Excerpt from Immanuel: God With Us
The finite mind cannot conceive When we read that God spake, and this, to us inimitable universe, stood forth, how lit tle realization there is of what is involved. Even the complex working of laws then given for the perpetuation of creation. Philosophers are continually making dis coveries in the heavens above, in the earth beneath, and in the waters under the earth, some of which completely traverse views long held and strenuously maintained, and upon which were built elaborate super structures, and these come to the ground when there is nothing for them to rest upon; but the word of God remains in all its sub lime and unapproachable grandeur, an immovable rock, an invulnerable fortress, which Satan has been attacking for three thousand years only to confirm the Scrip ture which says 'we can do nothing against the truth but for the truth.
