“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” – John Adams (June 28, 1813)
Every year in February, Calvary Murrieta takes their students on a historical tour of the East Coast. Locations include Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, Washington DC, Gettysburg, Amish country, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, and so much more! With a focus on our nation’s Christian heritage and foundation, our travelers are exposed to our history that has been lost and forgotten in today’s historical texts. Talk about change! According to many state standards, studying the foundation of our country is not important. To those revisionists, I say, “shame on you!”
Romans 15:4 states, “For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.”
There is a biblical mandate to study the things of the past, so that we may learn from those that have come before. Thomas Jefferson was quoted as saying, “History, by apprizing them [students] of the past, will enable them to judge the future.” And Daniel Webster said, “History is God’s providence in human affairs.” Far be it from me to place my faith in some historian whose opinion about what may have happened in history, from his perspective. I would rather look to those who lived it, experienced it, fought for it, and wrote it. That is the history of the United States of America that I want to know.
God bless you and may God continue to bless America!
