Topic: Seeking for God and His Christ
[William T. Ellis, in the Globe-Democrat, St. Louis, Missouri]
Slowly the conviction is growing among thoughtful folk that much of our current talk—about the great themes of peace and social justice and a remade world— is really superficial. We are engrossed with slogans, and readymade schemes of "a new world order," and with organizations and cliques. We talk like the bandarlog, assuming that our much chattering will bring great goals to pass. We are in a word-plagued era.
Disillusioned with the common mood, we glimpse the great truth that the only way to the desirable things we dream and discuss is by recognition of the nature of man and of God. Since there is an eternal Ruler of the universe, mankind, one by one, must accept and know Him, before we can escape out of the world-wide slough into which our smallness and selfishness and sin have led us.
