Taylor: the foolishness of atheism

Wednesday, June 24, 2015
    Feast of the Birth of John the Baptist
    [Jesus:] “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?”
    —Luke 12:25-26 (NIV)
    Can any thing in this world be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth can come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster?
    ... Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667), The Whole Works of the Right Rev. Jeremy Taylor, D.D., v. V, London: Ogle, Duncan & Co., 1822, Sermon XX, p. 298-299 (see the book)
    See also Luke 12:25-26; Pr. 16:33; Matt. 5:36; 6:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your purposes fill the earth.
