We have many men of science; too few men of God.

I have been thoroughly enjoying sitting under the teaching of Dr. Danny Akin as he is teaching through Revelation on Wednesday nights at Wake Cross Roads Baptist Church.

Tonight, while walking through Revelation 6:1-8, he quoted from General Omar Bradley's Armistice Day speech from 1948 -- I wanted to share this prophetic quote here:

With the monstrous weapons man already has, humanity is in danger of being trapped in this world by its moral adolescents. Our knowledge of science has clearly outstripped our capacity to control it. We have many men of science; too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. Man is stumbling blindly through a spiritual darkness while toying with the precarious secrets of life and death. The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living.
