America Is Great Because She Is GoodThe Love Commandment

America is an idea that was inspired by God.

George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and the other Founding Fathers gave us a nation that is based on God and the Bible.

The government they created has proven itself to be the best government ever devised.  It has allowed us to enjoy unprecedented liberty and prosperity for more than two hundred years.

Over those years, many men have died to preserve this freedom for us.

At the conclusion of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, he refers to the American patriots who died there:

“We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville came to America to discover the secret of her greatness, and this was his conclusion:

“In the end, the state of the Union comes down to the character of the people. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors, her ample rivers, and it was not there. I sought for it in the fertile fields, and boundless prairies, and it was not there. I sought for it in her rich mines, and vast world commerce, and it was not there.

Not until I went into the churches of America, and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. . . . America is great because she is good. If America ever ceases to be good, then she will cease to be great.”

I cannot believe that the American people will sit back and watch our enemies—foreign and domestic—take away our freedom. Beause we are the United States of America. We the people of the United States are the country. We outrank the government. The majority of us are religious and moral people.

According to a Rassmussen poll, 79% of all adult Americans believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. We really are a Christian nation, and we always have been. That is why we are still the greatest nation in the world. And this government of the people, by the people, and for the people will never perish from the earth.
