The Bible is not such a book a man would write if he could, or could write if he would.
Infidels for eighteen hundred years have been refuting and overthrowing this book, and yet it stands today as solid as a rock. ...When the French monarch proposed the persecution of the Christians...an old statesman and warrior said to him, “Sire, the Church of God is an anvil that has worn out many hammers.” So the hammers of infidels have been pecking away at this book for ages, but the hammers are worn out, and the anvil still endures. If this book had not been the book of God, men would have destroyed it long ago.
