Faithful Thinkers: A Quote For Independence Day

The latest photograph of President Lincoln. Ta...Image via WikipediaA lot of American atheists hold Abraham Lincoln and high regard. I don't think that this is a bad thing in the slightest. However, I wonder why the following quote Luke Nix posted is ignored.

"We have been preserved this many years in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown but we have forgotten the gracious hand that has preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us and we have vainly imagined in the deceitfulness of our hearts that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming grace, too proud to pray to the God Who has made us"- Abraham Lincoln

Things haven't gotten any better in our nation. I find it amazing that a man who dies 146 years ago could so accurately describe our culture today.
