The Religion of Spiritualism : Its Phenomena and Philosophy (Classic Reprint)
The angels of the Bible are ministering spirits, who, from their very nature and constitution, are best adapted to the work of guardianship and ministration, and the work is best adapted to their growth and development. Such guardianship is una Vailing unless the spirits can communicate with those they pro tect. T liat they can do so, he proves by the Bible, the ancients, and the fathers and leaders of the Church. Having thus fortified himself with authority, he brings forward the heavy artillery of modern phenomena, held in reserve. He would not indorse the manifestations given at public Circles, regard ing the rappings as a humbug, until forced on his attention by rappings and spirit writing in his own family. He felt the presence of spirits and conversed with them, yet he remained ln doubt of the reality of Spiritualism. His educational preju dices stood in his way, and an article he published at that time gives a doubtful sound. He believes ln sp1r1t communion, but discards the manifestations.
In 1853 he continued his investigation of Spiritualism. Be lieving it to be the prince of humbugs, he endeavored to detect and expose it. Through the mediumship of a colored servant-girl in his family, he was first convinced that the phe nomena could not be explained by any law of physics or meta physics with which he was acquainted.
