Challenged the Almighty, killed by a gnat



"About a quarter of a century ago an infidel got up on one of the heights of the Catskill Mountains, and in the presence of some atheistic companions defied the God of heaven to show Himself in battle. He swung his sword to and fro, and challenged the Almighty to meet him in single combat. The Almighty paid no attention to him, of course, but He just commissioned a little gnat, so small that it could scarcely be seen, to lodge in his wind-pipe and choke him to death."

One may raise his hand in defiance of Almighty God, but he cannot do it with impunity. Soon or late his wickedness will revert back upon him.
