A nation is made great by its people and the principles they embrace. In addition, a nation remains great by its leaders and the statutes they enact. It has been stated that a nation rises and falls on the condition of its leadership. While others, like my Dad often said that a nation is only as strong as its families. In the Bible, it is noted when ancient Israel was blessed with a king who reverenced God and held the word of God in high esteem, the nation prospered. When they had a bad king who did not respect the word of God, or did not govern on behalf of the best interests of the nation, there was much misery accompanied by economic hardship.
In our own republic we have endured the misery that comes with eight years of over taxation, regulation and an onslaught of laws that go against the grain of maintaining a high moral standard. In the year since the inception of the Trump administration, our republic has experienced measurable increases in economic growth and respect from many leaders from around the world.
For you never Trumpers" who believe he is a paragon of evil, you may be shocked to learn that President Trump has accepted Christ. In addition, unlike the previous Obama administration, President Trump is working diligently to improve the quality of life in our nation and standing in the world. Is Mr. Trump perfect? No way Jose. But neither are you or even the great King David of ancient Israel. But despite his flaws, King David sincerely loved God very deeply and sought to be a good king over Israel. That is why God himself called King David, a man after His own heart.
I believe the President Trump loves both God and the United States of America and will historically be judged to be a good, or possibly great president. American history is vividly clear that a faith in God and a reverence for His living word provided the basis for the founding of this republic. That same reverence for God by many of our presidents has had a profound impact upon the greatness of our nation. One truth is undeniable: The Bible has been one of the greatest influences on America’s presidents.
“The first and almost the only book deserving of universal attention is the Bible. I speak as a man of the world… and I say to you, “Search the scriptures.”: John Quincy Adams, Sixth President.
“The strength of our country is the strength of our country is the strength of its religious convictions. The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country.: Calvin Coolidge, 30th President.
“Inside the Bibles pages 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 for our nation. The Bible can touch our hearts, order our minds, and refresh our souls: Ronald Reagan 40th President. President Trump and his family continue to endure the onslaught of evil unrelenting attacks from those dedicated to literally destroying America from within. Their vehicles driving their evil mission are open borders, government school indoctrination, and the elimination of high moral standards. However, I believe that America will soon be reborn and experience a new era of greatness and fulfill her manifest destiny as a light of liberty and conduit of God’s unyielding love and guidance. May God bless President Trump, that he will follow Providential guidance in the valiant effort to make America great again.
