    On the 26th of May, 1786, James Madison, who subsequently became president of the United States, said in a sermon he delivered before the Protestant Episcopal Church in the State of Virginia, “I earnestly recommend to our Christians to reject every system as the fallible production of human contrivance, which shall dictate the articles of faith; and adopt the Gospel alone as their guide. Those Christian societies will ever be found to have formed their union upon principles, the wisest and the best, which makes the scriptures alone, and not human articles, a confession of belief, the sole rule of faith and conduct.” W.D. Frazie “Reminiscences and Sermons”(1896. page 63).

    James Madison also said, “We have staked the whole future of the American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future…upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves, according to the Ten Commandments of God.”

      Thanks for all of this awesome information. Trying to catch up as we have been in the midst of a tragic family loss. Just got back from the memorial service this afternoon. My son in law’s sister has been missing for 2 months and was found deceased last week.
