Book Description Forgotten Books, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Nation s Ballot and Its Decision: A Discourse Delivered in Austin-Street Church, Cambridgeport, and in Harvard Church, Charlestown, on Sunday, Nov, 13, 1864; Being the Sunday Following the Presidential Election There is a striking contrast between two scenes presented to us in Gospel history, in the record of both of which we read of the casting-of-lots. There is all possible difference between the two applications or meanings of that same phrase in the two incidents. In the one case, an issue was staked on what is called blind chance; in the other, on a deliberately solemn expression of a devoutly guided will in forming a judgment. The Roman soldiers, the mechanical officials at the Saviour s cross, when that tragedy was over, cast lots for his garment. The eleven apostles, purposing to fill one vacancy in their former fellowship, to preserve the national, traditional sanctity and associations with the number twelve, gave forth their lots. In both cases, so far as was visible to the eye, the method of decision was the same. The word lot is suggestive to us of an appeal to chance. To cast a lot, to throw, to toss, to stake a venture on the die, are all tokens that men commit to the decision of hap what they will not dispose by intelligence or choice, or the decision of the higher Will. Any tool or implement or test will serve for that use. But when, instead of the word lot, we use the word ballot, we begin to discern a difference; and the difference mounts and strengthens, till all thought of an appeal to chance leaves our minds, the more we interpose of human preference, purpose, or will.
