The Founders were collectively the most biblically astute political body ever assembled. They knew their Bibles far better than most preachers of today. They knew how God had founded the nation state of Israel. They knew that in God's political framework life was precious as it was created by God "in His image." They knew God founded Israel upon "the one true religion" which gave man that which he yearns for the most...liberty. Finally, they knew that God made ownership of property the central pillar of the economy of "the glorious land." Every family was given a parcel of land to have, hold and to retain in one's family all the generations. Even if by mismanagement or neglect, every 50 years the land would revert back to it's original owners in what the Bible calls the "year of jubilee." Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are central God given rights in the Declaration as they were to "the glorious land!"
Was America founded as a vehicle for the preaching of remission of sins? The case is strong!
