Famous Lost Words: Voltaire


Voltaire, the noted French infidel, used his pen to try to retard Christianity. He once boasted, “In twenty years Christianity will be no more. My single hand shall destroy the edifice it took twelve apostles to rear.”
null Shortly after his death, his house became the depot of the Geneva Bible Society.

The nurse who attended Voltaire said, “For all the wealth in Europe I would not see another infidel die.”

His Physician said that Voltaire cried out most desperately: “I am abandoned by God and man! I will give you half of what I am worth if you will give me six months’ life. Then I shall go to hell; and you will go with me. O Christ! O Jesus Christ!”

  1. You might like to also point out how VOLTAIRE defended many christians in court free of charge to win property etc back from the CHURCH to the families of people put to death as a result of the ridiculous beliefs in the supernatural at the time. Many many christians came out at his funeral and mourned the LOSS or such a decent caring individual. He also wrote many tracts against the church (which you no doubt wouldn’t have had the balls for) even while facing the death penalty for such a thing. But hey, maybe you are with the catholics and their stupidity from the past.

    Voltaire no doubt didnt make that statement. Your sources are dubious.
