    While the U.S.A. was founded by Christians, today the U.S.A. is a pluralistic society.

    At the theological level we are talking about eternity and final authority.
    At the political level we are talking about time and temporal authority.

    KJV Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them,
    Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's,
    and to God the things that are God's.
    And they marvelled at him.

    THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
    1983 YEAR OF THE BIBLE
    JOINT RESOLUTION OF THE U.S. SENATE S.J. 165
    AND THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES H.J. 487


    WHEREAS THE BIBLE, THE WORD OF GOD, HAS MADE A UNIQUE
    CONTRIBUTION IN SHAPING THE UNITED STATES AS A DISTINCTIVE
    AND BLESSED NATION AND PEOPLE.

    WHEREAS DEEPLY HELD RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS SPRINGING FROM
    THE HOLY SCRIPTURES LED TO THE EARLY SETTLEMENT OF OUR NATION.

    WHEREAS BIBLICAL TEACHING INSPIRED CONCEPTS OF CIVIL
    GOVERNMENT CONTAINED IN OUR DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
    AND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

    WHEREAS MANY OF OUR GREAT NATIONAL LEADERS, AMONG THEM
    PRESIDENTS WASHINGTON, JACKSON, LINCOLN AMD WILSON,
    PAID TRIBUTE TO THE SURPASSING INFLUENCE OF THE BIBLE
    IN OUR COUNTRY’S DEVELOPMENT, AS IN THE WORDS OF PRESIDENT
    JACKSON THAT THE BIBLE IS THE “ROCK UPON WHICH OUR REPUBLIC RESTS”.

    WHEREAS THE HISTORY OF OUR NATIONS CLEARLY ILLUSTRATES
    THE VALUE OF VOLUNTARY APPLYING THE TEACHING OF THE SCRIPTURES
    IN THE LIVES OF INDIVIDUALS, FAMILIES AND SOCIETIES.

    WHEREAS THIS NATION NOW FACES GREAT CHALLENGES THAT WILL TEST
    THIS NATION AS IT HAS NEVER BEEN TESTED BEFORE.
    WHEREAS THAT RENEWING OUR KNOWLEDGE OF AND FAITH IN GOD
    THROUGH HOLY SCRIPTURE CAN STRENGTHEN US AS A NATION
    AND A PEOPLE.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, RONALD REAGAN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
    OF AMERICA, IN RECOGNITION OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS AND INFLUENCE
    OF THE BIBLE ON OUR REPUBLIC AND OUR PEOPLE, DO HEREBY PROCLAIM
    1983 THE YEAR OF THE BIBLE IN THE UNITED STATES.

    I ENCOURAGE ALL CITIZENS, EACH IN HIS OR HER OWN WAY,
    TO REEXAMINE AND REDISCOVERING IT’S PRICELESS
    AND TIMELESS MESSAGE.

    FEBRUARY 3, 1983, 9:00 am-est
