4 Historical Facts of the Founding Period

Four historical facts from the time of this country’s founding:

  1. The Founding Fathers had a broad libertarian and expansive understanding of the Christian faith, which lent itself to being inclusive of the enlightenment, historic philosophy, and intellectual and scientific pursuits.
  2. The Christian faith was uniformly professed, practiced (albeit imperfectly), encouraged and respected.
  3. Christianity was part of the common law, and the general morality of the bible was uniformly the standard for societal norms.
  4. Reliance on God and understanding his will were considered basics to the health and happiness of the people, and to the welfare of the country.
