Light in the Cloud

George Sexton


Excerpt from Light in the Cloud: Being Reasons for Renouncing Infidelity; Two Sermons, Preached in Augustine Church, Clapham Road, London, on Sunday, September 10th, 1876

It is hardly necessary to write a preface to the two Sermons which follow. They were preached at the time and place named on the title page, and the reader will have no difficulty in discovering the object had in view in their preparation and delivery. For some twenty years, or thereabouts, as is tolerably well known, I occupied a somewhat conspicuous position in the ranks of the so-called advanced thinkers. About fourteen years ago, I was led by a course of providential circumstances to reconsider the whole question of Christian Evidences, which I had for so long a time been accustomed to look upon as closed so far as I was concerned, and the result was the discovery of the utter fallacy of my sceptical views. Gradually I returned - as far as the broad principles of Christian Truth were concerned - to the faith of my early life, and finally to the position with which I commenced my public career, that of a minister of the Gospel of Christ.

As I was continually coming into contact with my former sceptical co-workers, I was repeatedly requested to state the reasons which had led to my change of views.
