The Signs of the Times

Your article on the decrease of students in the seminaries, and the vacancies occurring in the pulpits, points unmistakably to the signs of the times whereof Jesus spake. This flux and flow in one direction, and so generally apparent, tend to one ultimate; namely, the final spiritualization of all things—of all codes, modes, hypotheses, and of man and the universe. How can it be otherwise, since God is Spirit, and the origin of all that really is, and this great fact is to be verified in just this way.

Since 1877 these special signs of the times have increased year by year. My book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," was published in 1875. Note, if you please, that many points in theology and materia medica at that date undisturbed are now agitated, modified, and disappearing; and the more spiritual modes and significations are adopted.
