Excerpt from The Princeton Review: January-June, 1879
Helpless, indeed, is the condition of those who are left to the imaginations of their own hearts. Conscience may tell them that there is a God but, as they close their eyes against the light of revelation, they can know very little of the divine character or attributes. There is no theory, however absurd, which men professing to be advanced thinkers will not patronize. They will evolve an excellent orator from an ape, and frame a handsome world by a fortuitous combination of atoms. When men do not like to retain God in their knowledge they are given over to a reprobate mind. Professing themselves to be wise, they become fools. Left to the guidance of the light of nature, they know not in what way they are to approach their Maker, nor how they are to obtain his favor. Conscience can find no satisfaction in any thing less than a Divine Instructor.
