9-How important has God in the bible been to the success and prosperity of our nation? how different might America be without this spiritual heritage? Can we continue to expect God to bless America, if we choose to forget God or not honor him?
Well there is no direct scientific evidence to suggest that God played any role in the prosperity and success of our nation. But, if not for the Christian moral values exhibited by our political and business leaders over the centuries, the country might have fallen apart into decadence and decay. To this extent, God has been a guiding force behind the unity, industry and humanity of our countrymen.
