The Creed Or a Philosophy (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Creed or a Philosophy
The Church has been, and still is, the great school of manners. It has purified and sweetened civilisa tion, and has produced the gentleman and the lady of our times; but an enemy has sown tares in it, and these tares are apt to overshadow and stiﬂe the crop. Anything like an attack upon current phrases and ideas, implies the charge of heresy, and against that every religious community has always had its weapons, and always will have.
I will not attempt any lengthened apology for the position in which I now return to the subject of this volume. The world is rather sick of apologies, and is of the opinion that, so far as a man excuses himself, so far does he accuse himself also, seeing that his life ought to speak for itself.
