Seite 127 - For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you ; but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Heavenly Father forgive your trespasses.
Seite 127 - And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Seite 86 - ... inconsolable tears ; and, whether in triumphant or defeated lands, a shudder of orphanage and widowhood — a chill of woe and death — runs far and wide through the world. The meek moon breaks the dissipating veil of the conflict, and rolls its calm splendor above the dead. And see now how much woe man has mingled with the inevitable evils of the universe ! See now the fierceness of his passion, the folly of his wickedness, witnessed by the torn standards, the broken wheels, the pools of clotted...
Seite 24 - ... and again and again come to lap there of that which cannot fill, and which never can satisfy, it is the glory of spiritual truth — of inward life, and peace, and righteousness — that with ever-enlarging capacity there is an ever-enlarging abundance, and as we crave more the more comes to us. ALL evil, in fact the very existence of evil, is inexplicable until we refer to the paternity of God. It hangs a huge blot in the universe until the orb of divine love rises behind it. In that apposition...
Seite 40 - Profaneness is a low, grovelling vice. He who indulges it is no gentleman. I care not what his stamp may be in society, — I care not what clothes he wears, or what culture he boasts — despite all his refinement, the light and habitual taking of God's name in vain betrays a coarse nature and a brutal will.
Seite 41 - Profaneness is an awful vice ! Once more, I ask, whose name is it you so lightly use ! That holy name of God ! Have you ever pondered its meaning ? Have you ever thought what it is that you mingle thus with your passion and your wit...
Seite 41 - Profaneness is a mean vice. It indicates the grossest ingratitude. According to general estimation, he who repays kindness with contumely, he who abuses his friend and benefactor, is deemed pitiful and wretched. And yet, O profane one ! whose name is it you handle so lightly ? It is that of your best Benefactor ! You, whose blood would boil to hear the venerable names of your earthly parents hurled about in scoffs and jests, abuse, without compunction and without thought, the name of your Heavenly...
Seite 86 - ... streets roll out their tides of acclamation, and the organ heaves from its groaning breast the peal of thanksgiving. But, under that tumultuous joy, there are bleeding bosoms and inconsolable tears. And, whether in triumphant or defeated lands, a shudder of orphanage and widowhood, a chill of woe and death runs far and wide through the world. The meek moon breaks the dissipating vail of the conflict, and rolls its calm splendor above the dead.
Seite 42 - Have you ever thought what it is that you mingle thus with your passion and your wit' ? It is the name of Him whom the angels worship, whom the heaven of heavens can not contain ! 5.
Seite 41 - There is no organic symmetry in the narrative which is ingrained with oaths ; and the blasphemy which bolsters an opinion does not make it any more correct. Nay, the use of profane oaths argues a limited range of ideas, and a consciousness of being on the wrong side ; and, if we can find no other phrases through which to vent our choking passion, we had better repress that passion.
