Have you ever wondered how some authors can claim that the founding fathers of America were Christians while other authors claim that those very same founders were atheists, deists or even theistic rationalists? In this artfully written volume, Christian apologist Bill Fortenberry examines several of the quotes from our founding fathers that are frequently used to argue against the Christian heritage of America. In doing so, Mr. Fortenberry opens up to us a treasury of facts about our nation's founding that have been hidden by modern scholarship. Did you know that Benjamin Franklin only experimented with deism as a teenager and that he soon rejected it entirely? Did you know that at the age of twenty-nine he wrote three bold defenses of his Christian faith? Did you know that John Adams called the French Enlightenment thinkers cowards and atheists who were destitute of common sense? Did you know that he frequently referred to Jesus Christ as his Savior? Did you know that George Washington recorded a prayer expressing his acceptance of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for his sins? Did you know that he left the Masonic Lodge as a young man, that he denied being a member of any lodge during the founding era of our nation and that he referred to masonry as being mere child's play? With abundant references to the original writings of the founding era, Mr. Fortenberry provides American Christians with an invaluable defense of our nation’s Christian heritage. Topics covered in Hidden Facts of the Founding Era include: - A detailed explanation of the importance of studying the founding fathers. - A chapter on the forgotten founder, Charles Thomson - An expose of the founding fathers’ contempt for the writings of Thomas Paine - A study of the beliefs of Thomas Jefferson - A never before published analysis of Benjamin Franklin’s conversion to Christianity - Documented proof of George Washington’s prayer at Valley Forge - The most complete analysis of the Treaty of Tripoli ever written - A list of forty-nine correlations between the Bible and the Constitution - And much, much more…

Jesus eradicates the charge that he was an enemy of the Christian faith. Yes, he was wrong in his beliefs, but destruction of the Christian faith was never his intent. In a letter to Samuel Adams, Mr. Jefferson wrote: “"Opinion and the just maintenance of it shall never be a crime in my view,"[55] and in a letter to Dr. Rush, Mr. Jefferson was even more candid when he wrote: "And in confiding it to you, I know it will not be exposed to the malignant perversions of those who make every word

church’s favor. This case is not an isolated incident. There have been countless others throughout the course of our nation’s history that have hinged entirely upon the original intent of the legislature. For example, the 2011 case of Mack v. Carmack heard by the Supreme Court of Alabama examined the intent of the legislature in order to rule that Carmack could be sued for causing the wrongful death of an unborn child even though the wrongful death statute in that state did not explicitly

an individual whose name may possibly never have reached you; but an accidental circumstance has given me the extreme pleasure of introducing myself to your notice. In a conversation with the Reverend Doctor Berrian, a few days since, he informed me that he had lately paid a visit to Mount Vernon, and that Mrs. Washington had expressed a wish to have a doubt removed from her mind, which had long oppressed her, as to the certainty of the General's having attended the communion while residing in

The said two documents are in the Philadelphia newspapers of the time.”[122] It may be supposed that no other rumor about our first President could be so decisively refuted as this one, but in this case, the refutation has come from just one side of parties involved. The rumors surrounding Mr. Washington’s involvement in the Masonic Lodge, however, have been refuted by individual witnesses, by the Masons themselves and by the direct
