The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.

—Noah Webster

 

Men may induce to abandon their old religion and to adopt a new one, but they never can remain long free from all religion. Take away one object of worship and they will soon attach themselves to another. If unhappily they lose the knowledge of true God, they will set up gods of their own invention or receive them from others.

—Archibald Alexander

 

The first and almost the only Book deserving of universal attention is the Bible.

—John Quincy Adams

 

It was the Lord who put into my mind (I could feel His Hand upon me) to sail from here to the Indies. All who heard of my project rejected it with laughter, ridiculing me. There is no question that my inspiration was from the Holy Spirit, because He comforted me with rays of marvelous illumination from the Holy Scriptures, encouraging me continually to press forward…. No one should fear to undertake any task in the name of our Savior, if it is just and if the intention is purely for His Holy service…O what a gracious Lord, Who desires that people should perform for Him those things for which He holds Himself responsible! Day and night, moment by moment, everyone should express to Him their most devoted gratitude.

—Christopher Columbus
explaining his voyage to the New World

 

The smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained.

—George Washington
