As MaureenKaplan said, the 'God' part was tacked on to the pledge in the 1950th. That's the same time when the God' thing appeared on the money.

Both of these alterations have no historical value, basically. The Founding Fathers never dreamed of such things. Probably because they still remembered religious persecution their parents endured before they escaped to what is now US.
