Some Quotes from Our Founding Fathers as We Celebrate Independence Day.

As I was searching for quotes regarding America being founded as a Christian nation, I came across a great website with lots of them listed.  I will share some of them today as we begin our celebration of freedom.  You can find the website here.


“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”
- George Washington

“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
- George Washington

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable.”
- George Washington, Thanksgiving Proclamation 1789


“We have this day [Fourth of July] restored the Sovereign to whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in Heaven, and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His Kingdom come.”
- Samuel Adams

“We recognize no sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus.”
- John Adams and John Hancock

“The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.”
- John Adams


“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
- John Adams

“I have examined all religions, and the result is that the Bible is the best book in the world.” – John Adams


“[The Fourth of July] ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.” – John Adams

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.- Patrick Henry


Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is their duty – as well as privilege and interest – of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.
- John Jay


God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.
- Thomas Jefferson, Jefferson Memorial


Education is useless without the Bible. The Bible was America’s basic text book in all fields. God’s Word, contained in the Bible, has furnished all necessary rules to direct our conduct.
- Noah Webster


“[The Bible] is the rock on which our Republic rests.”
- Andrew Jackson

“I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had absolutely no other place to go.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of The Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian…This is a Christian nation”
- United States Supreme Court Decision in Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 1892

“We have staked the whole future of our new nation, not upon the power of government; far from it. We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments.
- James Madison

“Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ.”
- James Madison
