Abigail Miller: "With us, Christianity and religion are identified. It would be strange,
indeed, if with such a people our institutions did not presuppose
Christianity and did not often refer to it and exhibit relations with it."
-Founder and Supreme Court Justice, John Marshall "America was born a
Christian nation America was born to exemplify that devotion to the
elements of righteousness which are derived from the revelations of Holy
Scripture." -President Woodrow Wilson
Abigail Miller: @MsRaraboo16 Abigail had a wonderful time and was humbled and blessed to be
a part of a song she wrote with so many singing with her. Awesome!
christihelzerman: Great job! It was a great blessing! Christ Helzerman
Abigail Miller: I'm Paul, Abigail's husband. I manage this account. Article 11 is taken out
of context. It's believed by many scholars to not even be part of the
original draft from the Arabic. (See Wiki article.) I also asked you to
read the Wallbuilders (dotcom) article on it, as it retains the context.
Did you? Furthermore, as far as I remember, the Treaty of Tripoli did NOT
say America was secular. You're assuming that. You didn't show where I
pulled the Adams quote out of context, as you claimed.
Abigail Miller: You're wrong. Webster fought in the Revolutionary War, was a judge and
legislator. He was also one of the first Founders to call for a
Constitutional Convention...and directly impacted the final wording of the
Constitution. He certainly doesn't help your claims, does he? So I
understand why you attack him. The problem you have is that he was an
eyewitness, & you're not. Furthermore, you can't refute him with history.
So he wins. I just checked the online version & saw no such definitions.
rachelfaith1997: pst hi hannah i knew you would look this up. :D
Abigail Miller: Adams saying that the Constitution was for a moral and religious, and that
it was wholly inadequate for any other, is a reflection of his own personal
faith--his own opinion, in essence? LOL! C'mon, friend. Adams had the
authority to make such a statement. He was there. How can we look back 200+
years from the time and assume we know more than they did, or that somehow
their statements really didn't mean what they appear to mean, because in
2010 we don't think like that? We can't.
Abigail Miller: Jefferson also said, "The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to
the happiness of mankind." So we seem to have a contradiction here...or do
we? Now, if Jefferson really believed that, and I have no reason to think
he didn't, then why would he, and other Founders, set up a system of
government that is based on anything other than that which brings the
greatest happiness to mankind? Is that logical? Wouldn't it be unkind of
them not to include the very best for their fellow man?
Abigail Miller: Praise the Lord! What youth conference were you at? God bless you.
Abigail Miller: You're exactly right! American is not part of any CHURCH or SECT. That's
exactly what the First Amendment was written for. The Founders of America
came from England where the Anglican Church ruled the land. They didn't
want that here. BUT, the principles of Christianity are all over are
history. And that makes total sense since most of the people were
Abigail Miller: Can you show me where it was INTENTIONAL by the Founders that no mention of
God or Jesus was in the Constitution? Maybe you have a quote from some of
them? "Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and
embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it
should be otherwise. In this sense and to this extent, our civilizations
and our institutions are emphatically Christian." -Supreme Court of
tenerife4him: Nice job Abigail. Thinking of you and your family.
Abigail Miller: Yes, I'm sure the Williams Brewster and Bradford struck fear into the
Indians with their fierce countenances and fiery behavior. (sigh.) What
history are you reading anyway, Howard Zinn?
Abigail Miller: Shouldn't you be posting the quotes that call my agenda into question? I'll
challenge you to do that. Quote the Founders who said that America wasn't
founded on Christian principles. No, it's not horrible. Homosexuality is a
sin. God says so in his word, the Bible, and the Bible is the final
authority on all moral issues. If there is no God or true Bible, then
nothing is wrong. But if the God of the Bible is real and the true God,
then homosexuality is wickedness.
Abigail Miller: So you're an expert on the Bible now? Ok then, prove it. Show where the
Bible states that a person does not have the right to not believe. The
human rights you speak of began BEFORE the enlightenment. Shoot, our
Constitution was written and ratified while Jefferson was IN France, where
that movement was strongest (and the most violent, I'll add). Enlightenment
ideas did not have as much influence on our founding documents as
Abigail Miller: The states have rights here, too, and the federal gov't does not always
have the right to override the states. It's that balance of power that is
part of the reason for the success of our gov't structure. But when it
comes to a Constitutional matter, the Constitution overrides everything.
Abigail Miller: That must have been the one. One of the pastors called us and told us about
the conference, and that the Lord was doing great things there. Praise God!
Abigail Miller: So when Adams said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and
religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other,"
he didn't know what he was talking about? Wallbuilders is an excellent
source because they post ALL the context from ORIGINAL documents,and not
just what suits their belief system. I've challenged others in the past to
show me where David Barton has erred in his history, and to date, no one
has done it. Perhaps you'd like to try?
Abigail Miller: Can you quote the source of "our own history" where God and the church were
intentionally left out? America is all about religious freedom, by the way.
(And that is a Christian principle.) The First Amendment applied to
DENOMINATIONS (sects) of Christianity, not the principles of it. You're
looking at history with a 2010 worldview. You can't do that and get a
proper understanding. You have to view it with a late 18th century
worldview. Then it will all be clear.
moldingintoalady: Thank you for sharing this song. I absolutely love it, for it reminds me of
my duty as a Christian. :)
computersguy13: Great song! YOu should put the lyrics in the discription though! Anyways,
write more like it!
Abigail Miller: I'm becoming less and less inclined to approve your messages, due to the
fact that you're becoming more and more hostile in your tone. (And just
think, YOU'RE trying to paint Christians as being the hostile ones. Oh, the
irony!) There is no doubt that the dark ages ended as a result of the
English being put into the common language, and from the influence of the
Reformation. If you don't believe that then all you have is your belief and
very little real history. This is just fact.
