1894: About the 'Holy Bible'

KeelyNetSomebody ought to tell the truth about the Bible.

The preachers dare not, because they would be driven from their pulpits. Professors in colleges dare not, because they would lose their salaries.

Politicians dare not. They would be defeated. Editors dare not. They would lose subscribers.

Merchants dare not, because they might lose customers.

Men of fashion dare not, fearing that they would lose caste.

Even clerks dare not, because they might be discharged.

And so I thought I would do it myself. There are many millions of people who believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God-millions who think that this book is staff and guide, counselor and consoler;

that it fills the present with peace and the future with hope-millions who believe that it is the fountain of law, Justice and mercy,

and that to its wise and benign teachings the world is indebted for its liberty, wealth and civilization-millions who imagine that this book is a revelation from the wisdom and love of God to the brain and heart of man-

millions who regard this book as a torch that conquers the darkness of death, and pours its radiance on another world-a world without a tear.

They forget its ignorance and savagery, its hatred of liberty, its religious persecution; they remember heaven, but they forget the dungeon of eternal pain.
