Faith In Humanity Just Took Another Hit: A Horrifying Holocaust Revelation (CaPC)

“Certain new theologians dispute original sin, which is the only part of Christian theology which can really be proved.” -G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

holocaustWhen even Holocaust historians are shocked at their own findings, you know the picture is horrifying.

  1. Mr. Rishmawy I want to thank you for this article. I have, at least since my salvation, been baffled at our surprise and indignation at (fill in the blank) national or international tragedy/catastrophe. Heinous treatment of each other has been a constant, and will be a constant, in our history. I especially appreciate your reference to the human delusion that we can “educate” or “enlighten” our way out of the mess in which we find ourselves.

    • Andy,
      Thanks a lot for stopping by to comment on the blog. I’m glad the article spoke to you. Human evil is still a mystery to me at times–the Gospel begins to shed light, and more importantly, give hope for it.
      Blessings,

      Derek
