Election Day

Today being Election Day and our country voting in a new President ,I thought I would put some quotes from past Presidents .Reading these wise words makes you realize why this country is in such a mess.Because we have lifted man up, and brought God down.We have a love for soft-living and we've kicked the Bible out of our government.Our country needs more then a good president and it needs more than a change in government .It needs a Good Revival, and a Change of Heart!Christians ,we need to fall down on our faces and repent and pray for America!
We need to stand for the truth,We need to lift up God and His Word.

President George Washington
His first inaugural address:
It would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to the Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of the nations... In tendering this homage to the Great Author of every public and private good, I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own... I shall take my present leave ; but not without resorting once more to the benign Parent of the Human Race in humble supplication that, since He has been pleased to favor the American people with opportunities...
so His Divine blessing may be equally conspicuous in the enlarged views , the temperate consultations , and the wise measures on which the success of this Government must depend.

President Theodore Roosevelt
Defining ''Americanism":
Americanism means the virtues of courage ,honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood- the virtues that made America.
The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love-of-soft-living,
and the get-rich-quick theory of life.

President Abraham Lincoln:
I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given man. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this Book.But for it we could not know right from wrong.

President Calvin Coolidge:
The American Revolution was preceded by the great religious revival of the middle of the eighteenth century, which had it's effect both in England and in the colonies.When the common people turned to the reading of the Bible,...
when they were stirred by a great revival,... the way was prepared.... It was because religion gave the people a new importance and a new glory that they demanded a new freedom and a new government .We cannot in our generation reject the cause and retain the result.

President Ronald Reagan:
Of the many influences that have shaped the United States into a distinctive nation and people, none may be said to be more fundamental and enduring than the Bible.

Thank you for all this!
Your post was quite encouraging!
And though Barack Obama - a man who is against God's holy and preserved Word in every imaginable way - is now our country's president... my faith still remains in Christ! That He will keep His children out of harms way of this new found president. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Christ has promised us that He will never leave nor forsake us, so I know, HE is still in control!!! :-)
