Did George Washington Predict America’s Fall?

Western Journalism:

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity,” declared Washington, “Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens. … [R]eason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”

Do You Want To Know What the Constitution Says About Religion?

There is a lot of misunderstanding, and misinformation, regarding the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Founding Fathers, liberty, and Freedom of Religion. Hillsdale College has been offering online courses that explain the vision of the Founders, the vision of the Liberals and Progressives, and where we are today versus where we began.

Nice Links

I read a lot of news, and normally I just share the good stuff as I come across it. Over the past few days I got a little behind but found some articles that struck me as especially important and I thought I would dedicate a post to them. While none of these are thorough discussions on the topics they cover, they should get you thinking.

Christianity As Science-Starter

Amy Hall from Stand To Reason posted a series of articles this week entitled Christianity As Science-Starter. There are three, and they deal with Kepler, Galileo, and Newton. Her inspiration is a book called Saving Leonardo: A Call to Resist the Secular Assault on Mind, Morals, and Meaning, by Nancy Pearcey. In this series, she reminds us that science was started by God fearing Christians who believed that the universe, as created by God, follows a master plan that is predictable and discoverable. It is not the results of random chance.

While I can’t recommend the book–I haven’t read it–I can recommend the articles:

Looks like another book to add to my reading list.

Biblical Archaeology: Philip’s Tomb and Gobekli Tepe

I had heard the news that Philip the Apostle’s tomb had been found a few months ago, but I held off being excited because I know how those discoveries are often recanted later. As it turns out, it’s may not be the Apostle’s tomb, but Philip the Evangelist. Either way, it’s still an exciting find if true, because finding the tombs of people who are mentioned in Scripture still serve to provide more evidence for the reliability of Scripture.

More on Philip’s Tomb:

Another find that has been revealed over the last couple of weeks has been equally as interesting. It’s that of Gobekli Tepe. Gobekli Tepe is being heralded as the oldest “Temple” ever found, predating Stonehenge by some 6,000 years. If true, it would provide more evidence that religion has always been a part of mankind’s life, and not something invented later on as part of culture. Stand to Reason has posted a short article on this, along with an interview of Ben Witherington regarding the ramifications for secular understandings of religious history. I highly recommend you follow the link STR provides in the article called Philip’s Tomb and listen to the interview; it’s only about 18 minutes.
