Excerpt from Our Joe: Or Why We Believe Our Brother LivesIntroduction The author of this book has only recently come to a conviction of the Truth of Spiritualism.By profession I am a minister, and by denominational affiliation, a Congregationalist.I was baptized into the Baptist Church when I was twelve years of age. Three years later I had definitely entered the Christian ministry.For five years I labored as an "evangelist," and was known thru-out the South and West as the "Boy Preacher."I was ordained by a Baptist Presbytery, Nov. 17, 1912, when I lacked two days of being seventeen.During those five years in which I "did the work of an evangelist," I was rabidly and belligerently orthodox. My highest aim and aspiration was ultimately to become another "Billy" Sunday!A volume of my sermons was published in the early part of 1913. I had just closed a series of evangelistic meetings at Colorado Springs, Colo. That the reader may better understand my "soundness of doctrine," as I then held it, permit me to quote a few sentences therefrom:"Cain was the first Unitarian. He was the first to substitute his own righteousness for the shed blood. A Unitarian is not a Christian. Hell is full of these so - called 'liberals'. Spiritualism is of the devil, and so is Christian Science. If you follow these damnable cults, you will surely go to hell!"I was twenty years old when the crisis came.For five years I had preached the "Old-fashioned faith." I had held revival after revival, in which I plead with men and women to "escape from the wrath to come."It was my conviction at that time that the whole world was lost and ruined.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
