Abstract:

In todays strategic leadership environment, rarely is the Bible considered a resource for providing insights to leaders for making effective decisions. Can the Bible provide relevant decision-making guidance to todays national leadership Especially since todays leadership has a propensity to take a more secular and humanistic approach to making decisions. This paper examines the strategic decisions, actions, and policies related to some notable historical events in the United States to determine if Biblical principles, particularly the Ten Commandments, have any correlation to the decision-making process and outcomes associated with the event. The historical events examined are the U.S. Civil Rights movement and associated court decisions and legislation, the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, the Watergate scandal, the end of the Cold War, the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the ENRON scandal, the financial crisis of 2007, the resignation of General Stanley McChrystal, the Rest and Recuperation Leave Program, cyber-bullying and the suicide of Megan Meier, and the Army Seven Core Values.
