Description

Excerpt from Temporal Power: A Study in Supremacy The statement is simple and terse; it is evidently intended to be wholly comprehensive. Its decisive, almost abrupt tone would seem to forbid either question or argument. The old world narrator of the sublime event thus brie y chronicled was a poet of no mean quality, though moved by the natural conceit of man to give undue importance to the earth as his Own particular habitation. The perfect confidence with which he explains 'god' as making 'two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, the lesser light to rule the night, ' is touching to the verge of pathos; and the additional remark which he throws in, as it were casually, He made the stars also, ' cannot but move us to admiration. How childlike the simplicity of the soul which could so venture to deal with the inexplicable and tremendous problem Of the Universe! How self-centred and sure the faith which could so arrange the work of Infinite and Eternal forces to suit its own limited intelligence! It is easy and natural to believe that 'god, ' or an everlasting Power of Goodness and Beauty called by that name, 'created the heavens and the earth, ' but one is often tempted to think that an altogether different and rival element must have been concerned in the making of Man.
