Americas Quest for Freedom
  • It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often
    that this great nation was founded, not by
    religionists, but by Christians, not on
    religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ!
  • Patrick Henry.
  • French writer Alexis de Tocqueville, after
    visiting America in 1831, said, "I sought for the
    greatness of the United States in her commodious
    harbors, her ample rivers, her fertile fields,
    and boundless forests--and it was not there. I
    sought for it in her rich mines, her vast world
    commerce, her public school system, and in her
    institutions of higher learning--and it was not
    there. I looked for it in her democratic Congress
    and her matchless Constitution--and it was not
    there. Not until I went into the churches of
    America and heard her pulpits flame with
    righteousness did I understand the secret of her
    genius and power. America is great because
    America is good, and if America ever ceases to be
    good, America will cease to be great!"
