about

From the introduction:
Spiritualism has been spoken of as “Infidelity with a Ghost in it.” An eminent preacher said many years ago, “if the people did not receive the Holy Ghost they would go after other Ghosts.” Spiritualism fits into that designation exactly.

Rev. F. Swainson, lecturing on Spiritualism in England, designated this deadly fallacy under three black I’s: Infidelity, Insanity, and Immorality.

Touching Spiritualism, Talmage said: “First it makes a man a quarter of an infidel, then it makes him half an infidel; then it makes him a whole infidel.”

As to Insanity. Professor Harris said: “The most remarkable case of medium life I have met with was that of a lady who commenced with a little seemingly innocent table-turning at a children’s party and finished up by death in a mad house.”

Regarding Immorality. Some of their Apostles testify that the marriage vow imposes no obligation on the spiritualistic husband.

A writer on “Spiritualism and Christianity” says that “Spiritualism grips the mind of dabblers with an extraordinary fascination and seems to demand a self surrender as great as that which Christianity itself involves, a surrender of the whole personality.”

Modern Spiritualism originated at Hydesvine, Wayne County, New York, March 31, 1848, and had an immense growth since the world war [World War One], this is due no doubt to two factors. One, the war itself brought on grief, loneliness, despair and thousands, yes, tens of thousands, ran into Spiritualism because of its alluring claims of communication with the dead. The other factor was the favoring attitude of Sir Conan Doyle an eminent literary man, and Sir Oliver Lodge a great scientist, toward Spiritualism. Both of these great men gave this dangerous delusion a boost such as it never received before and they drew many thousands into the Spiritualistic net.
