Wiser Words From Wiser Men

USA Flag

 

After my recent blog about the USA president’s foolhardy speech of arrogance and blasphemy, many of you were intrigued as to what he actually said. (You can Google ‘Obama Mocks Bible’ and videos will show up on the first page)

I didn’t really want to repeat such erroneous, evil discourse on my patch. Nevertheless, here it is at the bottom of this article, transcribed exactly as orated. The only thing omitted is the sarcastic tone that went along with his words but you can view it for yourself.

Immediately below, are the words of some founding fathers/early presidents, of whom we have to thank for the American nation being the prosperous, protected and blessed country that it was. As you will see, the attitudes of these men are in stark contrast to Obama’s and therefore reaped beneficial results. This made it obvious even to the most unbelieving Atheist, that the protective hand of God was upon America.

John Adams
2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

“Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God.What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”

(Diary and biography of John Adams vol. 3 page 9)
Thomas Jefferson
3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

“God who gave us life, gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever…

(Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, p. 237.)

Samuel Adams
Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Father of the American Revolution

“And as it is our duty to extend our wishes to the happiness of the great family of man, I conceive that we cannot better express ourselves than by humbly supplicating the Supreme Ruler of the world that the rod of tyrants may be broken to pieces, and the oppressed made free again; that wars may cease in all the earth, and that the confusions that are and have been among nations may be overruled by promoting and speedily bringing on that holy and happy period when the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ may be everywhere established, and all people everywhere willingly bow to the sceptre of Him who is Prince of Peace.”

(As Governor of Massachusetts, Proclamation of a Day of Fast, March 20, 1797.)

John Quincy Adams
6th U.S. President

“The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made ‘bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God’ (Isaiah 52:10).”

(Life of John Quincy Adams, p. 248.)

Roger Sherman
Signer of the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution

“I believe that there is one only living and true God, existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the same in substance equal in power and glory. That the scriptures of the old and new testaments are a revelation from God, and a complete rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him. That God has foreordained whatsoever comes to pass, so as thereby he is not the author or approver of sin.

(The Life of Roger Sherman, pp. 272-273.)
Benjamin Rush
Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution

“The gospel of Jesus Christ prescribes the wisest rules for just conduct in every situation of life. Happy they who are enabled to obey them in all situations!”

(The Autobiography of Benjamin Rush, pp. 165-166.)

Alexander Hamilton
Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution

“I have carefully examined the evidences of the Christian religion, and if I was sitting as a juror upon its authenticity I would unhesitatingly give my verdict in its favor. I can prove its truth as clearly as any proposition ever submitted to the mind of man.”

(Famous American Statesmen, p. 126.)

Patrick Henry
Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

(The Trumpet Voice of Freedom: Patrick Henry of Virginia, p. iii.)
“The Bible … is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed.”

(Sketches of the Life and Character of Patrick Henry, p. 402).

Abraham Lincoln  16th President

In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in it.

(Reply to Loyal Colored People of Baltimore upon Presentation of a Bible on September 7, 1864 – CWAL VII:542 )

Brothers and sisters, you will see from below that every verse referred to has been taken out of context. It’s like skimming through a law manual for 2 hours then expecting to be given a job as an attorney.

Barak Obama – word for word transcript:

“…And even if we did have only Christians in our midst – if we expelled every non Christian from the United States of America, who’s Christianity would we teach in the schools?

Would it be *James Dobson or (? can’t make out the name)
“And which passages of scripture should guide our public policy?
Should we go with Leviticus which suggests slavery’s okay? And that eating shellfish is an abomination?

Or could we go with Deuteronomy which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?

Or should we stick to the Sermon on the Mount, a passage that is so radical, that it’s doubtful that our defence department would survive it’s application. (Arrogant laugh) Folks haven’t been reading the bible.”

———————————————————-

*James Dobson. Founder of Focus On the Family. A man who, through the study of the scriptures has helped millions of marriages stay together, his advice has turned relationships around from divorce to forgiveness and restoration. He has shown parents how to successfully raise their child, nurture them and bring them into adulthood as secure loved human beings. He has such a passion for children that if more parents took his godly advice, there would not be any child sexual abuse, paedophiles, infant pornography, human trafficking, women selling their babies for sex, broken families, wounded hearts, girls prostituting themselves as a replacement for daddy, so many adults on depression medication, under-age pregnancies, over-crowded prisons, even more over-crowded psychiatric hospitals and teenage suicides.

You know, it is strange how when Christians stand up for their faith and their God, they are seen as closed minded – but, deep down, everybody knows that if Obama had spoken out like that against Mohammed and the Koran, he’d have been assassinated within a week.
