For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
Page 124 - Woe unto thee, Chorazin ! woe unto thee, Bethsaida ! for if the mighty works which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
Page 310 - The foregoing generations beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs?
Page 215 - ... the same principles and distinctions of moral good and evil. The paganism of the ancient world, produced, indeed, abominable gods, who, on earth, would have been shunned or punished as monsters ; and, who offered, as a picture of supreme happiness, only crimes to commit, or passions to satiate.
