Christmas...America...and One Founding Father
I'm thankful for the work of the Wallbuilders organization (wall builders.com). They reconnect us to our faith heritage as citizens of the United States.
For those who don't believe that America has a fundamentally strong foundation in the Christian faith, consider the words of John Quincy Adams in a speech commemorating the 61st anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 1837. What an amazing perspective of the sovereignty of God vis a vis Christmas and the birth of the USA.
John Quincy Adams
6th President of the United States (1825-1829)
"In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity."
