Presidents Standing For The Bible

See the book America At the Tipping point

I was taking a venture into a great book on the fall of America. In it was the words of our leaders from presidents to justices on the Supreme Court. In looking at todays Supreme Court I count it an honor that I will be judged by the true God of an even greater court.
President George Washington, "It is impossible to rightly govern without God or the Bible."
On speaking of the Bible, President Andrew Jackson said, "That book sir is the Rock upon which our public rests."
Abraham Lincoln said, "In regard to this great Book I have to say this, it is the best gift God has given to men. All the good Savior gave to the world was communicated through this Book."
Then one president had this to say of God and the Bible,"Inside the Bible lie all the answers to all the problems man has ever known. It is my firm belief that the enduring values presented in its pages have a great meaning, for each of us and our nation. The Bible can touch our hearts, order our words, and refresh our souls," Ronald Reagan.
John Quincy Adams,"All must admit that the reception of the teachings of Christ results in the purest patriotism, in the most scrupulous fidelity to public trust, and the best kind of citizenship."
This next passage should be one on every American Christian heart. We have fallen here and need to return to our God the Father of Heaven. This small passage shows us of our great need of revival in America. Thomas Jefferson, "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."


Conclusion

Maybe instead of expounding I simply should say read that last one again and again. See the deep meaning behind it. I tremble for my country, it is like saying I fear for America. When I reflect that God is just, He is a Holy just sovereign God. His will His desires His Ways will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. He will bring to justice the unjust. He will bring purity to the impure. Just what end of that justice will we be on. My friend that is up to you. That His justice cannot sleep forever. Peter said God is long suffering not willing that any should perish, but God must be just and put an end to the injustice of this world. He will not let it go on for very long. Oh, and one more thing, separation of church and state that phrase has never been in the constitution of the United States. Nor has it ever been in the first amendment. It is a misinterpretation from Thomas Jefferson to Danbury Baptist Association pastor, Roger Williams written by Jefferson while he was serving as Ambassador in France.
All quotes by the presidents on this hub are public record, most of them from court trials or spoken during the making of the U.S. constitution, or from the American Revoluiion.

Part of being an evangelist is communicating effectively. However, without quotation marks or distinct paragraphing, this hub is barely intelligible. I suggest a thorough revision.

What is the title of this "great book on the fall of America," by the way?

Chasuk,

Yeah I wrote this out in my pages and then copied and pasted to here, all the quotes were in italics but that somehow did not come through. It looked good in my pages. All quotes are public record in the United States courts and throughout the writing of the constitution. The 5th book down on the list at top is the book.

Michael,

I guess I'm unintelligible because I understood exactly what you were saying. Form isn't everything. I'm glad for the foundation America was built upon. I just wish we would return. When you stop to think about it, America was born out of the leftovers of The Great Awakening (Jonathan Edwards, etc.). I'd love to see an instant replay of the 1700's.

olga,

The books listed are all good ones about the end days and America, The last one America at the tipping point has all these quotes and several more. By the way, if you want even more search google for them they are all public record. The book is from a little over $9 to $16 but after reading it I can truly say it is worth a lot more, $30 would not be too much for the information contained in this book.

Lifegate,

I would love to see an instant replay also and with prayer and events like The Great American Fast I believe it can happen.

Really nice hub Michael, thanks so much for sharing this. It's good to see it wasn't always so screwed up in our government and politics:)

MinTwin,

Thanks for the reply, yes it is refreshing to see men of conviction that started this country now to get more people like that again!

Well those who want to take God out of the country are slowly being silenced. Those who have God dwell inside them are raising their voices to Praise his wonderful name! Excellent hub! :-) I wish you many blessings... (((hugs)))

Jo,

Thank you very much, yes I am seeing a return, I think people are starting to realize just how far off this country has gotten and want back the true America!

I thought it was a good hub and I certainly understood it. We need to be reminded of the godly men who governed their lives and this country based upon God's Word.

His daughter thank you so much for the reply. yes we do need Godly men and women willing to speak the truth of what America is about from her beginnings to the present.

I thought this was an intelligent and truthful hub. By having God as the foundation for our lives, we can avoid the pitfalls before us. When we ignore God, it allows us to become lazy and easily influenced to our surroundings. Great hub! Voted up!

tipoague,

Yes we do become lazy when we take God for granted, we must continually strive to work for Him, thank you so much for your comment.

Vladinmir, quite welcome my friend, I kind of thought it timely as July 4, our independence day is drawing close.

Michael, just look at the preamble to each States Constitution.....all of them revered God enough to include them in their Constitution....that alone says much about the mind-set of our great forefathers and the significance He plays in our ability to thrive as a free nation.

Great Hub...I love it when we are reminded of some of the most obvious things in our History...and so many liberals want to leave it out.

CMerritt,

Yes each one included God, I listed a few quotes in the hub but there are so many more that are just amazing as to what the presidents and forefathers of this nation had to say. The Mayflower compact is an awesome piece as well as the farewell address of George Washington and Washington's address to the soldiers at the military academy. I forget if that was West Point yet or not but he gave a speech reciting how the revolution was won not at the hands of man but by the sovereign grace of God. Every speech Lincoln made while president was begun and ended with prayer while exalting God throughout the speech. Man we have fallen! But I believe we can make it back to a Holy Just Sovereign God through revival. Thank you so much for the reply!

Great hub loved reading it you did a good job. Once we get God back in this country we will start seeing things get better for all of us. Now I hear this morning they want to take God out of the ceremony for 911 memorial.

Love your dog we have one just like that.

Moonlake, yes we need to show God in all we do, especially in the 911 ceremony!b That is why the islamists hit the towers because they hate America being a Christian nation, therefore we need to have a ceremony glorifying God.

WIth the way the world is going,one wonders what went wrong with the reading and following of the Bible. Good hub, makes one think of what is said versus what is done.

Alladream,

Yes it does make us wonder, the inception of the United States of America was on the Bible and word of God was to be followed as the architectural foundation of this country.
