Excerpt from Discourses As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isa. 1v. 9. I find a certain perplexity in beginning my dis course this morning. I can find no text at hand exactly suited to my theme. I wish to speak of the supernatural, but I look through the Bible in vain to find that word. Neither Old Testament nor New contains it. They seem to know noth ing of the supernatural. Or shall we say that they know of nothing but the supernatural, and have no more occasion to speak of it than we at noon-day to call attention to the sunlight? In any case, the omission is a significant one, and carries us back to a time when the great problems of the present hour had no existence for the popu lar mind, if even for philosophic speculation, when the vast Sphere of secondary causes which now presses in between the soul and its thought of God was wholly unknown, and when the discus sion which I bring before you to-day of the differ ence between the natural and the supernatural would have seemed utterly gratuitous and irrele vant. For us, however, these two words do exist. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
