rev. T. DeWitt Talmage delivered
the following sermon in the Brooklyn
tabernacle, taking for his text:
Lord. increase our faith.-Luke xvli., 5.
"What a pity he is going there," said
my friend, a most distinguished gen
eral of the army, when he was told
that the reason for my not being pres
ent on a certain celebrated day in
Brooklyn was that on that day I had
sailed for the Holy Land. "Whny do
you say that?" inquired some one. My
military friend replied: "Oh, he will
be disillusioned when he gets amid the
squalor and commonplace scenes of
Palestine, and his faith will be shaken
in Christianity." The great gederal
misjudged the case. I went to the Holy
Land for the one purpose of having my
faith strengthened, and that was the re
sult which came of it. In all our jour
neyings, in all our readings, in all our
associations, in all our plans, augmen
tation,rather than the depletion of our
faith, should be our chief desire. It is
easy enough to have our faith de
stroyed. I can give you a recipe for
its obliteration. Read infidel books,
have long and frequent conversations
with skeptics, attend the lectures of
those antagonistic to religion, give
full swing to some bad habit, and your
faith will be so completely gone that
you will lagh at the idea that you
ever had any. If you want to ruin
your faith, you can do it more easily
than you can do anything else. After
believing the Bible all my life, I can
see a plain way by which, in six weeks,
I could enlist my voice and pen and
heart and head and entire nature in
the bombardment of the Scriptures
and the church and all I now hold
scacred. That it is easy to banish
soon and forever all respect for
the Bible, I prove by the fact
that so many have done it. They
were not particularly brainy, nor had
especial force of will. but they sothor
oughly accomplished the overthrow of
their faith that they have no more idea,
that the Bible is true, or that Christi
anity amounts to anything, than they
have in the truth of the "Arabian
Nights' Entertainments," or the exist
ence of Don Quixote's "windmills."
They have destroyed their faith so
thoroughly that they never will have
a return of it. Fifty revivals of reli
gion may sweep over the city, the town,
the neighborhood where they live, and
they will feel nothing but a silent or
expressed disgust. There are persons
in this house to-day who twenty years
ago gave up their faith and they will
never resume it. The black and deep
toned bell of doom hangs over their
head, and I take the hammer of that
bell, and I strike it three times with
all my might. and it sounds, Woe!
Woe! Woe! But my wish, and the
wish of most of you, is the prayer ex
pressed by the disciples of Jesus Christ,
in the words of my text: "Lord, in
crease our faith."
The first mode of accomplishing this
is to study the Bible itself. I do not
believe there is an infidel now alive
who has read the Bible through. But
as so important a document needs to be
read at least twice through in order
that it may be thoroughly understood,
and read in course, I now offer one
hundred dollars reward to any infidel
who has read the Bible through twice
and read it in course. But I can not
take such a man's word for it, for there
is ho foundation for integrity, except
the Bible, and the man who rejects the
source of truth, how can I accept his
truthfulness? So I must have another
witness in the case before I give the
reward. I must have the testimony of
some one who has seen him read it all
through twice. Infidels fish in this
Bible for incoherences and contradic
tions and absurdities, and if yon find
their Bible, you will see interlineations
in the Book of Jonah an some of the
chapters of that unfortunate prophet
nearly worn out by much use, and
some parts of Second Samuel or First
Kings you will find him with finger
marks, but the pages which contain
the ten commandments and the psalms
of David and the Sermon on the Mount
and the Book of John, the Evangelist,
will not have a single'lead-pencil
stroke in the margin, nor any finger
marks showing frequent perusal. The
father of one of the presidents of the 1
United States was a pronounced in
idel. I knew it when many years ago 1
I accepted his invitation to spend the I
night in his home. Just before retir- 1
Ing at night he said, in a jocose way: i
"I suppose you are accuastomed to read I
the Bible before going to bed, and here 1
is my Bible from which to read." He
then told me what portions he would I
like to have me read, and he only
asked for those portions on which he 1
could easily be facetious. t
You know you can make fun abput
any thing. I suppose you could taket
the last letter your father or mother j
ever wrote and find sometbing in the i
grammar, or the spelling, or the I
tremor of the penmanship about which
to be derisively critidal. The internal d
evidence of the truthfulness of the r
Bible is so mighty that no one man a
out of the billion six hundred millions I
of the world's present population, or a
the vaster millions of the past, ever a
read the Bible in course, and read it 1
prayerfully and carefully, but was led f
to believe it. John Murray, the fa- t
mous book publisher of Edinburgh. I
and the intimate friend of Southey, I
Coleridge, Walter Scott, Canning and J
WVashington Irving, bought of Moore, 4
the poet, the "Memoirsof Lord Byron," t
and they were to be published after a
Hyron's death. But they were not fit
to be published, although Murray had h
paid for them tep thousand dollars. t
That was a solemn conclave when c
eight of the prominenetiterary people of a
those times assembled in Albemarle a
street after Byron's death to decide a
what should be done with the "Me- p
moirs" which were charged and sur- u
"harged with defanmations and ,iadeli- I
acee. The "Memoirs" were eed and ti
pondered, and the decision came that I
h-ey must be burned, and not until the n
rst word of "Memoirs" went to ashes fi
lid the literary company separate. i
But, suppose now, all the best spirits I
f all ages were assembled to decide ti
;he fate of the Bible, which is the last tI
will and testament of oaur Beavealy C
ather, and these Memoirs of our Lead y
ems, what would be their radiet? p
thall they burn or shall they live? o
!he unanimous verdict of all is: "Let 1
tlive, thregbg ll else bur" Thea d
at togdher a the other aIa ti
aJ the debsuehes and paroa
gate and assass of the ages and
their unanimous verdict concerning
the Bible would ber "Let it burn."
