The Mayflower Compact

 
 

In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by Virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General Good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.

 

Patrick Henry spoke his famous “Give me liberty or give me death” speech in 1775. In 1776 he wrote: “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faith have been afforded freedom of worship here.”

 

President John Adams wrote on July 4, 1821: “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.”

 

Regarding religion, the First Amendment was intended to accomplish three purposes.
 
  1. First, it was intended to prevent the establishment of a national church or religion, or the giving of any religious sect or denomination a preferred status.
  2. Second, it was designed to safeguard the right of freedom of conscience in religious beliefs against invasion solely by the national Government.
3.Third, it was so constructed in order to allow the States, unimpeded, to deal with religious establishments and aid to religious institutions as they saw fit.”
 
 
  1. We have changed morality. Psalm 33:12

 

  • What needs to be changed? 1 Peter 4:17
You and I need to come back –Hosea 6:1-2
 
  1. He will heal us
  2. Quickly in two days
  3. He will use us
