Description

Excerpt from Part I, Is the Shang-Ti of the Chinese Classics the Same Being as Jehovah of the Sacred Scriptures?, And, Part II, What Being Is Designated Shang-Ti in the Chinese Classics and in the Ritual of the State Religion of China Formerly it was considered by some of those who were engaged in translating the Sacred Scriptures into Chinese, that Shangti was a com mon name which fivith more or less propriety, to all objects of worship. It has been so used by some in the translation of the Bible into this language. But the Rev. Dr. Legge, formerly missionary at Hongkong, and now the Professor of Chinese at oxford, has shown with a conclusiveness that utterly precludes all further discussion on that point, in his translation of the Shoo King and the Shi King, that Shangti is the name of a distinct and individual Being, who has been worshipped in China for more than four thousand years, and that Heaven is the synonym of Shangti in designating that Being. Dr. Legge also maintainse with great ability, that the Being called Shangti is the same as Jehovah of the Sacred Scriptures. In Part I, of this pamphlet, I have given the reasons, drawn from various sources, which Show that Shangti is not the same Being as Jehovah. In the second Part I have presented the'evidence drawn from the Chinese classics and other standard writers, from the ritual of the State religion of China, from Imperial Edicts and prayers, that the great object of Chinese worship is deified Heaven; and that Shangti is the designation of this deified object. Hence it follows that Shangti is the name of a false God. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
