To them: Hmmm… is that so? Are you absolutely sure that you are the one who gets to decide that? If not, let’s hope and pray that when your time comes, the real guy is not quite so picky about you! [Matthew 7:1]
People in general know not what wickedness there is in this pretended word of God. Brought up in habits of superstition, they take it for granted that the Bible is true, and that it is good; they permit themselves not to doubt of it, and they carry the ideas they form of the benevolence of the Almighty to the book which they have been taught to believe was written by his authority. Good heavens! it is quite another thing, it is a book of lies, wickedness, and blasphemy.
