“For all the wealth in Europe I would not see another infidel die!” The attending nurse of Voltaire.
According to the attending doctor at Voltaire here’s the dying words of the noted Atheist:
“I abandoned by God and man, I will give you half of what I am worth if you will give six months life. Then I shall go to hell; and you will go with me. O Christ. O Jesus Christ!”
How vastly different are the words of Stephen who was stoned to death by religious people. Here’s his last words as he was being stoned, yet gazing into heaven saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, then calling on God, kneeling down and saying with a loud voice:
“Lord, do not charge them with this sin.”
In life’s most trying events we must learn to emulate Jesus, Stephen and many others, trusting God to welcome us as we praise Jesus.
