Signs of the Times

The Rev. Stuart W. McWilliam, M.A., S.T.M., in an article in The Expository Times Aberdeen, Scotland

There are many kinds of power in the world: the power of economics, the power of the sword, the power of intellect. They have their place and their function, but unless they are subordinate to love they are useless. That is what we need, economics dictated by love, so that men are not regarded as units of labor, or higher and lower income groups, or numbers in a complex filing system, but people, to be loved and served.

If you want to see men treated as persons, you must choose an economic system in which the love of God and man is the end. We need intellect, controlled and guided by love, so that science and art and literature will minister to the needs of men and not to their destruction. The greatest power in the world is the power of love, and the greatest love is the love of God.
