Peter McKenzie, the famous Methodist preacher, was being shown over Madame Tussaud's Waxworks in London.
Coming to one object, his guide said, 'This is the chair in which Voltaire sat & wrote his atheistic blasphemies.'
`Is that the chair?' asked Peter; and then, without seeking permission, he stepped over the cord, sat down on the chair & sang as only a real believer could:
“Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Doth His successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.”
Which would you rather have - McKenzie's faith or Voltaire's atheism?
1 John 5:10 (CEV): “If we have faith in God’s Son, we have believed what God has said. But if we don’t believe what God has said about his Son, it is the same as calling God a liar.”
“If you have not chosen the Kingdom of God first, it will in the end make no difference what you have chosen instead.” - William Law.
