A House Divided - Part 2

There’s been a lot of talk that the nation, as a democracy, was founded on Christian principles. This type of argument is another wedge used to divide America. Christianity was flourishing for fifteen hundred years and nobody thought about democracy. The secret ingredient which sparked the passion for freedom in the founding fathers was the Native American culture, especially the Iroquois Nation, which refrained from giving power to any one person.

The British actually tried to discredit the upstart revolutionaries by lumping them in with the Indians. On the eve of the American Revolution, one British article being circulated stated condescendingly: “The darling passion of the American is liberty, and that in its fullest extent; nor is it the original natives only to whom this passion is confined. Our colonists, sent thither, seem to have imbibed the same principles.” Here the British suggest that it is the American natives who are poluting the colonist with ideas about liberty. It was, in fact, a Christian nation – England – which tried to squelch the colonists' hopes for freedom and democracy.

Why listen to the dividers of America whether they come in the guise of politicans, religionists, or industrialists? Demand honesty, integrity and civility from so-called leaders.

"Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand." The words of Jesus
