Today our government tries to take God and the Bible out of everything, and our society is losing its morals; it's growing farther and farther away from God. People used to know how important God and the Bible were to society! Here are several quotes from some of the great leaders of our nation, on the importance of keeping God in our government.
"We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings that, 'except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it' (Psalm 127:1). I firmly believe this, and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the building of Babel." - Benjamin Franklin
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians, not on religions but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason people of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here." - Patrick Henry
"The only assurance of our nation's safety is to lay our foundation in morality and religion." - Abraham Lincoln
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other." - John Adams
"Religion and morality are the essential pillars of society." - George Washington
"The Bible is the Rock on which our Republic Rests." - Andrew Jackson
To all of the problems man has ever known... It is my firm belief that the enduring values presented in it pages have a great meaning for each of us and for our nation. The Bible can touch our hearts, order our minds, and refresh our souls. - Ronald Reagan
People used to know how important Christianity was (and still is), and they would try to keep God and the Bible in everything they did. But today in our society people treat Christianity as if it is of no importance.
