If a spot could be found wherein there would be no God, what a fine building

The atheist is, morally, as well as mentally, a fool, a fool in the heart as well as in the
head; a fool in morals as well as in philosophy. With the denial of God as a starting
point, we may well conclude that the fool’s progress is a rapid, riotous, raving,
ruinous one. He who begins at impiety is ready for anything. “No God,” being
interpreted, means no law, no order, no restraint to lust, no limit to passion.
There are no infidels anywhere but on earth: there are none in heaven, and there are

gone beyond their father in sin, but how will it look when they are for ever lost?
