Matthew 10:32 KJV
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men,
him will I confess also before my Father
which is in heaven.
Still a Christian
Many years ago there was a small dinner party at the other end of London.
The ladies had withdrawn, and under the guidance of one member of the company the conversation took a turn, of which it will be enough here and now to say that it was utterly dishonourable to our Lord.
One of the guests said nothing, but presently asked the host’s permission to ring the bell, and when the servant appeared he ordered his carriage.
He then, with the courtesy of perfect self-command, expressed his regret at being obliged to retire; but explained that he was still a Christian.
Mark the phrase, for it made a deep impression at the time — “Still a Christian.”
Perhaps it occurs to you that the guest who was capable of this act of simple courage must have been a bishop, or at least a clergyman. He was not.
The party was made up entirely of laymen, and the guest in question became the great prime minister of the early years of Queen Victoria. He was the late Sir Robert Peel.
