CHURCHILL: “According to Holy Writ” – Part 1

This entry is part 7 of 12 in the series GOD & CHURCHILL: The Evidence Exposed

Winston S. Churchill with President Roosevelt, on board HMS Prince of Wales

Over the past few posts I presented the evidence of Churchill’s prophesy at 16 years old. CHURCHILL: “I avow my faith” – highlights the first time that we really see the hand of God working in Great-Grandpapa’s life. “London will be attacked…I shall be in command of the defences of London…and it will fall to me to save the Capital and save the Empire.” – Without the interference of “that High Power” Churchill referred to, I demonstrated that his words could not have come to pass exactly as he had spoken in 1891.

The evidence of God’s intervention in Great-Grandpapa’s life was only the starting point of my research into the spiritual side of Sir Winston Churchill. My aim in writing God and Churchill was not to prove the existence of God, but rather to explore whether Great-Grandpapa had a faith in God, and whether the God he believed in did interfere, as he maintained, throughout his life.

God does not force Himself upon a person but rather offers opportunity for us to open our eyes, see Him, and acknowledge Him. Therefore, in order to prove that Great-Grandpapa had a faith in God, I felt the place to start would be to review what he himself professed to believe.

Together over the next few posts we will be exploring exactly what Great-Grandpapa claimed to believe.

What did Churchill believe about the Bible?
Was it merely a glorified history book that was written thousands of years ago and has little relevance today, or did he believe it to be the literal word of God?

Did the Bible influence Churchill?
Did he live out in private what he purported in public to believe? Or was it just words on a page that he would draw upon to encourage himself and others to keep fighting despite the odds against a general Allied victory?

What were Churchill’s thoughts on Moses?
Who was Moses to Churchill, and in his opinion was the story of the Exodus fact or fiction?

Did Churchill ever acknowledge the existence of God?
Or were his references to God and his Biblical quotes in speeches merely political rhetoric to gain the support of the British people?

Who was Jesus to Winston Churchill?
