- God governs the world;
- God 'inclined the hearts' of the representatives to approve the Articles of Confederation;
- God authorized the representatives of the people of the United States to approve and ratify the Articles of Confederation;
- The representatives of the American people proposed this agreement for ratification by the states in the year 1778, that year referenced directly as 'in the year of our Lord,' indicating that Jesus Christ is the Lord over the nation about which this agreement was drawn, approved, and subsequently ratified.
- Because God governs the World, God governs all nations of the World, including the United States of America. Therefore, the American people submit to the authority of God. America is one nation under God;
- God is no deist god, no other god except God of the Bible including the New Testament, referencing the date of the agreement to the birth of Jesus Christ.
- Because in this document, the 'Great Governor of the World' is God of the Bible including the New Testament, the representatives of the people directly imply to be influenced by the Holy Spirit, which 'inclined their hearts' to approve and ratify the agreement. That conclusion is directly implied because, according to the scriptures, the Holy Spirit is sent to to indwell in the hearts of believers in Jesus Christ. That Spirit works to 'incline the heart' of the believer to fulfill God's will on earth. Therefore the American people, via their representatives, are believers in Jesus Christ, endeavoring to fulfill God's will on earth by their actions approving and ratifying this agreement.
- America is a Christian nation, one that submits to Jesus Christ, the Great Governor of the World, Who according to the scriptures owns all authority on earth.
- And stated as its own conclusion, as a Christian nation, America's primary purpose is to fulfill God's will on earth.
But for now we have one final step to take to finish our proof of sorts, that America is truly a Christian Nation, as I have defined that term, and that is to look directly at the Constitution and determine if by its terms, it either follows through, citing itself as a the Supreme Law for a Christian nation, or whether it abandons that truth, or even disputes that truth.
To make that determination, we will start in the Preamble, which begins with the following familiar terms
We the People of the United States...do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
The Constitution's Article VII certifies the previous conclusion, and declares it to be the Supreme Law of the Land, stating that the date the Constitution was proposed for ratification, which proposal could only have been authorized under the Articles of Confederation, occurred 'in the 12th year of the independence of the United States of America.'
But Article VII also offers us one more item to consider, and that is that the 12th year of the independence of the United States of America, was also
the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven
That date stamp directly references the birth of Jesus Christ and therefore declares and certifies that Jesus Christ is Lord. And that statement therefore certifies that Lord over 'We the People of the United States,' is also none other than Jesus Christ. And for this reason, we can now ultimately conclude, without reservation, that the United States of America is a Christian Nation, as defined as a nation which draws its authority from God of the Bible including the New Testament, which scriptures require that America's authority flows directly from Jesus Christ, Who according to those scriptures owns all authority in Heaven and earth. What else need we say? It is finished, the proof.
But now that we have fully established that America is A Christian nation under the terms we have defined, in the next installment we will begin to understand just exactly what that really means. So stand by and come back.
All that has been written heretofore is prologue...
