This is the only true Spiritualism

We have Jesus for our Ideal. He said, I sanctify myself, so perfect was his consecration. After his death, when his disciples were assembled at the familiar meal, so fraught with tender associations, he appeared in their midst—simply to impress his teachings upon them and fill their hearts with peace; to breathe upon them his holy spirit and charge them to be faithful to the light they had received. Nor do you find them waiting in the dark for him to come again, but working, through trial and persecution, to advance the coming of his kingdom. This is the only true Spiritualism.
