From Our Exchanges

[American Lutheran Survey]

The real significance of the war is its spiritual significance; all else matters very little. One great spiritual result will be that men will not speak so confidently of the glory of human nature and the wisdom of human philosophy, unhallowed and undirected by God's revealed word. The materialist who sees nothing but matter has long since been discredited and is now finally disposed of. The secularist and the Epicurean have been proven false prophets. The idealist of the Bergson type is shown to be only a harmless parlor philosopher. Men need something more secure than these false props, which fail to hold up the great structure builded by the nations and called civilization and culture. The structure itself was rotten, as were the props that held it up. Everything has fallen in the general crash. The brazen reassertion of the discredited theories and philosophies is like a peep in the roar of destruction. The world is getting down to realities, and by realities we mean spiritual realities; for they are the only real things.
