There never has been a flaw in history of the christian values of America. Were are one nation under God, And if we reject that than God will not be with us, He will be against us, In the bible there are tons of people who die because of their rejection to God.
It's one big booty party right now, Western civilization. But when Christianity ends, So does the West. It is an interesting fact that Europe (and America) is currently in the Second Dark Age of Western civilization. All these words we type? All these big, Lofty plans of 'equality' we make? SILLY. In another 200 years Western technology will be completely gone and all of it will have meant NOTHING. The faster we mock the Christ dude out of existence, The faster our descendants will return to the 3rd world.
Just as a thought, If we consider the past, The US has had predominately Christian influence in the nation's growth and prosperity as well as cultural growth -- founding documents clearly attest to this fact. The Christian faith speaks of togetherness, Inclusivity, Temperance, Patience, And kindness -- many of the ideas from the Enlightenment happened because everyone also had access to the Bible now -- don't forget.
But as yet the nation has clearly not maintained that Christian heritage. We are not stewards of creation, And culture has clearly turned adverse to Christian mindset, If not antagonistic.
Yet, As we can clearly see the stats of poverty (what happens when we lack charity) and the stats of fatherless children(what happens when we lack integrity) and the stats of domestic abuse (when we lack love as in 1 Corinthians love not as in the love defined by sitcoms and Cosmo articles) and the stats on abortion (when 95% are about birth control and not life or death situations, We are clearly lacking self control). I do ask, What values does the Christian world offer that offends people so much? When we are called to care for others greater than ourselves (Philippians 2:3) and to always act from a place of love (1 corinthians 16:14) be slow to anger and slow to speak but quick to listen (James 1:19), What is there to lose?
One commentator said that the Christian world view is based on the 10 commandments which is contrary to the concept of religious freedom, And this is certainly incorrect. Yes, Christians are called to have only one God and nothing before Him, But Christians are not called to condemn someone -- that is not our job (Matt 7, Luke 6, John 8, James 4, And it goes on). We are called to honor the greatest commandment -- to love God with all OUR heart -- not force someone into it, That's not love -- and to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matt 22:36). In fact the 10 commandments are not laws of a land but laws of our heart, The first 4 about God and a person, The other 6 are meant for person to person -- I believe that's the break down, I may be off by one or two.
TL:DR -- Historically, US is Christian influenced. Culturally the US is not Christian influenced, Christian values do not harm the people but can truly enhance the nation's connectedness and unity.
Two people, I assume, Typed in random consonants and punctuation. And that is just on their front page. They most likely said no because they had no proof, Or they said no because they are negative people. And now, I am going to type some random words to be able to post this. :)
Let's google "Pilgrim" "a person who journeys to a sacred place for religious reasons. " keyword being "religious reasons". The Pilgrims were here to practice how they thought Christianity should be. They eventually found this great country.
Those who disagree are denying the past of this country.
In God we Trust.
Humans in Nature follow Natural Law which Is, The strongest among human survives, The weaker members are forced to surrender and live under the domination of the stronger members. A society composed of humanity, If it is to survive, Needs laws in order for the strong as well as the weaker, To be able to live together in peace.
One of America's earliest presidents believed that, " our government rests upon Religion. . . " President Calvin Coolidge said the following about our government,
" Our government rests upon religion. It is from this source that we derive our reverence for truth and justice, For equality, And liberty, And for the rights of mankind. Unless the people believe in these principles they can not believe in our government. " President Calvin Coolidge OCTOBER 15 Th. 1924
The values put in our laws are more human values than religious. Valuing human life. Fair treatment and the rest tend to be values all religions share because they are not religious but human values. If we began to make laws that are specific to religion, Then that would be a problem but so far we really don't have such a issue.
Unlike the opposition believes, The United States of America was not born because of Christian values, But because of Enlightenment Ideals that made people believe in liberty and freedom.
Pilgrims were English Colonizers rather than Americans who fought in the revolution, They are 100 years apart, Even if many may be the descendants of them, The revolution wasn't fought upon Christian values, America's value of Democracy and Freedom is a more human value rather than religious.
Keeping a Christian value means following the ten commandments, Which directly contradicts with the first amendment mentioning religious freedom, 1st commandment states you shall not have any god before him, That prevents others from having a different belief.
Even if we ignore the 1st commandment, Many of those values claimed to be Christian can be achieved without being a Christian, They are human values rather than religious value.
Not everyone is Christian and America was colonized as a way to find religious freedom, Not to force religion onto others. That's literally what people were trying to escape. Personally, If you believe in God I have nothing against you or your beliefs but not everyone should have to believe in your faith.
SO umhh guys America was founded on religious freedom? ! ? ! Read the constitution you uneducated walnuts before you respond. Because would you like women to have no rights like in the bible? DO YOU? YOU ILLITERATE CASHEWS. Read the thing you worship before you respond, Because it might bite your back.
The values of this nation are deist and enlightenment values of the founders, The founders were not atheistic but they were extremely critical or organized religion and Christian Dogma, The values of our nation and its government are secular but the protect the rights of private citizens to practice their values as long as they don't force,
there specific dogmas on others, There are universal laws you don't steal, You don't rape or murder( a fetus doesn't count) those are values everyone humanist and religious accept, Individuals are free to accept or reject christian dogma, The government has from day one been prohibited from establishing a state religion
