Founding Fathers Quotes…Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson:

“ The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend to all the happiness of man.”

“Of all the systems of morality, ancient or modern which have come under my
observation, none appears to me so pure as that of Jesus.”
“I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus.”
“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.” (excerpts are inscribed on the walls of the Jefferson Memorial in
the nations capital)
