I do not make speeches to try to prove the sun shines. Neither do I make orations
about the existence of your brain. I will not try to persuade you that you hear me
talking or that the horse that you see running across the field is the same horse that you
see when he runs toward you. Such are the exercises of philosophers and madman,
who are closely related to each other.
Instead I will be very patient trying to teach you the words of Matthew, Mark, Luke,
and John, those giants of men who stood in the presence of the Light of the World.
They looked upon Him, their hands touched Him, the Word of Life. [1John 1:1]
I will point you to the record that God has given of His Son, Jesus of Nazareth. If you
do not believe, your blood is on your own head, because those who do not believe God
make Him a liar; for they do not believe the record that God gave of His Son.
[1John 5:10, 11]
For the words of God are pure words. The words that He put into the mouths of the
apostles and prophets carry their own authenticity and the poor wisdom of Bud Powell
can no more authenticate them than a flea can carry an elephant on his back. The
elephant carries himself, thank you.
When a man denies the call of the Gospel and that God is, he takes upon himself the
enormous task of proving that he, himself, is not a fool. No one can bear that burden.
Wisdom cried from the highest places of the city, "Forsake the foolish, and live; and
go in the way of understanding." Proverbs 9
