The most cultured man,


If led by carnality, will at times fail to be a gentleman.


The most uncultured man,


If Spirit filled, will not fail to be a gentleman.

The great I am,

Not “I used to be” in days of yore,

And never will be again, ever anymore.

Not I hope to have an important say,

In some far away future day.

I am – the ever present, all mighty One

In Spirit, in Father, in redemptive Son.

Object. The China Inland Mission was formed under a deep sense of China s pressing need, and with an earnest desire, constrained by the love of CHRIST and the hope of His coming, to obey His command to preach the Gospel to every creature. Its aim is, by the help of GOD, to bring the Chinese to a saving knowledge of the love of GOD in CHRIST, by means of itinerant and localised work throughout the whole of the interior of China.

Character. The Mission is Evangelical, and embraces members of all the leading denominations of Christians.

Methods. Methods somewhat unusual and peculiar were adopted for working the newly-proposed organisation. It was determined :

1. That duly qualified candidates for missionary labour should be accepted without restriction as to denomination, provided there was soundness in the faith in all fundamental truths.

2. That all who went out as Missionaries should go in dependence upon God for temporal supplies, with the clear understanding that the Mission did not guarantee any income whatever ; and knowing that, as the Mission would not go into debt, it could only minister to those connected with it as the funds sent in from time to time might allow.

Support. The Mission is supported entirely by the free-will offerings of the Lord’s people. The needs of the work are laid before God in prayer, no personal solicitations or collections being authorised. No more is expended than is thus received, going into debt being considered inconsistent with the principle of entire dependence upon God.  [*]

““[I suppose the reason] we all jumped at the Origin [Origin of Species] was because the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores.””

Operationally, God is beginning to resemble not a ruler but the last fading smile of a cosmic Cheshire cat.

Evolution…is the most powerful and the most comprehensive idea that has ever arisen on Earth.  — Sir Julian Huxley

                – ‘Education and Humanism’, in Essays of a Humanist (1964), 125.

To speculate without facts is to attempt to enter a house of which one has not the key, by wandering aimlessly round and round, searching the walls and now and then peeping through the windows. Facts are the key. — Sir Julian Huxley

– ‘Heredity I: The Behaviour of the Chromosomes’, in Essays in Popular Science (1926), 1-2.

Huxley is quoted here to expose his true, carnal nature.  The last quote above seems typical of souls who are trying convincing themselves that black is white and down is up.

Julian Huxley, Sir, born 6/22/1887 at London.  He was a biologist/philosopher and dubbed “Darwin’s Bulldog.”

God can take out

The carnal pout

(The rest of us

Wish He would).

And in its place

Put His great grace,

So you see things

As you should.

Savior, like a shepherd lead us, much we need Thy tender care;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed us, for our use Thy folds prepare.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.

We are Thine, Thou dost befriend us, be the guardian of our way;
Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us, seek us when we go astray.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Hear, O hear us when we pray.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Hear, O hear us when we pray.

Thou hast promised to receive us, poor and sinful though we be;
Thou hast mercy to relieve us, grace to cleanse and power to free.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! We will early turn to Thee.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! We will early turn to Thee.

Early let us seek Thy favor, early let us do Thy will;
Blessèd Lord and only Savior, with Thy love our bosoms fill.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast loved us, love us still.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast loved us, love us still.
