More > us the beginning of everything, what and how He created in six days which we physically see around us and what our eyes can see far beyond. God commanded man to rule over all His other creations. He chose the Israelites to be His special people. The Old Testament is the shadow of the things then coming, most of which have already happened. The Old Testament tells the likeness of things to come that we cannot see. The Israelites then are the Christians now. God gave the Israelites the promised land; Christians will go to heaven and the disobedient will be thrown to hell. Further study proves more.< Less

In making the most that he can, honestly, out of life’s opportunities for gain and joy, he best shows his thankfulness to the God who placed him in the world. Monastic Series Vol. 9< Less

This is a classic reprint of a hard-to-find, religious treatise. It posits a fair & rational exposition that provides authoritative timeline context to its argument & refutation (historical... More > analysis). Simply stated, it dispassionately questions the factual existence of Jesus and the Apostles, while calmly & intelligently questioning and/or discrediting some of the "superstitions," historical atrocities, and general religious assumptions of the Christian faith, with regard to the benefit, good sense, and integrity of the common man. It was written during the height of the golden age of freethought in America (circa 1900), even though it was penned (by text evidence) in the United Kingdom.
