his soul to Jesus has found the clue to the maze!"
Modern unbelief is so short of the quality that it seized the label,
and has advertised itself as HONEST doubt. It was in dire need of
a character. We lift our feeble voice on behalf of HONEST FAITH.
PROFOUND THOUGHTS ON FAITH AND DOUBT
Faith is a great worker. The men of strong convictions fashion the world upon their anvils. Confidence girds a man's loins, and nerves him to the putting forth of all his energy. In the eleventh chapter of his Epistle to the Hebrews, Paul brings forth a bead-roll of faith's heroes, and erects an Arc de Triomphe to their memory. The names stand out in capitals of light, ABEL, ENOCH, NOAH, ABRAHAM; and the sculptured scenes are such as these, — "subdued kingdoms," — "stopped the mouths of lions," — "quenched the violence of fire." If the panegyrist of faith ,comes to a pause it is not because matter fails him; but he exclaims, "What shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthah; of David also, and Samuel, and of the Prophets."
