Sometimes a simple but clear and unequivocal proclamation of what someone believes is really refreshing, even if that proclamation stands opposed to everything you believe. Not just refreshing, sometimes a clear simple truth highlights a greater unspoken truth.
Take Nikita Khrushchev for example. Khrushchev was the premier of the Soviet Union back in the last half of the 1950s into the 1960s. Khrushchev has a bucket full of one-liners that make clear what he believes. Nikita did not tap dance around an issue!
The Soviet Union was officially atheist, and they had little tolerance for the Church and things of God. Understanding Khrushchev to be a good comrade, I think we can assume he was an atheist himself.
In light of this background, I share with you one of the great one-liners in history, from Khrushchev – “We say the name of God, but that is only habit.”
Think about that….
