    The following video is not the plate of information that it may be to many. However, what is impressive is that of the 56 persons who signed the Declaration of Independence, 29 held seminary degrees?

    Did you know that for nearly a decade, church services were held inthe Capitol, led by the Marine Corp band?

    Enjoy this video, and draw your own conclusions as to how much influence God had on our founding fathers and the development of this nation.

    SEE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlfEdJNn15E

    Of course, I want to present both sides of the story presented by David Barton in the first video, so please view this video, too:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9W4I_NL7rI&feature=related

    Unfortunately, there are two sides, and you will have to draw your own conclusions. Consider the source of both speakers in the videos, and make up your own mind as to whether this nation is, or is not a Christian nation.

    For the sake of stopping any arguments before they begin. I am not promoting the abolishment of the separation of church and state. I am merely implying that this nation was founded by najority of believers, who prayed, trusted and read the Word of God. :praying:

    This is truly the reason we can say with confidence in our heart: God bless America!

    Shalom,

    Pastor Paul :type:

    Good question

    Sorry I don't have the answer to that, however there were bookkeeping, teacher schools, business schools, military schools, medical colleges, law schools, etc. I'm sure seminary was not the only game in town. But, it is still worth the price of the paper.

    For those always talking against higher education/seminary (cemetary) degrees, I'd wager they are thankful for the founders and patriots of old who did actually have some edjumication. :type:

    And they were all Freemasons, too!

    So not only have the Freemasons taken over our country and designed the streets in DC, and wear tophats n white gloves, they also had seminary degrees.

    Thus, higher education at a seminary is from the devil.

    I DARE any of you to refute my logic!!!!! :laugh:
