Psalm 14

Voltaire

Voltaire, the 18th century French atheist who was one of the greatest writers of his time, wielded a bitter pen against Christianity. In a moment of triumph he once boasted, “In twenty years Christianity will be no more. My single hand shall destroy the edifice it took twelve apostles to rear.” But Voltaire’s arrogance was swallowed up in his death. He died, in his own words, “abandoned by God and man.” Shortly after his death, the very house in which Voltaire wrote was made a depot of the Geneva Bible Society!
