The following quote has been attributed to founding father George Washington by many sources, however, I have been unable to find a direct source in any of his writings or speeches. This Washington quote did not show up in writing until after his death, being quoted in biographies from several sources. Given that it cannot be found from original sources, we cannot be sure that it was actually said by Washington himself.
Although we do not know for sure if George Washington was the source of this quote or not, we do know from other original sources that he was a president who unabashedly proclaimed his dependence, and our country’s dependence, on God. Unfortunately our leaders and country have fallen far away from the early principles that made the American dream possible.
“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible”. – George Washington (February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799) – Maybe Not
Today we are seeing the truth of this statement unfold before our very eyes. Our country has fallen prey to those who seek power for their own benefit, those who worship themselves over God. Those who only mention God and the Bible to score political points in order to move their own agendas forward.
The United States has entered a new period as a country in decline, and that decline is now accelerating. Those who are now governing this nation are doing so without God and without the principles of the Bible, and they are proving everyday how impossible it is to rightly govern without them.
This is NOT a political blog, but it is a forum where the principles and wisdom of the Bible are shared and discussed. Our hope is that our readers would embrace such principles and live Godly lives. Our hope is that our nation would return to God by putting men and women of faith and principle in office. And like the prophet said:
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land”. – 2 Chronicles 7:14 (New King James Version)
It is our hope at Bible or Not that new leaders would rise up to rightly govern this great nation, with God and the Bible. And we know the promises of God, and we know He is faithful and true.
