CHARLES BRADLAUGH, an able King’s Counsel and member of the British Parliament for many years, stood before a great audience in London, Bible in hand, and read out the great covenants God made with Abraham, and also confirmed by His oath and later reaffirmed to his seed. He then asked, “Have those promises ever been fulfilled to the Jews?” No one could say “Yes”. He then said, “And you tell me the God of that book is a God of truth? I don’t believe it.” Thus publicly, and I think sadly, Charles Bradlaugh proclaimed that his faith in the Bible was gone. It had been wrecked by unbiblical teaching, and he became one of the most active infidels of his day, although not an atheist, for he still believed there must be a God, and that man can come into contact with God somehow.
