...of the status and scriptural base for Israel at the time of David and Solomon is under-informed and not supported by real evidence. Also, it is not a granted fact that the reason America rose to greatness was b/c of a common faith in the bible, though you may choose to believe it is the case.
The bible is not "to blame" for our current situation, nor is it to be credited for any former "good" situation. It is an inanimate object. However, the PEOPLE who have foolishly used it, unexamined, as a justifying tool of policy (peace or war) ARE to credit or blame.
So much more could be said. But really -- the answer is "no," the bible is not to blame.
