America's Godly Heritage | The Constitution Part 1 - The Declaration of Independence & The Constitution
Manage episode 377651470 series 3395740
Some believe that since God is not clearly named in the Constitution, that it is a humanistic document. However, God's fingerprints are all over it.
Our Founders, who created the God-affirming Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, meant for them to work together. 1) The two documents helped unite the fledgling nation. 2) The Declaration outlines why the United States was created, and the Constitution then outlines how the United States government would be created. 3) The Declaration describes fundamental God-given liberties, but the Constitution (particularly in the Bill of Rights) creates the legal framework to protect these liberties.
