الصفحة 225 - And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts, came to Ephesus. And finding certain disciples, he said unto them ; Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed ? And they said unto him; We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
الصفحة 153 - Religion is not true because the Evangelists and Apostles taught it, but they taught it because it is true.
الصفحة 8 - While thus willing to bear my share of the responsibility for the translation of this book, I must decline to be throughout identified with the author. Dr. Kahnis is a Lutheran divine, belonging to the High Church section of that denomination, who, in their views of the Church and the sacraments, come pretty near the opinions entertained by the Ultra High Church party in the Anglican Church...
الصفحة 154 - has ever ventured to draw the same inference in profane history ? If Livy, Polybius, Dionysius, and Tacitus relate the very same event, it may be the very same battle, the very same siege, each one differing so much in the details that those of the one completely give the lie to those of the other, has any one, for that reason, ever denied the event itself in which they agree...
الصفحة 224 - Reformation, in the manner in which this idea is at present understood, and especially in the manner in which we are reminded of it, Lutheranism will be reformed back into heathenism, and Christianity out of the world. IX. In matters of faith, reason ; and as regards the life, conscience, may be called the Popes of our age. XI. Conscience cannot pardon sins. XXI. In the sixteenth century the pardon of sins cost money after all ; in the nineteenth it may be had without money, for people help themselves...
الصفحة 209 - Discourses, gives his testimony in the following language : " Those who at that time belonged to the rising generation will remember with what power this book influenced the minds of the young, being written in all the vigour of youthful enthusiasm, and bearing witness to the neglected, undeniable religious element in human nature. That which constitutes the peculiar characteristic of religion, namely, that it is an independent element in human nature, had fallen in oblivion by a one-sided rational...
الصفحة 23 - Sum certus me esse rem cogitantem, nunquid ergo etiam scio quid requiratur ut de aliqua re sim certus? nempe in hac prima cognitione nihil aliud est, quam clara quaedam et distincta perceptio ejus quod affirmo; quae sane non sufficeret ad me certum de rei veritate reddendum, si posset unquam contingere, ut aliquid quod ita clare et distincte perciperem falsum esset: ac proinde jam videor pro regula generali posse statuere, illud omne esse verum quod valde clare et distincte percipio.
الصفحة 9 - It would have been easy to remove or alter these few passages ; but altogether apart from the consideration, that by so doing I should have misrepresented the Author, I thought that this very circumstance would impart additional interest to the book. For, in this his Lutheranizing tendency, our Author does not by any means stand isolated. This ultra-Lutheranism, on the contrary, is now in the ascendant in Germany, sweeping, like a powerful tide, everything before it. How little soever we in this...
الصفحة 129 - ... Christ, a prophet, an inspired man. The human spirit, being a breath of God, does not perish ; our spirit, separated from its body by death, enters into a connection with some other body. Thus Edelmann taught a kind of metempsychosis. What he taught had been thoroughly and ingeniously said in France and England ; but from a German theologian, and that with such eloquent coarseness, with such a mastery in expatiating in blasphemy, such things were unheard of.
الصفحة 45 - Protestantism was a protestation against all truth which pretended to remain truth; against all that is above our senses, and against every religion which by faith put an end tn dispute. To him religion was only a means of education for the head, in order to furnish materials for never-ceasing talk, but by no means a matter of the heart and the life. His liberty of thinking was freedom from all that was and is thought, the licentiousness of empty thinking, without substance and aim.
