Jesus and George Washington

Many in the United States try to separate the teachings of the Bible from government leaders. But a study of our founding fathers reveal a totally different opinion and outlook. One is the very first POTUS , George Washington. The following are a few quotes that reveal the heart of our first president. Without question it is easy to say President Washington would agree completely that leader of the government should be led from the truths of God’s Word.


Early on in the Revolutionary War George Washington issued the following order. “That the troops may have an opportunity of attending public worship, as well as to take some rest after the great fatigue they have gone through, the general in future excuses them from fatigue duty on Sundays, except at the shipyards or on special occasions, until further orders. We can have but little hope of the blessing of Heaven on our arms if we insult it by our impiety and folly.”


About our educational system

“What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ.”


What all governments should acknowledge

“It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors.”


A prayer offered by President Washington

“Oh, eternal and everlasting God, direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the Lamb and purge my heart by Thy Holy Spirit. Daily, frame me more and more in the likeness of Thy son, Jesus Christ. That living in Thy fear, and dying in Thy favor, I may in thy appointed time obtain the resurrection of the justified unto eternal life. Bless, O Lord, the whole race of mankind and let the world be filled with the knowledge of Thee and Thy son, Jesus Christ.”
