"The merciful God also help
me to a happy end."
(Russell, 1967, 90)
"God granted me diligence so
that I learned well."
"My father . . . led an
honest God-fearing life, and was a gentle, patient man, friendly to all and thankful to
God. He cared little for company and nothing for worldly amusements. He told me every day
that we must love God and be honest in our dealings with our neighbours."
"Oh ye Christian men, pray
God for help, for His judgement draweth nigh and His justice will appear. Then shall we
behold the innocent blood . . . judged and condemned. These are the slain who lie beneath
the altar of God and pray for vengeance to whom the voice of God answereth: Await the full number of the innocent slain, then will I judge."
"All worldly rulers in these
dangerous times should give good heed that they receive not human misguidance for the Word
of God, for God will have nothing added to His Word nor taken away from it. Hear,
therefore, these four excellent men: Peter, John, Paul and Mark. "
