From Our Exchanges

[Rev. W. E. Orchard, D.D., in The Christian Commonwealth]

Our great social hopes turn to religion for confirmation. The social consciousness which is so characteristic of our age has been formed by supernatural inspiration. The great dreams which disturb our people—of emancipation from wage-slavery, suffering, and pain—are obviously due neither to economic pressure nor to the compulsion of conditions. They are as utterly unlike anything that we have ever seen or have the right to expect as the Messianic predictions of the Hebrew prophets or the millennial hopes of the early Christian. If there is not divine inspiration behind them, they can never face the facts of existence; and to recognize their origin is to recognize the only hope of their realization.
