Our Nations Founding Fathers

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Our nation’s founding fathers were not deists as some may suggest.  Deism, according to Webster, is belief in the existence of God as the creator of the universe who after setting it in motion abandoned it, assumed no control over life, exerted no influence on natural phenomena, and gave no supernatural revelation.  Our Founding Fathers were, basically, Judeo-Christians.  They were not deists.  Most of them did believe in God (Elohim) as the creator of the universe.  Through His son, Jehovah, who later became Jesus Christ, they created the heavens and the earth.  Michael, who later became Adam, helped create the earth.

Yes, God set the universe in motion but really did not abandon it.  That is not the correct term to use.  God, through his Son’s great Plan of Salvation or Plan of Happiness, deliberately gave man his free agency.  In other words, he did not abandon man but gave man the right to choose for himself the dichotomies of right vs. wrong, left vs. right, lies vs. the truth, evil vs. righteousness, and other such binary choices.  However, with all choices come associated consequences—whether they are desirable or undesirable.

Yes, He did not assume control over life, but, instead, He allowed man to control his own life through his personal choices.  Hence, man, through his own choices, determines his own destiny.  After this test that we call life on earth, man will determine whether he will return to God’s presence or remain in Satan’s control after this earth life.  Yes, God does not control life like the liberals/progressives assume to control all of our lives through the great Nanny State.

God does not exert influence on natural phenomena like the liberals/progressives attempt to influence human phenomena through manufactured disasters, the Cloward-Piven Strategy, and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.  As Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”

Yes, God does not give supernatural revelation personally.  However, He does give revelation through His living prophets here on earth.  This is a concept that many in the world have a difficult time understanding.  However, I find it easy to understand because we have God’s mouthpiece on earth today to reveal whatever we need to know.  In other words, I believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and I believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God (paraphrased from the 9th Article of Faith).  Therefore, do not be swayed by the things that some people make up, for they know not of what they speak.  When you have a true understanding of their hidden motives or hidden agendas, you will not be confused by their tactics.

    The American founding fathers and mothers were miss-fits suffering religious persecution in Europe. That’s the reason they fled to America, not because they were mainstream Judeo-Christians. When the ruling elite and their side kick the church turned up later, they committed genocide on the native population deliberately handing out smallpox infected blankets to clear the land for god fearing christians who accepted their subject to the ruling elite slave status.
