Frederick Douglass, Abolitionist Leader & Advisor to Lincoln, "I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ" - American Minute with Bill Federer
Douglass continued: "I finally found that change of heart which comes by 'casting all one's care' upon God, and by having faith in Jesus Christ, as the Redeemer, Friend, and Savior of those who diligently seek him. After this, I saw the world in a new light ... I loved all mankind -- slaveholders not excepted; though I abhorred slavery more than ever ... I gathered scattered pages of the Bible from the filthy street gutters, and washed and dried them, that ... I might get a word or two of wisdom from them."
