Christian Founders: John Hart of New Jersey

Some may say that our Founders were not men of faith. But it is not too hard to see hundreds of examples that prove that belief wrong. Many are already shown on this blog.

John Hart was a signer of the Declaration of Independence from New Jersey. He is one of many of our Founders who lost everything because of their siding with the revolution. In his last will and testament he wrote:

...Thanks be given unto Almighty God therefore, and knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die and after that the judgment [Hebrews 9:27] . . . principally, I give and recommend my soul into the hands of Almighty God who gave it and my body to the earth to be buried in a decent and Christian like manner . . . to receive the same again at the general resurrection by the mighty power of God.
