Man of Faith


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

“We are never defeated unless we give up on God”.

 “The time has come to turn to God and reassert our trust in Him for the healing of America – our country is in need of and ready for a spiritual renewal”.

 “Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God”.

 “Without God, there is not virtue because there’s no prompting of the conscience. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under”.

“God’s miracles are to be found in nature itself; the wind and the waves, the wood that becomes a tree – all of these are explained biologically, but behind then is the hand of God”.

 “America was founded by people who believe that God was their rock of safety. I recognize we must be cautious in claiming that God is on our side, but I think it’s all right to keep asking if we’re on His side”.

“Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here is this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given Rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the People, with no powers of its own except those voluntary granted to it by the People”.

“Now I realize it is fashionable in some circles to believe that no one in government should encourage others to read the Bible. That we are told that we’ll violate the Constitutional separation of church and state established by the Founding Fathers… The First Amendment was not written to protect people and their laws from religious values. It was written to protect those values from government tyranny”.

“I learned from my father the value of hard work and ambition, and maybe a little something about telling a story. From my mother I learned the value of prayer”.

“I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living”.

 "Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant, and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”     

 “We seek a constitutional amendment to permit voluntary school prayer. God should never have been expelled from America’s classroom in the first place.”

“I was raised to believe that God has a plan for everyone and that seemingly random twists of fate are all a part of His plan.”

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

“The struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.”

“If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.”

“In raising and instructing our children, in providing personal and compassionate care for the elderly, in maintaining the spiritual strength of religious commitment among our people– in these and other ways, America’s families make immeasurable contributions to America’s well-being. Today, more than ever, it is essential that these contributions not be taken for granted and that each of us remember that the strength of our families is vital to the strength of our nation.”

 “My mother told me that everything in life happened for a purpose. She said all things were part of God's plan, even the most disheartening setbacks, and in the end, everything worked out for the best.”
