Promoting America as a Nation Under God, But Not a National Church as the Church of England

Promoting America as a Nation Under God, But Not a National Church as the Church of England

Introduction:   While, in this day and age, it is difficult to see the United States as a nation under God, it was once commonplace for politicians to consult their Bibles, for children to pray openly in schools, for the Bible to be taught in public schools, and for the court system to reference the Bible for guidance.[1] These times have passed. The 1960s brought rampant change to American society, and years since have struck even heavier blows to our nation’s Christian heritage. Something integral to our nation has been lost, and it must be found again if America is to endure as its founders envisioned. This discourse will primarily focus on the United State’s Christian roots by examining the beliefs and practices of its founding fathers, namely George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, among others. By examining the claims of Thomas Jefferson, in particular, we hope to shed some light on common misconceptions about the meaning of the phrase, “separation of church and state,” and its modern day implications. We will also look at the various ways our nation has fallen from its Christian heritage and how Christians can make a difference. Read More

Pagans on the Wall

Pagans on the Wall

The positions over border security today, and what it should look like, provide a telling example of how much society has changed. Immigration is one of the few powers granted to the federal government. So why isn’t this power being exercised The arguments against a wall (barrier) provide an opportunity to examine the underlying ideas, and why they matter. Read More

How One Senior Living Center Stole Christmas

How One Senior Living Center Stole Christmas

By Sarah Kramer Posted on: | December 18, 2018 You won’t find much Christmas spirit at Providence Place, a senior living center in Washington State. As Christmas approached, the Providence Place building manager informed residents of a new policy. They would no longer be permitted to say Merry Christmas, sing Christmas carols that reference Christ, or display any decorations (including Christmas cards) referencing the Christian religion. One Providence Place resident was even told to remove her mezuzah (a small case holding a parchment inscribed with Bible verses) from her doorframe. Read More

Clergy and the Caravan: The Deeply Flawed

Clergy and the Caravan: The Deeply Flawed

Tabitha Korol I would like to believe that these left-leaning rabbis, ministers, and imams had good intentions, joining together to meet the caravan of migrants and provide them with food, clothing and solace, but their logic is deeply flawed. Whatever their intent, it is unconscionable and immoral for them to presume that they have the authority to offer the United States of America, home to more than 325.7 million American citizens, to any foreign hordes. In breaking the law, they are setting themselves above the law, which is something expressly forbidden in Judaism and Christianity. Read More

Why Do We Celebrate Thanksgiving?

Why Do We Celebrate Thanksgiving?

Stephen McDowell | Providence Foundation For PDF Version: Why We Celebrate Thanksgiving Innumerable blessings have been bestowed upon the United States of America. Concerning these blessings President Lincoln wrote: “No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God.” President Lincoln went on to set apart the last Thursday of November as “a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens.”1 While President Lincoln established America’s official Thanksgiving holiday in 1863, it was the Pilgrims who first celebrated a day of Thanksgiving in this land in 1621 and who set an example that many followed in the succeeding years.2 Read More

Revisionist Thanksgiving

Revisionist Thanksgiving

Stephen McDowell | Providence Foundation One great factor in the secularization and decline of America is the teaching of revisionist history in our schools. As an example of this, a friend recently wrote me that two American Indian history teachers at Minnesota State University told him that Thanksgiving was the celebration of the massacred 600 Pequot Indians in colonial New England. Wanting to learn more of why they thought this, my friend found an article that seemed to detail their beliefs, in which is stated: Ironically, the first official “Day of Thanksgiving” was proclaimed in 1637 by Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop. He did so to celebrate the safe return of English colony men from Mystic, Connecticut. They massacred 600 Pequots that had laid down their weapons and accepted Christianity. They were rewarded with a vicious and cowardly slaughter by their new “brothers in Christ.”[1] Read More
