Excerpt from Christ as a Teacher
Jesus move the world. An Aristotle may sway the human mind for ages, but he must ere long drop the scepter; Christ extends his moral dominion with every revolving year. The words of Zoroaster, Confucius, Mohammed, abide not the light; the words of Christ make light, and make it more and more abound. Scott, Baxter, Byron, can move only a particular frame of mind and tone of heart; the Saviour reaches the mind in all its frames, the heart in all its tones. Every principle he announces has a world-wide sweep. Lviark his summary of the law: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy mind, etc.-a precept so narrow as to measure the smallest thought of the smallest man; so broad as to compass the mightiest outgoings of the largest angel; so perfect as to bind all moral beings to the throne of God, and produce eternal and universal harmony and happiness and progress. Mark, too, his revelation of God: God so loved the world, etc. Neither the element - love; nor the measure - the gift of his only. Begotten; nor the purpose - the whosoever - can be exceeded even in conception.
