Rhon's Inspiration Station: Our Real Roots Part 3
A MESSAGE FROM MY INSPIRATION STATION – RHON
This is one e-mail that I need to share with you all, we are NOT too late yet!
In 1782, the United States Congress voted this resolution:
‘The congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools.’
William Holmes McGuffey is the author of the McGuffey Reader, which was used for over 100 years in our public schools with over 125 million copies sold until it was stopped in 1963. President Lincoln called him the ‘Schoolmaster of the Nation.’
Listen to these words of Mr. McGuffey: ‘The Christian religion is the religion of our country. >From it are derived our notions on character of God, on the great moral Governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions. From no source has the author drawn more conspicuously than from the sacred Scriptures. From all these extracts from the Bible I make no apology.’
Of the first 108 universities founded in America , 106 were distinctly Christian, including the first.
HarvardUniversity, chartered in 1636. In the original Harvard Student Handbook rule number 1 was that students seeking entrance must know Latin and Greek so that they could study the scriptures:
‘Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life, John 17:3; and therefore to lay Jesus Christ as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. And seeing the Lord only giveth wisdom, let everyone seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek it of him (Proverbs 2:3).’
For over 100 years, more than 50% of all Harvard graduates were pastors!
It is clear from history that the Bible and the Christian faith, were foundational in our educational and judicial system. However in 1947, there was a radical change of direction in the Supreme Court.
“In our next and final part you will see the change that has brought misery to the USA by turning from Our God”
