Thomas Jefferson Tuesday ~The Words of Our Founding Fathers~

I have got to get back to my "Words of the Founding Fathers" post! Today is "Thomas Jefferson Tuesday"! And I was delighted to find this quote in the book "The Real Thomas Jefferson"!
"The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to the happiness of man:

1. That there is one only God, and He all perfect.

2. That there is a future state of rewards and punishments.

3. That to love God with all thy heart, and thy neighbor as thyself, is the sum of religion....Had the doctrines of Jesus been preached always as pure as they came from His lips, the whole civilized world would now have been Christian."

-Thomas Jefferson (1822).
