Benjamin Franklin

January 17, 1706 - April 17, 1790
"Here is my creed: I believe in one God, the Creator of the universe. That he governs it by his providence. That he ought to be worshiped. That the most acceptable service we render to him is in doing good to his other children. That the soul of man is immortal, and will be treated with justice in another life respecting its conduct in this. These I take to be the fundamental points in all sound religion."source: Smyth, Writing of Benjamin Franklin, 10:84.God, religion, beliefs of the Founders, justice, service
