History and Government

The goal of Under God is to develop effective citizens within the framework of the Christian faith and Christian principles. To help students attain this goal, Under God includes sound ideas about the foundations of constitutional government and the historical background of United States government.


The starting point in teaching government is the basic conviction that God ordains it. He is the source of authority. That concept is the root of good government. The fear of the Lord is not only the basis, but also the motivation for good citizenship.


Dr. Ruth Beechick also has some resources for history from the Biblical perspective.
