If you are like most people, once you have constructed an object, you toss the instruction manual. (That is if you even used it in the first place.) The pamphlet, or sometimes book, is deposited in the trash along with boxes, wrapping material, and those parts that you never figured out quite where they go. Yet, why is it we, at times, wish the manual was still available when the object breaks down or we need a part to fix it and do not know the number or even what it is called? Now this situation can be remedied by contacting the manufacturer or just purchasing a replacement object. The latter is usually the case in our "throw away" society. However, what if this object is not some small appliance, but instead a large corporation that had been assembled? Or, what about a Country? Here, in America, our country was assembled to provide peace, protection and liberty. Our manuals to provide these instructions were and are, The Declaration of Independence and The United States Constitution. The Declaration presents who we are as a people and our morals and values that we esteem. The Constitution provides the method of government to protect those liberties and morals. But what Instruction Manual was used to assemble these great documents? Always a good idea, is to consult those who produced them. Noah Webster, who knew most of the Founders said this, "The moral principles and precepts found in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws". Roger Sherman, signer of The Declaration, Constitution and the Framer of the Bill of Rights was noted to do the following, “The volume which he consulted more than any other was the Bible. It was his custom, at the commencement of every session of Congress, to purchase a copy of the Scriptures, to peruse it daily, and to present it to one of his children on his return.” Benjamin Rush, considered by the other Founders to be in the top three Founders, along with Washington and Franklin stated, "The great enemy of the salvation of man, in my opinion, never invented a more effective means of limiting Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind that it was improper to read the Bible at schools" Patrick Henry avowed, "The Bible… is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed" John Adams spoke of his reverence for the Bible, "Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. . . . What a Eutopia – what a Paradise would this region be!" At the Constitutional Convention, one third of all quotes contained Biblical sources. Another one third contains quotes from Christian philosophers such as Locke, Montesquieu, and Blackstone. "The great, vital, and conservative element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and the divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ." so said the United States Congress in 1854. So the Bible was the instruction manual, used by the Founders, to build this Nation. Unfortunately it has been discarded in favor of Secular Progressive Humanism. We have paid an enormous price for this mistake as we daily surrender our freedoms. But on the fortunate side, we know where to recover our Instruction Manual, all we have to do is open and apply IT!
