Are you ready to see what presidents of the past had to say about faith, God and the Bible? Here is your chance to become inspired. President Obama siad in 2008: "I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian. I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life." Jimmy Carter, who is a Sunday school teacher shared his thoughts. "I suggest that when you get home, you get your Bible if you've got one -- I'm sure you have -- turn to Exodus 20 and read the Third Commandment. ... Well, don't forget now when you get home, read the Bible, okay? How many of you will look it up? Okay. Keep your promise."We will look at more quotes from our leaders of the past, so get ready."

And like Carter asks, get your Bibles out and get ready.
