Excerpt from The World as Intention: A Contribution to Teleology

Now half flood, it is now low water. Nor is this all. The doctrine of intention applies similarly to the phases of belief and religious imagination as they oscillate and waver from age to age. It disregards the superficies and plain outward actions of men, their hesitancy in knowing or assenting, but gauges and records their intention in acting, in knowledge, and in creed. It strips away the crust of scholastic minutiae, and turning from the imperfections of language re veals the intention of theology. It overlooks the in consistencies, the failures, the trivialities, the formal ism of the church, but estimates its intention and rests its Claims in that. It passes by the irregularities and travesties in the biblical record, whatever seems fabulous, and whatever can be proven impossible, and reviews and reveres it as the expression of an intention. It probes the world and finds in it the intention of God, and suggests the profitable speculation as to the times when it is clearest, the times when it is darkest, and the force of the agencies it opposes at all times. The doctrine of intention is an introduction to theology proper; it invites the inquirer to approach orthodoxy by an avenue less wearisome and more pleasingly adorned, because less cultivated, and brings him to a point of view free and enchanting, where the scene is none the less instructive because less labeled, less occupied by signposts, and less preempted by guides. It does not antagonize theology because it embraces it, and all beside, in a wide circle of encom passing conceptions. It regards the whole world, with.
