Whittaker Chamber’s Witness on Cult and Culture
I am just now finishing reading Chamber’s remarkable book Witness. I highly recommend it to all readers and participants on the blog. Chamber’s “Letter to my Children” should be read in every seminary apologetics class.
I thought the following quote relevant to my October article on cult and culture.
“Communism is what happens when, in the name of Mind, men free themselves from God. But its view of God, its knowledge of God, its experience of God, is what alone gives character to a society or a nation, and meaning to its destiny. Its culture, the voice of this character, is merely that view, knowledge, experience, of God, fixed by its most intense spirits in terms intelligible to the mass of men. There has never been a society or a nation without God. But history is cluttered with the wreckage of nations that became indifferent to God, and died.” Witness, pg. 16-17 (Regnery Gateway, 1980).
Thank you Mr. Chambers.
