The Christian Roots Of US Government - Author Darwyn Hassert Releases New Christian Book, 'Patriotism From An America Pulpit'

Hassert's work clearly demonstrates that the Founding Fathers used the Bible as a political textbook to create the greatest country in the history of the world

In the eyes of Darwyn Hassert, a study of American history reveals that the Founding Fathers took the Bible as a political textbook and founded our Constitutional Republic. The result is that America became the greatest country in world history. The thirteen chapters in his latest Christian book, “Patriotism from an American Pulpit”, reveal some of the rich legacy that the Founding Fathers gave to us and are taken from patriotic sermons that the author preached as a pastor.

"The Colonial clergy were instrumental in laying the Biblical and intellectual basis for our War for Independence," Hassert stated.  “Today America desperately needs men in the pulpits of our churches to again preach sermons on civil liberty so all Americans can enjoy the blessings that come from civil and religious liberty."

"American pastors need to understand our history to help perpetuate our liberties and freedoms, so that we can continue to serve Christ without governmental hindrances. The Colonial pastors had a profound influence on our War for Independence, because they preached liberty and freedom from their pulpits. The chapters in this book are the modern day equivalent of the sermons of Colonial days."

"During my research, I discovered that our Founding Fathers took the Bible as a political textbook and used its principles to found the greatest country in the history of the world. This book will present irrefutable evidence that America was founded upon these Biblical principles that can be preached from the pulpits of America without reference to any political party or politician.”

As further proof, Hassert offers quotes from both historians and the Founding Fathers:

"It is relevant…to note the prominence of biblical sources for American political thought, since it was highly influential in our political tradition, and is not always given the attention it deserves." - (Lutz, 1980)

“The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.” - John Quincy Adams

“To the Pulpit, the PURITAN PULPIT, we owe the moral force which won our independence.” - John Wingate Thornton

“In those days politics were preached in the pulpits and men were led to action on the side of freedom by faithful pastors.” - Benjamin Lossing

“[T]he religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and his apostles….and to this we owe our free constitutions of government.” - Noah Webster

"The reason for this book," Hassert concluded, "is that many Americans, and especially Christians, know so little of our history. They do not know why we are a Constitutional Republic and how we came into existence as a nation. I believe this book will help many Americans understand what it means to be called an American.”
