Where the Spirit of the Lord is,
there is liberty (2 Co 3:17).
One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your
mighty acts (Ps. 145:4, NASB).
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as
His own inheritance (Ps 33:12, NKJV).
The Declaration of Independence has many references to God. All
signers of it were Christian in some from. The Constitution (our
governing document) supports it (Mark Levine).
"Separation of church and state" is not in The Constitution. It was
written in a letter from Thomas Jefferson (Jefferson was not a founding
father. He was out of the country when the Constitution was signed).

James Madison: “It is impossible for the man of pious reflection not to perceive in it a finger of that Almighty hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of the revolution.”
Alexander Hamilton: “For my own part, I sincerely esteem it a system, which without the finger of God, never could have been suggested and agreed upon by such a diversity of interest.”
Benjamin Franklin: “All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity.”
Charles Pinckney: “When the great work was done and published, I was struck with amazement. Nothing less than the superintending Hand of Providence, that so miraculously carried us through the war … could have brought it about so complete, upon the whole.”

Thomas Paine: "Thomas Paine on "The Study of God". Delivered in Paris on January 16, 1797, in a [d]iscourse to the Society of Theophilanthropists..."It has been the error of the schools to teach astronomy, and all the other sciences and subjects of natural philosophy, as accomplishments only; whereas they should be taught theologically, or with reference to the Being who is the author of them: for all the principles of science are of Divine origin. Man cannot make, or invent, or contrive principles. He can only discover them; and he ought to look through the discovery to the Author..."

John Jay: "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." John Jay, one of the framers of the Constitution, was appointed by George Washington in 1789 to be the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (and later served two terms as governor of New York). He wrote, in a private letter (1797) to clergyman Jedidiah Morse).
George Washington: “No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the affairs of men, more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency.”
Full Samuel Adams quote: "Is it not high time for the people of this country explicitly to declare, whether they will be freemen or slaves? It is an important question which ought to be decided. It concerns us more than anything in this life. The salvation of our souls is interested in the event. For wherever tyranny is establish’d, immorality of every kind comes in like a torrent. It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot live in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail. The religion and public liberty of a people are intimately connected; their interest are interwoven, they cannot subsist separately; and therefore they rise and fall together. For this reason, it is always observable, that those who are combined to destroy the people’s liberties, practice every art to poison their morals. How greatly then does it concern us, at all events, to put a stop to the progress of tyranny.”

Were the Founders Religious?
"Whether it's the decades-long stint without girlfriends, the endless hours playing Warcraft 17, or just the general lackluster existence of a liberal blogger - lefties in the blog-o-sphere seem to have a general hatred for God. They are on a mission to erase God from the history books, and the revisionist history has even stretched to the Founders who are often described today as atheists and deists. What's the truth? What were the Founders' Views on Faith? [Pt 1] Author of Sacred Fire, Dr. Peter A. Lillback, makes the case...[Glenn Beck Staff Writer 25 May 2010]" The Founders' Views on Faith Pt 1
"Rod Gragg , author of Forged in Faith, has written an amazing book that shows where the Founders were in their faith, and how important the role of faith in God played in the creation of the greatest country in the history of mankind. In a special to the email newsletter, Gragg touches on the faith of the founders, and he also shares this amazing excerpt from his book about the time Congress instituted a 'fasting day' - yes, you read that correctly." [Glenn Beck Staff Writer 26 May 2010] The Founders' Views on Faith Pt. 2
"Bruce Feiler ( America's Prophet, Council of Dads) writes part 3 in our email newsletter series this week on the Founders and their faith. The Founders, despite what liberal bloggers blogging from their mom's basement think, were religious. How much of a role did their faith play in the shaping of America?

Faith of America's Founders
Here are the best quotes about God, country, and the Bible, from
important people who shaped our nation. With so many contemporary
public voices dictating conflicting versions of America’s spiritual
and political foundations, it’s good to be reminded of the words and
actions of some of America's founders.
