Our nation was based on Biblical principles.
Down through the decades, many of America's presidents have led our nation in the same spirit. Their words express the heart of that original vision.
"Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles." - George Washington.
"The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God." - John F. Kennedy.
"Duty is ours. Results are God's." - John Quincy Adams.
"Hold fast to the Bible as the sheet anchor of your liberties. Write its precepts in your hearts, and practice them in your lives. To the influence of this book are we indebted for all the progress made in true civilization, and to this we must look as our guide in the future. Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." - Ulysses S. Grant.
"It is my conviction that the fundamental trouble with the people of these United States is that they have gotten too far away from almighty God." - Warren G. Harding.
"Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity, and a firm reliance on him, who has never yet forsaken this favored land, are still competent to adjust, in the best way, all our present difficulty." - Abraham Lincoln.
"Without God, there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first, the most basic expression of Americanism. Thus the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus with God's help it will continue to be." - Dwight D. Eisenhower.
"The purpose of a devout and united people was set forth in the pages of The Bible (1) to live in freedom, (2) to work in a prosperous land and (3) to obey the commandments of God This Biblical story of the Promised land inspired the founders of America. It continues to inspire us." - Dwight D. Eisenhower
"The whole inspiration of our civilization springs from the teachings of Christ and the lessons of the prophets. To read the Bible for these fundamentals is a necessity of American life." - Herbert C. Hoover.
"Let us look forward to the time when we can take the flag of our country and nail it below the Cross, and there let it wave as it waved in the olden times, and let us gather around it and inscribed for our motto: 'Liberty and Union, one and inseparable, now and forever, and exclaim, Christ first, our country next!'" - Andrew Johnson.
"It is a great comfort to trust God - even if his providence is unfavorable. Prayer steadies one when he is walking in slippery places - even if things asked for are not given." - Benjamin Harrison.
We need a president who honors God and serves him daily. Along with the people he was elected to serve.
