Mediumship And The Bible

A third writer, Rev. H. E. Haweis, says in connection with the relation

of spiritualism with religion: "People now believe in the Bible because

of spiritualism; they do not believe in spiritualism because of the

Bible. Take up your Bible and you will find that there is not a single

phenomenon which is recorded there which does not occur at seances

today. Whether it be lights, sounds, the shaking of the house, the

through closed doors, the mighty rushing winds, levitation,

automatic writing, the speaking in tongues, we are acquainted with all

these phenomena; they occur every day in London as well as in the Acts

of the Apostles. It is incontestable that such things do occur, that in

the main the phenomena of spiritualism are reliable, and happen over and

over again, under test conditions, in the presence of witnesses; and

that similar phenomena are recorded in the Bible, which is written for

our learning. It is not an opinion, not a theory, but a fact. There is

chapter and verse for it, and this is what has rehabilitated the Bible.

The clergy ought to be very grateful to spiritualism for this, for they

could not have done it themselves. They tried, but they failed."
