Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States - Now a Searchable PDF

Published in 1864
This book gives proof of the Christian origins of the Constitution and the early American civil documents.

"I readily join with you that 'while just government protects all in their religious rights, true religion affords to government its surest support.'" Washington

"The highest glory of the American Revolution is this; it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity." John Quincy Adams

Statesman Daniel Webster (1782-1852) (footnote to letter to Edward Sprague Rand, May 15, 1850: “The religion of the New Testament, that religion which is founded on the teachings of Jesus Christ and his apostles, is as sure a guide to duty in politics as in any other concern of life.”

Notes on Virginia by Thomas Jefferson (searchable pdf)
This is a summary view of that religious slavery, under which a people have been willing to remain, who have lavished their lives and fortunes for the establishment of their civil freedom. The error seems not sufficiently eradicated, that the operations of the mind, as well as the acts of the body, are subject to the coercion of the laws. But our rulers can have authority over such natural rights only as we have submitted to them. The rights of conscience we never submitted, we could not submit. We are answerable for them to our God. The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

The Development of Religious Liberty in Connecticut by M. Louise Greene, PhD. (searchable pdf)
The Rev. Jedidiah Champion of Lifcchfield, an ardent Federalist, on the Sunday following the news of the election of Adams and Jefferson, prayed fervently for the president-elect, closing with the words, "0 Lord! wilt Thou bestow upon the Vice-President a double portion of Thy grace, _for Thou knowest he needs it._" This was mild, for Jefferson was considered by the New England clergy to be almost the equal of Napoleon, whom one of them named the "Scourge of

The Age of Reason by Thomas Paine
EVERY national church or religion has established itself by pretending some special mission from God, communicated to certain individuals. The Jews have their Moses; the Christians their Jesus Christ, their apostles and saints; and the Turks their Mahomet; as if the way to God was not open to every man alike.
Each of those churches shows certain books, which they call revelation, or the Word of God. The Jews say that their Word of God was given by God to Moses face to face; the Christians say, that their Word of God came by divine inspiration; and the Turks say, that their Word of God (the Koran) was brought by an angel from heaven. Each of those churches accuses the other of unbelief; and, for my own part, I disbelieve them all.

The God of Our Fathers By George Duffield 1861
"That no notice whatever should be taken of that God who planteth a nation, and plucketh it up at his pleasure, is an omission which no pretext whatever can palliate. Had such a momentous business been transacted by Mohammedans, they would have begun, "In the name of God" Even the savages, whom we despise, setting a better example, would have paid some homage to the Great Spirit. But from the Constitution of the United States, it is impossible to ascertain what God we worship ; or whether we own a God at all. Should the citizens of America be as irreligious as her Constitution, we will have reason to tremble, lest the Governor of the Universe, who will not be treated with indignity by a people, any more than by individuals, overturn, from its foundation, the fabric we have been rearing, and crush us to atoms in the wreck."

Christianity in the nineteenth century (1900) by George Lorimer
"Before he came, the college was in a most ungodly state. The college church was almost extinct. Most of the students were skeptical and rowdies were plenty. Wine and liquors were kept in many rooms ; intemperance, profanity, gambling, and licentiousness were common. . . That was the day of the infidelity of the Tom Paine school. Boys that dressed flax in the barn, as I used to, read Tom Paine and believed him ; I read him and fought him all the way. But most of the class before me were infidels and called each other Voltaire, Rousseau, d'Alembert, etc."

The Diary of William Bentley, D. D.: Pastor of the East Church, by William Bentley, Joseph Gilbert Waters, Alice 1905
"But what security is it to a government, that every public officer shall swear that he is a christian? For what will then be called christianity? One man will declare that the Xtian religion is only an illumination of natural religion, & that he is a christian; another Christian will assert that all men must be happy hereafter in spite of themselves; a third Christian reverses the image, & declares that let a man do all he can, he will certainly be punished in the another world; & a fourth will tell us, that if a man use any force for the common defence, he violates every principle of Christianity. Sir, the only evidence we can have of the sincerity & excellency of a man's religion, is a good life—and I trust that such evidence will be required of every candidate by every elector. That man who acts an honest part to his neighbour, will most probably conduct honorably towards the public."

The Port Folio (Periodical) Dec 4th 1802
""If, during the present season of national abasement, infatuation, folly and vice, any portent could surprise, sober men would be utterly confounded by an article current in all our newspapers, that the loathsome Thomas Paine, a drunken atheist, and the scavenger of faction, is invited to return in a national ship, to America, by the first Magistrate of a free people. A measure so enormously preposterous, we cannot yet believe has been adopted, and it would demand firmer nerves than those possessed by Mr. Jefferson, to hazard such an insult to the moral sense of the nation. If that rebel rascal should come to preach from His bible to our populace, it would be time for every honest and insulted man of dignity to flee to some Zoar as from another Sodom, to "shake off the very dust of his feet," and abandon "America."
It is not my design to remonstrate against this intimate alliance, by the mere 'application of harsh and general epithets, to the character and conduct of Thomas Paine. I can prove from various sources, that this man stands upon record, as a traitor to his trust; as a busy, oliicious and pestering medler, in affairs with which he had no business; and that for these sins, he was publicly reproached and dis- misied from office, by the American congress of 1779. I will prove further, that Mr. Jefferson could not be ignorant of this act of treachery, and that from that hour, he knew or ought to have known, that Thomas Paine could only disgrace any body, who cherished his acquaintance, or confided in his principles."

The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth by Thomas Jefferson 1904
The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth (also called The Jefferson Bible) was an attempt by Thomas Jefferson to glean the teachings of Jesus from the Christian Gospels. Jefferson wished to extract the doctrine of Jesus by removing sections of the New Testament containing supernatural aspects as well as perceived misinterpretations he believed had been added by the writers of the four Gospels.
