From Our Exchanges

[The Christian Register]

Religion offers those values which redeem mediocrity and humble pride. It stands alone in approaching human nature through those feelings to which the greatest number of men can respond, and in offering verities within the reach of the ignorant and not to be purchased by any sort of wealth not exchangeable for righteousness. It thanks the Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that He has hid these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them unto babes. What is didactic, what is prudent, what is expedient, what is true and good and beautiful, religion takes each at its value; but it takes them where neither can go of itself, into the inner places of the spirit, so that none are so poor as to be shut out of their blessing, none so mean as not to feel reverence for them. It is written that He fashioneth their hearts alike; and religion is the true seed of democracy, because it brings that which dignifies the common heart of man and reveals that in which alone all men become one.
