    The Washington Monument stands as a lofty and inspiring tribute to our first president, George Washington. It is the anchor on the west end of the National Mall. Few people know that engraved on the metal cap to the monument, towering 555 feet above the ground are the words, "Praise be to God." In addition, several tribute blocks line the staircase, and they are inscribed with Bible verses: "Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not; for such is the Kingdom of God (Luke 18:16)," "Search the Scriptures (John 5:39; Acts 17:11)," and "Holiness unto the Lord (Exodus 28:36); 39:30; Zechariah 14:20).".

    who says that our forefathers did not have God in mind when we established and built this great nation.....IT IS BECAUSE THIS NATION WAS BUILT WITH A FIRM FOUNDATION OF CHRIST...THAT IT STILL STANDS TODAY...a nation built in sand, crumbles when the wind blows......

    At the Jefferson Memorial, God's name is mentioned numerous times, including the famous quote, 'God who gave us life, gave us liberty."

    At the Lincoln Memorial, words like "Nation under God," "Bible" and "prayer" are everywhere.

    In the Senate and House office buildings, there is a plaque that says "In God we trust."

    There's an abundance of "Biblical" data on the walls of the monument:

    # As you climb the steps inside the Washington Monument you will notice stones with inscriptions on them. Some of them are, "Search the Scriptures" – "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it" – "The memory of the just is blessed" – "Holiness to the Lord" – and the top which says "Praise be to God!"

    As well, the much more prevelant and active Masons. The ancient reference to Obolisks and their heavy influence on early beginnings of the USA -- it seems you can be a white woman, a black man, or a Catholic -- but if you are not a Christian, you might as well pack it up and go home. We've not gotten that far enlightened yet!

    On the 260-foot landing of the Washington Monument memorial stones quote

    Proverbs 10:7, - The memory of the righteous is blessed, But the name of the wicked will rot. (NASB)

    Proverb 22:6 - Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (KJV)

    and

    Luke 17:6 - And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. (KJV)
