God & The Presidency: The Faith of Dwight D Eisenhower 

I was a young man when Eisenhower was President. Even those four years of active duty in the US Navy (1954-1958), he was our President. It was a grand time with many jobs and peace, although there was that “Cold War” problem with the Russians and East Germany. Anyway, I always thought he was our best President for our century. Here is a quote from him which seems very powerful and very Christian:

In his in 1953 address ‘The Chance for Peace’, he said: “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children…This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron…. Is there no other way the world may live?”
