Signs of the Times

[Craig S. Thoms, Ph. D., in The Biblical World]

Thousands of our soldier boys lie buried on the hills of France, having freely and proudly given their lives to render a service to humanity. In the world war the very soul of our nation was enlarged by our consciousness of international brotherhood. But in the United States Senate we witnessed the League of Nations opposed for months on an utterly selfish and materialistic basis. There was on the part of its opponents not an utterance of idealism, not a note of altruism, no sense of the responsibility of a strong, virile nation to promote brotherhood in the family of nations, no sense of national obligation to serve, no willingness to sacrifice any selfish material interest for the larger good for which our boys died. Is the time for noble deeds, for brotherly spirit, for sacrificing helpfulness, over because we are no longer in arms? Are we a Christian nation?
