God’s chosen Presidents
Leaders affect the lives of families far beyond their own ‘private life’. In the Bible story of Esther we are told of a king who was charged to put right his own household because there would be “no end of disrespect and discord” among the families of the kingdom if he failed to do so. In a day when reckless extramarital sexual activity is manifesting itself in our staggering rates of illegitimacy and divorce, now more than ever, America needs to be able to look to her First Family as role models of all that we have been and can be again.
Well said. He also reminded America of a forgotten verse in the Book of Proverbs, one that should sober us as we see the ripple effect dishonesty, and the manner in which lies can thoroughly corrupt a government. Proverbs 29:12 declares, “If a ruler listens to lies, all his officials become wicked.”
Thank you Vice President Pence. The words you wrote about Bill Clinton a generation ago still ring true today.
David French, a theologically literate man, pointedly concluding a Sunday “French Press” blog that outlines a much sounder and balanced view of “providential Presidents” than semi-literates Rick Perry and Nikki Haley were able to manage for Fox News and The 700 Club, respectively, and orders of magnitude better than the near-blasphemies of sycophants Eric Metaxas and Franklin Graham.