Abigail Miller: Well, not really. Wallbuilders purports to render the true history of
America. You call true history propaganda. The first quote by Adams I gave
you did include Christianity. The last one said our Constitution was ONLY
for a moral and religious people. You accused me of using his Christian
quote out of context (which you've yet to prove), and you tried to relegate
the Constitution quote to his own opinion. Sorry to say, you're not really
making a solid case against a man who lived THEN.
preachthehelloutofya: That scripture is to the people of God.If God's people would humble
themselves,pray,seek His face, and turn from THEIR WICKED WAYS. Only then
will God forgive THEIR SINS and hear from heaven and heal THEIR LAND..
great video. my my
ky farmers daughter: @MamaMario13 I don't know what Canada was founded upon, but America was
founded upon Godly principles. Our forefathers came to the U.S. in hopes of
religion freedom which they did not have in England and other countries. I
think this is one reason why we want to "Get America back to God". We see
what she used to be and we (Christians) want that again!
Abigail Miller: Not really. Most of these ideas were born out of the broken chains of the
dark ages. And the instrument that ended the dark ages was the translation
of the Bible into English (namely by John Wycliffe), and the "enlightening"
ideas that man can be accountable to God directly, without the aid of the
church. THAT was the beginning of true freedom, and Christianity was the
seed of it all.
catlyana13: This is my favorite Christian song! Everytime I listen to it, it gives me a
good reminder about America's condition, and how we as faithful Christians,
must continue to pray for our country, even until the end of the world.
Heavenly Father, I KNOW you will bless us, and make the wickedness stop.
Abigail Miller: You said they INTENTIONALLY left God and Jesus out. I asked you to prove
it. My point is that the Constitution was not meant to be a theological
treatise. And you're wrong about the Supreme Court statement. It was not
from the Church of the Holy Trinity case. It was from the 1883 IL Supreme
Ct. Illinois is part of the United States, and a supreme court ruling has
merit. The U.S. government is not its own country. It's made up of states.
Again, no quote mining here. Just true history.
April Csire: I was there that was a great Youth Conference. I was my first year and I
really liked it.
Abigail Miller: "Almost all the civil liberty now enjoyed in the world owes its origin to
the principles of the Christian religion." -Noah Webster, Founding Father
"To the corruptions of Christianity I am, indeed opposed; but not to the
genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only sense in
which he wished any one to be; sincerely attached to his doctrines, in
preference to all others." -Thomas Jefferson The proofs just keep piling up!
Abigail Miller: Not all humans are God's children. He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to pay
for the sins of all humanity, but not all will trust in what Jesus did and
believe. Only those that do are God's children. A gay person can certainly
do this--and many have. But they must recognize themselves--and their gay
lifestyle--as an offense against their Maker, repent, and trust in Christ.
Otherwise, they will deservedly go to hell.
Rebekah Brooks: I LOVE THIS SONG. I HAVE HER CD " I CAN GO IN" WE ARE SINGING I CAN GO IN
FOR MY TEEN CHOIR!
jay dizzle: Since you support cold blooded murder, please stay away from me!!!
Darrell Reeves: I can't begin to say how wonderful this song/video is. Is it by chance
available as a sound track?
Abigail Miller: @wsj96226 Thanks, Willy! Nice to hear from you and thank you for praying.
Elizabeth J: God loves all his children. Even those who happen to be gay.
Hannah Marie: I really love this song...I was hoping to learn it on the piano. Does
anyone have the sheet music?
wsj96226: Miss. Miller this song is awsome hope you guys have a fun summer we are
praying for you to have a safe trip around the country tell daniel i said
hi! FROM willy
onlytrusthim: Wow - very powerful and profound! I love this song - among the many others!
Tammy Starnes: cute kid
Abigail Miller: When did these freedoms begin to become a reality in human history?
bluesonata56: I first heard this song over a year ago at my church when one of our
visiting missionary's children played and sang it. It brought me to tears
and it still does. I pray daily that the Lord will turn America back to
Him. Our nation is at a precipice. May God help us! I LOVE this song!
Abigail Miller: "The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ
and his apostles, which enjoins humility, piety, and benevolence; which
acknowledges in every person a brother, or a sister, and a citizen with
equal rights. This is the genuine Christianity, and to this we owe our free
Constitution of government. -Noah Webster in his "History of the United
States," pg 274. It's not all buried in letters as you accuse. I'm still
waiting for all those quotes refuting what I've claimed.
Abigail Miller: This is simply untrue. And the Pilgrims themselves were nothing like that.
Ginger Barber: this is amazing, thank you for sharing!
Abigail Miller: You've repeatedly accused me of quote mining and pulling statements out of
context, but you've yet to prove it once, even after repeated challenges
from me to do so. Remember, just saying something doesn't make it so. We're
trying to debate the FACTS here, not opinion.
Abigail Miller: Oops! You made a mistake. I never said I believed America was founded on a
Christian theocracy. I said it was founded on Christian PRINCIPLES, just
like John Adams said. Now my basis for believing that is broad. From the
landing of the Pilgrims and Puritans in the 1620/30s to the Founders,
America WAS Christian. The first building erected in every town was a
church, the impact of the Great Awakening, the plethora of statements by
the Founders, the writing on our gov't buildings, etc.,etc.
Abigail Miller: Yes, Hannah, we have the sheet music for "Turn the Tide" on our website:
abigailmiller[.]com. Click the "Purchase Music" tab and you'll see sheet
music when it drops down.
Abigail Miller: Praise the Lord!
Abigail Miller: Thank you for the kind comments, amammv. The lyrics can be found on
Abigail's website. If you do a Google search for "Abigail Miller" you'll
see it. God bless you!
