“Men are so absorbed in the affairs of the world that God, the Supreme Reality, seems unreal to them. When that which is least real is everything, that which is most real appears to be nothing.
The Christ who once died now lives and reigns. The Holy Spirit, whom He sends to believing hearts, is the connecting link between our faith-experience and the historical foundation of our faith. Without the Cross and Resurrection, there would be no Christian experience at all.
The historical facts make the experience possible, while the experience verifies the facts.
Christian experience is the final apologetic of the Christian faith.”
(Daniel Lamont, The Anchorage of Life, quoted in Iain Murray, The Undercover Revolution, 78)
