America: Fullest Expression of a Christian Nation

Posted By Foundation for American Christian Education, Tuesday, March 20, 2018

The universe is regulated by natural, God-breathed laws and God in His loving Providential care revealed those laws through His written Word that we might study, learn and live in peace by them.

In The Marrow of Theology—a work which was taught at Yale and Harvard for 150 years and influences the thinking of the Founders—America’s theologian William Ames taught that theology is a dichotomy (a “whole” idea divided into two parts), Faith and Observance.

The Ten Commandments, the basis of our modern system of law, teaches us “Observance” and undergirds how we relate as a society in all aspects of governance from our places of worship, to our family life, to our commerce, and to foreign relations.

When we study the Law, we learn that there are two basic ideas—the first five commands instruct us in how to worship and love God; the second five commands teach us how to live in peace and harmony with our fellow humans. This is how we learn our moral and social duties.

The duties of men are summarily comprised in the ten commandments, consisting of two tables. One table comprehends the duties that we owe immediately to God—the other, the duties we owe to our fellow men. Christ himself has reduced these commandments under two general precepts, which enjoin upon us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and with all our strength—and to love our neighbor as ourselves. On these Two Great Commandments hand all the law and the prophets—that is , they comprehend the substance of all the doctrines and precepts of the Bible, or the whole of religion.
Noah Webster

Consider and Ponder: The Ten Commandments that were posted in churches, public squares and school classrooms throughout our nation. They have been removed systemically, purging our citizens and youth of the very foundational truths that preserves our liberty. What has been the result?
