Excerpt from The Lord's Idea Concerning the Use of Money, Contrasted With the Devil's Idea Concerning the Use of Money

Permit me, my readers, to call your attention to a subject of the greatest importance both to yourselves and to universal humanity. For it is a matter of Divine record that the Maker of the Universe, while acting as spiritual lawgiver to the Jewish nation, gave them also five plain civil laws which constituted the mode of applying the fundamental principles of all forms of civil government. These laws had reference to the use of money, to the adjustment of all disputes between man and man, to creditor and debtor, to the mode of punishing the thief, and to the principle of exacting pledges. And, since all civilized nations use money, have thieves to punish, have disputes to settle, have creditors and debtors, and allow the principle of exacting pledges, these laws are therefore evidently applicable to all civilized nations. It is also equally obvious that the Divine Lawgiver designed these laws for the use and benefit of other nations as much as for the Jewish nation, since He sustains the identical relation to all other nations as to the Jewish nation, being alike the Common Father of all nations Jewish, Gentile and Christian, while they are alike his children and men, and are therefore identically affected by the operation of these laws. Hence, any civilized nation that adopted these divine civil laws would have an absolutely perfect mode of applying the fundamental principles of its civil government, because a divine law concerning civil things, is as perfect as a divine law concerning spiritual things. Rut it is a fact, and a most deplorable fact, that all civilized nations, especially the Christian nations, have without a single exception, adopted and placed upon their statute books five civil laws directly opposed to these five divine civil laws; and this act, without a parallel in the history of human infatuation and folly, these Christian nations perpetrated, while acknowledging, in common with the Jewish people, the author of these laws as their Maker the great God of the Universe. Nor does this statement include the whole of this sad history. For our minds are so constituted that we must think either what is good and true, or think what is evil and false. But the good and true come from Heaven or God, while the evil and the false come from Hell or the Devil, and they are in direct opposition.
