Excerpt from A Sermon: Preached at His Morning Service, Sunday, December 16, 1900, in the Presbyterian Church at Webster Groves, Mo
Gen. 2: 16, 17, "And the Lord God commanded the man, saying: Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it, for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."
Gen. 3: 4, "And the serpent said unto the woman, Thou shalt not surely die."
This discourse on "The Bible in the Light of Modern Thought," is, as you are aware, the result of an address on the same subject, by Rabbi Leon Harrison, at the recent meeting of our Tuesday Evening Club.
Seldom, does a speaker so charm an audience as did he, and seldom does an audience evince so much of delight. We were all fascinated with the brilliancy of his rhetoric, the chasteness of his imagery, the felicity of his phrasings. The glowing portraiture, at the outset of his discourse, of the race which he in his own person represented, and the panegyric upon the Bible, i. e., the Jewish Scriptures, with which he ended, were marvels of beautiful thought and diction. Indeed, under the bewitching spell of his eloquence - if that were all - we could almost have wished we were Jews too!
But that was not all. The courtesies of the occasion - the good Rabbi being the guest of the Club - prevented the saying, by those who were called out afterward, of much that otherwise might very properly have been said. Between the two parts of the address to which I have referred, when speaking of what Modern Thought, called the Higher Criticism, has done for or to the Bible, there was not a little, the rank poison of which could not be disguised to persons of discriminating taste, notwithstanding the delectable rhetorical sugar-coating with which it was served. My loyalty to the Old Book, which I believe to be the Word of God, and not a merely human production seamed and marred with falsehood at that, as well as my obligation to those who were present that come under my ministration, will not allow me to let that teaching pass unchallenged.
"Modern thought" is now a phrase to conjure with. There are many who seem to think that what is new must be true, and what is old is obsolete and should therefore be discarded.
