Hail, 50 followers. Having printed examples of the butchery of the English language yesterday, here’s an example from a Reverend Gleason asking for a “generous tide”of benevolence after a flood in Skinnerville, Massachusetts, 1874. “Let it rise to Skinnersville, and there... find something higher. As the tall corn ships entering the harbor of ancient Rhodes sailed beneath the colossal statue that bestrode the harbor, so must this benevolence flow through the desolated field discovered by the large heart of William Skinner. If but a moiety of the wealth which has for many years flowed through the channels of piety to our churches, colleges, and schools, should return, like ‘bread cast upon the waters,’ to the generous givers, the valley would again be made glad, and the prayer go up from every home, ‘God bless the donors!’” For hundreds of years, Christians believed that natural disasters were punishments to sinners from an angry God. Then the Great Awakening said that our Father is merciful and wants only the best for his children, but man is still solely responsible for natural calamities because of his ignorance or neglect. From God to Man to whom today? Government? Without eloquent language to enunciate it who now responsible for disasters? Without God and without personal responsibility in Men, who (or what) rules the roost?
