Signs of the Times

[From a declaration by the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America]

Fortunately the church itself has undergone, within the last decade and especially during the war, an enlargement of scope which amounts to a transformation. The churches to-day recognize, as they did not a generation ago, that the kingdom of God is as comprehensive as human life with all of its interests and needs, and that they share in a common responsibility for a Christian world order. They are convinced that ... the ethical principles of the gospels are to be applied to industry and to the relations of nations; that the church is to devote itself henceforth to these purposes, along with the individual ministries of religion.
