The Bible and American Presidents
A nation is made great by its people and its values, particularly by its leaders and the values they embrace. It has been said that a nation rises and falls on its leadership. Throughout the Bible, when ancient Israel had a king who reverenced God and held the Word of God in high esteem, the nation prospered. When they had a bad king, life within the nation was full of misery.
American history is vividly clear that a faith in God and a reverence for the Bible provided the basis for the founding of our nation. That same reverence for God by many of our presidents had had a profound impact on the greatness of our nation. One fact is undeniable: the Bible has been one of the greatest influences on America's presidents.
