The LIGHTHOUSE Bed and Breakfast
In light of the recent Supreme Court decision overturning sodomy laws, I ask you to join me in prayer for our nation. The following article by Daniel Webster reminds us once again that obeying God's Word is our only hope.
“If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will prosper. But if we and our posterity neglect the instructions and authority in this Book, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overtake us and bury our glory in profound obscurity.
“This is the Book that inspired thousands of men and women to travel to the New World where they could live and worship God in freedom.
“This is the Book our forefathers drew upon for the great principles included in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
“This is the Book that the people of America—in every walk of life—have turned to for strength, for comfort and for guidance.
“This is the Book that is in every court of this broad land, a reminder of America's ideal of freedom and justice for all.
“This is the Book that its enemies burn—the Book they smear and fear, because it proclaims the dignity of the individual and teaches that all men are created in the image of God.
“America still needs the Bible! We need courage to face today's problems and divine wisdom to solve them, just as our forefathers did.
“Let this Book revive in us the spirit of our fathers to face tomorrow unafraid. Let us too turn to the Book that reveals the mind of God, His holinessHis love for lost sinners and His salvation through Jesus Christ.”
