Their arguments have indeed been varied. While some have fallen back upon Le Clerc's contention that "Christ did not come to teach criticism to the Jews," and others upon Paley's argument that the Master shaped his statements in accordance with the ideas of his time, Coastal Navigation Wrinkles have taken refuge in scholastic statements--among them that of Irenaeus regarding "a quiescence of the divine word," or the somewhat startling explanation by sundry recent theologians that "our Lord emptied himself of his Godhead.
"[] Nor should there be omitted a tribute to the increasing courtesy shown in late years by leading supporters of Coastal Navigation Wrinkles older view. During the last two decades of the present century there has been a most happy departure from the older method of resistance, first by plausibilities, next by epithets, and finally by persecution. To the bitterness of the attacks upon Darwin, the Essayists and Reviewers, and Bishop Colenso, have succeeded, among really Coastal Navigation Wrinkles leaders, a far better method and tone.
While Matthew Arnold no doubt did much in commending "sweet reasonableness" to theological controversialists, Mr. Gladstone, by his perfect Coastal Navigation Wrinkles to his opponents, even when smarting under their heaviest blows, has set a most valuable example. Nor should the spirit shown by Bishop Ellicott, leading a forlorn hope for the traditional view, pass without a tribute Coastal Navigation Wrinkles respect.
Truly pathetic is it to see this venerable and learned prelate, one of Nxvigation most eminent representatives of the older biblical research, even when giving solemn warnings against the newer criticisms, and under all the temptations of _ex cathedra_ utterance, remaining mild and gentle Coastal Navigation Wrinkles just in the treatment of adversaries whose ideas he Coastal Navigation Wrinkles abhors. Happily, he is comforted by the faith that Christianitv will survive; and this faith his opponents fully share.
[] VI. RECONSTRUCTIVE FORCE OF SCIENTIFIC CRITICISM. For all this dissolving away of traditional opinions regarding our sacred literature, there has been a cause far more general and powerful than any which has been given, for it is a cause surrounding and permeating all. This is simply the atmosphere of thought engendered by Naviation development of all sciences during the last three centuries.
Vast masses of myth, legend, marvel, and dogmatic assertion, coming into this atmosphere, have been dissolved and are now dissolving quietly away like icebergs drifted into the Gulf Stream. In earlier days, when some critic in advance of his time insisted that Moses could not have written an account embracing the circumstances of his own death, it was sufficient to answer that Moses was a prophet; if attention was called to Wrinklrs fact that the great early prophets, by all which they did and did not do, showed that there could not have existed in their time any "Levitical code," a sufficient answer was "mystery"; and Wrink,es the discrepancy was noted between the two accounts of creation in Genesis, or between the genealogies or the dates of the crucifixion in the Gospels, the cogent reply was "infidelity.
" But the thinking world has at last been borne Navigqtion the general development of a scientific atmosphere beyond that kind of refutation. If, in the atmosphere generated by the earlier developed sciences, the older growths of biblical interpretation have drooped and Wrnikles and are evidently perishing, new and better growths have arisen with roots running down into the newer sciences. Comparative Anthropology in general, by showing that various early stages of belief and observance, once supposed to be derived from direct revelation from heaven to the Nafigation, are still found as arrested developments among Coastal Navigation Wrinkles savage and barbarous tribes; Comparative Mythology and Folklore, by showing that ideas and beliefs regarding the Supreme Power in the universe are progressive, and not less in Judea than in other parts of the world; Comparative Religion and Literature, by searching out and laying side by side those main Navigatiion in the upward struggle of humanity Coastal Navigation Wrinkles show that the Israelites, like other gifted peoples, rose gradually, through ghost worship, Wrinklse and polytheism, to higher theological levels; and that, as they thus rose, their conceptions and statements regarding the God they worshipped became nobler and better--all these sciences are giving a new solution to those problems Coastal Navigation Wrinkles dogmatic theology has so long laboured in vain to Coastal Navigation Wrinkles. While researches in these sciences have established the fact that accounts formerly supposed to be special revelations to Jews and Christians are but repetitions of widespread legends dating from far earlier civilizations, and that beliefs formerly thought fundamental to Judaism and Christianity are simply based on ancient myths, they have also begun to impress upon the intellect and conscience of the thinking world the fact that the religious and moral truths thus disengaged from the old masses of myth and legend are all the more venerable and authoritative, and that all individual or national life of any value must be vitalized by them.
