John Knox The Sharpened Sword
The land of Scotland and the world owes much to John Knox. He spent his life with a sword in one hand and a Bible in the other and he wasn't afraid to use either. When he fought off one danger he often found himself headed straight for another.
He was a body-guard before he became a preacher and then after a vicious castle siege he ended up as a galley-slave on a French frigate. Knox spent many months as a prisoner of war before he was eventually released to another battle. There he took up the sword of God's Word and fought for the minds and souls of his countrymen.
John Knox always stood with his convictions — biblical and political. He believed that men and women should be free to speak and learn and live.
However, John knew that true liberty came only when God's Word was preached.
And this was what he was determined to do, though many stood against him, including Mary Queen of Scots.
