Great men believed in the Bible

Many today seek to suppress Jesus and the Bible, yet great men had wonderful comments concerning Jesus, the Lord of Life:

Herbert Hoover: “The whole of the inspirations of our civilization springs from the teachings of Christ and the lessons of the prophets. To read the Bible for these fundamentals is a necessity of America life.”

John Quincy Adams: “I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once a year. … It is an invaluable and inexhaustible mine of knowledge and virtue.”

Abraham Lincoln: “All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated through this Book; but for this Book we could not know right from wrong. All the things desirable to men are contained in it.”

Daniel Webster: “If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instruction and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us, and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”

Woodrow Wilson: “I am sorry for the men who do not read the Bible every day. I wonder why they deprive themselves of the strength and of the pleasure.”

Isaac Newton: “We account the Scriptures of God to be the most sublime philosophy. I find more sure marks of authority in the Bible than in any profane history whatever.”

Sir Walter Scott: “The most learned acute and diligent student cannot, in the longest life, obtain an entire knowledge of this one volume.”

Other notable men had great comments concerning Jesus. However, many seek to destroy Jesus and anything to do with him, because he is perfect good, and went about doing good; the world cannot tolerate such behavior.

To follow the God of the Bible is to acknowledge that there is only one God, and all others are false.
