Bible Verse of the Day: 04/29/2018

The Bible speaks to the common man who seeks freedom and liberty. The average man made up the Continental Army of the Revolutionary War. It was your average farmer, blacksmith, merchant, trader, surveyor, husband, and son. These average Americans were not average at all however. They were fighters given the spirit of Jesus Christ. They worked hard all week and rested on Sunday, while seeking God’s Word, and his only son Jesus Christ. These Christians were given free will to worship any God of their choosing because of the first amendment and our freedom of religion, laid down from our Founding Fathers. No matter the denominations, our true brotherhood as Americans is our Christian heritage, which needs to be reignited more than ever today.

As Washington commanded his army, he instilled the Christian faith in his leadership.

Washington wrote:

“The Hon. Continental Congress having been pleased to allow a Chaplain to each Regiment, with the pay of Thirty-three Dollars and one third pr month—The Colonels or commanding officers of each regiment are directed to procure Chaplains accordingly; persons of good Characters and exemplary lives—To see that all inferior officers and soldiers pay them a suitable respect and attend carefully upon religious exercises. The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger—The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country.” [1]
