Quote of the Day #211 - William Gurnall

A quote from William Gurnall on truth and the fading pleasures of this world:
It is a mystery to the world why men will risk their lives for what it thinks are only opinions. When our Saviour told Pilate that He had come into the world to 'bear witness to the truth,' Pilate asked, 'What is truth?' (John 18:38). It is as if he had said,' Is this any time to be thinking about truth when your life is in such danger? What is truth anyway, that you should venture so much for it?' The saint full of God's grace might better ask in holy scorn, 'What are the riches and honors and the fading pleasures of this cheating world? What is life itself, that any or all of these should oppose truth?'
~William Gurnall (The Christian in Complete Armour Volume 2, Chapter 1, Part 1).

This quote was taken from the book The Christian in Complete Armour Volume 2 - A modernized abridgement of the Puritan Classic by William Gurnall, published by Banner Of Truth.
