"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

The Greatest Mystery of All




The Greatest Mystery of All – God is Love and we His Beloved

T
here is but a single real mystery left to the true atheist:  "The greatest mystery is not that we have been flung at random between the profusion of matter and of the stars, but that within this prison we can draw from ourselves images powerful enough to deny our nothingness," André Malraux (+1976).

And then a man comes along with an observation on mankind—in all his humility—with no need of God’s assistance: "Man: An animal so lost in rapturous contemplation of what he thinks he is as to overlook what he indubitably ought to be," Ambrose Bierce (+c. 1914).

And, perhaps without even knowing it, some men have stated the sad truth about the depth of mankind’s general commitment to his Creator: “We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another,” Jonathan Swift (+1745). While others stated very succinctly the Creator’s view on such things: "By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another," John 13:35.
