Excerpt from The City of the Living God: A Note on Hebrews XII. 22-24

Paradise and Earth; its dominion extends beyond the grave; its polity is the wonderful order in which God has ordained and constituted the services of angels and of men.

Now what was the Church of which he who wrote this Epistle spoke so great things? An invisible body, unorganised and without outward form, whose members are known only to God? A congeries of independent societies, each with an organisation separate from and often inconsistent with its fellows? A society, bearing an outward existence and a visible form, organised in obedience to some supreme law of God? And what were his ideas as to the power and lawful position of the Church, howsoever it was constituted? Our purpose is to examine his definition, clause by clause, and to find what light it throws on these far-reaching questions. For we suppose it can hardly be doubted either that the Apostolic writers had some sound knowledge as to what their Master meant by His Church, or that, if He had an intention and they have left it on record, our best wisdom is to follow Him and them, rather than to strike out a new Christian polity for ourselves, different from and perhaps even incon sistent with His design.

But if we desire to understand the idea that was in the mind of him who wrote the Epistle to the Hebrews, we must understand the general method of both his thoughts and the thoughts of those to whom he wrote. His own thoughts would give a general shape to his idea; theirs would necessitate his putting his idea into a form that they would readily understand.
