    Proof That America Was Founded As A Christian Nation

    America was founded on three documents: The Declaration of Independence; The Paris Peace Treaty of 1783, and the Constitution. These documents give conclusive proof that America is a Christian nation. One does not need a law degree or a degree in history to grasp this truth. It is obvious to anyone who does not have an agenda. Let us review the documents and show this proof.

    Declaration of Independence: Click to read

    The body of the Constitution makes no reference to God. The Constitution honors the Christian Sabbath. The President was given 10 days to sign a bill into law. The counting of the 10 days does not include the Sabbath. This is found in Article 1, Section 7, and Clause 2 which in part follows:

    “If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law,”

    The Declaration has many references to God throughout the document. The most famous one is that men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.

    “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”


    The Paris Peace Treaty of 1783: Click to read
    The Paris Peace Treaty was the document which formally ended the Revolution and granted the United States independence from Great Britain. In a real sense, the United States formally became a nation on September 3, 1783.
    When the United States became a nation, it was done in the “name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.” The preamble to this Treat states it is based upon the “Holy and undivided Trinity.” The concept of the holy Trinity is unique to Christianity. This statement means the United States was founded on the Christian faith. The complete Preamble follows:
    “In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity”

    When this concept is applied to the Declaration of Independence, it is clear the reference to “All men are created equal,” was about the holy Trinity. The people of the United States are endowed by their Creator, the holy Trinity, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
    The God of the Bible is whom the United States is based upon. The unalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness come from the Judeo/Christian God and no one else. He is the Rock of our Republic.
    Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Proof That America Was Founded As A Christian Nation | International Cops for Christ

    There you have it . Proof based on Three documents that have references to God in them. On top of that I will add one of my own. A government official swears an oath to God upon being sworn in. Where did all these references to God come from? I think you know the answers.
    Thanks from Tennyson

    Our state and Fed gov print or purchase many religious texts for use in school curriculum, prisons etc.. Does that mean they endorse the content?

    Why didn't they set up a Church of the USA then? I'm sure it would have been a cinch.

    Did you know there is a document that specifically states the opposite of the OP?

    Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary?

    Authored by American diplomat Joel Barlow in 1796, the following treaty was sent to the floor
    of the Senate, June 7, 1797, where it was read aloud in its entirety and unanimously approved.
    John Adams, having seen the treaty, signed it and proudly proclaimed it to the Nation.
    Annals of Congress, 5th Congress

    Article 1. There is a firm and perpetual peace and friendship between the United States of
    America and the Bey and subjects of Tripoli, of Barbary, made by the free consent of both
    parties, and guarantied by the most potent Bey and Regency of Algiers.

    Art. 2. If any goods belonging to any nation with which either of the parties is at war, shall be
    loaded on board of vessels belonging to the other party, they shall pass free, and no attempt shall
    be made to take or detain them.

    Art. 3. If any citizens , subjects, or effects, belonging to either party, shall be found on board a
    prize vessel taken from an enemy by the other party, such citizens or subjects shall be set at
    liberty, and the effects restored to the owners.

    Art. 4. Proper passports are to be given to all vessels of both parties, by which they are to be
    known. And considering the distance between the two countries, eighteen months from the date
    of this treaty, shall be allowed for procuring such passports. During this interval the other papers,
    belonging to such vessels, shall be sufficient for their protection.

    Art. 5. A citizen or subject of either party having bought a prize vessel, condemned by the
    other party, or by any other nation, the certificates of condemnation and bill of sale shall be a
    sufficient passport for such vessel for one year; this being a reasonable time for her to procure a
    proper passport.

    Art. 6. Vessels of either party, putting into the ports of the other, and having need of provisions
    or other supplies, they shall be furnished at the market price. And if any such vessel shall so put
    in, from a disaster at sea, and have occasion to repair, she shall be at liberty to land and
    re-embark her cargo without paying any duties. But in case shall she be compelled to the land her
    cargo.

    Art. 7. Should a vessel of either party be cast on the shore of the other, all proper assistance
    shall be given to her and her people; no pillage shall be allowed; the property shall remain at the
    disposition of the owners; and the crew protected and succored till they can be sent to their
    country.

    Art. 8. If a vessel of either party should be attacked by an enemy, within gun-shot of the forts
    of the other , she shall be defended as much as possible. If she be in port she shall not be seized
    on or attacked, when it is in the power of the other party to protect her. And when she proceeds to
    sea, no enemy shall be allowed to pursue her from the same port, within twenty-four hours after
    her departure.

    Art. 9. The commerce between the United States and Tripoli; the protection to be given to
    merchants, masters of vessels, and seamen; the reciprocal right of the establishing Consuls in
    each country; and the privileges, immunities, and jurisdiction, to be on the same footing with
    those of the most favored nations respectively.

    Art. 10. The money and presents demanded by the Bey of Tripoli, as a full and satisfactory
    consideration on his part, and on the part of his subjects, for this treaty of perpetual peace and
    friendship, are acknowledged to have been received by him previous to his signing the same,
    according to a receipt which is hereto annexed, except such as part as is promised, on the part of
    the United States, to be delivered and paid by them on the arrival of their Consul in Tripoli; of
    which part a note is likewise hereto annexed. And no pretense of any periodical tribute of further
    payments is ever to be made by either party.

    Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on
    the Christian religion;
    as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or
    tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility
    against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious
    opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

    Art. 12. In case of any dispute, arising from a violation of any of the articles of this treaty, no
    appeal shall be made to arms; nor shall war be declared on any pretext whatever. But if the
    Consul, residing at the place where the dispute shall happen, shall not be able to settle the same,
    an amicable referrence shall be made to the mutual friend of the parties, the Dey of Algiers; the
    parties hereby engaging to abide by his decision. And he, by virtue of his signature to this treaty,
    engages for himself and successors to declare the justice of the case, according to the true
    interpretation of the treaty, and to use all the means in his power to enforce the observance of the
    same.

    Signed and sealed at Tripoli of Barbary the 3d day of Junad in the year of the Hegira 1211—
    corresponding with the 4th day of November, 1796, by

    JUSSOF BASHAW MAHOMET, Bey.
    MAMET, Treasurer.
    AMET, Minister of Marine.
    SOLIMAN KAYA.
    GALIL, General of the Troops.
    MAHOMET, Commander of the City.
    AMET, Chamberlain.
    ALLY, Chief of the Divan.
    MAMET, Secretary.

    Signed and sealed at Algiers, the 4th day of Argill, 1211—corresponding with the 3d day of
    January, 1797, by

    HASSAN BASHAW, Dey,

    And by the agent Plenipotentiary of the United States of America,

    JOEL BARLOW.

    This being after the Constitution was ratified.

    In the early part of the 19th century the regency at Tripoli, owing to its piratical practices, was twice involved in war with the United States. In May 1801, the pasha demanded an increase in the tribute ($83,000) which the US government had been paying since 1796 for the protection of their commerce from piracy. The demand was refused, and a naval force was sent from the United States to blockade Tripoli. The First Barbary War dragged on for four years, the Americans in 1803 losing the frigate, Philadelphia, the commander (Captain William Bainbridge) and the whole crew being made prisoners. The most colourful incident in the war was the expedition undertaken by William Eaton with the object of replacing the pasha with an elder brother living in exile, who had promised to accede to all the wishes of the United States. Eaton at the head of a motley crew of 500 US Marines and Muslim Mercenaries marched across the desert from Alexandria. Egypt, and with the aid of American ships, succeeded in capturing Derna. Soon afterwards, on June 3, 1805, peace was concluded. The pasha ended his demands and received $60,000 as ransom for the Philadelphia prisoners.
