Whether you’re a Christian or not, the truth is undeniable. For hundreds of years, the Bible has played a supreme role in shaping the moral standards of Western Civilization. Yet in less than half a century, we’ve pushed the Bible out of just about every aspect of society without considering either the consequences or what might take its place.
Noah Webster once said, “In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed… No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people…
“When I speak of the Christian religion as the basis of government… I mean the primitive Christianity in its simplicity as taught by Christ and His apostles, consisting of a belief in the being, perfections, and government of God; in the revelation of His will to men, as their supreme rule of action; in man’s… accountability to God for his conduct in this life; and in the indispensable obligation of all men to yield entire obedience to God’s commands in the moral law and the Gospel.”
