Chambers on God and Culture

Whittaker Chambers

Whittaker Chambers

I’ve been commenting on the fact of God’s existence and that Jesus Christ was God in the flesh. These are basic truths upon which all of our thinking should rest.

Those who have perused my website cannot have missed that one of the subjects I have been researching is Whittaker Chambers, a man who found the truth of God’s existence, but only after experiencing the failed god of communism.

Reflecting on God, man, and history in his seminal work Witness, Chambers commented on man’s rejection of God, and put his thoughts into words that have stayed with me ever since I first read them more than twenty years ago.

There has never been a society or a nation without God. But history is cluttered with the wreckage of nations that became indifferent to God, and died.

May America never be indifferent to God. Indifference is tantamount to rejection. If we reject God, He will reject us.
