Christianity an Embodiment of the Life of Christ : A Sermon Before the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, at the Seventy-Ninth Annual Meeting, Held at Cleveland, Ohio, October 2, 1888 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Christianity an Embodiment of the Life of Christ: A Sermon Before the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, at the Seventy-Ninth Annual Meeting, Held at Cleveland, Ohio, October 2, 1888 It was said at the beginning that embodiment was a necessity of life it is not for us to say that this is true of the infinite principle of all life. We may not declare that incarnation is the law of the Eternal Spirit, but we have learned in our day that the conception of an absent and far-off God is pagan, and that God, immanent in nature and in the world, is the truth Of Holy Scripture. There is a Christian pantheism which sees in every cosmic or psychic force the divine power manifested; which interprets the unfolding leaf and ﬂower or the uprising of a great people alike, as the Signs of God's life revealing itself. We may not declare embodiment to be a necessity of the divine life, but we are taught of the Spirit that in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Central, luminous, glorious, in Scripture is the revelation of the God-man. In the person of the Christ this fact of the incarna tion has entered into our human history.
