From Disbelief to Faith

Gilbert West (1703–1756) and his friend, Lord Lyttleton (1709–1773), both men of acknowledged talents, had imbibed the principles of infidelity from a superficial view of the Scriptures. Fully persuaded that the Bible was an imposture, they were determined to expose it. Mr. West chose the Resurrection of Christ, and Lord Lyttleton the conversion of St. Paul, for the subject of hostile criticism. Both sat down to their respective tasks full of prejudice and a contempt for Christianity. The results of their separate endeavors were that they were both converted by their attempts to overthrow the truth of Christianity! They came together, not as they had expected, to exult over an imposture exposed to ridicule, but to lament their folly and congratulate each other on their joint conviction, that the Bible was the Word of God. Their able enquiries have furnished two most valuable treatises in favor of revelation – one, entitled “Observations on the Conversion of St. Paul,” and the other, “Observations on the Resurrection of Christ.”

C.H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)
