Learn about Spiritism and the fallen angels in the light of the Old and New Testaments:
OF writing books on Spiritualism in these days there is no end. But with a single exception, and that rather inadequate in its treatment of the subject, we have found none to put into the hands of a Christian desirous of learning how to meet and deal with this error from an all round Biblical point of view. Some were too technical, some too bulky and expensive and some so mixed with other error as to be impossible to recommend. Not a few were written by those who were well informed on the scientific phases of Spiritualism, the findings of the Society of Psychical Research or the doings of mediums and seances, but whose authors appeared either ignorant of or indifferent to the Bible, which to the Christian, of course, holds the first place and is of final authority.
Some of the writers were of the novelist type like Sir A. Conan Doyle, Basil King or Booth Tarkington, and antagonistic to Christianity considering it a confirmed failure. These referred to the Bible to ridicule its teachings or to wrest their meaning into conformity with their own views, being convinced, as one of them said, that Spiritualism is “not only a new religion but the coming religion.”
We intended to briefly analyze some of these books for the sake of the warning they contain, but this has been so well done by the Sunday School Times in the case of Basil King’s “The Abolishing of Death” that we take the liberty to quote.
