The greatest mystery in the world today is the patience of God in allowing sin to run ravaging through this world.
There is no village or town without its seething, and there is no human heart without its caliginous, black drop.
There is no life without its tears and its sorrows.
There is no home that ultimately does not break up, and there is no family that does not see the circle of the home dissolve in the depths of the grave.
There is no life that does not end in the grave.
The pages of history, from the time of the first murder until this present hour, are written in blood, tears, and death.
Why God delays in taking, the kingdom unto Himself. That is the most inexplicable mystery that the mind could dream of, the mystery of the presence of evil. For these thousands of years, God has allowed Satan to wrap his vicious, slimy, filthy, cruel tentacles around human life and around this earth. Does God know it? Is He indifferent to it?
