Faith with good works does save
One mightily from the grave
Through repentance and faith in Christ
Who pardons our defects in life

Faith will be counted for righteousness!

Said Jefferson, “Bacon, Newton and Locke…are my trinity of the three greatest men the world has ever produced.”
John Locke wrote the 1669 constitution for the Carolina Colony.  He wrote books on the reasonableness of Christianity.
 According to Jefferson, Locke’s system of Christianity is this:
Adam was created happy and immortal….By sin he lost this so that he became subject to total death (like that of brutes [animals]) to the crosses and unhappiness of this life.  At the intercession however of the Son of God this sentence was in part remitted… And moreover to them who believed their faith was to be counted for righteousness.[Roman 4:3, 5] .  Not that faith without works was to save them; St. James, chapter 2 says expressly the contrary [vs 14-26]….So that a reformation of life (included under repentance) was essential, and defect in this would be made up by their faith; i.e. their faith should be counted for righteousness [ Romans 4:3, 5]…[A]dding a faith in God and His attributes that on their repentance He would pardon them [John 1:9]; they  also would be justified [Romans 3:24] .  This then explains the test “there is no other name under heaven by which a man may be saved”[Acts 4:12], i.e., the defects in good works shall not be supplied by a faith in Mahomet, Fo [i.e., Buddha] or any other except Christ.

Studying for days and weeks at a time
Sir Isaac Newton was influenced by the Bible
Birthing calculus, he had quite a mind
Sticking to universal laws all of the while

Said of Newton, knighted for his work in physics, astronomy, and optics: ” he spent more time on theology than on science; indeed, he wrote about 1.3 million words on Biblical subjects…Newton’s understanding of God came primarily from the Bible, which he studied for days and weeks at a time….Newton’s theology profoundly influenced his scientific method… His God was not merely a philosopher’s impersonal First Cause; he was the God in the Bible who freely creates and rules the world, Who speaks and acts in  history.”

A vigorous pursuit of truth
Will lead one directly to God
To serve one’s country and church
Only content to give one’s all

Said Jefferson, “Bacon, Newton and Locke…are my trinity of the three greatest men the world has ever produced.”
Francis Bacon was known for developing the scientific method and is known as the “Father of Modern Science”.
He declared that his threefold goal was to discover truth, serve his country, and serve the church.  He asserted that vigorous pursuit of truth would always lead one directly to God.

A great friend to American liberty
Promotes true and undefiled religion
Refrains from profanity and immorality
And sets himself to God for each decision

Thomas Jefferson was educated by Scottish clergymen even into law school. American lawyers referred to Sir William Blackstone’s 4 vol commentaries on the Laws of England.  Who also followed the Scottish Common Sense philosophy.  ( the will of the maker is also called- the Law of Nature)

The Declaration of Independence
Was an expression of the American mind
Of those schooled by the Scottish Common Sense
It is based on Christians writers of the time

Their principle tenets of persistence
Were straight forward- There is a God!
Who wrote upon each heart, a conscience
To base each choice, and create law

This being true, Thomas Jefferson knew
Reason and revelation do not conflict
Though one’s thoughts corrupt and judgments eschew
Laws of nature and inspiration do not contradict
