Your Bible—Read It Every Day (2)

Your Bible—Read It Every Day (2)

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”

                                                                                          Mt 24:35 NIV

Let’s look again at what some of the most notable leaders in history have had to say about the Bible. Napoleon: “What happiness the Bible procures for those who believe it! What marvels it bestows upon those who reflect upon it!” Daniel Webster: “There is no solid basis for civilization but in the Word of God. If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will continue to prosper. I make it a practice to read the Bible through once every year.” William Lyon Phelps (once referred to as the most beloved professor inAmerica—ofYaleUniversity): “I thoroughly believe in a university education for both men and women, but I believe knowledge of the Bible without a college course, is more valuable than a college course without knowledge of the Bible.” Sir William Jones: “The Bible contains more pure sensibility, more exquisite beauty, more pure morality, more important history, and finer strains of poetry and eloquence than can be collected from all other books in whatever age or language they may be written.” Robert E. Lee: “The Bible is a book, in comparison with which all other books are of minor importance. In all my perplexities and distress, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.” Jean-Jacques Rousseau: “The majesty of the Scriptures strikes me with admiration, as the purity of the gospel has its influence on my heart. Peruse the works of other philosophers with all their pomp and diction, how mean, how contemptible are they, compared with the Scriptures.” Your Bible—read it every day.
