 American Revolution

How many of you would have supported the founding fathers?

How many would have remained neutral?

How many would have fought for the British?

 Re: American Revolution

Curious because of the theology that the founding fathers held... and the foundations of the American Constitution... that our rights come from God... not from government.

Amen.

P.S. I lost my rights at the cross, and this isn't my home.

I'm excited to see this question. I've been giving this a lot of thought recently. I don't know what I would have done. I don't know enough about the different circumstances people were in. I've been studying revolution and when it could be the right thing and when it is not. I haven't come to enough conclusions yet to try and give a solid answer here though, sorry.

I think they're right about that. I believe God established governmental rights because the public as a whole has needs that should be met and protected by a government. The public only has these needs because the individual people have them. The individual people have needs because God made them that way.

So the God-given needs of individuals are what create the need for government.

I'm reading John Locke's two treatises on government. I just started the first one.

Furthermore, I believe the epistemology of self-evident truths ("we hold these truths to be self-evident") is fundamental to true religion.

I lost my rights by sinning and got them back at the cross.

My son and I spent some time last night trying to do some research on this part of your topic. So far we have read about Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington. Both men have had much written and said about their faith from those who want to establish it and those who want to disprove it.

Its been an interesting history lesson at least:)

God Bless
