“The Hinge on Which the Door of History Swings”

“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the wall of his cell.”  C. S. Lewis

“This would be the first step in apostasy:  men first forget the true, and then adore the false.”  Charles  Spurgeon

“Christian leadership involves servant hood (Mark 10:44) and a non-quitting attitude (2 Cor. 4).” Anon…

“’I can’t be sure God does not exist.’  World’s most notorious atheist Richard Dawkins admits he is in fact agnostic.”  Suzannah Hills, London Mail Online, February 24, 2012

“We shall learn more of the nature of man by watching his behavior through the sixty centuries than by reading Plato and Aristotle, Spinoza and Kant.  ‘All philosophy,’ said Nietzsche, ‘has now fallen forfeit to history.’”  Will Durant, Caesar and Christ, Preface

“For Christians, Jesus is the hinge on which the door of history swings, the point at which eternity intersects with time, the Savior who redeems time by drawing all things to himself.  As the second millennium draws to a close, nearly a third of the world’s population claims to be his followers…But by any secular standard, Jesus is also the dominant figure of Western culture.  What we now think of as Western ideas, inventions, and values finds its source or inspiration in the religion that worships God in his name.  Art and science, the self and society, politics and economics, marriage and the family, right and wrong, body and soul—all have been touched and often radically transformed by Christian influences.”  Newsweek magazine, March 29, 1999, p. 54

“The Bible was a whole literature, a library.  It was an anthology of poetry and short stories.  It taught history, biography, geography, philosophy, political science, psychology, hygiene, and sociology (statistical at that), in addition to cosmogony, ethics, and theology.  What gives the Bible so strong a hold on the minds that once grow familiar with its content is its dramatic reporting of human affairs.”  Jacques Barzun, From Dawn to Decadence, p. 27, 28

“America is caught in the cross hairs of those who hate this land, hate what we stand for, and hate what we’ve accomplished. Her people have been sold down the river by the socialist liberals who worship at the altar of secular humanism and multiculturalism.”  Michael Savage, The Savage Nation, p. 152.

“Is it possible that a homeless and failed artist from Vienna [Adolph Hitler], a paranoid gangster from Georgia [Joseph Stalin], and a pedophile and drug addict from Beijing [Mao Tse-tung] led to the ruin of millions and millions of lives?  Well, they certainly did…in a way. The Bullet’s Song [William Pfaff] is dedicated to the creative and sick minds that helped write the script and compose the soundtrack for the man-made death and destruction of the 20th century.  From their imaginations sprang the delusions of utopia and the ideology of transcendent violence without which Nazism, Fascism, and Communism could not have succeeded in stirring up so many people to commit so much mass murder for such a long time.”  Leon Hadar, The American Conservative, February 28, 2005, p. 33
