Timothy Dwight (1752-1817), president of Yale, was an influential author and educator.  He was grandson of Jonathan Edwards, the famous New England minister and president of Princeton.  It was during his president at Yale that a powerful revival ensued at the New Haven campus with a large percentage of the class, not only professing Christ, but entering the ministry.  On July 4th, 1798, President Dwight declared:

“Religion and liberty are the meat and drink of the body politic. Withdraw one of them and it languishes, consumes, and dies… Without religion we may possibly retain the freedom of savages, bears, and wolves, but not he freedom of New England.  If our religion were gone, our state of society would perish with it, and nothing would be left.”

Timothy Dwight stated:

“Where there is no religion, there is no morality… With the loss of religion…the ulitmate foundation of confidence is blown up; and the security of life, liberty and property are buried in ruins.”

“The Bible is a window in this prison of hope, through which we look into eternity.”
