The Christian Doctrine of the Soul : An Essay (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Christian Doctrine of the Soul: An Essay No one, however, need be perplexed by this fact of the great mystery of the soul's nature or es sence. For it is only one Of many mysteries around us and within us. The body and life itself are kindred and equal mysteries. The body, we say, is material, or composed of matter. But what is matter? Some may ask. What is the real nature or essence Of it? This is a question that has often been asked. But no man can answer it. Indeed, whether matter has any real, or only an ideal existence that is, whether it has any proper, substantial being, or is only an ap pearance, is a point concerning which profoundest thinkers have disagreed for ages. Many different theories have been put forth in exposition of the subject, but still it must he confessed that the real nature or essence of what we call matter is the great unsolved, if not unsolvable, enigma of the scientific world.
