This is genuine Christianity

As evidenced in his textbook, “History of the United States, published in 1832, he believed that Christianity and government could not and should not be separated:

“The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and His apostles, which enjoins humility, piety, and benevolence; which acknowledges in every person, a brother or a sister, and a citizen with equal rights. This is genuine Christianity, and to this we owe our free constitutions of government.”

Noah Webster, History of the United States (New Haven: Durrie and Peck, 1832), p. 300, ¶ 578
