In God is our Trust
In God we Trust
It seems that America had forgotten Who made it possible for America to be America. We have forgotten Who gave us the Constitution. We have forgotten Who preserved us during the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War and all the other wars. Why have we forgotten God and denied is Almighty Power? Let me teach all Americans or all people who call themselves as such but are traitors to all that America believes in.
Our National Anthem
The year is 1814, it is during the War of 1812. England as come over and invaded us and declared war on us. Francis Scott Key was, with the help of John Stuart Skinner, trying to negotiate the release of Dr. William Beans. These three men were allowed to return to their own ship but the British held them their so they could not help Fort McHenry know the strengths of the British. So Key had to watch the bombardment of the fort from sea. During this fight Key was so impressed upon that he wrote the "The Star Spangled Banner". And in the last Stanza of it he wrote these words "…And this be our motto: "in God is our trust!"
Our National Motto
The year is 1956, the Cold War is going on. The government is trying to find ways to defend against communism. On July 30, 1956 President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the bill that gave us our National Motto. The government said this about our motto "In these days when imperialistic and materialistic Communism seeks to attack and destroy freedom, it is proper" to "remind all of us of this self-evident truth" that "as long as this country trusts in God, it will prevail."
The Pledge of Allegiance
The date, February 7, 1954, a Sunday, President Eisenhower is at attendance of the Sermon of one Reverend George MacPherson Docherty. This particular church is where President Lincoln worshipped. Rev. Docherty’s Sermon was about the Pledge of Allegiance and how "there was something missing in the pledge, and that which was missing was the characteristic and definitive factor in the American way of life." He spoke of how, without any reference to God, the pledge would apply to ANY nation. He drew his sermon from the Gettysburg Address "… That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government: of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." The next day a Bill was introduced to congress to add the words "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. On June 14, 1954 President Eisenhower passed the Bill.
In God is our Trust
I hope all y’all took notes, because this is the history behind the most wonderful and beautiful words "In God we Trust". These words are the spirit of America and the American way of life. It was God Who made it possible for America to be America. It was God Who gave us the constitution. It was God Who preserved us during times of war and peace. And now to all True Americans I challenge you to take a stand and say in the face of those who deny God and our great country: "We will not back down, we will not be pushed to believe contrary to our beliefs, we will let you destroy our country. We are going to take back our nation and our God and put them before the world to be a light for justice and peace. With God at our backs we will march forth a regain our nation and our right and privilege to say the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools. We will do all this because this is our nation’s motto and ours: in God is our Trust!"
