Founding Fathers Quotes…Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton:

• Hamilton began work with the Rev. James Bayard to form the Christian Constitutional
Society to help spread over the world the two things which Hamilton said made America
great:
(1) Christianity
(2) a Constitution formed under Christianity.
“The Christian Constitutional Society, its object is first: The support of the Christian
religion. Second: The support of the United States.”
On July 12, 1804 at his death, Hamilton said, “I have a tender reliance on the mercy of
the Almighty, through the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am a sinner. I look to Him for
mercy; pray for me.”

“For my own part, I sincerely esteem it [the Constitution] a system which without the
finger of God, never could have been suggested and agreed upon by such a diversity of
interests.” [1787 after the Constitutional Convention]

“I have carefully examined the evidences of the Christian religion, and if I was sitting as
a juror upon its authenticity I would unhesitatingly give my verdict in its favor. I can
prove its truth as clearly as any proposition ever submitted to the mind of man.”
