The U.S. Constitution depends on Religion and Morality

John Adams was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, Vice President to George Washington and later, second President of the U.S.A.   He wrote  the following to the Massachusetts Militia in 1797:   

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . .Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people.  It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”

His words reveal both his Puritan heritage and the thinking of our Founding Fathers.  James Madison, the “Father of our Constitution" and later the fourth President of the U.S.A. declared a “national day of prayer and fasting” during the War of 1812. 

In  January of 1802, Thomas Jefferson, third President of the U.S.A., wrote to the Danbury Baptist Association, in reply to their letter of October 1801.  In, part, Jefferson stated: 

I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.

Our Founding Fathers were all raised in Colonial America, where the Bible was openly acknowledged as the written Word of God.  They rightly understood the following Biblical doctrines and historical facts: 

·       Men are basically sinful (Romans 3:10-23).

·       Men need self-government according to the Ten Commandments.

·       Only the fear and love of God will cause men to keep the Law of God.

·       Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

·       Government needs to be limited by checks and balances

This is why Madison and other Founding Fathers created a government with three equal, but separate, branches: Legislative (Congress) Executive (President) and Judicial (Supreme Court).  They wanted limited government with checks and balances.

The opposite of limited government is unlimited government where some sinful dictator has absolute power over the people.  Tyrants trample on the rights of individuals because they neither fear nor love God.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Yet tyranny (totalitarian government) is necessary when men no longer respect the Law of God.  If the governed cannot respect God's Law-Word, neither will they respect man-made laws.  In a lawless society, the government must step in, eventually, with force.

If people neither fear nor love God, they will take marriage vows lightly.  They will not truly honor parents, nor any duly constituted authorityif they feel they can get away with it.  John Adams warned against human passions unbridled by morality and religion.

Lying, cheating, slander, whoredom, homosexuality, hatred, murder, theft, witchcraft will all blossom in an ungodly society.  Blasphemy, cursing and filthy language all act as a social barometer for any society.  They all increase as the society falls apart.

Today, many left-wing public officials will swear (falsely) to uphold the Constitution, and then do all they can to destroy it (or subvert its original intent).  John Adams knew that if a public official fears not God, he will break his oath of office whenever convenient.

Adams realized that only morality and religion would keep men honest and upright in all their dealings with their fellow men.  He understood that only morality and religion (read Biblical Christianity of Colonial America) could keep our society from falling apart. 

The U.S. Constitution depends on morality and religion.  As John Adams wrote,  “Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people.  It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our

For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.
