If you find these nuggets of wisdom superb, please get the book at your favorite bookstore or log in to Amazon. God bless and Peace!

“If there is no God, what is truth? Christopher Hitchens displays great moral indignation, but, given atheism, I want him to justify that indignation. If there is no God, then who cares? And Christopher Hitchens writes as a very capable wordsmith, but given atheism, I want him to justify his vibrant and engaging prose. If there is no God, then yammer, yamber, yaw&^% . .” — Douglas Wilson/Christopher Hitchens

“There is no God, right? Because there is no God, this means that—you know—genocides just happen, like earthquakes and eclipses. It is all matter in motion, and these things happen.”– Douglas Wilson/Christopher Hitchens

“The Christian faith is good for the world because it provides the fixed standard which atheism cannot provide and because it provides forgiveness for sins, which atheism cannot provide either. We need the direction of the standard because we are confused sinners. We need the forgiveness because we are guilty sinners. Atheism not only keeps the guilt, but it also keeps the confusion.”– Douglas Wilson/Christopher Hitchens

“If Christianity is bad for the world, atheists can’t consistently point this out, having no fixed way of defining “bad.” If Christianity is good for the world, atheists should not be asked about it either because they have no way of defining “good.”– Douglas Wilson/Christopher Hitchens

“In the kindness of God, the Cross is an object of inexorable fascination to us. When men and women look to Him in His death, they come to life in His resurrection. And that is good for the world.” — Douglas Wilson/Christopher Hitchens

“The Cross is God’s merciful provision that executes autonomous pride and exalts humility.” — Douglas Wilson/Christopher Hitchens

“So whenever Hitchens condemns the moral behavior of anyone else, he is not proving that atheists can be moral too. He is proving, instead, that he is incapable of following his own premises out to the end of the road. He is proving that he is blissfully unaware of the blatant contradictions in his system where no one can impose his morality on another.” — Douglas Wilson, “God Is: How Christianity Explains Everything” #atheism #douglaswilson #christopherhitchens #gospel #GodIs #Godisnotgreat #religionpoisonseverything #howchristianityexplainseverything

“There are plenty of miracle-mongers who are doing their thing in the name of Jesus, and they deserve everything that Hitchens can deliver to them, and they deserve it good and hard. But as Hitchens acknowledges here briefly, and should do so far more extensively, this is the same kind of critique of gullibility that is found in John Calvin’s Inventory of Relics. When Hitchens comes to attack this kind of credulity and hypocrisy, he finds that many Christians have preceded him.” –Douglas Wilson, “God Is: How Christianity Explains Everything” #atheism #douglaswilson #christopherhitchens #gospel #GodIs #Godisnotgreat #religionpoisonseverything #howchristianityexplainseverything

“God does not wave a compromise-wand over us and declare us to be forgiven. That would justify us, but He would not be just. Or He could send us all to hell—then He would be just, but not the one who justifies. Rather, He sent a new Adam. He established the whole human race all over again—Jesus Christ established a new way of being human.” — Douglas Wilson, “God Is: How Christianity Explains Everything” #atheism #douglaswilson #christopherhitchens #gospel #GodIs #Godisnotgreat #religionpoisonseverything #howchristianityexplainseverything

“This is why there is no injustice in the gospel. I do not just walk away from my sins. Sinners are guilty and all sinners must die. What the cross does is provide us with a way of dying, with resurrection as a promised consequence. Jesus did not die so that we might live. He died so that we might die; He lives so that we might live. This is our hope, and this is our glory. And God in His kindness has authorized His people to extend this offer—full of grace—to people like Christopher Hitchens.” — Douglas Wilson, “God Is: How Christianity Explains Everything” #atheism #douglaswilson #christopherhitchens #gospel #GodIs #Godisnotgreat #religionpoisonseverything #howchristianityexplainseverything

“If there is no God above the system, then the system is god. All societies are religious organisms, not just the ones with a religious exoskeleton.”– Douglas Wilson, “God Is: How Christianity Explains Everything” #atheism #douglaswilson #christopherhitchens #gospel #GodIs #Godisnotgreat #religionpoisonseverything #howchristianityexplainseverything

“All human societies are theocracies. The only issue that confronts us is which theos we will serve. The atrocious cultures are the ones who serve atrocious gods.” — Douglas Wilson, “God Is: How Christianity Explains Everything” #atheism #douglaswilson #christopherhitchens #gospel #GodIs #Godisnotgreat #religionpoisonseverything #howchristianityexplainseverything

“Hitchens acknowledges that secularist hellholes are wrong. He explains (in many ways, accurately) how they came to be so wrong. In many cases it was because of the previous misbehavior of believers. Granted. He vividly lances the pomposity and pretensions of those who are wrong in this way. The only thing he does not explain—for he cannot explain—is why they are wrong.” — Douglas Wilson, “God Is: How Christianity Explains Everything” #atheism #douglaswilson #christopherhitchens #gospel #GodIs #Godisnotgreat #religionpoisonseverything #howchristianityexplainseverything
