The Indomitable Word
During the enlightenment, Voltaire predicted that within twenty-five years the Bible would be forgotten and Christianity would be a thing of the past. Forty years after his death in 1778, the Bible was being printed in what had once been Voltaire's very own home! “Moreover, we possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. You do well if you pay attention to this as you would to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.” (2Pet. 1:19) Trust the Bible. It has outlasted every human philosophy. It will outlast you.
