Evil is to life what contradiction is to reason.  If an argument is contradictory, reasoning breaks down.  If life is consumed by evil, life breaks down.  The problem of evil begins with me.  One of the shortest letters written to an editorial was by G.K. Chesterton.  It read, “Dear Sir” In response to your article, ‘What’s wrong with the world’ – I am.  Yours truly, G.K. Chesterton.”

Though our communications to you may be frequent, yet we believe they will be received on your part with brotherly feelings; and that from us your unworthy brethren, you will suffer a word of exhortation to have place in your hearts, as you see the great extent of the power and dominion of the prince of darkness, and realize how vast the numbers are who are crowding the road to death without ever giving heed to the cheering sound of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

These are times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still calm of life that great characters are formed. The habits of a vigorous mind are formed in contending with difficulties. All history will convince you of this, and that wisdom and penetration are the fruits of experience and not the lessons of retirement and leisure. Great necessities call out great virtues. When a mind is raised and animated by scenes that engage the heart, then those qualities, which would otherwise lay dormant, wake into life and form the character of the Hero and that statesman.
