Quote of the Weekend

“He could see now through all his rationalizations. His arguments against belief in a Creator had never been intellectual ones, as had claimed. By rejecting a Creator he thought he could rid himself of a Judge. But it had not worked. His atheism had been the opiate of his soul and the executioner of uncalculated millions. But now his comforting atheism could no longer exist, even for a fleeting moment, for he had been forever stripped of the power to deny reality.” – Safely Home by Randy Alcorn

(This is a gruesome scene in the book where we get a fictional glimpse into Mao Zedong in hell. While I personally believe Hell is not the absence of God, for God is everywhere, but the absence of Christ, this is still a unique imagining of the atheist in hell.)
