Our Founding Father's Believed God Was the Giver & Sustainer Of Our Freedom

Benjamin Franklin:  “I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth – that God governs in the affairs of men . . . and if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire cannot rise without His aid?”

Thomas Jefferson: “God who gave us life, gave us liberty… and 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?”
Abraham Lincoln, who gives us the way out of our decline! He said, “It is the duty of nations as well as of men to owe their dependence on the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow…yet, with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon.”
