This is an amazing testimony of how the Glory of God exhibits His Sovereignty to an individual, Samuel Spring. As a young man Dr. Spring then lives the extensibility of the Gospel through a  faithfulness of belief put into action. One has to not just watch this video but read this Chapter several times over and ask who else you know that is as Rev. Spring was?

In our day and age I would say few to none.

Fact Not Fiction:

This book is the Historical Fact that Christianity (see the link at the end) is the root of our American Heritage and a key factor in the inspiration of the Revolution. God governance is God’s governance and the Citizenry understood this. Those that were Chaplains and Clergy were not just religious mouth pieces. NO, They were warrior Patriots that spoke first the Word of God and then the musket or sword.

I am reading this book as if to my Grandchildren. I hope that parents and Grandparents would do the same. I hope and pray more that Pastors would be in these tumultuous times as the same that these Founding Clergy and Chaplains were.

Let us all learn and act according to the Blessing and examples they set for US in our Foundation.
