Since the light of the gospel of Christ was obscured, we have had many reformers — Luther, Knox, Calvin, Wesley, and others. Each one contributed something to the cause of truth, but none succeeded in freeing themselves fully from the dogmas and superstitions of the dark ages. We cherish the name of every man who has contributed his part to the amelioration and elevation of the human race. We contemplate with admiration the men who have added one stone to the great temple of science. We view with astonishment the genius of an Alexan der, a Bonaparte, the Caesars, and other great chieftains who have crimsoned the world with blood, only to gratify their lust for power and ambition for fame. How much more, then, should we venerate and honor the man whose whole life has been dedicated and devoted to the good of man and the salvation of souls.
