I would like to briefly comment on a letter from Robert A. Yost in your issue of 7-22 A.D. 2004.
Robert, the "needle's eye" verse you mentioned is Luke 18:25, "For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 26. And they that heard it said Who then can be saved. 27. And He (Jesus) said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." Also, Smith's Bible Dictionary defines "Needle's Eye" as "Supposed to mean a narrow door, or gateway, too low for a camel to pass through standings. They are unloaded, and forced to creep through on their knees." 1 Tim. 6:10 says "For the Love of money is the root of all evil ..." There are numerous other verses that confirm that our Loving Father wants His children to prosper.
The whole constitutional fabric of America is permeated with the teachings of the divine Word. The Bible belongs to us politically because its acceptance as the Word of God created the people who fought and erected and preserved the nation as the United States of America.
Our country is one of the consummate fruits of the Bible. The great principles which underlie our government are Bible principles, so distinctly so that our welfare and our destiny are involved in our loyalty to them.
Without the Bible there could have been no such nation as America. Without the Bible America cannot exist. (Robert G. Lee, D.D.)
