“What does the Christian world know about God? Nothing… Why, so far as the things of God are concerned, they are the veriest fools; they know neither God nor the things of God… What do they know about truth? No more than a child about its hand. They are imbecile and ignorant and in the dark, and the greatest difficulty in the matter is – they are fools and don’t know it.”
John Taylor – 6 May 1870, Journal of Discourses – Volume 13 (Liverpool, England: Horace S. Eldredge, 1874), 225.
