Victor Hugo is famous for Les Misérables and the Hunchback of Notre Dame. He once prophesied, “In the 20th Century war will be dead; the scaffold will be dead…” Then came the Boer war, the first and second world wars, the Korean and Vietnamese wars. As sincere and well-meaning as Hugo was, he had an unreal view of mankind. Wars are still with us, hatred is alive and well because man is still a fallen sinful creature. But there is hope. Paul was inspired to write, “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Later he explained, “If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” This is a dark old world, but Jesus is the light of the world.
