June 4, 1639 – Fundamental Orders of New Haven

The revisionist history people who want to deny America’s founding on Christian principles crack me up. How they can gloss-over facts is both laughable and sad. When the founders of New Haven, CT decided to have a government, they produced the Fundamental Orders of New Haven on June 4, 1639. The document, pictured here, was developed in a barn and had four guiding principles: 1) Scripture has the perfect rules to follow, 2) We will follow Scripture, 3) We will create a church as soon as we feel God has led us to do so, and 4) We establish civil order so our citizens can put these principles into action. They were forced to join with the rest of the Connecticut colony in 1660 under one government.
