American Study, USA Government, and list of Presidents
Fact is, USA is a Nation under THE GOD of the Holy Bible.
The USA is a Nation founded on the Holy Bible, having a Constitution embedded with the Laws of OUR God.
The very FIRST United States Supreme Court Chief-Justice, John Jay, confirms this ~
Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is their DUTY as well as privilege, and in the interest of our CHRISTIAN nation to select and prefer CHRISTIANS for their Rulers.
To prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the USA has always been a Christian Nation by the words of our previous 43 Presidents themselves.
So, we begin with one of our most devout Christian Presidents, our very FIRST President; the man who consecrated and dedicated the USA to Almighty God, known as the Praying General, George Washington ~
GEORGE WASHINGTONDo not let any one claim to be a TRUE American if they ever attempt to remove OUR RELIGION (Christianity) from politics. “You do well to wish to learn American arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of JESUS CHRIST.
“To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our HIGHEST GLORY to add the more distinguished character of CHRISTIAN.
The propitious smiles of Heaven can NEVER BE EXPECTED on a nation that DISREGARDS the Eternal rules of Order and Right which Heaven itself hath ORDAINED.
It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible
JOHN ADAMSThe Christian religion is, ABOVE ALL the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, THE Religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity.
“WE recognize NO Sovereign but GOD, and NO King but JESUS!
I have examined all religions, and the result is that the Bible is the best book in the world. ~ John Adams
THOMAS JEFFERSONThe Christian religion is the BEST religion that has EVER been given to man.
I am a REAL Christian. That is to say, a DISCIPLE of the Doctrines of JESUS CHRIST.
The reason that Christianity is the best friend of government is because Christianity is the only religion that changes the heart ~ Thomas Jefferson
JAMES MADISON“CURSED BE ALL that learning that is CONTRARY to the cross of CHRIST.” FAITH OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS James Madison "WE HAVE STAKED THE WHOLE FUTURE OF AMERICAN CIVILIZATION, NOT UPON THE POWER OF GOVERNMENT, FAR FROM IT. WE HAVE STAKED THE FUTURE OF ALL OF OUR POLITICAL INSTITUTIONS UPON THE CAPACITY OF EACH AND ALL OF US TO GOVERN OURSELVES ACCORDING TO THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD"
JAMES MONROE ~ The Educator“The liberty, prosperity, and the happiness of our country will always be the object of my most fervent prayers to the SUPREME AUTHOR of All Good.” “Before ANY man can be considered as a MEMBER of civil society, he MUST be considered as a subject of THE Governor of the Universe. And to the same DIVINE AUTHOR of every good and perfect gift we are indebted for all those privileges and advantages, religious as well as civil, which are so richly enjoyed in this favored land.” "When we view the great blessings with which our country has been favored, those which we now enjoy, and the means which we possess of handing them down unimpaired to our latest posterity, our attention is irresistibly drawn to the source from whence they flow. Let us, then, unite in offering our most grateful acknowledgements for these blessings to the Divine Author of All Good" (His 2nd Annual Message to Congress, November)
JOHN QUINCY ADAMS“The FIRST and almost the ONLY Book deserving of universal attention is the Holy BIBLE. I speak as a man of the world, and I say to you, ‘SEARCH the Scriptures’.” “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.” "THE BIBLE IS THE BOOK OF ALL OTHERS, TO BE READ AT ALL AGES, AND IN ALL CONDITIONS OF HUMAN LIFE"
ANDREW JACKSON“THAT Book (Holy Bible), sir, is the ROCK on which OUR Republic RESTS.” “Americans are NOT a perfect people, but we are CALLED to a perfect MISSION.” "That book, Sir [Bible] is the rock on which our republic rest"

May it be among the dispensations of HIS providence to bless our beloved country with honors and with length of days.” "The atonement of Jesus Christ is the only remedy and rest for my soul" ~ Martin Van Buren

