Darwyn Hassert's work clearly demonstrates that the Founding Fathers used the Bible
as a political textbook to create the greatest country in the history of the world
"It is relevant…to note the prominence of biblical sources for American political thought, since it was highly influential in
our political tradition, and is not always given the attention it deserves."
“The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil
government with the principles of Christianity.”
John Quincy Adams
“To the Pulpit, the PURITAN PULPIT, we owe the moral force which won our independence.”
John Wingate Thornton
“In those days politics were preached in the pulpits and men were led to action
on the side of freedom by faithful pastors.”
“[T]he religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and his apostles….and
to this we owe our free constitutions of government.”
“Political freedom, as the Western world has known it, is only a political reading of the Bible.
Religion and freedom are indivisible.”
“…that while our rights are Biblically-given, they are politically protected.”
Patriotism from an American Pulpit
The study of American history reveals that the Founding Fathers took the Bible as a political textbook and founded our Constitutional Republic. The result is that America became the greatest country in world history. The thirteen chapters in “Patriotism from an American Pulpit” reveal some of the rich legacy that the Founding Fathers gave to us and are taken from patriotic sermons that the author preached as a pastor.
A Message From Darwyn Hassert
The Colonial clergy were instrumental in laying the Biblical and intellectual basis for our War for Independence.
Today America desperately needs men in the pulpits of our churches to again preach sermons on civil liberty so all Americans can enjoy the blessings that come from civil and religious liberty.
American pastors need to understand our history to help perpetuate our liberties and freedoms, so that we can continue to serve Christ without governmental hindrances. The Colonial pastors had a profound influence on our War for Independence, because they preached liberty and freedom from their pulpits. The chapters in this book are the modern day equivalent of the sermons of Colonial days.
