Henry Ward Beecher

Data de nascimento: 24. Junho 1813
Data de falecimento: 8. Março 1887

Henry Ward Beecher foi um pastor, editor e escritor estadunidense,talvez o mais influente porta-voz do protestantismo de seu tempo. Aos domingos, multidões de até 2.500 pessoas se reuniam na Igreja Congregacional de Plymouth, no Brooklin, em Nova York, para ouvir o poderoso orador falar não só sobre Deus, mas também sobre sua oposição à escravidão e seu apoio ao sufrágio feminino, à teoria evolucionista e ao livre comércio. Seu prestígio só cresceu em 1863 quando, em férias na Inglaterra, fez uma série de palestras sobre a Guerra Civil em Londres, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow e Edimburgo; essas apresentações tiveram extraordinário efeito sobre o público britânico, ganhando simpatia para a causa da União. Beecher era um homem emotivo e carismático - Sinclair Lewis escreveu sobre ele em 1927: "Ele era uma combinação de santo Agostinho, Barnum e John Barrymore." -, mas sua reputação foi manchada quando seu amigo Theodore Tilton o proscessou em 1874 sob acusação de ter cometido adultério com sua mulher. O sensacional julgamento Tilton terminou em 1875, sem que o júri chegasse a um veredicto. Apesar disso, o clérigo continuou sendo uma figura social eminente pelo resto de sua vida. Suas obras incluem Seven Lectures to Young Men , Eyes an Ears , The Life of Jesus, the Christ e Evolution an Religion .

„Christ, then, raised men from religion as a bondage to religion as a freedom.“

—  Henry Ward Beecher

The Nature Of Liberty (1873)
Contexto: "Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you." — John XV 15
This is unquestionably a contrast between an enforced and a free religious condition. It is a transfer from a life compelled by fear, through conscience, to a life that is inspired and made spontaneous by love. The strength of the phrase does not come out in that term servant. It is slave in the original. To be sure, the condition represented by the term slave was not at that time marked so sharply by the contrast of its misery with surrounding circumstances, as it is in our own day; nevertheless, it was a condition to be deprecated; and throughout the Scripture it is spoken of both as a misfortune and a disgrace. Our Savior looked upon his disciples as if they had, as Jews, and as worshipers after the manner of their fathers, been tied up in a kind of bondage. He was a member of the Jewish commonwealth, and was of the Jewish church; he had never separated himself from any of its ordinances or observances, but was walking as the fathers walked; and his disciples were bound not only to the Mosaic ritual, but to him as a kind of Rabbi; as a reform teacher, but nevertheless a teacher under the Jewish scheme. And so they were servants — slaves; they were rendering an enforced obedience. But he said to them, "Henceforth I shall not call you my servants — persons obeying me, as it were, from compulsion, from a sense of duty, from the stress of a rigorous conscience; I shall now call you friends." And he gives the reason why. A servant is one who receives orders, and is not admitted to conference. He does not know about his lord's affairs. His lord thinks first about his own affairs, and when he has consummated his plans, he gives his directions; so that all the servant has to do is to obey. But a friend sits in counsel with his friend, and bears a part in that friend's thinking and feeling, and in the determinations to which he comes; and Christ said to his disciples "Ycu come into partnership with me hereafter, and you stand at friends, on a kind of equality with me. There is to be liberty between you and me hereafter."
Christ, then, raised men from religion as a bondage to religion as a freedom. I do not like the word religion; but we have nothing else to take its place. It signifies, in the original, to bind, to tie. Men were bound. They were under obligations, and were tied up by them. Christianity is something more than religion— that is, religion interpreted in its etymological sense, and as it is popularly esteemed. Christianity is religion developed into its last form, and carries men from necessity to voluntariness — from bondage to emancipation. It is a condition of the highest and most normal mental state, and is ordinarily spontaneous and free. This is not an accidental phrase.

„The cynic is one who never sees a good quality in a man and never fails to see a bad one.“

—  Henry Ward Beecher

Lectures to Young Men: On Various Important Subjects (1856) Lecture IV : Portrait Gallery
Miscellany
Contexto: The cynic is one who never sees a good quality in a man and never fails to see a bad one. He is the human owl, vigilant in darkness and blind to light, mousing for vermin, and never seeing noble game. The cynic puts all human actions into two classes — openly bad and secretly bad.