Mind you, I do not say that all infdels
are immoral, but I do say that all the
seapegraces and scoundrels of the uni
verse agree with Yem about the Bible.
Let me vote withThose who believe in
the Holy Scriptures. Men believe
other things with half the evidence
required to believe in the Bible. The
distinguished Abner Kneeland rejected
the Scriptures, and then put all his
money into an enterprise for that
Hocus-pocus "Captain Kid's Treas
ures," Kneelan's faith for doing so
being founded on a man's statement
that he could tell where those
treasures were buried from the
looks of a glass of water dip
ped from the Hudson river. The in
ternal evidence of the authenticity of
the Scriptures is so exact and so vivid
that no man, honest and sane, can
thoroughly and continuously and
prayerfully read them without enter
ing their discipleship. So I put that
internal evidence paramount. How
are you led to believe in a letter you
receive from husband or wife or child
or friend? You know the handwrit
ing. You know the style. You recog
nize the sentiment. When the letter
comes you do not summon the postmas
ter who stamped it and the postmaster
who received it and the letter-carrier
who brought it to your door to prove
that it is agenuine letter. The inter
nal evidence settles it, and by the same
process you can forever settle the fact
that the Bible is the handwriting and
communication of the infinite God.
Furthermore, as I have already inti
mated, we may increase our faith by
the testimony of others. Perhaps we
of lesser brain may have been over
come by superstition or cajoled into an
acceptance of a hollow pretension. So
I will this morning, turn this house
into a courtroom and summon wit
nesses, and you shall be the jury, and
now I empanel you for that purpose,
and I will put upon the witness stand
men who all the world acknowledge to
be strong intellectually and whose evi
dence in any other courtroom would
be incontrovertible. I will not call
to the witness stand any min
ister of the Gospel, for he
might be prejudiced. There are
two ways of taking an oath in a court
room. One is by putting the lips to the
Bible, and the other is by holding up
the right hand toward Heaven. Now,
as in this case. it is the Bible that is on
trial, we will not ask the witness to
put the book to his lips, for that would
imply that the sancity and divinity of
the book is settled, and that would be
begging the question. So I shall ask
each witness to lift his hand toward
Heaven in affirmation. Salmon P.
Chase, chief-justice of the supreme
court of the United States, appointed
by President Lincoln, will take the
witness stand. "Chief-Justice Chase,
upon your oath, please tostate what you
have to say about the book commonly
called the Bible." The witness replies:
"There came a time in my life when I
doubted the divinity of the Scriptures,
and I resolved, as a lawyer and judge,
I would try the book as I would try
anything in the court rogm, taking evi
dence for and against It was a long
and serious and profound study, and
using the same principles of evidence
in this religious matter as I always do
in secular matters, I have come to the
decision that the Bible is a supernat
ural book; that it has come from God,
and that the only safety for the human
race is to follow its teachings." "Judge,
that will do. Go back to your pillow
ofdnston the banks of the Ohio." Next
I put upon the witness stand a presi
dent of the United States-John
Quincy Adams. "President Adams,
what have you to say about the
Bible and Christianity." The presi
dent replies: "I have for many years
made it a practice to read through the
Bible once a year. My custom is to
read four or five chapters every
morning immediately after arising
from my bed. It employs about an i
hour of my time, and seems to me the
most suitable manner of beginning the 1
day. In what light soever we regard
the Bible, whether with reference to
revelation, to history or to morality, it I
is an invaluable and inexhaustible
mine of knowledge and virtue." Next I
I puat upon the witness stand ~Ir Isaac 1
Newton, the author of the Principia I
and the greatest natural philosopher
the world has ever seen. "Sir Isaac, 1
what have you to say concerning the
Bible?" The philosopher's reply is: I
"We account the Scriptures of God to
be the most sublime philosophy." a
Next I put upon the witness stand
the enchantment of letters, Sir Walter
Bcott, and when I ask him what he
thinks of the place that our Great
Book ought to take among other books '
he replies: "There is but one book and
that is the Bible." Next I put upon the '
stand the most famous geologist of all I
Lime, Hugh Miller, an elder of Dr.
Guthrie's Presbyterian church, in Edin- 1
btrgh, and Faraday, and Kepler, and c
they all testify to the same thing.
They all say the Bible is from God and
that the mightiest influence for
rood that ever touched our wor!d
is Christianity. "Chancellor Kent!
