Description

Excerpt from A Discourse Delivered Before the Willimantic Spiritualist Society, at Willimantic, Conn., On Sunday, March 21, 1886 To the Christian investigator it comes with a peculiar claim to respect. The culture of the world is very much running to materialism - to the old Sadduceeism which said there is 'no spirit; and Spiritualism comes in to antagonize this deadliest foe to Christianity. Many is the man who has been converted to a belief in immortality by it; many a man has been brought by it within the Christian fold. Lord Brougham said: Even in the most cloudless skies of skepticism I see a rain-cloud, if it be no bigger than a man's hand. It is modern Spiritualism. Joseph Cook said, in one of his public lectures, that he was not sure but Christianity, in its struggle with prevailing unbelief, would have to appeal to it for help. Then again, the Bible is full of Spiritualism. The argument against Spiritualism is an argument against the Bible. Thus a leading scientist, in writing against Spiritualism, declares that there never has been, in all time, a manifestation that has appeared to come from the spiritual world that could not be explained upon natural princi ples. To his clear mind there was no use in denying a part unless the whole was denied. Then again, we are told in the New Testament that there will be a great spiritual outpouring and experience - in other words, great spiritual phenomena in the last days. I refer to all these considerations in support of my statement that this subject has a special claim on the Christian investigator.
