Q; Len, all Christians are deists? No,I was not clear, Founding Father; Jefferson, Paine, Franklin, Freemasons and deist.

Q; But were not the first Europeans to arrive in America Christians fleeing persecutionm here? They were fleeing persecution in europe due to they did not have the freedom to perscute others. The Puretins (Calvinist) had no concept of freedom.

Democracy is a 100% pagan secular concept,(Athens Greece, 500bc)

Surely, Len, all Christians are deists?
No, I am wrong ... thought I would check my dictionary, which says "Believer in the existence of a god, without accepting revelation" But we believe in THE God, so we are not simple deists. But were not the first Europeans to arrive in America Christians fleeing persecutionm here?

Afraid not! While it was founded on Christian principals, they are not in "vogue" at the moment by most of the government. While there are Christians in the United States, we are considered as a "pagan" nation by the United Nations.

I believe some Americans are Christians, however America nor other countries themselves are actually Christian, for until Jesus comes for the ressurection the world is still in power of the wicked one. Satan is still controlling the world, governments everything, but we as individuals that serve God, yes we are Christians.

I don't believe the US is a Christian nation. The legalization of abortion is one evidence of it. There are Christian's here who serve the Lord, but this nation as a whole does not.

When America was founded it was not a secular society. The founders were well immersed in Christian culture. MOST of the Founders were Freemasons and Deist. Washington was a 32 degree mason. Jefferson was no Christian, as Thomas Paine was not. Seeing the horror of Church sponsered regimes in Europe, they were hostile to religion in goverment, thus the 'establishment' clause. Religion in goverment corrupts both.

America from the beginning, like many countries world-wide, was and is today a nation of a few (not all) Christians. Not everyone who say they believe in God (whoever he, she, it might be) is a Christian. Only persons who believe in and obey the biblical "Word of God" (Jesus) are Christians.

We might get tied up by the definition of what a "Christian" is, and what a "Christian nation" is. In southeast asia, the Philippines is considered to be a Christian nation because majority of the inhabitants are not Muslims. Muslim is the predominant religion in southeast asia.

The last statistics I read stated that 80% of Americans believe in God. However I've not a clue how many live for Him, or are Christians.
It seems to me that the US is becoming less and less Christian.

We barely qualify as a Christian nation if we had been plopped here last week. We are now in a post-Christian society and God is probably having a rough time finding 50..40..30..20..10 righteous people in the whole country, boom.

The first Europeans to come to America were looking for a route to the east.. the Pilgrims came to escape persecution for their beliefs, but other religeous beliefs (i.e. Catholics) were not allowed here with them.
