FROM OUR EXCHANGES

[Rev. Charles Roper, B. A., in The Christian Life,. London, England.]

Let me tell you what I thing religion truly is. It is a felt dependence upon a higher power than one's own; a recognition that the power behind all and in all must be infinite; that it is not blind and unconscious, but works intelligently; that Love is the dominant Principle, and not hate, otherwise there would be hell established everywhere to-morrow, and devils stalking the earth to curse it instead of angels to bless it; that this power is the source of all that is, matrix, Father; that though the human finite mind cannot conceive of this perfectly, yet imagination and reason working in conjunction raise up ideals of love and truth and mercy and goodness which are approximately as attributes of that power which, for the want of better name, we call God. Immediately a whole scheme of duties opens out. As soon as a man pictures an ideal, dreams of good higher than his own, his duty is to strive to attain it. Hence you have man's constant search for God. [The Christian Register.]
