Gilbert Chesterton

Gilbert Chesterton

English Christian thinker and writer of the late XIX - early XX centuries.
But the truth is that it is only by believing in God that we can ever criticize the government. Once abolish the God, and the government becomes the God. That fact is written all across human history; but it is written most plainly across the recent history of Russia; which was created by Lenin. There the government is the God, and all the more the God, because it proclaims aloud in accents of thunder ... one essential commandment, Thou shalt have no other gods but Me.More Gilbert Chesterton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
