Voltaire Quote

‘To hold a pen is to be at war.’ – Voltaire

This is one Voltaire quote I like!  Indeed to write and speak is to be at war with this age and culture!  But of course I speak about the historical witness of “Christ Jesus”, Who is Himself, both the “Logos” and the “Rhema”.  The Word of God Incarnate and Speaking (Holy Writ!)  And sadly Voltaire’s pen here was silent!  He was of course only a classic Deist… of the 17th and 18th century doctrine: that God created the world and its natural laws, but really takes no further part in any personal revelation and function!   Indeed such a great loss here!

But, often Voltaire is worth a quote!
