James Longstreet (1821-1904), a Confederate major General in the Civil War, went on to become a diplomat, serving as the U.S. Minister to Turkey, 1880-81, and the U.S. Railroad Commissioner, 1898-1904.  He wrote in a letter:

“Replying to your request, I am pleased to say: I believe in God, the Father, and in His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.  It is my custom to read one or more chapters of my Bible daily for comfort, guidance, and instruction.  Knowing myself a sinner, I am greatly relieved by the happy assurance that for such our Saviour died, and that under lowly penitence He will surely forgive, and make our acceptance certain through His holy pleasure.”

Boston Gazette September 1768, carried an article which read:

If an army should be sent to reduce us to slavery, we will put our lives in our hands and cry to the Judge of all the earth….

Frank Borman (1928-    ), Commander of the Apollo VIII spacecraft, which was the first manned ship to orbit the moon,, shared this message on December 24, 1968, by remote television up-link as he looked at the earth from 240,000 miles away:

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  And God said Let there be light; and there was light… And God saw that it was good.”
