Often when the subject of religion and the American Revolution is written about or discussed, people fall into one of two camps. The first proclaims that America was founded as a Christian nation based upon the Bible and its teachings. Meanwhile, the other declares that America was created as a completely secular country and that Christianity, the Bible, God, and Jesus had absolutely nothing to do with it. In "Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God: The Role of Christianity in the American Revolution," Daniel S. Stackhouse, Jr. argues that Christianity played a significant role in the creation of the American republic. While acknowledging that the revolution birthed a nation with a secular Constitution and therefore a secular government, Stackhouse also presents evidence that Christian thought, preaching, and practice helped to create and sustain colonial resistance to British policies and lead to the founding of the United States of America. ..".a significant work that takes a solid position against those who argue outlying positions that America was either a wholly secular creation, or that America was always governed by Christian precepts." - Amazon.com

The Genevan Reformation and the American Founding

Author: David W. Hall

Publisher: Lexington Books

Category: History

In this provocative study, David W. Hall argues that the American founders were more greatly influenced by Calvinism than contemporary scholars, and perhaps even the founders themselves, have understood. Calvinism's insistence on human rulers' tendency to err played a significant role in the founders' prescription of limited government and fed the distinctly American philosophy in which political freedom for citizens is held as the highest value. Hall's timely work countervails many scholars' doubt in the intellectual efficacy of religion by showing that religious teachings have led to such progressive ideals as American democracy and freedom.

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was "Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God." America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over. By the 21st century, we need a "Puritan Storm" to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is "God walking on earth." This booklet gives a primer on our founders' Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

Über Tyrannei

Zwanzig Lektionen für den Widerstand

Wir sind nicht klüger als die Menschen, die erlebt haben, wie überall in Europa die Demokratie unterging und Faschismus, Nationalsozialismus und Kommunismus kamen. Aber einen Vorteil haben wir. Wir können aus ihren Erfahrungen lernen. „Leiste keinen vorauseilenden Gehorsam.“ So lautet die erste von 20 Lektionen für den Widerstand, mit denen Timothy Snyder die Bürger der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika vorbereitet auf das, was gestern noch unvorstellbar zu sein schien: einen Präsidenten, der das Gesicht der Demokratie verstümmelt und eine rechtsradikale Tyrannei errichtet. Doch nicht nur in den USA sind Populismus und autoritäres Führertum auf dem Vormarsch. Auch in Europa rückt die Gefahr von rechts immer näher – als ob es das 20. Jahrhundert und seine blutigen Lehren niemals gegeben hätte. Snyders historische Lektionen, die international Aufsehen erregt haben, sind ein Leitfaden für alle, die jetzt handeln wollen - und nicht erst, wenn es zu spät ist. Lektion 8: „Setze ein Zeichen.“ Dieses Buch tut es. Tun Sie es auch.

Every concerned citizen will enjoy and be very encouraged by the good and accurate historical records of the United States. Lies have been infiltrated so vastly and so deeply in to society of the United States. Even the educational institutions have become deceived and warped, so that the students are then receiving passed-down versions that are, as has been told, - lies. Some are deceived innocently, some willingly, some know it and want it. Many are just so busy with all the cares of life that they passively accept. Is it not important to us? A false "peace" has set in, and yet it is not peace as we are so alertly observing. To an awakened mind, peace should be what everybody wants. Strife or disagreement is a form of anti-peace in the interior spiritual realm. Values of the heart must be addressed as to whether they are proper values, and those values are then displayed by posts of the government. Every citizen needs to know what the true historical experience and record is, what governmental structure was established in the United States, what it is all about, and how it really is and operates. As we are all interested in the spiritual matters of life, a very real and vibrant experience awaits us. With all these wonderful opportunities and serious concerns for righteousness, for enhancing others, unselfish love for others. should we not in mercy, patience, kindness, humility, and love try to establish a good country and citizenry for all This is a very different and right correct account of the real US Government, and its establishment, and its history.

Martin Delany, Frederick Douglass, and the Politics of Representative Identity

Author: Robert S. Levine

Publisher: Univ of North Carolina Press

ISBN: 9780807862919

Category: Social Science

Page: 328

View: 9496

The differences between Frederick Douglass and Martin Delany have historically been reduced to a simple binary pronouncement: assimilationist versus separatist. Now Robert S. Levine restores the relationship of these two important nineteenth-century African American writers to its original complexity. He explores their debates over issues like abolitionism, emigration, and nationalism, illuminating each man's influence on the other's political vision. He also examines Delany and Douglass's debates in relation to their own writings and to the work of Harriet Beecher Stowe. Though each saw himself as the single best representative of his race, Douglass has been accorded that role by history--while Delany, according to Levine, has suffered a fate typical of the black separatist: marginalization. In restoring Delany to his place in literary and cultural history, Levine makes possible a fuller understanding of the politics of antebellum African American leadership.

Firebrand of Liberty: The Story of Two Black Regiments That Changed the Course of the Civil War

Author: Stephen V. Ash

Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company

ISBN: 9780393069907

Category: History

Page: 304

View: 1275

A nearly forgotten Civil War episode is restored to history in this masterful account. In March 1863, nine hundred black Union soldiers, led by white officers, invaded Florida and seized the town of Jacksonville. They were among the first African American troops in the Northern army, and their expedition into enemy territory was like no other in the Civil War. It was intended as an assault on slavery by which thousands would be freed. At the center of the story is prominent abolitionist Colonel Thomas Wentworth Higginson, who led one of the regiments. After waging battle for three weeks, Higginson and his men were mysteriously ordered to withdraw, their mission a seeming failure. Yet their successes in resisting the Confederates and collaborating with white Union forces persuaded President Abraham Lincoln to begin full-scale recruitment of black troops, a momentous decision that helped turned the tide of the war. Using long-neglected primary sources, historian Stephen V. Ash’s stirring narrative re-creates this event with insight, vivid characterizations, and a keen sense of drama.

The Story of the U. S. Military Chaplaincy from the Revolution Through the Civil War

Author: William E. Dickens, Jr.

Publisher: Universal-Publishers

ISBN: 9781581120493

Category: History

Page: 196

View: 9014

This book argues that the standardization of the American military chaplaincy occurred during the Civil War. It shows that the chaplains of the North and South provided the model on which the modern chaplaincy is based. This model is seen in both the regulations which were established during this war and the actual ministry of the chaplains with the men of their assigned units. To accomplish this task, the book traces the history of the military chaplaincy from the American Revolution through the American Civil War. This analysis relies heavily on official documents and reports as well as personal accounts, letters, and diaries. It also incorporates appropriate secondary source material.

Eichmann in Jerusalem

Ein Bericht von der Banalität des Bösen

Der ehemalige SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann gilt als einer der Hauptverantwortlichen für die »Endlösung« der Juden in Europa. Der Prozess gegen ihn fand 1961 in Jerusalem statt. Hannah Arendts Prozessbericht wurde von ihr 1964 als Buch publiziert und brachte eine Lawine ins Rollen: Es stieß bei seinem Erscheinen auf heftige Ablehnung in Israel, Deutschland und in den USA– und wurde zu einem Klassiker wie kaum ein anderes vergleichbares Werk zur Zeitgeschichte und ihrer Deutung.
