When the Righteous Are inAuthority
Proverbs 29:2; Psalm 46:1; Job 34:30
2-15-21, Henry M. Morris, PhD -- Many can remember when the nation observed holidays on both the birthday of President Lincoln (February 12) and that of President Washington (February 22). These two men were widely revered as our nation’s greatest presidents and their birthdays were patriotic holidays. However, modern [so called] intellectuals have been actively tarnishing their reputations, while our people have become more and more enamored of recreation, so this situation has now “devolved” into a three-day holiday theoretically honoring all presidents.
We are thankful, of course, that most of our presidents have indeed been God-fearing men deserving to be so honored. None were atheists and almost all have professed belief in Christ and the Bible. God surely led our forefathers when they formed our constitutional republic.
Up until now Christianity has thrived in our country as a result, and we have become acknowledged everywhere as the world’s greatest nation.
Sadly, severe signs of deterioration are abounding and Christians need to pray to rid the nation of it's corruption and depravity. If Paul were here today, he would surely repeat (and slightly rephrase) his first-century admonition to young pastor Timothy: “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For [presidents], and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:1-3). Source
