Three surprising characters of a very sharp mind are each etched in history. They heralded Christian truth to their world yesterday, and ours still today.
- Napoleon, Emperor of the French,1769-1821:
The gospel is not a book; it is a living being with an action and power which invades everything that opposes its extension. Behold - it lies upon this table: this Book, surpassing all others. I never omit to read it, and every day with some pleasure.
- Pascal, French philosopher and mathematician, developed the contemporary theory of probability,1623-1662:
I prefer to believe those writers who get their throats cut for what they write.#
- Isaac Newton, English mathematician and scientist,1643-1727:
We account the scriptures of God to be the most sublime philosophy. I find more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history whatsoever.
Intellect is no mark of faith, but to human reason it is a badge of credibility.
Christianity is as credible as it is true.
Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)
