“There are but two Churches in the world, the Church of Christ, and the Church of Antichrist; however, they may be separated into divisions and sub-divisions: and if we are not of Christ, assured I am, that Antichrist is among us...The religion of today is formidable in appearance, like the spirit which Eliphaz saw, but it is not understood among the various societies of professing christians, and they are too much afraid to investigate the subject; and hence the maxim, that mysteries which we cannot comprehend we must believe, even things which we cannot understand. Is it possible, is it not contrary to every thing that we can have an idea of - is it not contrary to human reason, that a man must believe that which he cannot comprehend or understand? It is an absurdity; - it had its origin in the night season, when darkness covered the mind.”
Thomas Wetherald was a Quaker preacher, b 1791 in Broughhill, Aysgarth, Yorkshire, England who immigrated to the US in 1819. He lived and preached in York and in Chester Co, PA.
The first sermon is on the Holy Spirit, and the second is on the difference between the Church of Christ and the Church of Antichrist.
