The empty pew, your vacant place at the church, is a vote with the world and against the Christ. The world that is opposed to Christ asks nothing more from you in its enmity to Christ than that you do what Thomas did—stay away.
"I am an Empty Pew. I vote for the world as against God. I deny the Bible. I mock at the preached Word of God. I rail at Christian brotherhood. I laugh at prayer. I break the Fourth Commandment. I am a witness to solemn vows broken. I advise men to eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow they die. I join my voice with every atheist and rebel against human and divine law. I am an Empty Pew. I am a grave in the midst of the congregation. Read my epitaph and be wise."
