The Christian Of America

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…

America Was Founded Directly on Christian Doctrine
The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.

The Founding Fathers Considered Themselves to be Christians
It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.

George Washington Evangelized Other Peoples With Christianity!
You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are.

George Washington was More Than A Deist
I humbly beseech Thee to be merciful to me in the free pardon of my sins for the sake of Thy dear Son and only Savior Jesus Christ who came to call not the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Thou gavest Thy Son to die for me.
George Washington; from a 24 page authentic handwritten manuscript book dated April 21-23,1752

Thomas Jefferson Personally Claimed More Than Deism
I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others…I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.

Samuel Adams Trusted In Jesus to Forgive His Sins
I rely upon the merits of Jesus Christ for the pardon of all my sins.

Benjamin Franklin Was Pro-Christian
As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and His religion as He left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see.

John Hancock Acknowledged Sin, Confession Forgiveness & Salvation Through Christ
With true contrition of heart we may confess our sins, resolve to forsake them, and implore Divine forgiveness, through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Savior. . .

Patrick Henry Valued Christianity Above All
Being a Christian… is a character which I prize far above all this world has or can boast…The Bible is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed!

James Madison Viewed Anti-Christian Teaching As A Curse
“Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ.”

Benjamin Rush
My only hope of salvation is in the infinite transcendent love of God manifested to the world by the death of His Son upon the Cross, nothing but His blood will wash away my sins, I rely exclusively upon it!

Noah Webster Believed Christendom as the Basis of American Freedoms
The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and His apostles… to it we owe our free constitutions…the source, of all genuine freedom in government & I am persuaded that no civil government can exist and be durable in which the principles of Christianity have not a controlling influence.

Alexander Hamilton
On his deathbed…looking up towards Heaven, he said, “I have a tender reliance on the mercy of the Almighty, through the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
