Georgia’s Christian Heritage Day at the State Capitol: September 13th

“I knew my call was to Georgia, and that I had taken leave of London, and could not justly go from the soldiers, who were committed to my charge.” George Whitfield, Evangelist of the Great Awakening

We often speak about the Christian heritage of America in general, but few people know how that was manifested in the individual states. History shows that God is not merely concerned with nations and empires, but also with local communities. While tyrants since the day of Babylon have tried to unite the world under one banner, God has always worked to tranform individual hearts inside-out. While pagans try to use the force of nations to change people, God uses individual people to change nations. This is just as true in our home state of Georgia as it is anywhere else in the world.

American Vision invites you to come for a day of discovery as we uncover some of the lost, obscured, and untold Christian history about the last British colony in North America that broke from its namesake. Families who come will receive a tour of the Georgia State Capitol as they hear how the providence of God impacted Georgia to bring us the freedoms we enjoy today. From the spark of the Great Awakening with George Whitfield to the legacy of the Puritans at Midway, to the forgotten story of how homeschooling became legal in Georgia, this day will chronicle the special blessings of God on our home state.

We will also have the opportunity to learn about civics and to meet several Georgia state legislators. It will be a great educational field trip for Christian students from elementary to high school ages. Registration includes special discounts for families. Contact us for other special group rates.

Schedule: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., September 13, 2012

Location: The Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta

    I m Muslim. And proud to be a Muslim. You guys have wrong informations about “ISLAM”. Simple if you want to learn Math, go to a Math teacher not a social study teachers. If you Really want to learn and know the truth and true informations about Islam, go and talk to Islamic Scollors, not priest or any other religion person who knows Islam very little, almost to nothing. ISLAM means Peace. Muslims worships only one God. The same god of Adam, Moses ,Ibrahim And ISA jesus the son of Marry. Read entire Quran at least once. Than compare it with torah, zubur and old testaments. They don’t worship Moon. Matter fact long ago Jews were and still using new moon to begin new months. This is just a symbol . It will be much better and help full if you read Quran instead of Burning it. Peace be apon you…

    • I can see how you would make the statement that you have; it follows a logical path of reasoning. Except the premise is in error and thus the path of logic is in error. Please allow me to explain; why is it that I must read the Quran to have an understanding of false teaching? For if I study, say the dollar bill, and I am intimate with all its aspects, would it not then give me the ability to spot a counterfeit bill? Then same principle is true with truth. Putting false teachings in my mind is not the means to determine counterfeit status, but to flood one’s mind with the truth. The comparison will come when out of a mind of truth, one is then able to spot the counterfeit. Hope this helps in some way!

    The Mayor of Atlanta has now spoken-up and joined the Mayors of Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco in denouncing the views of Mr. Cathy and his company Chick-Fil-A, and what are those views these Mayors are denouncing, Christian views as taught in the Bible. In doing so these Mayors are denouncing Christianity and the teachings of GOD, and there have even been a few more Mayors since who have also joined in denouncing these views of Christianity. What these Mayors of these great and large cities of the USA are doing is denouncing GOD Himself, is that what they also did in Sodom and Gomorrah? Obama was right, he promised us change and has delivered, for as he has so correctly said, the USA is no longer a Christian nation, as proven by the Mayors of these great and large USA cities.

      One rotten apple in the barrel will cause the whole barrel full to rot. The decay has begun and has gone a long way already, Will we few Christina be able to stop it before it is too late!!!

    • Erik H. Stoer, PhD says:

      These businesses are so popular it would be interesting to see what locals would say to their mayors if the business owners told them, ‘Alright, your mayor says he doesn’t want you to have the choice of Chick-Fil-A? We’ll go where people appreciate us (and our philosophy).” What I’d like to see is other mayors inviting the Cathys to bring Chick-Fil-A to their towns. Of course I wonder if our media would report it, even if they did?

    • susan pevenise says:

      the mayor of atlanta is a moslem. that tells you why he said that nonsense

    I wish someone would recruit John Daniels to speak. I just read his new book, ‘THE COMING: A TRUE STORY OF HORROR’ and was blown away! Not only does he prove that Islam is the Beast, he also proves God is real. It’s now available at Amazon.com. Unbelievable!

    • Myrtle Linder says:

      Sound great, where can I find a copy! Of course you cannot possibly prove the the Bible is true to liberals, they know every evasive trick and idea in the book!

    • Rob says:

      “Not only does he prove that Islam is the Beast, he also proves God is real. ”

      Um, Islam? Say, when will Georgia hold an “Islamic Heritage Day” at the State Capitol? I mean, after all, Islam does worship one god, as it is a monotheistic religion just like Christianity and Judaism. As a matter of fact, Muslims worship the God of Abraham…and, hey, what do you know, Christianity also worships the God of Abraham, and so does Judaism! Wow! What solidarity these three religions have!

      • Chris says:

        Hey Rob, Muslims do not worship our Lord, Jesus Christ. They worship a false god, a moon god, and don’t even know it. Every wonder why Islam’s symbol is a crescent moon with a star? Well there’s your answer.

        Want to learn more, read “From Jihad to Jesus.”
