Whose side was God on in the Civil War? Was God on the side of the North giving them the victory and freeing the slaves? Was God on the side of the South standing with them as with the Israelites in Babylon? Is this even the right question to ask? Chaplain Farley tackels a question often asked at battlefields across the land.
"For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works."
