Whose name is really extinct?July 24, 2018 Save Article
“The grass withers, and the flower thereof falls away: But the word of the Lord endures forever.” 1 Peter 1:24-25
Many centuries ago there was a Roman emperor named Diocletian who was known for his hatred of Christianity. He hated the Bible so much that he took a Bible and burned it. Then on top of that burned Bible he erected a monument.
Chiseled on that monument were these words:
“Extincto nomini christianorum” — “The name of Christian is extinct.”
Over the years many like Diocletian have sought to eradicate the Bible and Christianity, but for naught. The Bible is the incorruptible Word of God, and the foul breath of time and the gnawing tooth of decay cannot destroy the Word of God!
Purchase a Bible this week for the sole purpose of giving it away. Then ask God to find that special someone for you to give it to.
