Σελίδα 56 - If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.
Σελίδα 53 - The supreme Judge, by which all controversies of religion are to be determined, and all decrees of councils, opinions of ancient writers, doctrines of men, and private spirits, are to be examined, and in whose sentence we are to rest, can be no other but the Holy Spirit speaking in the Scripture.
Σελίδα 46 - And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, saying, Let us alone ; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth ? art thou come to destroy us ? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
Σελίδα 29 - Hume's oft-repeated sophism, that no testimony can establish an alleged fact which is at variance with common experience ; for it must not be denied that some few instances of the sort alluded to rest upon testimony, in itself, thoroughly unimpeachable; nor is the import of the evidence in these cases at all touched by the now well-understood doctrine concerning spectral illusions.
Σελίδα 49 - Bible, excluding spiritual intervention by odylic channels in toto, and accounting for everything physically, then will the covers of the Bible prove but pasteboard barriers.

Σελίδα 40 - These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.
Σελίδα 48 - Whatever physiological law accounts for odylic phenomena in all ages, •will in the end inevitably carry itself through the whole Bible, where it deals with the phenomena of soul and body as mutually related, acting and reacting. A large portion of the Bible, its prophecies, ecstasies, visions, trances, theophauies, and angelophanies, are more or less tinged with odylic characteristics.
Σελίδα 30 - She speaks to him, moves his furniture, touches his dress, his person, — all automatic action of some brain en rapport with that locality! She sings, plays the guitar or piano, takes a pencil and writes, and he sees the pencil in free space tracing his wife's autograph, — automatic still! She shows him a cloudy hand; nay, a luminous form, and smiles and speaks as when in life; that is, an optical illusion, or hallucination, or a particle exhaled from her body has impinged on his sensitive brain,...
Σελίδα 44 - ... no other than the spirits of the wicked, that enter into men that are alive and kill them, unless they can obtain some help against them.
