FOOD FOR THINKING CHRISTIANS

WHY EVIL WAS PERMITTED AND KINDRED TOPICS

„To make all see, what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God.” „Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:—that in the dispensation of the fullness of times, he might gather together in one, all things in Christ.” Eph. 1:8, and 3:4,5,9.

PREFACE

THE design of this pamphlet is, first to supply to such Christians as are alive and fully consecrated, and hungering and thirsting after a fuller knowledge of „Our Father” and his plans, what we believe to be „meat in due season;” leading such to perform all their consecration vows: secondly, to awaken those who are asleep in Zion—showing those who are not truth-hungry, what they are too much occupied with worldly plans to know, viz., that they are starving for the „good word of God,” though they say—We are „rich and increased in goods and have need of nothing.”

„I love to tell the Story!
More wonderful it seems,
Than all the golden fancies
Of all our golden dreams:
I love to tell the Story!
It did so much for me;
And that is just the reason
I tell it now to thee.”

It is our part, under heavenly direction, to thus scatter the food—the seeds of thoughts; it is God’s part to water and give the increase—in some thirty, some sixty, and in some a hundred-fold to his praise. We leave the results with him.
