Universalist Quote of the Day #103

“If, therefore, the world is to end in 1843, or any subsequent period, we have no evidence for believing that any one has been ‘let into the secret’ as to the precise time; neither is it at all certain that the scriptures used by Mr. Miller and others, to support their visionary theory, have any sort of reference to the subjects to which they apply them.

The better way is, for people to attend to the concerns of today, of the present; ‘do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly;’ ‘lead a quiet and peaceful life, in all godliness and honesty;’ give heed to the internal coming and kingdom of Christ, and not be in a worry about the ‘end of the world,’ or about the day or manner of our death.”

–Rev. John Moore, 1843
