Monday Quote!

Benjamin Franklin

1706-1790

How many observe Christ’s  birthday! How few, His precepts! O! ’tis easier to keep Holidays than commandments.

This is the last of the Ben Franklin quotes for a while. I am not sure why I use these quotes yet I was feeling led by the Lord to do so. I do admire Benjamin Franklin for his wisdom even tho many have said he was not a Christian. I myself am not sure, only our God can judge that.

    Always have liked Ben and his quotes – no – many of our founding fathers were not “religious” yet many had a strong faith in God didn’t they? Merry Christmas

  3. Franklin actually was a Christian at the time that he penned this quote. I just completed a study of everything that Franklin wrote on the subject of religion, and I discovered that all of the non-Christian statements that are quoted by the historians come from Franklin’s early years as a rebellion teenager in London. By the time he reached the age of 29, he was making statements like:

    “I am conscious I believe in Christ, and exert my best Endeavours to understand his Will aright, and strictly to follow it.”

    And:

    “Christ by his Death and Sufferings has purchas’d for us those easy Terms and Conditions of our Acceptance with God, propos’d in the Gospel, to wit, Faith and Repentance.”

    I’ve now published my study of Franklin’s conversion and his commitment to Christianity in a new book entitled “Franklin on Faith.” The book is available on Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1506127355, and if you would like a review copy, you can request one at: http://www.increasinglearning.com/contact-us.html
