate that the Al Sharpton's/Jesse Jackson's of this country do not want anyone to hear these truths because it could insite pride in the country from our black population.

Show it to your children, family and friends.

The first part is Charles Stanley introducing David and the rest of the show is David Barton. It will truly move you.

You’re a SCAM ARTIST for posting this. You’re pushing the Godless Constitution myth, aren’t you????

Shame on you.

This is absolutely OUTSTANDING! It should be sent to every Christian congregation in America and played in every congregation, prayer service and sunday school.

If the truth about the founding of our country doesn’t see the light of day, those working so hard to bring it down may destroy us.

May God help us.

Thanks. There is no question that the Christian beliefs of the Founders were the the foundations of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution.

I made the following summary of a Wallbuilder's article on the faith statements of some of our founders. In the succint blurb I provide (see link for fuller details) I've tried to state the essential point which the quotes reveal. In many instances I've understated the force of their Christian statement. Any mistakes are my own.

  35. William Paterson (COTUS,SCOTUS, invoked Proverbs 29:2)
  36. Timothy Pickering (COTUS,SecWar,SecState, saved by Christ)
  37. Charles Cotesworth Pinckney (COTUS, praised the true God)
  38. John Randolph of Roanoke (Reconciled to God through Christ)
  39. Benjamin Rush (DOI,COTUS,SurgGen, fervent Christian--Bible in Schools)
  40. Roger Sherman (DOI,COTUS,BOR, Bible knowing/believing Christian)
  41. Richard Stockton (DOI, fear of God is beginning of wisdom)

  51. John WItherspoon (DOI, COTUS, Bible believing Christian)
  52. Oliver Wolcott (DOI, loved by God)

This is just a small sampling of founders and early statesmen and judges. There were 56 signers of the DOI and hundreds involved in the drafting and ratifying of the COTUS, but these are representative according to Wallbuilders. The overwhelming majority are Bible-believing, Christ-professing Christians. A very few are [rational] theists (not deists) who believed in God but questioned the divinity of Christ. There are no atheists among this list. Atheists would not have been allowed to hold public office (see Constitutions of the States of the United States which require belief in God). A religious test (denominational test) was required in some states, but explicitely disallowed at the Federal level to promote accord to achieve the desired aim: a Constitution.
