Exploring the Faith of America’s Presidents

Exploring the Faith of America’s Presidents

$1.99$9.95

“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. ~ Theodore Teddy Roosevelt, 26th U.S. President.

Exploring the Faith of America’s Presidents is a brief summary of how faith and religion shaped the presidency America. With quotes and short excerpts, this controversial book is a provocative conversation starter. For example, is America’s foundation built upon biblical principles?

It is said that in April of 1775, when British Major Pitcairn demanded that a group of colonial Minutemen lay down their arms “in the name of George the Sovereign King of England,” one of the rebel fighters proclaimed, “We recognize no sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus!” The battle cry of America’s revolutionaries became, “No King but King Jesus!”

Does that mean all of America’s Founding Fathers were Christians or even believed in God? Does it mean that all American presidents proclaimed Jesus as Lord and Savior? Not only is it impossible for us to judge anyone else’s heart, it’s irrelevant. The important point is that the foundation of American government is clearly based on the biblical principles of freedom, equality, justice, and the moral laws found in the Ten Commandments.

Perhaps Benjamin Franklin summed it up best. “I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth— that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that ‘except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it.” ~ Benjamin Franklin, signer to both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution
