something wrong in our souls...
There is no safeguard of human virtue half so powerful as the thought that a being is present, nor does that thought lose its power when we are told that a being is present, and that being is God. Do we not fear him because we cannot see him with our eyes ? If the simple presence of a human being has power over us, and the presence of God has no power, there must be something wrong in our souls.
There is something wrong in our souls, — this want of spirituality is wrong, — it is wrong to let our minds be enslaved to visible things as to think more of every created thing than of the God who made it. There is no such thing as being religious while we are strangers to God.
