“In stark contrast to our ceaseless human buck passing, the Day of Judgment will be the day when all passing of the buck will end and all chickens will come home to roost…We will all be naked before God and the truth, and have no one to blame but ourselves. None of us will have a leg to stand on. There will be no apologist or defense counsel to speak for us, so we will all face up to who we really are and what we have really done—which of course is when grace will be seen at its most amazing.” (Os Guinness)
The lamp-posts are poetical...the lamp-post really has the whole poetry of man, for no other creature can lift a flame so high and guard it so well. --G K Chesterton, London Times July 24, 1909.
