A Quote You Need to Read

I was reading through the book Goforth of China, a biography about missionary Jonathan Goforth, and I came across this quote that "got all over me."  I wanted to share it with you. The quote is by Mrs. Whitfield Guinness.

"A great 'without' has been written on heathenism. Men and women are toiling without a Bible, without a Sunday, without prayer, without songs of praise. They have rulers without justice and without righteousness; homes without peace; marriage without sanctity, young men and girls without ideals and enthusiasm; little children without purity, without innocence; mothers without wisdom or self-control; poverty without relief or sympathy; sickness without skillful help or tender care; sorrow and crime without a remedy; and worst of all, death without hope."

  1. Thanks for sharing this great reminder. Very sobering. Certainly sounds a lot like the writer was referring to Cambodia.
