An excerpt for “In God We Still Trust” By Dr. Richard G. Lee

Benjamin Franklin Butler (1795-1858), US Attorney General under President Andrew Jackson (1833-1838), Knew the value of God’s word:

“…Not only does the Bible inculate (Instill), with sanctions of the highest import, a system of the highest morality, but in the person and character of our Blessed Savior it exhibits a tangible illustration of that system.

In Him we have set before us … a model of feeling and action, adapted to all times, places, and circumstances; and combing so much of wisdom, benevolence, and holiness, that none can fathom its sublimity; and yet, presented in a form so simple, that even a child may be made to understand and taught to love it.”

 Note: “… that even a child may be made to understand and taught to love it.”

“See what kind of love the father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” (1 John 3:10

Yours in Christ,
