in plenty, in times of challenge or times of calm, we always have reasons to be
thankful. America is a land of abundance, prosperity, and hope... This
Thanksgiving, we again give thanks for all of our blessings and for the freedoms
we enjoy every day. Our Founders thanked the Almighty and humbly sought His
wisdom and blessings. May we always live by that same trust, and may God
continue to watch over and bless the United States of America.

to Sunday Schools no matter what their denomination is: Hold fast to the Bible
as the sheet anchor of your liberties; write its precepts in your heart, and

We must not build on the sands of an uncertain and
everchanging science . . . but upon the rock of inspired Scriptures.

This book [the Bible] had to be written by
one of three people: good men, bad men or God. It couldn't have been written by
good men because they said it was inspired by the revelation of God. Good men

and as it is He who gives
it, why should we be afraid? His unspeakable gift in His beloved Son is the
ground of no doubtful hope.
