The cruelty of atheism
Here are a few dying words of famous atheists...
Voltaire ‘I am abandoned by God and man; I shall go to Hell!
Severus (Roman Emperor who caused the death of thousands of Christians) said...“I have been everything, and everything is nothing!”
Napoleon Bonaparte (The French emperor who brought death to millions to satisfy his selfish plans) said... “I die before my time, and my body will be given back to the earth. Such is the fate of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an abyss between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ!”
Thomas Carlyle “I am as good as without hope, a sad old man gazing into the final chasm!”
Aldamont (The Infidel) said “My principles have poisoned my friend; my extravagance has beggared my boy; my unkindness has murdered my wife. And is there another Hell yet ahead?”
Here are a few words said by dying Christians... see the difference...
Jonathan Edwards - Trust in God and you shall have nothing to fear.
D. L. Moody - I see earth receding; heaven is opening. God is calling me.
Isaac Watts (Hymn-writer) - It is a great mercy that I have no manner of fear or dread of death. I could, if God please, lay my head back and die without terror this afternoon.
Charles Dickens - Commit my soul to the mercy of God, through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and I exhort my dear children humbly to try and guide themselves by the teaching of the New Testament.
Andrew Jackson - My dear children, do not grieve for me . . . I am my God’s. I belong to Him. I go but a short time before you, and ...I hope and trust to meet you all in heaven.
Thomas Bilney (Burnt at the stake by the Roman Catholic Church) – “I know by sense and philosophy that fire is hot and burning painful, but by faith I know it shall only waste the stubble of my body, and purge my spirit of its corruption.”
John Lambert – “None but Christ, none but Christ.”
Baynam (Also burnt to death by the Roman Catholic Church) said... “Behold, you papists that look for miracles, I feel no more pain in the fire than if I were in a bed of down, it is as sweet to me as a bed of roses.”
You see, Christians die well... because the Lord Jesus Christ is leading them through death.
Death doesn’t hold any terror for us Christians.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15v53-57.
For the Christian, death is just a stepping stone into Heaven’s glory.
