An excerpt from “In God we still Trust” by Dr. Richard G. Lee
A philanthropist later in life, Samuel Colgate (1822-1897) was the American manufacturer whose industriousness resulted in the Colgate-Palmolive Company. Clearly, he recognized Jesus as God’s Son and the value of the written Word:
The only spiritual light in the world comes through Jesus Christ and the inspired Book; redemption and forgiveness of sin alone through Christ. Without His presence and the teachings of the Bible, we would be enshrouded in moral darkness and despair.
The condition of those nations without a Christ, contrasted with those where Christ is accepted, reveals so marked a difference that no arguments are needed. It is an object lesson so plain that it can be seen and understood by all. May “the earth be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”(Habakkuk 2:4)
What a difference our founders made in the future of this country by establishing our country under God’s Word.
Yours in Christ,
