The American Revolutionary War with Britain cut off the supply of Bibles to the United States. American leaders during this time were greatly concerned about this lack of new Bibles.
FACT! On September 11, 1777 - the First American Momentous "9-11" - the United States Continental Congress passed a motion that would have instructed its Committee of Commerce to import 20,000 Bibles from "Scotland, Holland or elsewhere."
Since books in general, and Bibles in particular were becoming more scarce, it was their desire to see copies of the Scriptures made available "for our schools and families, and for the publick worship of God in our churches."
It was discussed further, and a second motion was made to pass an the resolution to import the Bibles. Complications developed, however and no Bibles were able to be imported.
Some suggested they print their own in the struggling economy. The War, however, was the first priority, financially, and soldiers were not even being paid - nor fed and clothed properly - and the money and materials to produce an American version of the Scriptures were extremely difficult to procure.
Immediately, however, an American Printer/published with a nose-for-a-dollar quickly printed the New Testament yet that year (1777), and soon the whole Bible, with reprints in 1778, 1779 and 1781.
After perfecting the printing and editing of the Holy Bible (this is NOT a book that allows for a 'reasonable numbers of errors!), on January 21, 1781, Aitken petitioned the Continental Congress to certify his version of the Bible which he had already printed as being textually accurate.
Aitken also presented the Continental Congress with copies asking them to inspect and authorize his recently produced copy of the Holy Scriptures.
The petition was received and handed over to a Congressional committee for immediate consideration, which consisted of three men:
> John Adams, "Father of the Revolution"
> Daniel Roberdeau,
> Jonathan Bayard Smith.
On September 1, 1782, a committee that had been appointed to consider Aitken's petition asked the chaplains of the Congress of the Confederation to examine his Bible for accuracy. They were
> Rev. Dr. William White, Bishop of Pennsylvania, Rector of Christ Church in Philadelphia,
> and the Rev. George Duffield of the Third Presbyterian Church,
On September 12, 1782, based upon the report of the committee, the Congress of the Confederation approved "the pious and laudable undertaking of Mr. Aitken,
as subservient to the interest of religion, as well as an instance of the progress of the arts in this country" and recommended his Bible to the American people.
In 1783, after Aitken's Bible had begun to be distributed, Dr. John Rodgers of the First Presbyterian Church of New York suggested to General George Washington that every discharged soldier be given a copy of Aitken's Bible.
Since the war was coming to a close and Congress had already ordered the discharge of two-thirds of the army, the suggestion came too late.
However, Washington said,
"It would have pleased me well, if Congress had been pleased to make such an important present to the brave fellows who have done so much for the security of their country's rights and establishment."
Please note, that the US Congress had no problem "approving and recommending this Bible to the American people.
Would to God we modern Americans RETURNED to the Values of the Founding Fathers!
