As a redeemed child of God, I don't read the news too often, because it is so depressing, and because the Scripture teaches us to think about good, lovely and uplifting things, which I'll discuss more in a bit. If you're like me, once you start reading news stories, you can't stop reading them. It is called “click bait.” The newsmedia know better than anyone how to create alluring captive titles for news articles, which you just have to read. I admit that I find an interesting news story irresistible (and they know it). Thus, I read several dozen news stories today from the New York Daily News, which is rare for me. I was horrified about the tragic stories I read, which all shouted one truth to me loud and clear—THE HOLY BIBLE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE ANSWER!!!
It was 23rd U.S. President Benjamin Harris (1833-1901) who wisely said:
“If you take out of your statutes, your constitution, your family life all that is taken from the Sacred Book, what would there be left to bind society together?” —Benjamin Harrison, Twenty third President
President Harris was wise to realize that without the inspired Words of God (the Sacred Book), nothing remains to bind society together. That is exactly what has gone wrong in the United States! Mankind has always been sinful by nature and prone to wickedness; but when you remove the unchanging SACRED BOOK authored by God from the equation, there is nothing left but sinful human goodness, cruel human mercy, insane human rational, corrupt human justice and conditional human love. Ungodly critics like to find all the failures of Christianity, but the Church on its worst day is far better than the world on its best day! THE HOLY BIBLE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE ANSWER!!!
It was 33rd U.S. President Harry S. Truman (1884-1972, Pastor Jack Hyles' favorite president, who wisely said:
“The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and Saint Matthew, from Isaiah and Saint Paul…. If we don’t have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State!” —Harry Truman, Thirty third President
Our country's 32 U.S. President, Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945), wisely said:
“We cannot read the history of our rise and development as a nation without reckoning with the place the Bible has occupied in shaping the advances of the Republic. Where we have been the truest and most consistent in obeying its precepts, we have attained the greatest measure of contentment and prosperity.” —Franklin Roosevelt, Thirty second President
These strong leaders of our nation all understood the important of the inspired HOLY BIBLE to maintain stability and soundness in our American society. Lest you doubt the veracity of the preceding quotes from our leaders, and doubt what I say as a born-again Christian who fears God, consider the following horrific news stories that I found in today's news...
