The second paragraph of the Declaration recognizes another aspect of the role and nature of God. It says: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are, Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” What were the Founding Fathers discussing by this statement?
Our founders embraced a set of Essential Biblical principles when laying down the foundation for our nation. The pulpits preached them and they were incorporated into our Declaration of Independence and into our Constitution. These were first laid down by William Penn in PA.
Our founders believed that our citizens had to know and be taught what the Bible said about 10 essential principles or we could never have nor keep a free nation built on self government.
