The South the core of Christianity
The South is the home of the most devoted Christians, believers, donors, and givers in all the world.
Southern Christian donations feed the poor all over the globe
Southern churches build homes and schools in over 100 countries.
Southerners are responsible for medical care, vaccinations, and feeding schoolchildren in over 150 countries.
For the Confederate national identity in the South, Christianity and Jesus Christ is the chosen religious direction for them and their families.
The Confederate States of America always claimed to be a uniquely Christian nation. This is the reason why we are so harshly criticized and attacked.
The Confederate constitution adopted in February and ratified in March of 1861 officially declared its Christian identity “ invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God.”
Southern leaders chose as their national motto Deo Vindice.
(God will avenge).
Confederate President Jefferson Davis proclaimed that the time had come “to recognize our dependence upon God… and “Supplicate his merciful protection”
This national acknowledgment of religious dependence, as the South frequently pointed out during the war years in both the religious and secular press, stood in Stark contrast to the godless government of the north.
The northern government ignored God in its constitution and put secular concerns above the sacred duties of Christian service and the divine commission.
In today’s political and social liberal corruption Southerners are portrayed as villains, traitors, or racist.
Historical records prove otherwise. Southerners recognize and exemplify true Christian beliefs.
American Christians lead the spreading of the gospel across the globe. And Southerners lead America in this effort.
On June 13, 1861, President Davis declared the confederacy‘s first national day of fasting. Vindication for the new nation under God seems to come with the South’s victory at First Manassas on July 21, 1861.
In a Thanksgiving Day sermon preach the same day in Richmond Virginia, at Saint John’s Episcopal Church, William C Butler declared:
God has given us of the South today a fresh and golden opportunity and so a most solemn command to realize that form of government in which the just, constitutional rights of each and all are guaranteed to each and all. He has placed us in the front rank of the most Marked epochs of the world’s history. He has placed in our hands a commission which we can faithfully execute only by holy, individual self-consecration to all of God‘s plans.
Such declarations, once Rare in the south, would now become a staple of the religious press, the civilian preachers, the military chaplains, and the politicians. Southern men and southern leaders lived their personal and military lives by the book.
The holy book of our Christian Bible.
“If I have ever come in contact with a sincere, devout Christian one who, seeing himself to be a sinner, trusted alone in the merits of Christ who hopefully tried to walk the path of duty, looking unto Jesus, The author, and finisher of our faith, and his piety was consistently exemplified in his daily life, that man is the worlds greatest soldier and model man.”
Robert E. Lee
My religious beliefs teach me to feel as safe in battle as in a bed. God has fixed the time of my death. I do not concern myself with that, but to be always ready whenever it may overtake me. That is the way all men should live, and all men would be equally brave.
“The evidence of a savior pardoning love …. And prayed to God guide me in the right way and teach me to walk as a Christian should.”
Stewart was a wholly devoted Christian. He trusted God‘s guidance and no matter what any man could say Stewart believed and trusted God and follow the path he was given.
“We are born on the same soil, breathe the same air, live on the same land, why should we not be brothers and sisters?”
Nathan Bedford Forrest
In 2021 today the South is generally socially conservative, evangelical protestant, and plays a strong role in both society and politics.
Christian church attendance across all denominations is generally higher in the South than the nation’s average.
Any social attack on Southerners is a clear and present danger for it is as equal as attacking Christianity, Jesus Christ, and our holy book that Southerners live by the grace of Jesus Christ‘s teachings.
Stand strong my brothers and sisters in Christ.
Be proud of your heritage and your Southern Cross.
Display it proudly across our land.