What do you think of the Bible?" "
Answer: "No other book ever ad
tresed itself so authoritatively and so
iathetically to the judgment and moral 0
uense of mankind." "Edmund Burke! C
bhat do yon think of the Bible?"' An
awer: "I have read the Bible morning, u
ioon and night, and have ever since
een the happier nhad the better man "
'or such reading." Next I put upon
;he stand William E. Gladstone, the
lead of the English government, and I
lear him saying what he said to me in
Fanulary of 1890, when, in reply to his
elegram: "Pray come to Hawarden
n-morrow." I visited him. Thena

anity as the only hope of our ruined
vorld. "That is all, Mr. Gladstone, P
ve will take of your time now, for, G

- England just now I think you are
ery busy." The next man I put upon is
he wftM ssss is the late earl of Kin- si
are, and I ask him what he thinks of B
-ristianity, and .he replies: "Why do a
w ask me that? Did you hear me I

I yoa pass along just give one senteno
in regard to Christianity. "Under Go
it has changed my entire nature," sasi
i one. "It brought jae from drunken
nes and poverty to sobriety and i
good home," says another. "It aol
eaced me when I lost my child," says
another. "It gave me a hope of fa
ture treasures when my property wai
swept off by the last panic," says
another. "It has given me a peac:
and a satisfaction more to me than al
the world beside," says another. "II
has been to me light, and music, ani
fragran'e, and radiant anticipation,'
says another. Ah! stop the processior
of witnesses. Enough! Enough! All
those voices of the past and the preseni
have mightily increased our faith.
But I come to the height of my sub
ject when I say the way to re-inforc
our faith is to pray for it. So the di
ciples in my text got their abounding
faith: "Lord increase our faith."
Some one suggests: "Do you really
think that gayer amounts to any.
thing?" I might as well ask you L
there a line of telegraphic poles from
New York to Washington, is there
a line of telegraphic wires from
Manchester to London, from Co
logne to Berlin. As those pea
ple who have sent and received
messages on those lines know of their
existence, so there are millions of
souls who have been in constant com
munications with the capital of the uni
verse,with the throne of the Almighty,
with the great God Himself, for year
and years and years. There has not
been a day when supplications did not
flash up and blessings did not flash
down. Will some ignoramous, who has
never received a telegram or sent one,
come and tell us that there is no such
thing as telegraphic communication?
Will someone who has never offered a
prayer that was heard and answered
come and tell us that that there is
nothing in prayer? It may not come as
we expect it, but as sure as an honest
prayer goes up a merciful answer will
come down. During the blizzard of
four or five years ago, you know that
many of the telegraph wires were pros
trated, and I telegraphed to Chicago by
the way of Liverpool, England, and
the answer, after awhile, came round
by another wide circuit, and so the
prayer we offer may come back in a
way we never imagined, and if we ask
to have our faith increased, although
it may come by a widely different proc
ess than that which we expected, our
confidence will surely be augmented.
Oh, put it in every prayer you ever
make between your next breath and
your last gasp: "Lord, increase our
faith"-faith in Christ as our personal
ransom from present guilt and eter
nal catastrophe. Faith in the om
nipotent Holy Ghost. Faith in
the Bible, the truest volume never
dictated or written or printed or read.
What a frightful time we had a few
days ago down on the coast of Long
Island, where I have been stopping.
That archangel of tempest, which,
with its awful wings, swept the At
lantic coast from Florida to Newfound
land, did not spare our region. A few
miles away. at Southampton, I saw the
bodies of four men, whom the storm
had slain and the sea had cast up. As
I stood there among the dead bodies,
I said to myself, and I said aloud:
"These men represent homes. What
will mother and father and wife and
children say when they know this?"
Some of the victims were unknown,
only the first name of two of them was
found out-Charley and William. I
wondered then and I wonder now if
they will remain unknown, and if
some kindred far away may be waiting
for their coming and never hear of the
rough way of their going. I saw also
one of the three who had come in alive,
but more dead than alive. The ship
had become helpless Lix miles out,
and as one wave swept the deck
and went down on the furnaces till
they hissed and went out, the cry was,
"Oh, my God, we are lost!" Then the
crew put on life-presevers, one of the
sailors saying to the other: "We will
meet again on the other shore, and, it
not, Well, we must all go somethnime."
Of the twenty-three men who put on
the life-presevers only three lived to
reach the beach. But what a scene
it was as the good and kind
people of Southampton, led on
by Dr. Thomas, the great and
good surgeon of New York, stood
watching the sailors struggling in the
breakers. "Are you still alive?" shout
ed Dr. Thomas to one of them out in
the breakers, and he signaled yes, and
then went into unconsciousness. Who
hould dd the most for the poor fellows
and how to resuscitate them were
the questions that ran up and down
the beach at Southampton. How the
men and women on the shore stood
wringing their hands impatiently wait
ng for the sufferers to come within
reach, and then they were lifted up and
carried indoors and waited on with as
much kindness and wrapped as warm
y as though they had been the princes
of the earth. "Are they alive?"
'Are they bresthing'?" "Do you think
they will live?" "What can we do for
them?" were the rapid and intense
juestions asked, and so much money
was sent for the clothing and equip
