Signs of the Times
[San Jose (Calif.) Mercury-Herald]
By this time Christians should have learned that the world is not to be saved—transformed into disciples of Christ—by words. It can only be done by men and women breathing, living, acting, the very spirit of Christ. Perpetual peace, industrial and every other kind, can only be made in the world by living epistles of his spiritual truth, power, and love.
But Christianity is something more even than the highest code of ethics ever given to the earth. It can only be perfectly defined by transformed, spiritualized human lives, by men and women who have given up the old law, "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth," for the new law which he gave unto us, to do good for evil. No matter how many definitions of Christianity are formulated in words, the great mass of mankind will never much understand them until their meaning is made plain by real flesh and blood men and women who have overcome the world—who have been "born again," as he says we must be. Neither will this great mass of humanity be turned from the path of sin in which most of them are walking, until some regenerated man or woman throws the mantle of charity over their frailties and loves them in spite of their faults; until some real disciple of Christ, blessed with God's own spiritual power, instead of harshly threatening them with hell fire, gently takes them by the hand and gives them the desire, the courage, and the strength to walk in the upward way.
