America is a country whose laws and ethics have been deeply influenced by Judeo Christian principles. America is a country whose leaders publicly prayed to God for America in times of danger, and publicly gave thanks to God in time of deliverance for over 350 years of our colonial and United States history. These truths are a matter of historical record, yet these truths are being denied, and redacted by secularists who do not want to be accountable to a righteous God. Our children are no longer allowed to pray in schools after 340 years of school prayer. Everywhere the American Civil Liberties Union seeks to remove God from the public square. But to accomplish their mission, secularists must first rewrite American history.
Rock of the Republic is designed to support individuals, teachers and students with a narrative and instruction regarding America's Founders and demonstrate the influence of the Judeo-Christian teaching on American Law and Ethics recommended by the Teaching and Learning Foundation* and published by Teaching Point
For hundreds of years, American students have been taught history through the lens of personal liberty, religious freedom, and economic opportunity. Historians wrote that America’s founders and Framers of the Constitution were deeply moral men who believed that our liberties were a gift from God and not from men. Judeo-Christian thinking profoundly influenced American Law through our founders and framers of the Constitution.
However, in the 1960’s, many historians began to embrace economics as the motivation of our founders and framers. In addition, multiculturalists began to question American exceptionalism. These new historians began re-writing history as traditionally taught, teaching now that America was a country of economic imperialism and selfish expansionism.
The Pulitzer Prize winning author of 1776 and John Adams David McCullough has said that our children’s ignorance of American History is a threat to national security. He is right; ignorance of American history is eroding Americans of their lliberty and protection under the Constitution.
Banning of school prayer, public displays of the Ten Commandments and teaching of the Founder’s belief system are a way toward replacing Man's God given rights to rights allowed by government. If allowed to continue and grow, this new system without God as the ultimate authority, and of government as all powerful, threatens tyranny and the American free enterprise system with socialist redistribution, nationalism of industries, and a track toward fascism and communism.
Rock of the Republic provides eight lessons in twelve 55 minute sessions that take students through the ideas of the early settlers, the faith-based writings and speeches of the Founding Fathers. It provides historic profiles and quotes of American Settlers, Founders, Framers of the Constitution , and great thinkers like de Tocqueville and Blackstone. Rock of the Republic contains little known quotes from the speeches and meetings of modern leaders like Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy well into the 20th Century who publicly prayed for America during times of crisis, and gave public thanks to God in America’s deliverance.
The author’s two year research effort using both well known texts and speeches, as well as books out of print for decades, prove without a doubt that America is a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and whose Constitution is based upon Biblical morality. Rock of the Republic is a treasure trove of the thoughts and beliefs of those who founded America, wrote her laws and led her during time of crisis.
Here are a few of the hundreds of examples in Rock of the Republic: “Our Constitution was made for only a moral and religious people, it is inadequate to the government of any others.” John Adams
“I have lived sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?” Benjamin Franklin Constitutional Convention of 1787.
