The Challenge of an Atheist (Zacharias T. Fomum)

If I firmly believed, as millions say they do, that the knowledge and practice of religion in this life influences destiny in another, then religion would mean to me everything.

I would cast away earthly enjoyments as dross, earthly cares as follies, and earthly thoughts and feelings as vanity. Religion would be my first waking thought, and my last image before sleep sank me into unconsciousness. I would labour in its cause alone. I would take thought for the morrow of Eternity alone. I would esteem one soul gained for heaven worth a life of suffering. Earthly consequences would never stay my hand, or seal my lips. Earth, its joys and its griefs, would occupy no moment of my thoughts. I would strive to look upon Eternity alone, and on the immortal souls around me, soon to be everlastingly miserable. I would go forth the world and preach to it in season and out of season, and my text would be, what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?

From “True Discipleship” by William Macdonald.

Ah seigneur, aide moi a comprendre que je ne suis rien ,rien du du tout. Te servir c'est un honneur, que je n'ai pas me faire prier sur quoiquece soit, ni attendre que l'on me remercie approuvé ou me félicite. Car ce n'est pour l'homme que je ferai mais pour un Dieu si grand si puissant sue rien ne peut contenir et qui voit dans le secret. Amen!
