his soul to Jesus has found the clue to the maze!"
Modern unbelief is so short of the quality that it seized the label,
and has advertised itself as HONEST doubt. It was in dire need of
a character. We lift our feeble voice on behalf of HONEST FAITH.
PROFOUND THOUGHTS ON FAITH AND DOUBT
It has been asserted that God cannot be known. Those who say this declare that they themselves know nothing but phenomena; and therefore they are bound, if candid, to admit that they do not themselves know that God cannot be known. As they confessedly know nothing about it, they should not be offended if we leave them out of our consideration. He who made the world is certainly an intelligent Being; in fact, the highest Intelligence; for in myriads of ways his works display the presence of profound thought and knowledge. Lord Bacon said, "I had rather believe all the fables of the Talmud and the Koran than that this universal frame is without a Mind." This being so, we do in that very fact know God in a measure: ay, and in such a measure that we are prepared to trust him. He that made all things is more truly an object of confidence than all the things that he has made.
It would be a strange Mind that did not make itself known: as strange as fire that did not burn, and light that did not shine. We should find it hard to believe in the eternal solitary confinement of the Being who made the worlds.
