“And they (Adam and Eve), too, were destined to be overcome of evil: they were soon to experience the meaning of that awful word, death, which the lips of their Creator had uttered; to feel the terrors of His wrath, the desolation of ruin, the horrors of corruption. For the all-wise God well knew that great obstacle to perfection in the creature, and that, until it could be removed, He was unable to show forth his love and pour out His bounty to the full. He could not endow men with great power and wisdom; He could not make them excellent in majesty and glorious in might, swift as the winds or the lightening to do His will, until they had passed the danger of abusing His gifts, and so falling as the sinful angels had done before them”

-1884 “The Earth’s Earliest Ages” by G. H. Pember


About Razor Swift

Rich Christian who is the founder of Razor Swift, seeks to open hearts and minds through the platform of apologetics. It's his desire to approach Biblical, faith, and other issues from a different perspective rather than just preaching to the choir in the Christianese dialect. He maintains that faith and reason mustn’t necessarily be at odds with each other, but can be complementary. May no stone lay unturned.
