Thomas Jefferson Quote

“The reason that Christianity is the best friend of government is because Christianity is the only religion that changes the heart.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Thomas  Jefferson was the third president of the United States of America. Although he did not claim to be a born again Christian, he did study Christianity. The principal author of the Declaration of Independence included religious freedom as an important part of our rights as citizens. 

From the above quote we see that Jefferson realized that God does change the heart, but from his writings and observations of others, we do not know if he ever accepted Christ as his Savior.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
