Testimonies About the Bible
Following are a few statements about the Bible by America’s founding fathers and early political leaders:
Lewis Cass (1782-1866), U.S. Senator, Secretary of State under James Buchanan, Secretary of War under Andrew Jackson, governor of Michigan Territory. “God, in His providence, has given us a Book of His revealed will to be with us at the commencement of our career in this life and at its termination; and to accompany us during all chances and changes of this trying and fitful progress, to control the passions, to enlighten the judgment, to guide the conscience, to teach us what we ought to do here, and what we shall be hereafter” (Cass, 1846, cited from Bill Federer, American Minute).
