A Mighty Sentence

What are some great sentences of history?

On December 22, 1944, the 101st Airborne was encircled by the German Army at Bastogne Belgium. The German commander sent an ultimatum to the American General Anthony McAuliffe. The ultimatum was to surrender. General McAuliffe replied, “Nuts”. With that answer the 101st Airborne went on to be victorious.

“Nuts” what a might sentence.

Anthony McAuliffe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This past Sunday I heard what I consider a great sentence.
“Truth is true whether we live it or not, but truth will not be believed unless we live it.” Ron Shaw, Living In Grace.

A might sentence!

I believe that this sentence is a challenge to enact our Christian Worldview and to be victorious in presenting the truth so that it is believed. Truth believed because we live it.

Romans 12:1-2 Williams Translation
I beg you, therefore, brothers, through these mercies God has shown you, to make a decisive, dedication of your bodies as a living sacrifice, devoted and well-pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.
Stop living in accordance with the customs of this world, but by the new ideals that mold your minds continue to transform yourselves, so as to find and follow God’s will; that is, what is good, well-pleasing to Him, and perfect.
