Excerpt from On Singleness of Eye: The Baccalaureate Sermon, Preached Before the College of New Jersey, June 22, 1873 The light, or rather the lamp, of the body is the eye. What a lamp does to 'a house that the eye does to the body - shows the objects within, and enables the indweller to move and act freely, as it is expressed (luke xi., As when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. We are commanded to have the eye single, as opposed to the eye that sees double, generally toa diseased, an evil eye. We may consider first the evil eye, and then the single eye, and in both regard it as looking to the two things spoken of in the text in John, to the doctrine we are to believe and the duty we are to perform.
