ten mosesMost Christians know about the Ten Commandments, which are foundational to their beliefs. They’re one of the reasons it’s difficult to dispose of the Old Testament entirely due it’s plethora of heinous laws, commands and actions of Yahweh. Although many would find it challenging to recite them in their entirety, they often involve themselves in the defence of public displays of these fabled tablets, often depicted along with one of their greatest prophets, Moses.

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tablets of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them. 13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.”

Christian Love for the Founding Fathers

founding fathers

Many Christians continue to insist that the USA is a “Christian nation” and was established as one by the “founding fathers” (although most would have a problem naming even 5 of them without a quick internet search). While it’s true that the U.S. has the largest Christian population of any country, there are many misconceptions about the Dads of Democracy, including the fact the U.S. was founded as a Republic, not a Democracy. There are some foundational differences. 

Here’s a link to an excellent site that provides quotes from some of the Dads that may be surprising to those waving a flag with one hand and their Bible in the other.
