Learn about Origin of man – a treatise of angels, devils and men, and a compendium of war in Heaven :
The theory of our being, which War in Heaven presents, is so different from the opinion usually entertained by the Christian world of this age, that, although it is comparatively a small book, it has not had a sufficient reading to attract general attention to the theory therein submitted.
By this Compendium, it is designed to furnish a brief summary of the leading propositions contained in that work, with references to a few (and comparatively only a few) of the many Scriptural authorities on which the writer has founded his answer to the grave question, “ What is Man ?”
That is the question on which the whole science of theology hinges ! Without knowing what we are, or why we are here, we can never arrive at any satisfactory 07′ safe conclusion as to the true interpretation of the most important revelations as to God’s dealings with us, both here and hereafter. Whether the soul is created when the body is born, as held by the Catholic Church ; or propagated by and from the parents, with and as the body is, as Protestants generally suppose ; or whether the soul is the man, and was created, lived and sinned before this world was made, as the pious Jew and heathen philosopher alike believed, are questions which demand, and should receive, the most careful and serious consideration of all who expect to stand in judgment at the great day of retribution.
The sole purpose sought to be accomplished by the publication of this pamphlet, is to direct the attention of those who think for themselves, and love the truth, in a brief way, to that theory of our nature—origin and destiny — which the writer believes to be the correct one ; and which indicates the only battle ground on which Christianity, in this advanced age, can successfully meet the disciplined hosts of infidelity.
And this is done with a devout wish and humble hope that a careful reading of these few pages may and will,
awaken such desire, in the minds of many, to know more of themselves and of their associates in sin as will lead them to a far more thorough investigation of the mystical revelations which God has made to man, and which were, as it is manifest, intended to be more perfectly understood, after the ascension of Messiah, than was permitted before that period.
