ENOCH FITCH BURR
American clergyman
(1818 - 1907)

At the conscious approach of death, faith in the biblical religion, with its God and Christ and written revelation, never weakens, but almost or quite always strengthens, and very often advances to a splendid assurance; while unbelief under the same circumstances never strengthens, but almost or quite always weakens and falters, and very often fails utterly.
      - [Unbelief]

Dying visions of angels and Christ and God and heaven are confined to credibly good men. Why do not bad men have such visions? They die of all sorts of diseases; they have nervous temperaments; they even have creeds and hopes about the future which they cling to with very great tenacity; why do not they rejoice in some such glorious illusions when they go out of the world?
      - [Death]

Eighteen centuries have passed since the Bible was finished. There have been centuries of great changes. In their course the world has been wrought over into newness at almost every point. But to-day the text of the Scriptures, after copyings almost innumerable and after having been tossed about through ages of ignorance and tumult, is found by exhaustive criticism to be unaltered in every important particular--there being not a single doctrine, nor duty, nor fact of any grade, that is brought into question by variations of readings--a fact that stands alone in the history of such ancient literature.
      - [Bible]

I know of no condition worse than that of the man who has little or no light on the supreme religious questions, and who at the same time is making no effort to come to the light.
      - [Unbelief]
