I’m back looking at the Bible again. And by now you can probably quote my list of accolades about the Bible with your eyes closed. (Try it – if you can’t get it right check the final sentence in this blog posting to see how many you got)
It is no wonder that the Bible is the most Endorsed book in human history. A book of such extensive significance as the Bible holds would certainly be accorded many accolades and would be credited by all manner of people, young and old, from around the world and through the centuries.
The Bible has been endorsed by prince and commoner. Queen Victoria of England asserted that the entire British Empire stood on the teachings of the Bible. Founding Fathers and Presidents of the United States of America gave whole-hearted affirmation of the importance of the Bible. George Washington said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” French Emperor, Napoleon, said the Bible surpassed all other books.
Ghengis Khan, who once ruled China, apparently called for the church to send missionaries to teach the Bible to his nation. The Christians were slow to respond and so Khan passed the call to Buddhist monks, who turned the nation toward Buddhism.
In more recent history men of science declared that it was their confidence in the Bible and what it taught that led them to expect laws of nature and scientific principles on which the world could be understood. Most of today’s scientific facts came from the work of men and women who ardently believed the Bible to be the accurate and reliable basis for all understanding. Scientists from Kepler, Pascal & Boyle to Pasteur, Einstein and Fleming, and through to many thousands of scientists today, happily endorse the Bible as the cornerstone of their life and beliefs.
Recent history’s political and social leaders have also given keen endorsement to the Bible, including Sir Winston Churchill and USA President Ronald Reagan. President Reagan claimed that, “Of the many influences that have shaped the United States into a distinctive nation and people, none may be said to be more fundamental and enduring than the Bible.”
The Bible is the most Enduring, Authoritative, Profound, Resilient, Enlightening, Impactful, Endorsed and Significant book in all of human history.
