Indianapolis Age (Newspaper) - September 9, 1882, Indianapolis, Indiana
The late Seymour times a turd a sept. 9, 107.- 82. Lilting but yet out of the great world. August 25,1882. Or. J. E. Monroe i have received two copies of the age no. 20 and 21. I am much pleased with it. The variety and Able articles published in it make it very interesting. The ideas therein contained in relation to god the Bible and Christ have made a great change in Niy mind in reference to these things. From reason and nature As illustrated in your Pax or i am satisfied that in our country and among the various denominations called christians there is much bigotry superstition prejudice and ignorance. A Man who would proclaim these things publicly in this country would be in danger of being mobbed. How is it ave live in a free country yet we dare not express our honest opinions and dictates of our Coli science especially upon tie subject of our existence and destiny. Are the sentiments of your paper and the late Seymour times sustained in your Cou Witry and Are their advocates Ever molested in any Way do the pamphlets and various books As advertised Iii your paper circulate to any extent will you please define your position fully As to your View of god and the beginning and ending of All things Yas there such a Man As Jesus Christ and was he possessed of any divine Power has your Creed a Church does it need one do you Call yourself an infidel or by what name is your belief known has your paper or the books and pamphlets advertised therein any circulation in this country if so in what part of the state if your views Are generally sustained they will certainly in Duce a revolution. If you should publish this letter Don t give my name or residence for in that event i might be Hung Foj advocating or circulating such above letter comes from a Southern state. It is Well written and betrays Marks of being the production of a Superior mind. The writer is informed that the age goes to intelligent subscribers in every state and part of this Broad land and that its circulation and popularity Are steadily increasing. It circulates in Many localities in the writer s own state. The books and pamphlets advertised go off to All parts of the Coli try continually. But the circulation of All should be a Lindred fold greater and will be in time. Our views the writer will learn As he goes on Reading. As to the real existence of Christ scholars Are not United in of Inion. Many Learned men hold that Christ never existed that the Story of his life and himself is mythical. Certain it is that outside of the new testament if this without Date or signatures can be called history there is no historical mention of Jesus Christ. But our correspondent is by this time armed with documents and can read and. Judge the books he ordered having perhaps reached Iii Ere this was in Type. For the age. Tiv it Eligio of e be Down. A Miami ion City mo., a Gist 2g, 1882. Editor of the age time idea that closing one s own eyes prevents others from seeing appears to be generally indulged by believers in supernaturalism. As in the Case of Noah s revel we Are to understand that the sin was committed by Ham a it to looked on and not by the Clergyman who was Down in the shelter of the Gutter to also we Are expected to walk backward Shem and Japheth like and spread a Blanket of Charity upon All like eccentricities of the elect. The Boozy minister was All god had to show for two thousand years hard work and to look Sciare at him in Broad Daylight at a time when he was enjoying himself in Dis Habille was an almost As wicked As a declaration that god s efforts at drowning out crime avas but a mild Success. When we Are told that a thing is True we should be careful not to contrast that thing with other things lest its truth seem doubtful. If god saw fit to give Man the form of Liis own Infinity then is Man created in the image of god and the thing should rest right there for there is no other resting place for the declaration in the universe. Investigation turns everything up Side Down inside out and wrong and first from an orthodox standpoint. The conflict Between science and revelation so called begins. With the first line of scriptural writing and is carried to the last paragraph thereof. There never was a time when there was no time consequently there was no beginning. Matter cannot be evolved from i materiality by any amount of Force consequently there was no creation. The Story of an immaterial creator forming the universe from nothing implies the previous existence of an omnipotent vacuum a god within an infinite vacuum a space. Revelation teaches that the infinite god formed a finite image of himself. Infinity has no Foi a and Liere can be no image thereof. Prev edition declares Gud made Man in his own image. Truth declares made god ii his own ii Paige and Man a performed Liis Job while he m As a barbarian this account for the fact that god was a barbarian in Days of old and that he has changed his character just As times have demanded Llev elation claims that Man must look to god for every lil Essing that All Good is from above. On the other hand All observation proves Man s chief Eil Quot Rrt has Ever been to clothe his deity with All the Noble attributes of which his most Fertile imagination has been Able to conceive. Had a being such As the Christian s god Given unselfishly of his abundance As poor deluded Man has Given of his Jjo Verty then would this Avold be one of Perfec tits indeed. Lusje ration teaches that Man fell from ignorance to Knowle Ige and has Ever held that Progress is . The holy word inf arms us thac Jehovah confounded the language of Man. How about his own language who confounded his word in that Case holy writ informs us that we Are indebted to a creator who requires our constant service. Reason teaches us that the weak rather than the powerful should be the objects of our solicitude. Inspiration declares