Excerpt from Impressions of China, and the Present Revolution: Its Progress and Prospects
It has been said, that the Insurgents are students of Scripture, and anxious for the dissemination of its truths, and each new fact learnt concerning them seems to establish the truth of this statement.
The last work of theirs, received by the Styx, fully justifies the above, for though it is professedly only a work upon political economy, many of the ideas and sentiments set forth in it are certainly drawn from the Scriptures, both of the Old and New Testament, and obviously by themselves; and though these do not always agree with our general deductions from the same source, they yet establish a very important point or two -viz., that they admit the supremacy of Scrip ture, and are desirous of conforming to its require ments.
Nor can their offerings to the Deity be considered an exception, even though these should be esteemed by some as more than thank-offerings, since the ten deney in every age has been towards the material in this respect; in forgetfulness that God is a Spirit, and that they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit. If it be not the special sin of our day and generation.
