Beloved, in the midst of that period of intellectual history called, The Enlightenment, a philosophy known as deism was sweeping Europe. In the midst of this development, the famous skeptic, Voltaire, proclaimed that within 25 years, the Bible would be forgotten, and Christianity would be a thing of the past. However, 40 years after Voltaire’s death in 1778, the Bible and other Christian literature were being printed in what had once been Voltaire’s own house! Here is Voltaire's actual quote "Another century and there will not be a Bible on earth."
The truth of the matter is that the Word of God will go on forever. Jesus said in Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” This New Year may our lives be saturated with the Word of God!
Happy New Year!
