Now more than ever the

people are responsible

for the character of their

Congress. If that body be

ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and

corruption. If it be intelligent,

brave, and pure, it is because

the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. . . .

He was an elder in his local church. When Garfield relinquished his role as elder, it is said that he stated,

“I resign the highest office in the land to become president of the United States.”

Hiram, Feb. 16th 1858

Dear Bro. Wallace,

We have just closed our meeting with happy results. There were 34 addition[s]. 31 by immersion. I was sorry I could not be in Newburgh last Sunday, but it seemed to be my duty to stay here. Bro Dave Shu[?] tells me that the Brethren want me to hold a meeting in vacation. I have spoken 19 discourses in our meeting here - and this with all our work in the school has worn me down very much. I would not think of holding a meeting alone. And don't know as I ought to help hold one. I will be in your place sometime next week and talk with you in reference to the matter of your letter. Which would have been answered sooner but for the meeting. I shall hope to visit Bedford also. Love to your family & believe me your brother,

J. A. Garfield

[I]f the next centennial does not find us a great nation . . . it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.

“Christian voting”

  • A. There are three types of Christian voters in polling
  • Christian voters – largest group; this is the group that simply self-identifies as (i.e., calls themselves) Christians.
  • 2. Born-again voters – a Christian voter who says he has had a life-changing experience with Jesus Christ; a smaller group than that of Christian voters.
  • 3. Evangelical voters – a born-again voter who also believes the Bible is important and who attends church, prays, and reads the Bible at least
  • once a week. This group of Christians
  • take their faith most seriously.

Prov. 29:2

“When the

righteous

increase,

the people

rejoice,

but when

the wicked

man rules,

people

groan.”

Abraham Lincoln

  • Destroy Her Faith in God (Christianity).
  • Destroy Biblical marriage/divorce.
  • Destroy the Biblical role of gov’t.

Judg 2:10-11

10 After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel.

11 Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals.

Thomas Paine on "The Study of God" Delivered in Paris on January 16, 1797, in a Discourse to the Society of Theophilanthropists

It has been the error of the schools to teach astronomy, and all the other sciences and subjects of natural philosophy, as accomplishments only; whereas they should be taught theologically, or with reference to the Being who is the author of them: for all the principles of science are of Divine origin. Man cannot make, or invent, or contrive principles. He can only discover them; and he ought to look through the discovery to the Author.

slide13

When we examine an extraordinary piece of machinery, an astonishing pile of architecture, a well executed statue or a highly finished painting where life and action are imitated, and habit only prevents our mistaking a surface of light and shade for cubical solidity, our ideas are naturally led to think of the extensive genius and talents of the artist. When we study the elements of geometry, we think of Euclid. When we speak of gravitation, we think of Newton. How then is it, that when we study the works of God in the creation, we stop short, and do not think of God? It is from the error of the schools in having taught those subjects as accomplishments only, and thereby separated the study of them form the Being who is the author of them. . . .

slide14

The evil that has resulted from the error of the schools in teaching natural philosophy as an accomplishment only has been that of generating in the pupils a species of atheism. Instead of looking through the works of the creation to the Creator himself, they stop short, and employ the knowledge they acquire to create doubts of His existence. They labor with studied ingenuity to ascribe everything they behold to innate properties of matter; and jump over all the rest, by saying that matter is eternal.

Everson vs Board of Education

Court

“The First Amendment has erected a wall between church and state. That wall must be kept high and impregnable. We could not approve the slightest breach.”

[Majority opinion in Emerson v. Board of Education, 330 U.S. 1 (1947), last words]

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

“…the ’60s is when the attacks spilled out into America’s streets,

resulting in unprecedented cultural

chaos by decade’s end.

One of the first times I remember feeling

the foundations of America tremble was

in 1964 during my nineth-grade civics

class. A girl – I don’t remember her

name, but I think she was from TN

and she had a very thick southern ac-

cent – answered a question from the

teacher by mentioning something about

God.

‘How do you know there is a God?’

the teacher shot back.

It was an earth tremor – just a faint quiver really, a

precursor to the tidal waves to come a few years

later – a smiling, casual, off-handed swipe at the

slide19

world as we knew it.

How did the little southern girl know

there was a God? Clearly taken aback,

she answered the teacher earnestly,

incredulously, her voice breaking: “Because….there is!” She had, quiet

naturally, offered up the best answer

anyone could possibly give.

The teacher had questioned the un-

questionable, injecting doubt into a

room of impressionable young boys

and girls. It was one of those moments

you remember forty years later because

it created a spark, a momentary

contact with another dimension – that

alien dimension of cynicism and disbelief.”

p. 87

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness….”

“…can the liberties of a

nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God.”

(“Notes on the State of

Virginia, 1782)

Thomas Jefferson

3rd pres. of US

Principle author of

Declaration of Independence

slide21

“When in the course of human events it

becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

LAW OF THE LANDIs Declaration of Independence unconstitutional?School district sued for censoring founding documents, state constitutions

In a season typified by lawsuits against manger scenes, crosses and even the words "Merry Christmas," a California case is taking the "separation of church and state" one step further – dealing with whether it's unconstitutional to read the Declaration of Independence in public school.

Attorneys for the Alliance Defense Fund filed suit Monday against the Cupertino Union School District for prohibiting a teacher from providing supplemental handouts to students about American history because the historical documents contain some references to God and religion.
