Signs of the Times

[Rev. T. H. DuVernet, in the Canadian Churchman, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Jan. 3, 1924]

If God were to cease His activity, He would cease to be known. The trouble with many regular churchgoers is that their philosophy is not worthy of their religion. They think of God in terms of matter. They limit Him in size with the three dimensions. They locate Him above in some distant star. They place Him upon some golden throne. They are utterly at a loss to know how to relate God to the universe and the universe to God. In religion, they may be orthodox Christians, but in philosophy they are antiquated materialists. They are alarmed about the progress of science, because they think that science will rob them of their God. ... Paul says there is "one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." ... The spirit of Christ, who is the supreme revelation of God, can permeate our inmost soul and transform our character. If we will only observe the law of ... spiritual harmony, we can ... enter into fellowship with one another. What could be more practical than this?
