Most Americans recognize the names of our founding fathers – Patrick Henry, George Washington, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson.
But few understand the Constitution the founders gave us -- neither its strengths nor its critical weaknesses. The true nature of the U.S. Constitution is elusive and not many find....
The Key which Unlocks
The Hidden Secrets of the U.S. Constitution
Thanks to the wonders of modern search engine technology that key is now within your grasp. But the lock does not turn easily.
You must read and think diligently in a way that will challenge your innate prejudice. Not many are willing to accept that challenge. Too often they are blinded by an unexamined patriotism. Patriotism not tempered by the Word of God.
Such patriotism is idolatrous. It is like the patriotism of the Jews who cried, "the temple, the temple, the temple," when God was about to destroy the temple because of their disobedience (Jer. 7).
Patriotism is a powerful emotion that can sometimes overrule Biblical truth if we indulge it. It takes a conscious effort to detach and allow the Bible to judge when our feelings of devotion to country might be misplaced.

This site challenges leading Christian America authors in their seeming "party line" defense of the Constitution's obvious violations of Scripture.
Most important, you'll discover why Patrick Henry challenged Washington, Madison, and Jefferson with these words:
"I SMELL A RAT!"
These Immortal words were uttered by Christian Statesman Patrick Henry when he refused his invitation to attend the U.S. Constitutional Convention in 1787.
"Discipling the Nations - The Government Upon His Shoulder" revisits Anti-Federalist objections to the U.S. Constitution raised by strong Christians such as Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams. This book and video challenges popular Christian authors such as Peter Marshall, David Barton (WallBuilders), D.J. Kennedy, John Eidsmoe and others in their seeming "party line" defense of the Federalist position of Washington, Madison and other Convention delegates.
Consider these popular, but erroneous teachings:
Myth: "George Washington was a Christian."
Fact: Washington was unitarian, a Freemason,and refused to take Holy Communion. His own pastor said he wasn't a Christian (see pp. 30-32).
Myth: "The U.S. Constitution is a Christian Document."
Fact: The Constitution denies the authority of God and the necessity of godly magistrates. (see pp. 21,27)
Myth: "The U.S. Constitution is based on the Bible.”
Fact: The founders' main defense of the Constitution-The Federalist Papers - never mentions the Bible, but has nearly 30 references to pagan Greece and Rome.(see p. 13)
"I Smell A Rat!"
Why did Patrick Henry say this? Henry foresaw the revolutionary character of what was being proposed. In the Anti-Federalist Papers he wrote:
"I need not take much pains to show, that the principles of this system, are extremely pernicious, impolitic, and dangerous. Here is a revolution as radical as that which separated us from Great Britain."
Is it possible that our leading Christian historians have overlooked the obvious? Was Patrick Henry right? To answer that question simply take a quick look at the political/cultural collapse around you.
The failure of most contemporary Christian historians to deal forthrightly with these facts constitutes a second American betrayal. When there's a mist in the pulpit there's a fog in the pew. Because church historians and leaders have not discerned the truth, America stumbles blindly toward the precipice of Divine judgment.
Because Christian historians have not told an accurate story, the American church believes the Constitution of 1787 is a blessing rather than a betrayal. They believe it is the epitome of Biblical government rather than apostasy from Biblical government. Some even believe the Constitution is a sacred document rather than a secular document. They believe it is a Divine covenant rather than a secular, social contract.
Thus, many Christians believe that the U.S. Constitution is a Biblical document from which we have drifted and to which we must return.
This web site advances the counter argument (Anti-Federalist) that the U.S. Constitution was from its inception an apostate covenant, which broke the pre-existing colonial covenants with God. The great need of the hour is for Christian leaders who will renew the national covenant and restore the religious test oath, in which officials must swear to govern according to the Bible.
