Mr. Chase was the grandfather of the IRS, father of paper currency and at least grandfather of the Federal Reserve and not least, President Lincoln appointed him as the Sixth Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. It seems unlikely that he reached an emotion driven, sans thought, decision, concerning the scriptures.
It is likely that Mr. Salmon followed Christ’s instruction in John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” The word, search, is touched on by Albert Barnes, “It is applied by Homer to a lioness robbed of her whelps, and who searches the plain to trace out the footsteps of the man who has robbed her.”
“the only safety for the human race is to follow its teachings.”
