I truly do love this man. He was a very devout Christian and like myself in this day’s age, disliked immensely the clergy. I can only presume that the clergy, back then just like today, have fallen short of the Glory of God.
While Jefferson was Ambassador to France and John Adams was the Ambassador to England, they were of like mind that the scourge of Islam was not to be tolerated. Jefferson didn’t like the Satanic “religion” of Islam nor did he like the total ineptitude of the clergy. Our liberty in America was being challenged back then…just like it is today. In this day’s age, America is on the verge of collapsing and we are dying the death the Founders feared would happen, as Benjamin Franklin so readily reminded everyone, and when God is removed from a foundation that God Himself set up, the American Experiment will surely die.
The Christian religion, when divested of the rags in which they [the clergy] have enveloped it, and brought to the original purity and simplicity of its benevolent institutor, is a religion of all others most friendly to liberty, science, and the freest expansion of their human mind.
What a mouthful!
In part of Jefferson’s inaugural address,
I shall need, too, the favor of that Being in whose hands we are, who led our forefathers, as Israel of old, from their native land and planted them in a country flowing with all the necessities and comforts of life, who has covered our infancy with His Providence and our riper years with His wisdom and power, and to whose goodness I ask you to join with me in supplications that He will so enlighten the minds of your servants, guide their councils and prosper their measures, that whatever they do shall result in your good, and shall secure to you the peace, friendship, and approbation of all nations.
Didn’t the USA lead the world in all things at one time? Didn’t we? What happened to the USA? We threw God out of our schools, our education, our sciences, and especially in our politics. God save us all.
In my very short 58 years on this planet, the only President that spoke like Thomas Jefferson was Ronald Wilson Reagan. John Kennedy was the next one in line. The rest since Reagan? Not anywhere near what Reagan did, said and believed. The Bush I, Bush II, Clinton years and especially the FRAUD Obama will more than likely get banished in the hereafter after watching what they have done.
Removing God the Redeemer is tantamount to a life under the auspices of Satan…
God who gave us life gave us Liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.
AMEN to that! That portent from Jefferson above reflects today on the despicable things we see and hear today, in this “modern age.”
As for the unconstitutional diatribe we have been hearing for decades today about the separation between church and state, Thomas Jefferson put that to bed years ago. Where is his example today…besides no where?
Thomas Jefferson supported “religion” from the Presidency in all areas of life, especially if the people the government helped were Christians. He even spoke to the Kaskaskia Indian Tribe.
And whereas the greater part of the said tribe have been baptized and received into the Catholic Church, to which they are much attached, the US will give annually, for 7 years, $100 toward the support of a priest of that religion, who will engage to perform for said tribe the duties of his office, and also to instruct as many of their children as possible, in the sum of $300, to assist the said tribe in the erection of a church.
How many Presidents do that today? How many?
So much for the separation of church and state from a President of the USA.
Thomas Jefferson, in my book, was a prophet. Listen to this next quote from him. Jefferson taught us all not to do what is happening in America today…we have indulged in and have asked Satan to destroy this nation…from within.
When once a Republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring its lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil.
A new evil. Isn’t removing our liberties a new evil? Isn’t removing the Fourth Amendment from people that live in the Fourth Amendment ban “rule” a new evil? Isn’t deleting the Second Amendment a new evil? Aren’t the unconstitutional Entitlement “laws” new evils? Can we not crush the corrupters?
Thomas Jefferson attended church services at the capital building. How many have done that in recent years…besides no one?
The practice of morality being necessary for the well-being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral precepts of Jesus, and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.
Thomas Jefferson wrote the original Declaration of Independence and it is in that Declaration that we have the God-given RIGHT to change this government into whatever we so choose to do…and HOW to do it. Perhaps we need the American Revolution Part 2 to square things away…yes? No?
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
Haven’t we come to the last resort? Isn’t the UN trying to circumvent the Second Amendment? Hasn’t the DHS decided that if you live within 100 miles of any US international border that the Fourth Amendment no longer applies? Haven’t we TRIED to change things by elections? Aren’t the elections so corrupted that it makes no difference to anyone anymore? Do we just sit back and pray as MANY maroons have so stated through the years?
We have, at this very moment, a severe tyrannical form of government stationed in DC…a non State…and we are to sit back and just let things happen because we have no say? I think not, my fellow Patriots, the churches be damned.
Part of Jefferson’s inaugural address…
Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of Kings to govern them? Let history answer this question. Let us, then, with courage and confidence pursue our own federal and REPUBLICAN principles…
Enlightened by a benign religion, professed, indeed, and practiced in various forms, yet all of them inculcating honesty, truth, temperance, gratitude, and the love of man; acknowledging and adoring an overruling Providence, which by all its dispensations proves that it delights in the happiness of man here and his greater happiness hereafter. With all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and prosperous people?
Still one thing more, fellow citizens-a wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned….
You should understand what I deem the essential principles of our government…equal and exact justice to all men, of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political…the arraignment of all abuses at the bar of the public reason; freedom of religion; freedom of the press; and freedom of person under the protection of the Habeas Corpus and trial by jury impartially selected…
Besides Ronald Reagan, how many since Jefferson has even dared to say such things out loud? We shall see, shall we?
James Madison will be my next victim so stay tuned.
