Your Bible—Read It Every Day (3)

Your Bible—Read It Every Day (3)

“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.”      Isa 40:8 NIV

Let’s look once more at what some of the most notable people in history have had to say about the Bible. Matthew Arnold: “To the Bible men will return because they cannot do without it. The true God is, and must be pre-eminently the God of the Bible, the eternal, who makes for righteousness from whom Jesus came forth, and whose spirit governs the course of humanity.” George Washington: “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” Thomas Jefferson: “The Bible is the cornerstone of liberty.” Horace Greeley: “It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible reading people.” Patrick Henry: “This is a book worth more than all other books which were ever printed.” William McKinley: “The more profoundly we study this wonderful book and the more closely we observe its divine precepts, the better citizens we will become and the higher will be the destiny of our nation.” J. Edgar Hoover: “Inspiration has been the keynote ofAmerica’s phenomenal growth. Inspiration has been the backbone ofAmerica’s greatness. Inspiration has been the difference between defeat and victory inAmerica’s wars. And this inspiration has come from faith in God, faith in the teachings of the Sermon on the Mount, and faith in the belief that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God. Reading it within the family circle is more important today than ever before. It draws the family together into a more closely knit unit. It gives each member a faith to live by.” Your Bible—read it every day!
