Excerpt from A Sermon, Preached at St. Paul's Church, Brighton, on St. Luke's Day, 1858 In this rejoice not, that the spirits are made subject unto you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in Heaven. - Sr. Luke x, 20. I need not tell you, my Brethren, for it is in every one's mouth, and wherever we go, we hear and read it, that we are living in an age of progress - an age of intellectual research and discovery, of mechanical and social activity, increased and increasing. Making all allowance for the tendency which is in us to think most largely of what is nearest at hand, - the men of every successive generation accounting their own times more marvellous than any which have gone before, some for better, some for worse, according to their several tempers and opinions, -making allowance for this, the coolest and least imaginative and best informed judgments agree to call this truly a wonderworking age: All of us observe it; all who know the Scriptures are hourly reminded of the prophetic warning, they can hardly help saying to themselves Many are running to and fro, and knowledge is increasing and if they are thoughtful, and have a deep sense of their own and others responsibility, must they not also call to mind the other prophecy connected with this There shall be'a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even unto that same And will not this make them very anxious, full of prayer and religious forethought, lest they themselves, and those whom they can influence, should be unawares bringing on that time of trouble, by some evil use of this time of progress? I make no question, but that the part of God's creation in which man's present lot and trial is appointed - this earth on which we are now abiding for a time - is daily becoming more and more comfort able, in bodily and outward things, for mankind to abide on. And this I suppose is what people principally mean, when they speak of the spread of civilization and commerce, of a certain degree of law.
