Noah Webster (1758 – 1843), was a lexicographer and a language reformer. He is often called the "Father of American Scholarship and Education". In his lifetime he was also a lawyer, schoolmaster, author, newspaper editor and an outspoken politician.

In 1807 Webster began compiling a fully comprehensive dictionary, An American Dictionary of the English Language; it took twenty-eight years to complete. To evaluate the etymology of words, Webster learned twenty-six languages, including Old English (Anglo-Saxon), Greek, Hebrew and Latin.
Webster completed his dictionary during his year abroad in 1825 in Paris, France, and at the University of Cambridge.


(Every civil government is based upon religion or a philosophy of life. A worldview is how does one perceive the world. What beliefs they hold that answer the basic questions in life. The does God exist, do we truly exist or what is reality, does objective truth exist, if so how can we know truth, does morality exist, are we soulish beings, does Heaven and Hell exist, which human beliefs best fit reality?

Education without religion obviously produces future secular generations. Most kids spend more time at educational institutions than a church. No surprise they walk away from the faith.

Three out of four Christian teens walk away from the church after they leave home. The reasons are debatable but mainly to the worship of self and the idol of sex or the pressures to fit in.

Noah Webster told us the Biblical worldview was the reason for the Nation's growth, prosperity, and most importantly liberty. A truly revolutionary move in the time of history of dictatorships, monarchs, and tyrants.

But a fair warning that if we continue to allow the propaganda education of our youth it would destroy success and freedom. A rising debt, pre civil war conditions, unborn being torn apart, speech being censored, businesses being sued for not bowing to LGBTQ groups, self defense rights are wanted illegal, political parties are publicly announcing that atheism better fits their party.

We was forewarned. History forewarned us. How oh how does every society fail to learn from the mistakes of the past until it is too late and the only way evil gets eradicated is by the blood of the innocent and those willing to finally stand.

The sociological studies and examination of civilization throughout history by observation shows the more secular the society becomes the worship of self collapses the nation from within if it was lucky enough to not get conquered from without.

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
-Abraham Lincoln

Rise and fall of Civilizations was observed by Alexander Fraser Tytler, a European historian published The Decline and Fall of the Athenian Republic. In his publication, Tytler reported that from his research he had determined the following:

From bondage to spiritual faith,
From spiritual faith to great courage,
From courage to liberty,
From liberty to abundance,
From abundance to selfishness,
From selfishness to complacency,
From complacency to apathy,
From apathy to dependency,
From dependency back again to bondage."

Nine steps until we repeat.

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." -Albert Einstein

Is life just one insanely belief that we can do better than our predecessors? But only to repeat as a broken record the woes of our own destruction?

The Israelites repeated this process over and over and over to evidently provide a historical example that even God's chosen nation would still be vulnerable to this historic truth. A generation fails to adequately prepare the next generation as self becomes most important.

If we fail to hold a worldview that accurately fits reality then complacency and apathy brings the collapse of society faster as the people wonder in the unawareness of the danger to blindly seeking self satisfaction and losing the love for others.

The average constitution lasts 21 years. Without a strong foundation they collapse. The war of the worldviews is after all the source of any war in history.

H. G. Wells once wrote in the War of the Worlds.
Be a man!... What good is religion if it collapses under calamity? Think of what earthquakes and floods, wars and volcanoes, have done before to men! Did you think that God had exempted [us]? He is not an insurance agent.​
H.G. Wells, The War of the Worlds

People of today are we any more special, wiser, or different to believe we won't repeat mankind's mistakes? Are we exempted of this sin if we fail to keep it under lock and key?

Take ahold of this truth and grip it with white knuckle intensity. Let it penetrate every chamber within the mind and what is thought becomes action before action is equated to a hopeless cause.

As Winston Churchill once brilliantly said,

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Stand now for whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Because the watchers have sounded the alarm only to fall on previous deaf ears. )

Interesting but i thought it was deism with the founding fathers, thats why so many cults come out of the US. Eg jehovahs witness, mormonism, scientology, christian science, propserity gospel, alcoholics anonymous...people are free to worship in anyway they like including worship of mammon cos its more God as they understand him. Its not God through Jesus Christ. Their constitution actually allows these kinds of cults to flourish. Eg scientology because people says its a religion, is exempt from taxation. People can believe what they want, and practice whatever religion even if its really silly.

If Jesus Christ was actually the foundation of america then it would be a totally different kind of country. The intereting thing is there are enough born again christians in america to have an influence.

America was actually founded as a republic. Those foundations are from romans if you look at washington DC its all arranged on Roman lines. It operates as a democracy which takes from Greek practices. Whereby the majority rules. Whats hapoening now is that the white majority feel threatened by the non white people becuase of their numbers meaning they arent in the majority anymore. That means they dont have mandate to rule because they can be voted out. This is why if you look at history, even when former slaves were free and supposedly had the right to vote, the white majority tried to prevent them from voting!

Now that is actually coming from a quite different foundation from one ruled by Jesus Christ.

We have two histories lol the 1970s and forward a lot of history has been revised from secularism or liberalism gaining control of education. If you take their word then everything was at most deism but mostly secular. Unfortunately all the original writings and biographies still exist for those who care to read them. Just like separation of church and state they say that was a founding document but the truth isnt even historically accurate if you read the original letter.

Of course a few of our founders wasn't what I would call modern Christian but out of 70 or more founders most was very religious if not more than we are today. But our secular counterparts will point to the few who was the least religious but I'm actuality they each was still very God centered and admitting Christianity was the best worldview. Ben Franklin was one of these few.

The mainline denominations was Christian. The cults came later. When you hear Christian nation that doesn't mean a theocracy but that the founders used the Judeo Christian religion as its foundation for everything. All our laws can be traced back to scripture. The Bible was the most referenced book during their delegations.

Republicanism first found its roots in scripture under Moses in the wilderness. But yes other than the Bible as a reference they did use governmental and law ideas from other sources like Rome, England, and studied atleast 6 other ancient Civilizations.

As explained also in my thread Thank God for denominations I explained how a theocracy was never God intended. How Republicanism and separation of powers was truly a Biblical concept.

Majority doesn't rule due to the electoral college and laws that protect equality and the minority. By population whites are still largely the majority as population so that is lie. What most people here are worried about is illegal immigration.

You find most of your voter frauds in the minority party. That is more in line with the critical race theory. Blame whites and everything will turn out alright.

Home schooling is becoming real popular for Christians in America due to the anti American, anti Christian, anti Jew, false history revisionism, false science bias, and groups like the LGBT are pushing their agenda on our kids at school.

Check out Wallbuilders.com or BlackRobeRegiment.com I only explained in very small detail but much of what you repeated is the same nonsense they try to promote over here. Unfortunately the original works or even older history books almost completely tell a different story. I felt betrayed when I first began to study it. But as we plan to homeschool our kids, I will be teaching them true history.
