"Of all the dispositions and habits
iohtch lead to political piosperKv, c
llalon and morality are indispensable
supports. In vain would that man
claim tho tribute of patrloiistn icho
should labor to subvert these great
pillars of human Anpjilnejs these
firmer props of the duties of men and
citizens. The mere politician, equally
with the pious man. ought to respect
and cherish them. A volume could not
trace all their connections with private
and public felicity."
Ocorga Washington, whose birthday
toe Ziaro but recently observed, wrote
the above estimate of tha value of re
ligion and morality to the welfare of
the nation of which he Is justly called
the father. And again he wrote:
"Whatever may be conceded to the
influence of refined education on minda
of peculiar structuie, reason and ex
perience both forbid us to expect that
national morality can prevail in exclu
sion of religious principles."
It provides pleasure and inspiration
now and then to read of the value held
of religion by the men who led this
country in the days of her early strug
gles. This is particularly true because
their estimate of it was so high. Few,
indeed, of those who were prominent
in guiding the Ship of State from old
Independence Hall lacked a high ap
preciation of the power of the Gospel.
It should bring gladness to the mem
bers of Qod's army to revert to tho
thoughts of the nation's leaders when
they so strongly support the things for
which tho Church stands. Hut it should
do more than this. It should inspire
them to greater endeavor to help make
the country better today.
If alt the church members would get
such inspiration and would try to instil
the principles of honesty and morality
into tho political llfo of today, the per
spective of the government would be
