“There are but two alternatives—-humble faith, or absolute infidelity ; and he who adopts the last alternative is without hope, for he is “without God in the world.” He may tell you he has a God ; but his God is like what Lord Bacon calls “The Idols of the Mind.” And where is the difference between an idol of the imagination and an idol of the hands ? The worship of both is alike—-idolatry. He who brings his perverted reason to set up a god in the room of revelation, is an idolater, and must perish everlastingly.” —W.C. Baynes, 1896
