FROM OUR EXCHANGES

[Christian Register.]

It is curious to note in how many ways God has been sought. Show us the Father and that sufficeth us, was a very rational appeal to the disciples. When you come to sift matters all down, that is about the sum total of rational religious desire—show us God; and it certainly is irrational to expect people to develop a warm religious emotion, involving affection for the Supreme Being, provided they have never seen Him, and so far as they can find out He is invisible. It is no escape from the difficulty when we are told that after this life we shall go into the presence of God, and both see and enjoy Him forever. This involves an anthropomorphic conception that a thinking man soon outgrows. Any such sort of future existence would make God a being somewhat like ourselves, whose presence could be measured by some kind of senses.
