America's Christian Heritage


America was founded by strong believers in Jesus Christ. It was the world's greatest example of freedom and Christian principles. It befriended God's Chosen People, both before and after Israel was reborn as a modern nation. It was blessed by God in keeping with the promise given to Abraham.

I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you
- Genesis 12:3

Prophecy students have wondered for decades why the United States will not apparently be a major player in the Bible’s End Times scenario. Europe is predicted as a Revived Roman Empire, but with a much weaker composition than ancient Rome. Ancient biblical lands will be involved in the prophetic future. They have modern names: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and others. But how could the one great “superpower” of our generation be ignored at the end of this age? Just a few years ago we could not have imagined how rapidly our beloved country would decline.

An honest evaluation of The United States today reveals that we are growing weaker economically, militarily, and above all, spiritually.

Many Churches in America are retreating from a literal interpretation of the Bible, and have allowed the corrupting influences of secular humanism, the sexual revolution, abortion, and other false beliefs and practices to slowly infiltrate their leadership. This change is predicted in the Bible. It is called apostasy, or a “falling away” from the truth.

As a result, our nation is in danger of God's judgment. But like the biblical example of Nineveh, whose people repented in Jonah's days, there could be a great revival first. We are praying for this!

Historian: Thomas Jefferson was pro-religion

Jan. 1, 2015 - Historian David Barton, author of "The Jefferson Lies," explains that Thomas Jefferson's concept of the “separation of church and state” was only to insure that the federal government would not establish a church like England had done. He was not al all in favor of banishing religion from the public square. In an interview, Barton says, "The man who wrote the Declaration of Independence was always “pro-Jesus, pro-Christian, pro-religion.” He also says,

“It is interesting that through 1876 the largest church in the United States was the one that met inside the U.S. Capitol, something that Jefferson helped start.”
