Heresy of a Professional One Man Ministry

Was this writer competent to address such a subject? Yes, he graduated from Dartmouth College in 1818 and then studied theology at Princeton Theological Seminary where he was a tutor 1823–1824. He was ordained in the Presbyterian ministry, spent four years as a Christian missionary in Indiana and in 1831 became professor of Hebrew and Oriental Literature at New York University.

These were the days when preachers actually earned their degrees. He even wrote a Hebrew Grammar and many Commentaries, too. 

Desiring to avoid the blow-back of such an adventurous book, he used a clever pseudonym. His real name is George Bush. He is a relative of 2 US presidents.

    • I will actually enjoy logging in and downloading!  Wonder if the presidential persons read their ancestors work?

      • Hi there Stephen, wherever you may be. 

        I also wondered the same. If either President had read this book - this book written by the distingusihed person they were likely named after.  If so, they would have certainly found a weapon of mass destruction against modern priestcraft.  Be it of the Catholic or Protestant version. Not to mention all the other world religions which require a clerical intermediary between themselves and the Almighty.

        Looking from the reverse point of view, I wonder how the senior George Bush would feel if he was aware that one of his descendants was responsible, in part, for the death of a million Iraqi citizens? Not to mention our own casualties, life-time mental and physical disabilities, and a massive trillion dollars needlessly spent and yet still unpaid for.

        Countries like Iraq, by the way, are a good example of a culture where traditional Protestant churches will not work. The persecutions of Christians there is cruel and unrelenting. 

        Let us be a blessing to others in this short life. So that when we come to die our minds will not be filled with regret, guilt, and haunting memories of hurting others. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

        • An inquiry came in via email about the author of this ground-breaking volume.

          Not to stir the pot too much, the author used a "pen-name". He was a university professor in New York and perhaps did not want to bring the school into this controversy. Pen-names were not unusual back then, I gather.

          One additional note about the author regarding his other productions from an old magazine:
