Founders' Bible article John 8:32, page 1631. Excerpt from Clarence Manion: "Look closely at these self-evident truths, these imperishable articles of American faith upon which all our government is firmly based. First and foremost is the existence of God. Next comes the truth that all men are equal in the sight of God. Third is the fact of God's great gift of unalienable rights to every person on earth. Then follows the true and single purpose of all American government, namely, too preserve and protect these God-made rights of God-made man."

Prayer Point: Pray for Bishop Harry Jackson and others like him, who are committed to healing the racial divide in our country Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
