Preface

Contents

PART I.

I. Can the Departed be objectively present? If so, in what way can they manifest themselves to us as to be recognizable?

II. Is the fact that trickery and imposture have been associated with Spiritualism, a proof that it is the outcome of falsehood and credulity?

III. Does the prohibition against intercourse with "familiar spirits," as given to the ancient Israelites, imply that all communion with the Spirit-world is forbidden by God?

IV. How can it be explained that many of the communications alleged to come from discarnate beings are unsatisfactory, misleading and untruthful?

V. Is there a danger in attending séances, on the ground that at such meetings evil and deceiving spirits may be attracted?

VI. Will our earthly relationships be maintained in the Other World?

VII. Why do not all the Departed manifest themselves to those whom they have left behind?

VIII. Will the fact that beings in Spirit-life are on different planes of life and experience be an obstacle to re-union?

IX. Apart from direct communications from them, how may we best realize that the Departed are still living and in relationship with us?

X. Are not such expressions as—"The sea gave up the dead, which were in it," "Them which sleep," and "Those that are in the graves"— an indication that the New Testament writers regarded Death as a temporary cessation of conscious being?

PART II.

I. Objections against "The Larger Hope" considered.

"The book—'Our Life after Death' teaches Universalism. It leaves out the strong things Jesus Christ said. What is called 'the strong language of the Athanasian Creed' is our Lord's own teaching."

(From report in "Church Times" of March 9th, 1906, of the Bishop of London's statement. See note at end of chapter.)

II. "The Times of the Restitution of all things."

III. "As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."

IV. "The Saviour of all men."

V. "Our God is a consuming Fire."

VI. What Greek word denoting "never-ending" could the writers of the New Testament have used, if the word aionios (aionios, translated "everlasting" and "eternal") will not sustain that signification?

VII. Is there a danger, in regard to the Universalist belief, of making the Benevolence of God dominate His Holiness and Justice in such a way as to constitute Him the Tolerator of evil?

VIII. Is it right to pray for those who have departed this life as non-Christians? If so, what should be the character of our prayers for them?

IX. If Christians depart this life to be with Christ, how can our prayers benefit them? Does He not know exactly what to do for them without our intercessions on their behalf?

X. On what grounds can we base our belief that Jesus is not only pre-eminently a Son of God, but the Son of God, in the sense of being Divine?

"Man and the Spiritual World" - 1903 Edition
By The Reverend Arthur Chambers


man and the spiritual world

Preface

Contents



PART I

An Important Question.—WHAT WILL BECOME OF US WHEN WE DIE?

The Question answered in different ways

I. ANSWERS THAT ARE WHOLLY INCORRECT
(a) That of the Materialist

(b) That of the Agnostic

(c) That of the Christian-Materialist
II. ANSWERS THAT FALL SHORT OF THE TRUTH
(a) The general one given by the religions of the world

(b) That of Christians who deny an Intermediate Life

(c) That of those who acknowledge an Intermediate Life, but have no definite idea of it
The Source to which We may look for a True Answer to the Question

How we are to deal with the testimony of the Bible

PART II

What is Man? -The Bible's Testimony

I. MAN IS MORE THAN A PHYSICAL BEING

II. MAN, AFTER DEATH, IS IN BODILY FORM

III. MAN, WHILE IN THE EARTH LIFE, POSSESSES CERTAIN FACULTIES—CLAIRVOYANCE AND CLAIRAUDIENCE—THAT POINT TO AN INTERIOR SPIRITUAL ORGANISATION

What may be deduced from these three Propositions

The Bible's pronouncement concerning Man's constitution confirmed by a very general experience of mankind
(a) As to Appearances after death

(b) As to the facts of Clairvoyance and Clairaudience
PART III

The Spiritual World.—The Bible's Testimony

WHERE IS THAT WORLD?

THE IDEAS OF WESTERN, EASTERN, AND POST-APOSTOLIC CHRISTIANS

THE PRESENT-DAY IDEA

The Spiritual World is everywhere and interpenetrates the Physical

TWO REASONS WHY THE SPIRITUAL MUST INTERPENETRATE THE PHYSICAL

THE BIBLE'S STATEMENTS ON THIS POINT
(a) Spiritual beings have been seen

(b) Spiritual manifestations have been seen

(c) Spiritual voices have been heard
(1) Of visible Angels
(2) Of other visible spiritual beings
(3) Of invisible spiritual beings
(d) Spiritual beings have controlled the bodies and minds of men

(e) The greater number of spiritual manifestations recorded in Scripture took place amid the ordinary surroundings of earthly life
Some of the characteristics of the Spiritual World

I. IT IS A WORLD OF WIDELY DIFFERING LIFE AND EXPERIENCE

TWO CONSIDERATIONS THAT POINT TO THIS CONCLUSION:—
(a) The impossibility of imagining that persons, on leaving this life, can be rigidly divided into only two classes of good and bad
(b) The difficulty of supposing, in the face of the intellectual, moral and spiritual dissimilarity that exists, a uniform experience Beyond, The Testimony of the Bible on this point
THE TESTIMONY OF THE BIBLE ON THIS POINT

II. IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD THE EXPERIENCES OF BOTH BELIEVER AND UNBELIEVER ARE COMPLEXIONED BY, AND CORRESPOND TO, THE CHARACTER FORMED IN EARTH LIFE

POPULAR THEOLOGY PRACTICALLY NEGATIVES THIS TRUTH, AND SO MINIMISES THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CULTIVATION OF CHARACTER

THE TESTIMONY OF THE BIBLE ON THIS POINT

III. THE SPIRITUAL WORLD IS AN EDUCATIONAL ONE

POPULAR THEOLOGY HAS DENIED THIS, AND CONSEQUENTLY HAS VIEWED MAN, IN THE INTERMEDIATE LIFE, AS BEING EITHER IN A HOPELESS OR A STAGNANT CONDITION

THE TESTIMONY OF THE BIBLE ON THIS POINT

IV. IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD THERE IS A PRESENCE OF CHRIST

THE IMPORT OF THIS TRUTH

THE TESTIMONY OF THE BIBLE ON THIS POINT


CONCLUSION
