The Stones Cry Out!

In our public schools today students are being taught revisionist history, meaning they’re not being taught the truth about history. Rather, if history is taught at all, it’s a revised history meant to fit a liberal political narrative. And those revisions do not correctly portray our country’s founding fathers’ beliefs, why they founded the United States, etc.

Ask a public high school student today to tell you about the people and events surrounding our Declaration of Independence. If you get more than a blank stare (they don’t teach a lot of history in school today), students will most likely tell you that rich capitalistic white people stole the land from the Indians.

But fortunately the truth is easy to find. In 1492 Christopher Columbus bravely crossed the unknown Atlantic Ocean for the express purpose to bring the gospel to the unreached(1).

In 1620, those who crossed on the Mayflower fled religious persecution, wishing instead to worship a personal God, not a state-run God(2).

In fact, most of the original colonies and states along the eastern coast of North America specifically mentioned God and/or Jesus Christ in their incorporating documents.(3)

The founding fathers, and those who followed in our nation’s leadership for decades, were so engrossed in their Biblical beliefs that they left a trail of writings and monument inscriptions carved in stone. The stones cry out today against the lies being taught in our public schools and colleges.

For instance, did you know that the 10 Commandments are pictured above the eastern entrance to the Supreme Court building? The inscription reads: “JUSTICE - THE GUARDIAN OF LIBERTY.” And above that inscription, carved in stone and prominently located front and center of the world's most famous law givers, is Moses holding the two tablets with the 10 Commandments. (Pictured below)

Even the doors of the Supreme Court have the two tablets with God’s law engraved on them.

Inside the Lincoln Memorial are numerous phrases that acknowledge God and citations of Bible verses. One quote states, “That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—that government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth.” Other quotes include Matthew 18:7, Psalms 19:9 and Isaiah 40:4-5.

On the apex of the Washington Monument are the Latin words “Laus Deo,” which mean “Praise be to God.”

In the White House, over the mantel in the state dining room is a quote from John Adams, “I pray Heaven to bestow the best blessings on this house and all that shall hereafter inhabit it.”

Inside the Jefferson Memorial are numerous Biblial references including: “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.”

The Jefferson Memorial (pictured above) also quotes the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights. That among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

Patrick Henry (March 23,1775)
"We shall not fight ALONE. God presides over the destinies of nations...The battle is not to the strong alone. Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! Give me liberty or give me death!"

Religious artwork is found all around Washington DC, including in the Capitol Rotunda. There the prayer service of Christopher Columbus is prominently displayed, along with the Baptism of Pocahontas and the Pilgrims having a Bible study.

In the Library of Congress, The Giant Bible of Mainz and The Gutenberg Bible are on prominent permanent display. As is a bronze statue of Moses. And on the walls are Bible verses, including:

 “The light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not.” John 1:5
   “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, get wisdom and with all thy getting, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7
   “What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.” Micah 6:8
   “The heavens declare the Glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork.” Psalm 19:1
In the Cox Corridor of the Capitol the words “America! God shed His grace on thee” are inscribed. And at the east Senate Entrance the words “Annuit Coeptis” — Latin for “God has favored our undertakings” — is there for all to see.

Recently, Hobby Lobby’s owner Steve Green put up hundreds of millions of dollars to finance the Museum of the Bible in Washington DC (pictured below). It’s located near the National Mall, only three blocks from the Capitol. The museum has hundreds of ancient Biblical artifacts and history exhibits.
