In the evening we went to hear a Methodist preacher Lecture. After he got through Pres. J. offered some corrections as follows. The 7th verse of c 2 of Genesis ought to read God breathed into Adam the br his spirit or breath of life, but when the word “ruach” applies to Eve it should be translated lives.
Speaking of eternal duration of matter he said. There is no such thing as immaterial matter. All spirit is matter but is more fine or pure and can only be discerned by purer eyes We cant see it but when our bodies are purified we shall see that it is all matter. [p. [18]]
