Our country was founded on Christian principles.  God says the country whose God is the Lord will be blessed (Psalm 33:12).  It is important that Americans recognize that God is our Lord and pray for our country.

Since many have denied the Christian involvement in the history of our country I thought todayI would recite a few quotes of famous Americans.

“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”  — George Washington

“All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity.  And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the Ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid?”” — Benjamin Franklin

“But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.” – President Abraham Lincoln

“Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.” -United States Supreme Court 1892, Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States

“Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America win cease to be great.” -Alexis de Tocqueville

“If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”  – Ronald Reagan