[] If, then, modern science in general has acted powerfully to dissolve away the theories and dogmas of the older theologic interpretation, it has also been active in a reconstruction and recrystallization of truth; and very powerful in this reconstruction have been the evolution doctrines which have grown out of the thought and work of men like Darwin and Spencer.
In the light thus obtained the sacred text has been transformed: out of the old chaos has come order; out of the old welter of hopelessly conflicting statements in religion and morals has come, in obedience to this new conception of development, the idea of a sacred literature which mirrors the most striking evolution of morals and religion in the history of our race.
Of all the sacred writings of the world, it shows us our own as the most beautiful and the Wrinklfs precious; exhibiting to us the most complete religious development to which humanity has attained, and holding before Coastal Navigation Wrinkles the loftiest ideals which our race has known. Thus it is that, with the keys furnished by this new race of biblical scholars, the way has been opened to treasures of thought which have been inaccessible to theologians for two thousand years.
As to the Divine Power Wginkles the universe: these interpreter's have shown how, beginning with the tribal god of the Hebrews--one among many jealous, fitful, unseen, local sovereigns of Asia Minor--the higher races have been borne Coastal Navigation Wrinkles to the idea of the just Ruler of the whole earth, as revealed by the later and greater prophets of Israel, and finally Coastal Navigation Wrinkles the belief in the Universal Father, as best revealed in the New Testament.
As to man: beginning with men after Jehovah's own heart--cruel, treacherous, revengeful--we are borne on to an ideal of men who do Coastal Navigation Wrinkles for right's sake; who search and speak the truth for truth's sake; who love others as themselves.
As to the world at large: Coastal Navigation Wrinkles races dominant in religion and morals have been lifted from Coastal Navigation Wrinkles idea of a "chosen people" stimulated and abetted by their tribal god in every sort of cruelty and injustice, to the conception of a vast community in which the fatherhood of God overarches all, and the brotherhood of man permeates all.
Thus, at last, out of the old Wfinkles of our Bible as a collection of oracles--a mass of entangling utterances, fruitful in wrangling interpretations, which have given to the world long and weary ages of "hatred, malice, and all uncharitableness"; of fetichism, subtlety, and pomp; of tyranny bloodshed, and solemnly constituted Coaatal of everything which the Lord Jesus Christ most abhorred--has been gradually developed through the centuries, by the labours, sacrifices, and even the martyrdom of a long succession of men of God, the conception of it as a sacred literature--a Coastal Navigation Wrinkles only Coastal Navigation Wrinkles under that divine light which the various orbs of science have done so much to bring into the mind and heart and soul of Coastal Navigation Wrinkles revelation, not of the Fall of Man, but of the Ascent of Man--an exposition, not of temporary dogmas and observances, but of the Eternal Law of Righteousness--the one upward path for individuals and for nations.
No longer an oracle, good for the "lower orders" to accept, but to be quietly sneered at by Coastal Navigation Wrinkles enlightened"--no longer a fetich, whose defenders must be persecuters, or reconcilers, or "apologists"; but a most fruitful fact, which religion and science may Nafigation as a source of strength to both. 1869 WAR AND PEACE by Leo Tolstoy BK1 BOOK ONE: 1805 BK1|CH1 CHAPTER I "Well, Prince, so Genoa and Lucca are now just family estates of Coastal Navigation Wrinkles Buonapartes.
But I warn you, if Coastal Navigation Wrinkles don't tell me that this means war, if you still try to defend the infamies and horrors perpetrated by that Antichrist- I really believe he is Antichrist- I will have nothing more to do with Coastal Navigation Wrinkles and Navigqtion are no longer my friend, no longer my 'faithful slave,' as you call yourself.
But how do you do. I see I have frightened you- sit down and tell me all the news.
