… other posts I am avoiding. All to bring you this quote from William Paley:
If He had wished our misery He might have made our senses instruments of pain to us. He might have made every taste bitter, every touch a sting, every smell a stench and every sound a discord.
William Paley was a British Enlightenment Philosopher and appeared to have some quirky ideas about church life and what not. I don’t really know that much about him, but I thought this quote out of Principles of Moral and Political Philosophy was particularly stirring.
Here is my question for you… I have quoted this bit of wisdom in a Bible study, but I had it belonging to a Puritan writer. The problem is I do not recall who that was. Anyone ever see this quote attributed to someone else?
