Transcript 32 WHY I LEFT THE CHURCH placed by a universal Materialism. In every country the number of brilliant, conscientious thinkers who have rejected traditional belief, largely through the influence of physical science, is well known and deeply significant. Clearly the spirituality of the soul has not been too generously revealed to those who would most have benefited by its consoling promise. CHRIST. There are many who now look to the figure of Christ for the restoration of that faith in the spiritual world which modern Scepticism seems determined to undermine. In the world at large we read only naturalism; the spirit-world is so completely veiled from our sight that we lose even our own spiritual identity. Humanity once saw on the outspread world a reflection of its Creator's attributes, dim and roubled as on the ruffled surface of a lake; even that has passed away, and it takes its life as part of the visible whole, unvisited by faintest gleam of a brighter world. But we are told that a revelation has been given more in proportion to our materialised ways of thinking; the figure of Christ, appearing as the central point of the world's history, is a striking embodiment of the higher power that encircles our life, intended to raise us from the naturahsm to which we are ever succumbing by a revelation of supernatural wisdom, goodness, and power.
