A Seal of Approval

"UCLA—the largest of the 10 schools comprising the University of California system, all of which use the corporate seal authorized by their Board of Regents.

But did you know? At the center of that seal is an open book, with a streamer across the lower part that reads: “Let there be light!”
A reference found in Genesis 1.

New York’s Columbia University’s seal has numerous symbolic references to God and the Bible. One depicts a lady surrounded by young children with the verses 1 Peter 2:1-2 inscribed underneath. “Like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word...” (NASB).

Yale, Harvard, and others, have in their official seals references to and from the Bible—attesting to the influence of the Bible on America’s major educational institutions!"
