One Nation Under God - Ronald Reagan

At a prayer breakfast on August 23, 1984, President Ronald Reagan said,

"You know, if we look back through history to all those great civilizations, those great nations that rose up to even world dominance and then deteriorated, declined, and fell, we find they all had one thing in common. One of the significant forerunners of their fall was their turning away from their God. Without God, there is no virtue, because there's no prompting of the conscience. Without God, we're mired in the material, that flat world that tells us only what the senses perceive. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure.

"If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."

There are no better words ever spoken from any other president then these words. We see what is going on now because of our present President. He is not a Godly man and therefore we are a nation going under. We need GOD!!
