It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially
a Bible-reading people. The principals of the
Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.
- Horace Greeley (Editor)
That Book is the rock on which our Republic rests.
- President Andrew Jackson
In all my perplexities and distresses,
the Bible has never failed to give me
light and strength. - Gen. Robert E. Lee
Bible reading is an education in itself.
- Lord Tennyson (Poet)
So great is my veneration for the Bible
that the earlier my children begin to read
it the more confident will be my hope that
they will prove useful citizens of their country
and respectable members of society. I have for
many years made it a practice to read through
the Bible once every year. - President John
The existence of the Bible, as a Book for the
people, is the greatest benefit which the human
race has ever experienced. Every attempt to
belittle it is a crime against humanity.
- Immanuel Kant (Philosopher)
The New Testament is the very best Book
that ever or ever will be known in the world.
- Charles Dickens (Author)
All human discoveries seem to be made only
for the purpose of confirming more and more
strongly the truths contained in the
Sacred Scriptures. - Sir William Herschel (Astronomer)
There are more sure marks of authenticity
in the Bible than in any profane history.
- Sir Isaac Newton (Scientist)
Let mental culture go on advancing,
let the natural sciences progress in
even greater extent and depth, and
the human mind widen itself as much
as it desires; beyond the elevation
and moral culture of Christianity,
as it shines forth in the Gospels,
it will not go. - Goethe (Author)
I have known ninety-five of the world's great
men in my time, and of these eight-seven were
followers of the Bible. The Bible is stamped with
a Specialty of Origin, and an immeasurable
distance separates it from all competitors.
- W.E. Gladstone (Prime Minister)
Whatever merit there is in anything that I have
written is simply due to the fact that when I was
a child my mother daily read me a part of the Bible
and daily made me learn a part of it by heart.
- John Ruskin (art critic and social commentator)
The Bible has been the Magna Carta of the poor
and oppressed. The human race is not in a position
to dispense with it.
- Thomas Huxley (Author & Scientist)
The whole hope of human progress is suspended
on the ever growing influence of the Bible.
- W.H. Seward (Secretary of State)
America was born a Christian nation.
America was born to exemplify that
devotion to the elements of righteousness,
which are derived from the revelations
of Holy Scriptures. Part of the destiny
of Americans lies in their daily perusal
of this great book of revelations. That
if they would see America free and pure
they will make their own spirits free and
pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit.
- President Woodrow Wilson
For Christians, the life and death of Jesus are the ultimate
expressions of love, and the supreme demonstrations of
God's mercy, faithfulness, and redemption. Since Christ's
miraculous Resurrection on Easter, more than 2,000 years
ago, Christians have expressed joy and gratitude for this
wondrous sacrifice and for God's promise of freedom for
the oppressed, healing for the brokenhearted, and salvation.
- President George W. Bush
It cannot be emphasized too strongly
or too often that this great nation was
founded, not by religionists, but by
Christians; not on religions, but on
the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this
very reason peoples of other faiths
have been afforded asylum, prosperity,
and freedom of worship here.
