Hiram Bingham, A Residence of Twenty-One Years, pg. 281

“If the safety and perpetuity of all that is valuable in a country depend on the intelligence and virtue of the inhabitants, is it not clearly the right and duty of the state or the government to take measures adapted to promote such intelligence and virtue? The intelligence and virtue and the richest blessings of our country are derived from Christianity.”

“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.”
—Revelation 11:15
