"Where is your faith?"

[From Advance, Boston]

Rightly, prophetic voices are calling upon men to have faith in God in these days when war clouds are trying to shut out the light of heaven. If we have faith in God, must we not also have faith in man —the sort of faith in man that Jesus had? The faith that Jesus had in man was not a blind faith. ...He saw man as made in the image of God the object of his Maker's love and grace, and when he pictured the restoration of a prodigal, far gone down the gamut of sin and folly, the first stage in his restoration was "when he came to himself." It is man's coming to himself that is always the first step in his coming to God. Have faith in man! His downfall today is as much a betrayal of himself, as a betrayal of the God who made him.
