Signs of the Times

[Rev. J. Alfred Kaye, in the Hornsey Journal, London, England, Dec. 26, 1924]

The minister's sermon was based on the text, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." He said that here was the full message of Christmas and the whole meaning of the Incarnation. Two of the many things the Incarnation taught us were the truth about God and the truth about man—the pivotal truths upon which the world swung. Mr. Kaye spoke of a boy who had said that he loved Jesus but hated God. Obviously, said the minister, that boy had been taught to regard God as a kind of big policeman, who was waiting to run him in. Probably he had heard his minister say of some great disaster . . . that it was an act of God. God's will was always loving, noble, and good. The fact of the matter was that we confused tremendously the will of God and the result of our sins. To God the barriers of power and culture, nationality and creed, were all artificial. All life was precious in His sight: all mankind were the children of God.
