2017 THE YEAR OF THE BIBLE!

Conscience bound by God's divinely inspired, inerrant Word, the Bible, we do hereby publicly proclaim that:

Whereas, our nation was founded on teachings drawn from the Bible and,

Whereas, 207 years later President Ronald Reagan affirmed our nation's continuing reliance on the Bible by proclaiming 1983 "The Year of the Bible" and,

Whereas, by placing restrictions on the presence of the 10 Commandments and passing laws which are in violation of the Bible, our government has changed the course of the nation and,

Whereas, by moving our nation away from its as founded Bible based course, the government is placing our nation's well-being in jeopardy (Psalm 127:1)*. Therefore, be it

Resolved, that Ascension Lutheran Church, in an effort to restore our nation to its as founded Biblical course, publicly proclaims "2017 The Year of the BIBLE"

its builders labor in vain.

What does God say?

II Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

I Thessalonians 5:21

Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.

Matthew 22:21

Jesus said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."

Acts 5:29

"We must obey God rather than men!"

Ephesians 6:13

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground.

Ephesians 6:17

Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God.

I Thessalonians 2:2

We had previously suffered and been insulted in Philippi, as you know, but with the help of our God we dared to tell you His Gospel in spite of strong opposition.

What did our nation's founding fathers say?

President George Washington:

"It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God and humbly implore His protection and favor."

President John Adams:

The nation's founding "connected in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."

President Andrew Jackson:

"The Bible is the rock on which our Republic rests."

WE URGENTLY INVITE YOU TO ADD YOUR 2017 YEAR OF THE BIBLE PROCLAMATION TO OURS!

WE BELIEVE OUR NATION NEEDS IT.

DON'T YOU?