JAMES K. POLK“It becomes us in humility to make our devout acknowledgments to the SUPREME RULER of the Universe for the inestimable civil and religious blessings with which WE are favored.”
ZACHARY TAYLOR“The Holy Bible is THE BEST of books, and I wish it were in the hands of EVERY ONE. It is indispensable to the safety and permanence of our institutions. A free government can not exist WITHOUT Biblical religion and morals, and there CANNOT be morals without religion. Especially should the Bible be placed in the hands of THE YOUNG. It is the best SCHOOL BOOK in the world. I would that ALL our people were brought up under the influence of that HOLY BOOK.”
MILLARD FILLMORE“May GOD save the country, for it is evident that the PEOPLE will not.”
FRANKLIN PIERCE“Let not the foundation of our hope rest upon MAN’S wisdom. It will NOT be sufficient that sectional prejudices find no place in the public deliberations. It will NOT be sufficient that the rash counsels of human passion are rejected. It must be felt that there is NO NATIONAL SECURITY but in the nation’s HUMBLE, acknowledged dependence upon GOD and His overruling providence.” "It must be felt that there is no national security but in the nation's humble, acknowledged dependence upon God and His overruling providence"
JAMES BUCHANAN“There is nothing stable BUT Heaven and the Constitution.”
ABRAHAM LINCOLN“Sir, my concern is NOT whether God is on OUR side; my greatest concern is to BE ON God’s side, for God is ALWAYS RIGHT.” “It is the DUTY of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of GOD.. and to recognize the sublime Truth, announced in the HOLY Scriptures and proven by all history, that THOSE nations only are blessed whose God is THE LORD.” “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we DESTROYED OURSELVES.” "I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good of the Savior of the world is communicated to us through the Book" ` President Abraham Lincoln
ANDREW JOHNSON“I do believe in Almighty God! And I believe also in the Bible.. Let us look forward to the time when we can take the flag of our country and nail it below THE CROSS, and there let it wave as it waved in the olden times, and let us gather around it and inscribed for OUR MOTTO: “Liberty and Union, one and inseparable, now and forever,” and exclaim, CHRIST FIRST, our country next.”
ULYSSES S. GRANT“Hold fast to THE BIBLE as the sheet anchor of your liberties, write it’s precepts in your hearts, and practice them in your lives. To the influence of this Book are we INDEBTED for all the progress made in true civilization, and to THIS we must look as our GUIDE in the future. Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people.” "Hold fast to the Bible as the sheet-anchor of your liberties; write its precepts in your hearts and practice them in your hearts and practice them in your lives. To the influence of this book we are indebted for all the progress made in true civilization, and to this we must look as our guide in the future.

#22 & 24:
GROVER CLEVELAND“ALL must admit that the reception of the teachings of CHRIST results in the purest PATRIOTISM, in the most scrupulous FIDELITY to public trust, and in the best type of CITIZENSHIP.”
BENJAMIN HARRISON“If you take out of your statutes, your constitution, your family life all that is taken from THE Sacred Book (Holy Bible), what would there BE LEFT to bind society together?”
WILLIAM MCKINLEY“The more profoundly WE STUDY this wonderful Book (Holy Bible), and the more closely we observe IT’S Divine precept, the BETTER citizens we will become and the HIGHER will be our destiny as A NATION.”
THEODORE ROOSEVELT“I believe that the next half century will determine if we will ADVANCE the cause of CHRISTIAN civilization or revert to the horrors of brutal PAGANISM.” “It is NECESSARY for the welfare of the NATION that men’s lives be BASED ON the principles of the Holy BIBLE. No man, educated or uneducated, can afford to be IGNORANT of the Bible.” "A through knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education" ~ THEODORE ROOSEVELT
WILLIAM TAFT“I love judges, and I love courts. They are my ideals, that typify on earth what WE SHALL MEET hereafter in Heaven under a Just GOD.”
WOODROW WILSON“The BIBLE is the one SUPREME source of revelation of the MEANING of life, the NATURE of God, and spiritual nature and NEEDS of men.

WARREN G. HARDING“It is my conviction that the fundamental TROUBLE with the people of the United States is that they have gotten TOO FAR AWAY from Almighty GOD.” "It is impossible for one who has studied at all the services of the Hebrew people to avoid the faith that they will one day be restored to their historic national home and there enter on a new and yet greater phase of their contribution to the advance of humanity" ~ President Warren Harding

HERBERT HOOVER“The whole INSPIRATION of our civilization springs from the teachings of CHRIST and the lessons of the PROPHETS. To read the Bible for these fundamentals is a NECESSITY of American life.”
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT“If we will not prepare to GIVE ALL that we have and ALL that we are to PRESERVE Christian civilization in our land, we shall go to DESTRUCTION.” "[The United States is] founded on the principles of Christianity" ~ FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT
HARRY TRUMAN“THIS is a CHRISTIAN Nation.” “The fundamental BASIS of this nation’s laws was given to MOSES on the Mount. The fundamental BASIS of our Bill of Rights comes from the TEACHINGS we get from Exodus and Saint Matthew, from Isaiah and Saint Paul.. If we don’t have a proper fundamental MORAL background, we will finally end up with a TOTALITARIAN government which does NOT believe in rights for anybody EXCEPT the State.” "I had faith in Israel before it was established, I have in it now. I believe it has a glorious future before it - not just another sovereign nation, but as an embodiment of the great ideals of our civilization" ~ Harry S. Truman
DWIGHT EISENHOWER“WITHOUT GOD there could be NO American form of government, NOR an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the FIRST, the most basic, expression of AMERICANISM. Thus, the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus with GOD’S HELP, it will continue to be.” "A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both" ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
JOHN F. KENNEDY“The rights of man come NOT from the generosity of the state but from the HAND OF GOD.” AMERICA HAS BEEN "STRENGTHENED BY CHRISTIAN MORALITY" ~ JOHN F. KENNEDY

