The Silences of God - an article by Arthur Custance

Quotes and comments;
- this is one of his 'Doorway Papers'

1. Four centuries of Silence
"Looking back upon those centuries -- which at the outset seemed to hold such promise for so many reasons but which ended up in such a sad denial of everything rewarding that life has to offer when lived as God intends it to be lived -- one cannot help but feel that this disappointing experiment was allowed to run its course while God deliberately remained silent, only that He might show once for all the inability of man to discover the meaning of life by the mere exercise of his own intellect and without the aid of revelation."
- he's referring to the 4 or 5 centuries before Christ.
