It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible || George Washington
We recognize no sovereign but God, and no king but Jesus! || John Adams
The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principals of Christianity... I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God || John Adams
“[July 4th] ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty || John Adams
God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?

I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel || Benjamin Franklin
Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure...are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments || Charles Carroll
Those who deny freedom to others do not deserve it for themselves.
It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, 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 || Patrick Henry
No one has the right to do as he pleases, except he please to do right.
Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers || John Jay

God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever || Thomas Jefferson
Liberty is a thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others.
We’ve staked our future on our ability to follow the Ten Commandments with all of our heart || James Madison
To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys... Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all blessings which flow from them, must fall with them || Jedediah Morse