“I DEEPLY believe that the loving GOD who gave us this land should NEVER have been expelled from America’s CLASSROOMS. If the Congress can begin its day with prayer, CHILDREN CAN TOO.”
GEORGE H.W. BUSH“Lincoln said you CANNOT be President WITHOUT spending some time on your knees (in PRAYER to God). I have repeated that and a bunch of Atheists got all over me. Wait a minute. Does that mean that you CANNOT be President if you are an ATHIEST? I say YEA that does mean THAT.”
BILL CLINTON~The Holy BIBLE is the Authoritative WORD OF GOD and contains all TRUTH.~
GEORGE W. BUSH~Ive been in the BIBLE every day since Ive been President.~ ~When you turn your heart and your life over to Christ, when you accept Christ as the savior, it changes your heart" ~ George W. Bush
~ Now, I’m not saying every President was a devout Christian, Yet, one thing ALL previous Presidents had in common was, regardless of how open they were about their Christian life or how faithfully they lived it, ALL of them recognized that The GOD of America was and IS The God of The Holy Bible.
YaHWeH God The Father, The Lord JESUS Christ and The Holy Ghost. THIS forever has been and will be America’s ONE TRUE GOD. Like it or not. Love it or leave it. Our forefathers, founders who put so much work and effort into making America a God-fearing Judeo-Christian Nation. Founders like Constitution ratifier, Patrick Henry, who said ~ “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. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship HERE.~
Or, Ben Franklin, who said ~As to JESUS of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and HIS Religion, as He left them to us, is the BEST the world EVER saw, or is likely TO SEE.~

Slavery HistoryBetween 1525 and 1866, in the entire history of the slave trade to the New World, according to the Trans-Atlantic Slave records 12.5 Million Africans were shipped to the New World. 10.7 Million survived the passage, disembarking in North & South America, and the Caribbean. And how many went to the USA, 388,000. That's right: a tiny percent. Incredibly, most of the 42 Million members of the African-American community descend from this tiny group of less than half a Million Africans. And today, in the year 2017, we have about 21.5 million slaves in the world, many owned in Muslim Countries. this is about 50 times as many as the total slaves that were in the USA. The world needs to do more to end all slavery.
Northern Aggression (War Between The States, Civil War)The South was invaded by the North, started in Charleston, SC and the South responded to Northern aggression.
The famous Englishman Winston Churchill stated that the war between the North and South was one of the most unpreventable wars in history. The Cause that the Confederate States of America fought for (1861-1865) was Southern Independence from the United States of America. Many parallels exist between the War for American Independence ( 1775-1783 ) and the War for Southern Independence.
The Northern industrialists had wanted a war since about 1830 to get the South's resources ( land-cotton- coal-timber- minerals ) for pennies on the dollar.
New England States were responsible for the development of slavery in America. The first state to legalize slavery was Massachusetts in 1641 In colonial times the economic infrastructure of the port cities of the North was dependent upon the slave trade. The first slave ship in America, "THE DESIRE", was fitted out in Marblehead, Massachusetts.
The United States of America was founded as a Constitutional Federal Republic in 1789 composed of a Limited Federal Government and Sovereign States. The North wanted to and did alter the form of Government this nation was founded upon.
The North was about to lose the war, and could not convince enough people to fight it. So he started a campaign that the war was to end Slavery in the South (Not the Northern states where slavery had started.
There were more slaveholders in the Union Army ( 315,000 ) than the Confederate Army ( 200,000 ). Statistics also show that about 300,000 blacks supported the Confederacy versus only 200,000 for the Union. Clearly the war would have been fought along different lines if it had been fought over slavery. The famous English author Charles Dickens stated " the Northern onslaught upon Southern slavery is a specious piece of humbug designed to mask their desire for the economic control of the Southern states."
These were the words declared by the United States Supreme Court in 1892, This is a Christian Nation.
