Men have, for the most part, done with lamenting their lost faith. Sentimental tears over the happy, simple Christendom of their fathers are a thing of the past. They are proclaiming now their contempt for Christ's character, and their disgust at the very name of love.

Conventional religion and polite unbelief are gone forever.More John Figgis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Hard and bitter is the separation, and you will be parted from many great and noble men, some perhaps your own teachers, who can accept about Jesus everything but the one thing More John Figgis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
