“As cause and effect are in likeness of nature one and inseperable, it follows that man’s life, however affected by things seemingly adverse to it, as negatives resist and chafe against their positives, can never lose its positive sense of conscious existence as posited in likeness of nature with God: hence ‘the everlasting redeemableness’ of the human soul. The life of God in it is the pledge of its redemption.
It is false in fact to say that the thing’s in man’s nature and conditions that antagonize his spiritual manhood can be held as cause of final and eternal separation from God, for the divinity of his manhood admitted to co-exist with the human is there; and, where God is in such high sense of self-evident purpose of wisdom and goodness, there can be no rational ground in reason or Scripture for the common and repulsive idea of final separation from God.”
–Rev. William C. Brooks
