It Is Impossible to Enslave a Bible-Reading People

Horace Greeley (1811-1872) was the founding editor of the New York Tribune. He was an influential American journalist and political leader. He said, “It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.”

The current events of the day show this is certainly true. The American People are refusing to be enslaved by their government, and live in a Socialist state.

The Liberals and Socialists of America were aware of this connection between freedom and the Bible. They thought that the first step to enslave us would be to take away our Bibles. They have spent the last fifty years trying to remove God and the Bible from our culture.

The Bible is banned from our public schools. The Ten Commandments have been excluded from schools, and some local courthouses. That is ridiculous when you consider that the Ten Commandments are a permanent part of the US Supreme Court building. But the American people are still holding on to “their guns and their religion.”

Everything the Liberals, the Secularists, and the Socialists have done has come to nothing. They don’t know they are fighting against God and have no chance of winning. They have limited themselves to the wisdom of men, and that doesn’t amount to much.

Jesus said in John 8:31-32, “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” God’s word has made us free and keeps us free.  We are the most free people on earth and we intend to stay that way

The Liberals may have removed the Bible from our schools, but they cannot remove it from our hearts and minds. We will pass it on to our children and our grandchildren.

The United States has always been the land of the free. Americans will never surrender the freedoms guaranteed us by our Constitution. We are the envy of the world, and the most prosperous nation the world has ever seen.

The United States is most definitely a Christian nation. That is how we started and that is who we are. According to the Rasmussen Survey, 63% of Americans believe that the Bible is the word of God, and 79% believe that Jesus rose from the dead.
