The first Thanksgiving.

With another Thanksgiving upon us, it’s good to consider what the Pilgrims endured and how they thanked God through it all. I just finished reading a phenomenal book on the group of dissident Christians who founded Plymouth in 1620.

One Comment to “The Pilgrims Gave Thanks — Despite Many Difficulties”

  1. M.K says:

    The atheist enjoy the fruits our country and bash the one that made it all possible Jesus Christ.

    This great country of ours the United States of America was founded by Christians. If Christ had not come there would be no United States of America. That is a fact not an opinion.
    The Pilgrims came to this country to advance the kingdom of God. The New England Charter signed by King James confirms this goal: …”to advance the enlargement of Christian religion to the glory of God Almighty.”
    When all the colonies had been established, they got together for the first time in 1643 and wrote these words: “whereas we all came into these parts of America with one and the same aim, namely, to advance the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ”.

    Thomas Jefferson said, “…These liberties are a gift of God”. John Adams said, “The height of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity”. Benjamin
    Franklin said, “…the longer I live the more convinced I become that God governs in the affairs of men…and have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or have we imagined we no longer need His assistance”.
    George Washington said, that religion and morality are the “twin pillars upon which government rests, and “let not that man claim the title of Patriot who labors to undermine those pillars” (of religion and morality). Such a person is no patriot. He is no friend of this nation. He opposes everything this country was founded upon.

    On July 9, 1774, As the Colonies was seeking God’s will as to whether they should break ties with England. George Washington made this entry in his diary: “Went to church and fasted all day”.

    On July 9, 1776, General George Washington issued the general order to his troops stating: “The general hopes and trust that every officer and man will endeavor so to live, and act, as becoming a Christian Soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of this country.” Washington received no pay for serving in the American Army.

    Washington had two black men with him one on each side of the boat when he cross the Delaware they fought with him during the revolution. About 10 to 15 percent that served with Washington in the revolution were black.

    Research has determined that of the fifty-five men who met in Philadelphia in the Constitutional Convention to write the Constitution, fifty of them unquestionably were Christian and possibly fifty-two.

    At that time, ninety-eight percent of Americans were Protestant Christians; 1.8 percent were Catholic Christians; two tenths of one percent, were Jewish. Therefore 99.8 percent of the people in America in 1776 claimed to be Christian.

    “Our laws and institutions must necessary be based upon the teaching of the redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; our civilization and institutions are emphatically Christian”. (U.S. Supreme Court in the Trinity decision 1892)

    All fifty of our states have reference to God in their Constitutions.

    Let us thank God for sending His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins and let us thank him for this great country of ours the United States of America.

    W.W. II Vet.
