CREED OF CHRISTENDOM; ;
FOUNDATIONS AND SUPERSTRUCTURE.
WILLIAM RATHBONE GREG.
« THE PRAYER OF AJAX WAS FOR LIGHT."
“I should, perhaps, be a happier, at all events a more useful, man, if my mind were otherwise constituted. But so it is: and even with regard to Christianity itself, like certain plants, I crecp towards the light, even though it draw me away
I from the more nourishing warınth. Yea, I should do so, even if the ligut made its way through a rent in the wall of the Temple."-COLERIDGE.
“Perplex'd in faith, but pure in deeds,
At last he beat his music out;
There lives more faith in honest doubt,
He would not make his judgment blind ;
He faced the spectres of the mind, And laid them: thus he came at length “To find a stronger faith his own;
And Power was with him in the night,
Which makes the darkness and the light,
“But in the darkness and the cloud."
“No inquirer can fix a direct and clear-sighted gaze towards Truth, who is casting side glances all the while on the prospects of his soul.”—MARTINEAU.
