Scriptures: Robert Embry
The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts.”

Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
John Jay: First Chef-Justice on the U.S. Supreme
Been Wrong All These Years?

As you walk up the steps to the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. which houses the Supreme Court, you can see near the top of the building a row of the world’s givers. And each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view… it is Moses and the Ten Commandments!
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door. As you step inside the courtroom, you can see the wall right above where the Supreme Court judges sit. There above them sit a display of the Ten Commandments!
There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D. C..
James Madison, the fourth president, known as “The Father of Our Constitution” made the following statement… “We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
Patrick Henry, that patriot and one of the Founding Fathers of our nation said… “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians…not on religion but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.
Fifty-two of the fifty-five founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the Colonies.
Thomas Jefferson worried that the courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting law would begin making laws.
The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said… “Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers.”
How then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for the past 223 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional? It is past time for us, as Christians, to take a stand for which is right and scriptural!
