The Great Temperance Controversy free pdf Excerpt from The Great Temperance Controversy: Comprising Pearl Series of Lectures The deepest problem of the age is the civil, just, and equitable adjustment of the liquor traffic, in a way that the mighty stream of human woe springing from this source shall be diminished, and the destruction of human life occasioned by this business shall be prevented. Without undue confidence in my ability to grapple with a subject of such endless complications and great magnitude, I have set my hand to the work of preparing a series of brief lectures, sending them forth as a plea for the drunkard, and as a feeble influence in the work of reclaiming fallen men through the appetite and passion of strong drink. I have in these lectures viewed the liquor enterprise of America as a carnival of blight and ruin, tending to the ultimate overthrow and destruction of Christian civilization. Its work of desolation moves on at a speed that distances every moral means or influence, by or through which an attempt has been made to cope with the evil. The authentic statistics relating to the rapid increase in magnitude of the manufacture and sale of liquor, as well as to the harrowing moral and physical effects and results of intemperance, tend to dissipate every ray of hope for the success and perpetuity of moral culture and religious teaching. However calm and dispassionate men may reason upon this subject, it is certainly true, in the light of statistics, that the liquor demon has subtilely coiled itself in the way, bidding defiance to the progress and advance movement of the Christian enlightenment and moral attainments of the people of our country. Viewed in the light of the startling increase of intemperance and the wide range of its field, it is not a fancy or ill-advised belief, that this means will eventually destroy the morality, social happiness, and domestic peace of every home in America. Solemnly impressed with the awful truth of these statements, I have, "first and last," advanced legal Prohibition as the only present and future hope for the rescue and reclamation of a race fallen through the captivating power and influence of alcoholic drink.
