Essence of Reason (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Essence of Reason See Rev. 21 chapter, and 8 verse. For further proof about such a place turn to Rev. 19 chap., and 20 verse, and many other places in the Bible. Hellfire, brimstone, and the devils are mentioned. Such tales of love and vice, were distilled into my young mind at home, and in the church as well. Just think, what poor children are taught to believe. No matter how unreasonable the Bible may appear to y, ou you must believe. No matter how impossible the miracles may seem, you must believe. N o matter how cruel the laws your heart must approve of them all. This is what the Church calls liberty of thought. W here is the evidence that Christ was, and is God? Who can. Furnish the evidence that there is a God that made all things from nothing Where is the evidence that the places called Heaven and Hell exist There is none. Where is the evidence that angels, ghosts, devils and gods ex ist? There is none. Have those beings been seen or touched Do any of our senses certify to their existence? No. We now know that Heaven is not just above the clouds, and that Hell is not just below the earth. The telescope has done away with the ancient Heaven, and the revolving world has quenched the ﬂames of the ancient Hell. Those imaginary worlds have disappeared for good. Since I received the new search light of rea son I applied it to the Bible, to see if it would stand inspection on what I was taught by my parents, and by preachers of the Gospel.
