This Pen and ink illustration was done for the cover of a church statement of
faith. I named this illustration, Foundation of America because I believe
this country was founded by christian who had strong faith in the God of the
Bible, and through faith , prayer, and sacrifice, the patriots over came The
mighty British military . By the hand of God, A new nation was born, The United
States Of America. When the united states was filled with God fearing
people, God raised The country to be a supper power, and the world envied
the united states and flock to her shores the land of freedom and opportunity.
Now this country has forgotten the God who Has given birth to her, Now is
setting up new idols to worship, idols of wood , stone, metals, that do not
hear or see, or care. Because the united states has forgotten God, It has
been plagued with storms, tornadoes, flood, drought, and her enemies are
raging war with her, waiting to celebrate her full.
It is my hope and prayer that people who love this country would return to
honoring God, and return to giving Him thank for all the great works He has
done for this nation, and turn from our sins and follow after God by obeying
His Word, the Holy Bible. That God would remove His hand of judgment ,
and His blessing may return to our country.
This church was fist built in 1890 and still is being used as a church.
it is located in Norristown Pennsylvania
This was the first Bible believing church I attended, when I became a christian.
