U.S. Founding Documents

For Christian the first loyalty is to the Bible and to the Church. While the practice of the Christian faith can be had anywhere and under the most hostile regimes, it is to the form of government created under the Founding Documents of the United States of America that represents the first and best measure to ensure and protect the essential Judeo-Christian ethic and values for society and for men.

The founding documents of the United States of America are, therefore, the most significant secular documents in human history.

While fundamental justice must be defined by the Church, the U.S. Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Federalist Papers outlines the best secular application of the justice and human dignity granted to men by our Creator.

Thus, to truly understand Truth and Justice we must first look to the Church, then to the documents of the founding of the United States to see the application of truth and justice as best protected by secular society.

Thomas Paine proclaimed in his pamphlet, Common Sense:

“The Independence of America, considered merely as separation from England, would have been but a matter but of little importance, had it not been accompanied by a revolution in the principles and practice of governments. She made a stand, not only for herself only, but for the world.?

Because this so, we present here the texts of important U.S. founding documents from the Avalon Project, Lillian Goldman Law Library, Yale Law School.
