The Right Thought of God

The significance of the relation of our concept of Deity to our spiritual life was forcibly expressed by Emerson in his famous "divinity address" when he said, "The doctrine of the divine nature being forgotten, a sickness infests and dwarfs the constitution."

To entertain the least error is to court disability, but to cherish a false sense of God is to yield our thought to the influence of an all-pervasive blight, and hazard the shipwreck of all faith. The realization of this fact gives special interest to the comments of the religious press respecting the late Slocum and Norge disasters, for they go to show that while many have entirely given up the traditional thought of the divine relation to these dreadful events, others still cling to a view which would do credit to the vigorous old-time declarations of God's responsibility for evil, and His utilization thereof.
