For I know that my redeemer lives, and that he shall stand at the latter day on the earth:…
The sceptic beholds his misgivings multiply and his doubts thicken. The believer as a rule sees them all vanish. Schiller, the great German thinker, goes to his study, sits down as usual to his desk, writes with that masterly ability which distinguished him, begins a new sentence, writes the word "But" — and then dies. The great advocates of Scepticism always die with a doubt, expire with a "But." The Christian, however, grows in faith as he approaches death. "I know that" — in my flesh, etc. Christ mine: — Dean Stanley tells us that Dr. Arnold used to make his boys say, "Christ died for me," instead of the more general phrase, "Christ died for us." "He appeared to me," says one whose intercourse with him never extended beyond these lessons, "to be remarkable for his habit of realising everything that we are told in Scripture."
(Life of Dr. Arnold.)
