RICHARD FLANDERS
American clergyman
(late 19th century)

It is the conqueror-Death. He carries a black flag, and he takes no prisoners. He digs a trench across the hemispheres and fills it with the carcasses of nations. Fifty times would the world have been depopulated had not God kept making new generations. Fifty times the world would have swung lifeless through the air--no man on the mountain, no man on the sea--an abandoned ship plowing through immensity. Again and again has He done this work with all generations. He is a monarch as well as a conqueror; his palace a sepulchre; his fountains the falling tears of a world. Blessed be God, in the light of this Easter Morning I see the prophecy that his sceptre shall be broken and his palace shall be demolished. The hour is coming when all who are in their graves shall come forth. Christ risen, we shall rise. Jesus--"the first-fruits of them that slept."
      - Death of a Fundamentalist,
        a sermon given April 25, 1886 [Easter]
