The Patriots Daily Bites of American History Series # 3

US History teacher Gregory Dixon at Baptist College 1956 The Great Awakening.. American Obedience and disobedience to the Word of God: 

by Bob Cosby and Gregory Dixon page 56 2nd and 3rd paragraph:

 The real impact of the Great Awakening was on the government of the new nation. The colonies had been struggling for more than 100 years to try to find a government that was Biblical and just. They had tried to do so through the concept that the State was ordained by God to make people do right. But the emphasis of the Great Awakening was to individual relationships with God and when they saw themselves spiritually answering directly to God it changed everything about their lives, including their relationship to the government.

 From this time and forward the people of the colonies would never see themselves the way they had seen themselves and they would never again see the world the way they had always seen it. In due time the revival of the Great Awakening would lead to the Revolutionary War. It was the Great Awakening that would define the Revolutionary war and make it different from the French Revolution or any of the other government upheavals taking place in that day. the British Mercantile system was a wicked system that enslaved the souls of men. The government it spawned with the King of England and Parliament was a failed government, incapable of governing godly people.

 The Puritans had tried to purify the system but had failed, and now there was only one place to go and that was to separate from it. Resolved that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, Free and Independent States: Motion made in the Continental Congress in Philadelphia June 7.1776 by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia and seconded by John Adams of Massachusetts.