that Christ was spirit born of the flesh that Man who is flesh May be born of the spirit which gives a Quot stand oif Quot nothing More Christ was god Manifest in the flesh. He took Man s nature at birth and again at the resurrection the same body on both occasions which proves St. Paul s doctrine that there is no Chance for swindling a dead Man out of his own body. From the divine word we Are to understand that trials and afflictions Are calculated to result in Good by drawing us toward him who sends those trials and afflictions upon us but even the lowest degree of instinct should teach a Man though devoid of reason Liat it is smiles and Sunshine that draw Forth the pure love of the human heart which trials May break at fictions subdue but storms and frowns can but repulse and terrify. If this god by his trials and afflictions failed to govern Man according to his own desire when i assessed of All Power both to will and to do As pleased himself their Leasim tells us that Man did nothing More than Justice in executing him for his shabby pretensions. There is nothing very deplorable in the death of one who causes billions to live that they May die. Besides death in t serious when the person is up and about again right away. Let us live in sympathy with those who Mast die from necessity i Ather than for those who Are Able to play death and win a world. If i Hail the Power to Lay Down my life and take it again i would t have the world to Grieve about my suffering if i should try it on. Quot for till age. Yot we ure not truly free. Castleton ind., August 31, 107. Or. Monroe the love of Liberty is born in every heart and in this age of Progress after Omny years of conflict with the heaving Billows of superstition we find that All that has been k new the sacrifices of great and heroic men honest in heart Broad in intellect that yet the dark barbarian Waves Are beating Over our ships of Freedom that still thousands Are lingering upon the verge of the dark age with quivering lips of doubt singing and praying to a mythical god that has never been successfully demonstrated to the minds of Man or can be maintained in this intelligent age. But notwithstanding All this there is great advancement in every Branch of Industry which is the result of great brain Power and is evident that the grand principles of free thought live and Are growing brighter Day by Day until eventually its illumination will Blaze upon the farther Shore. In Fidelity is spreading with a rapidity that challenges the admiration of the entire world and yet ave Are not truly free. Our land is stained Aud polluted with the Dogma of eternal pain the tyrannical dictation of priests who stand at our doorway ready to steal the Sun kissed Dew from the fair Broad of the Rose-lii3ped child. Every True free thinker gives to his child the same individual right to think and believe that he claims for himself. The Quot owls Quot of superstition that for years have been knots upon the Quot dead limbs of the tree of knowledge Quot take advantage of tie liberality of the Parent and Poison with Venem oits Tongue the Liepart find brain that Are wild with Joy and ride leaving Thom in , in darkness where they May Grope until reason l us and blooms. It is a fact of Peculiar that the of relics Are Helphi infidelity to a considerable lit although a great a a in Berof the Quot Brethren Quot from not aware of this most important fact. They to know that there is a general falling Oil Quot in membership All along the line that there is dissension in species of Quot Bossis Quot in which there is a clamor for spoils with but Little attention paid to a reparation for their exit from this cold Earth to a Homo of everlasting glory l beyond the skies and that not a few of Triem Are getting dissatisfied Vith the present outpouring of spiritual manifestation is too ai>i3arent to need further comment. The Church Here has gone to ruin a wave of infidelity has struck her main Mast and she lays dead a wreck upon the breast of orthodoxy. The free thinkers have it Iii nothing but watch with interest the incoming tide bringing with it Many Valu Alile additions to our grand cause there Are a few Good pious members still clinging to the old Hull bit with Little Prospect of a reawakening among the dissenters although they manage to have a protracted Elf Ort occasionally which results very unfavourably to their cause. During these efforts they generally have a children s meeting All the children Are called to the front seat then the minister with the rest of the Quot Brethren Quot following surround these blossoms fresh in the dewy morning of life while they sing some go Oil old hymn like Quot see the mighty Host advancing satan leading Liev. Zeimer a local preacher hero who has been excommunicated for some of his Quot cutting up Quot has accepted a Call to blow his fog Horn in Pete Negley s wheat granary where he will begin As soon As the wheat is removed. The people Are a Little anxious to know what they have done that they should be tortured with his pitiful orthodox Avail. But it is hoped that he Avill Volute out of his wickedness a few copies of that one Hundred ton ii Fidel columbian a the age might be instrumental in l ring ing about the desired resultant Joni the liberals where his intellectuality if to has any can be used in helping poor fallen humanity one step higher. The time has come Ashen every honest Christian believer is compelled to Tackno Valedge that lil eral ism is doing a vast amount of Good that its influence is ennobling and elevating that its avoider Ful advancement is not due to immortality or ignorance but of Ying to Man s inalienable right of thinking out his Avn future unprejudiced unbiased by religious creeds or dogmas. Let the Good Kavork go on May the orthodox creeds still continue to fall before the sickle of Progress and May Universal Liberty truth Justice and mercy be indelibly stamped on every think in Quot brain.
