I wish to hear no more from you, sir. My mind is made up on that subject. I look upon the whole of the Christian scheme as a tissue of lies, and Jesus Christ no more than a cunning knave and impostor. ” 25. EDWARD GIBBON, THE INFIDEL HISTORIAN Gibbon is known as the author of The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. In his early life he became a Catholic. But then he fell in with the fashionable infidelity of his day that soon was jesting at Christianity. Rev. E. P. Goodwin in Christianity and Infidelity says of Gibbon’s autobiography that though he was a master of rhetoric yet there was not a word of reverence for God, nothing of love for his fellow men, but his whole narrative was characterized by sordid selfishness, vain glory, desire for admiration, contempt for the poor, and a supreme interest in his own gratification.
Hoping to allay his anguish by a written recantation, he had it prepared, signed it, and saw it witnessed. But it was all unavailing. For two months he was tortured with such an agony as led him at times to gnash his teeth in impotent rage against God and man. At other times in plaintive accents he would plead, “O Christ! ” As his end drew near, his condition became so frightful that his infidel associates were afraid to approach his bedside. Still they guarded the door, that others might not know how awfully an infidel was compelled to die.
The materialist contends that all consciousness lies in the physical brain and forever ceases at death. In other words, death marks the end of human personality. Nevertheless, evidence provided by recent scientific discoveries quite apart from divine revelation is against this theory. Large sections of the brain have been removed by surgeons, and yet consciousness has been retained! The brain is not the human spirit! The first awareness of the rich man, after his heart ceased beating, was that consciousness survived the death of the body.
