Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.
-Romans 12:2 (NABRE)
All men are but descendants of The Fall of Man. (1) From Creation and forevermore, “man” is responsible for the consequences of his own choices. Though man is of divine origin, people allow themselves to be easily deceived, whether by Satan or by the sinful deceptions of others. Pastor Bob Deffinbaugh, The Fall of Man (Genesis 3:1-24) Bible.org Series - Genesis: From Paradise to Patriarchs (May 11, 2004) https://bible.org/seriespage/fall-man-genesis-31-24 We allow ourselves to be manipulated by those distorting God’s word, denying God has any relevance to an enlightened culture, or instilling self-doubt by alluding religious faith is for only for those who “get bitter” and “cling to guns or religion.” Mayhill Fowler, Obama Exclusive (Audio): On V.P And Foreign Policy, Courting the Working Class, and Hard-Pressed Pennsylvanians, The Huffington Post (Apr. 19, 2009, 5:12 am) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mayhill-fowler/obama-exclusive-audio-on_b_96333.html

It's not surprising, then, that most public schools wont have these on their student reading lists: Frank Lambert, The Founding Fathers and the Place of Religion in America (2003); Mark Beliles and Douglas Anderson, Contending for the Constitution, (Providence Foundation eds., 2005); John Eidsmoe, Christianity and the Constitution: The Faith of Our Founding Fathers (1987); .

From those texts and others, it is evident that the events that led to the successful creation of the United States Constitution was due to the Providence of the sovereign God, and not coincidence.
