What Do The Presidents Say About The Bible?

This being an election year I thought that a reminder concerning our Christian heritage would be appropriate. So I compiled a list of presidential quotes about the Bible from many of the Presidents of the United States.

Please do your part to remind people about our heritage by sharing these quotes with your friends and family and those who are on your social networking sites. Between all of us, we can still turn the tide of secularism in this country.

Quotes About The Bible From U.S. Presidents

“Do not let any one claim to be a true American if they ever attempt to remove religion from politics.” – First President of the United States – George Washington

“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” – Fourth President of the United States & founding Father – James Madison

“That I am not a member of any Christian church is true; but I have never denied the truth of the Scriptures; and I have never spoken with intentional disrespect of religion in general, or of any denomination of Christians in particular….I do not think I could myself be brought to support a man for office whom I knew to be an open enemy of, or scoffer at, religion.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Hold fast to the Bible as the sheet-anchor of your liberties; write its precepts in your hearts and practice them in your lives. To the influence of this book we are indebted for all the progress made in true civilization, and to this we must look as our guide in the future. Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.” – Ulysses S. Grant

The whole inspiration of our civilization springs from the teachings of Christ and the lessons of the prophets. To read the Bible for these fundamentals is a necessity of American life. – Herbert Hoover

“A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“Of the many influences that have shaped the United States into a distinctive nation and people, none may be said to be more fundamental and enduring than the Bible. ” – Ronald Reagan

“I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good of the Savior of the world is communicated to us through the Book.” – Abraham Lincoln

“When you have read the Bible, you know it is the word of God, because it is the key to your heart, your own happiness, and your own duty. ” – Woodrow Wilson

“I have always said and always will say that the studious perusal of the Sacred Volume will make better citizens, better fathers, better husbands… the Bible makes the best people in the world. ” – Thomas Jefferson

“The fundamental basis of this nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teaching we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days. If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in the right for anybody except the state.” – Harry S. Truman

“The study of the Bible is a post-graduate course in the richest library of human experience.” – Herbert Hoover

“The Bible is the Rock on which this Republic rests.” – Andrew Jackson

“My custom is to read four or five chapters of the Bible every morning immediately after rising… It seems to me the most suitable manner of beginning the day… It is an invaluable and inexhaustible mine of knowledge and virtue.” – John Quincy Adams

“Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.” – Ronald Reagan

“I have a very simple thing to ask of you. I ask every man and woman in this audience that from this day on they will realize that part of the destiny of America lies in their daily perusal of this great Book (the Bible).” – Woodrow Wilson

WILL YOU JOIN ME AND THE MANY PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES IN DAILY BIBLE READING?

I am asking all of you to join me in what President Woodrow Wilson asked of us.

Will you join me from this day on in daily Bible reading?

The Bible and its place in our society is under attack.

This is in part because believers in Jesus have not openly and publicly modeled a habit of daily Bible reading. It is time for that sin of omission to stop.

So will you join with me in making it a habit of daily Bible reading either at work or at school or at least in the privacy of your own home?

If you are willing.

Leave me a comment below.

Blessings!

Pastor Duke
