Daily Dose of Ingersoll


The orthodox God, when clothed in human flesh, told his
disciples not to resist evil, to love their enemies, and when
smitten on one cheek to turn the other, and yet we are told that
this same God, with the same loving lips, uttered these heartless,
these fiendish words; “Depart ye cursed into everlasting fire,
prepared for the devil and his angels.”

These are the words of “eternal love.”

No human being has imagination enough to conceive of this
infinite horror.

All that the human race has suffered in war and want, in
pestilence and famine, in fire and flood, — all the pangs and
pains of every disease and every death — all this is as nothing
compared with the agonies to be endured by one lost soul.

This is the consolation of the Christian religion. This is the
justice of God — the mercy of Christ.
