On July 4th, America celebrates its independence and its core principle of religious freedom. But the birth of religious liberty was a long and difficult struggle. On Beliefnet they have made available the Founding Faith Archive, where you can find a collection of documents and personal letters from the Founding Fathers about their religious lives and religious liberty. It is a fantastic walk through history and a reminder of the Christian principles our nation was founded on.
There is also a quiz about the Founding Fathers of our country. Check out: Faith of Our Founding Fathers
This quiz asks some great questions such as:
- The phrase "separation of church and state" state appears in:
- Which group supported separation of church and state most?
- Which Founding Father attended church but refused to take communion?
May our heart remember with thankfulness the freedom and liberty our country is based on.
