It does not matter whether 50,000 espouse its cause,
or only five,
or only one.
Truth does not reign by the ballot box,
or by the counting of heads:
it abideth for ever.
All the tongues of men and of angels cannot make truth more true;
and all the howlings of devils and doubters
cannot transform it into a lie.
Glory be to God for this!
—C. H. Spurgeon, “An Address for Sad Times,” in Only a Prayer Meeting! (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1901), p. 146.
