What is inscribed on the Liberty Bell?

The following scripture: 
Leviticus 25:10 Proclaim liberty throughout the land until all the inhabitants thereof

Dec 15, 1777  John Adams in a letter to his wife, Abigail, describing the activities of the Continental Congress
I have had many opportunities during the course of this journey to observe how deeply rooted our cause is in the minds of the people. . . One evening as I sat in the room I overheard a company of a common sort of people in another room conversing on serious subjects. At length I heard these words, "It appears to me the eternal Son of God is operating powerfully against the British nation for their treating lightly serious things."

October 12, 1778 Congress issued the following act
Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness: Resolved, that it be and it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof.

    Morning, MaryLu.
    Wow ... that the 'hands of time' (so to speak) could be turned "back" ... to the roots and heart of the original Congress, "allowing" God ... to be God ! Oh, how desperately we NEED those "solid foundations" returned (true religion and good morals) ... and just
    'imagine' what our Nations today ... could become !!! "IF" God could have His 'rightful place' over us ... if Countries acknowledged Him and sought His face ... the World as we now know it 'would be' -- healthy nd renewed ! Liberty AND justice ... for "all" !!!
    Thanks, MaryLu .. for sharing this. (It is just so sad though ... to see how far the Nation has strayed away ....)
    Take care, and, God Bless,
    In Him, Brenda Hurley

  2. If only people would wake up from their sleep and realize just how dangerously close America is to losing her Christian foundation. Thomas Jefferson himself warned that a nation full of ignorant and uneducated people is a nation headed for disaster. I think he may be right...

  3. Oh Brenda, I completely Agree!! This nation could be the light for the whole world if we'd only return to our Godly foundation.
    Eszter, you hit on a good point. Most people in our country don't educate themselves on our true history and on what is happening. They are too caught up in selfish pursuits. And our forefathers knew that you can't have a nation governed by the people if the people don't know what they are doing. Very sad.

  4. This is a great post MaryLU...sometimes I wonder if God has "spared" us so far because of the Christians here that do pray for our country. Not sure...but I agree that we need to return to our Christian heritage in this country. It's because of that we have been so richly blessed :) :) Thanks for sharing this with us :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
