Excerpt from The Chinese Recorder and Missionary Journal, 1913, Vol. 44
In cases not a few, the Christian Churches are invited to take them over with consequences unknown and incapable of being foreseen. Is there funded wisdom enough in the Churches to deal wisely with these temptations, judging discreetly between things which differ - however alike they may appear upon the surface? How is the Church to be prevented from accumulating cos/z reserves, lending them out at high rates of interest to favored borrowers, and then meeting disaster when principal and interest are alike submerged? Once such a catastrophe has occurred how is the Church to recover itself? Indeed, the debtors will generally see to it that no reconstruo tion ever takes place lest there be an accounting. Is this not a real and a pressing danger to Chinese Christianity now?
