America is a Christian Nation


America is a Christian Nation

When President Obama said we are not a Christian Nation, evidently he doesn't understand the founding of our Country, or is it just wishful thinking?

The Muslim calendar is not dated from the birth of Christ, but from the year in which Muhammad emigrated from Mecca to Medina, the journey known as the Hijra. For Muslim nations, the system is Anno Hegirae ("in the year of the Hijra"). For Muslims, the current year is 1432 AH. So in Arab countries, the current year is not 2010 AD (after the death of our Lord), it's the year 1432AH.

Because they are not Christian nations.

On our currency we have “In God We Trust”

Every time you date a check, pick up a newspaper, or pull a dollar from your wallet in the United States, you bear witness to the spiritual origins of our country.

America is a Christian nation.

Republican President Abraham Lincoln in dedicating the military cemetery at Gettysburg said, "we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Matthew 24-9 “ye shall be hated of all Nations for my name’s sake”

The following Individuals do believe in “One Nation Under God“ and the 2nd Amendment.


Bill Johnson for US Congress in Ohiio District 6
Rob Portman forOhio US Senate
John Kasich for Ohio Governor
Jon Husted for Ohio Secretary of State
 

And a Muslim Nation, and a Hindu Nation, and a Bhuddist Nation and a ....

The United States is a country where approximately 75% of the population claims belief in at least one of the various Christian denominations or cults.

Christianity has absolutely nothing to do with the nation as a whole and religion is strictly separated from governmental matters as a matter of policy.

Just because you keep saying it over and over doesn't make it true.

Wrong, as usual, but predictable, as usual.

It always amazes me that those who don't believe in something, fear most what they don't believe. And, those who know the least about something, claim to be the experts on the something they know least about. :wacko::to_pick_ones_nose:
:confused::crazy_pilot:

If this is a "christian nation" and founded as such, why were jews fighting in the Revolutionary War? And by the way, kindly remember that Jesus (I hope you realize that is not his real name) was born a jew and his name, most likely, was Joshua,or yoshua; Jesus was the greek name given to him in the transliteration of the bible texts--so kindly remember there would be no "christianity" without a jewish religion in the first place.

The Hebrew people were the chosen ones, the pathway you might say to bring the Messiah into the world so yes Jesus was a Jew. The Old Testament law given to the children of Israel was a foreshadow of the redemption that would be offered to all the world, Jew and Gentile alike through Jesus Christ. So yes, although the majority of the founding fathers were of a Christian faith the proper term is we were founded on Judao/Christian principals.

A lot of people fought in our Revolutionary War, not all were Christian. It was a war of independence and freedom for all who fought. Your absolutely correct about no Christianity without the Jewish Religion in the first place. Romans 11:11-26

All you need to know to answer this question is contained in the early documents in American history, especially the state constitutions. Interestingly, several states had oaths of office in the first hundred years swearing a Christian allegiance. It is the fact that America started as a Christian nation that we have freedom of religion. You don't see this in other nations with other religions. Just ask what your Christian rights are in Saudi for instance.

If we are arguing today whether America is a Christian nation, I would vote that it is actually much more pagan than Christian at this time. The remnant is the only aspect that keeps the full wrath of God off of this country at this time. Yet even the remnant will one day not be enough to prevent the wrath that is surely to come.

So, yes, we absolutely started as a Christian nation but in just two generations, from my mother to my children, it is now openly in rebellion against godliness.
 
I suggest the "trollers" go visit the musuem at Ellis Island, in New York City.
You will see just some of the nations, customs, religions that came here.
Even today people are coming in legally, and illegally from all over the world, who are not of the christian faith.
In america there are public houses of worship of every kind.
You are even allowed to worship on your own, in private.
The natives who were here first had their own religion.
America is a land of many nations, races, colors, and creeds.
Just because you say it is true, does not make it so.
Christian religion has had a major infulence, however it is not the alpha, and the omega, when it comes to the law.
Show me where it say's America is a Christian Nation.

I.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Thank you guys for thoughtful and proper comments and replies on an interesting subject. From a now-closed thread, I was getting to the point where I really wondered what happened to many of you who always had positive comments on a host of gun-related and non-gun-related subjects--this particular thread has proven to be a refreshing air of responsibile and interesting exchange of thoughts and comments.

Are you really as dumb as you act? Have you not read any of the early writings of our founders. Or do you just prefer lies to admitting the truth? Will Rogers said once that "everyone is ignorant only on different subjects. You are obviously ignorant on American History which may be the result of the public school system. What is sad is you have no desire to do anything about your ignorance. I also have to wonder why you see fit to spend so much effort in being a first class jerk. I realize that not everyone is a Christian or ever will be but you sir seem to be on a mission to see just how big an ass you can make out of yourself. I am not sure what causes you tho be the way you are but why do you not just grow up and come off the pity party.

The word Christian means to be Christlike. America has stepped away from it's Christian values that it was built upon.
The year is 1774 the first appointed Congressional chaplain is Jacob Duche
And in 1789 The House chose William Lynn, a Presbyterian minister from Philadelphia, as its first chaplain, and the Senate picked Samuel Provoost, Episcopal bishop from New York. It wasn't until the mid 1900's that a non Christian was appoint as a Congressional Chaplain.

The constitutionality of the chaplains’ prayers was upheld in 1983 by the Supreme
Court (Marsh v. Chambers, 463 U.S. 783) on the grounds of precedent and tradition. The
Court cited the practice going back to the Continental Congress in 1774 and noted that the
custom “is deeply embedded in the history and tradition of this country” from colonial
times and the founding of the republic. Further, the Court held that the use of prayer “has
become part of the fabric of our society,” coexisting with “the principles of
disestablishment and religious freedom.”
