Ellison: Trust While Life Is Normal

“The typical orthodox Christian lays great stress on correct doctrine about God, but Israel’s ancient sin is all too often his as well. It is not so difficult to trust, when all the old landmarks disappear and chaos seems to be resuming its sway, for then even the unbeliever is forced to throw himself on God, if he is to survive. It is amid the great uniformities of life, hemmed in by the great gods of “Egypt,” the state, public opinion, and economic pressure, that we find it hardest not to make concessions to the world.”

H. L. Ellison, Ezekiel: The Man and His Message, 79.
