"It has been said that in twenty five years more, if the present rate of progress continues, India will become as thoroughly Christian as Great Britain is today. There will be thirty millions of Christians in China, and Japan will be as fully Christian as America is now. The old systems, they tell us, are honey-combed through and through by Christian influence. It looks as if a day may soon come when these systems, struck by vigorous blows, will fall in a tremendous collapse. Meantime, every weapon formed against Christianity breaks in the land that holds it. Already the Lord's right hand hath gotten Him victory."
Justin A. Smith, 1883
"The civilization of Europe, or to call it by it's true name which derives from it's origin, the Christian civilization, is visibly making the conquest of the world. It's triumph is only a matter of time. No one doubts it."
author of The Problem of Evil, probably from the late 1800's as well
