Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...will not seek only to apply the salve of charity to the open wounds of the evil, but to discover the seat of the disease, that it may heal it thoroughly; to find the unjust practices whereby the strong have been able to take advantage of the weak; the instrument wherewith they have brought them into subjection. And this is in exact agreement with the work of God. While men believed that the salvation brought by Christ was merely a mitigation of the sins of mankind, a cure applied here and there to the sufferings of some out of many sinners, it was natural that the charitable should try to do good here and there, and to alleviate the worst cases of suffering with which they came in contact. But when we see that the true scope of God's work, through Christ, is the taking away the sin of the world, the actual cure of the disease itself, we recognize that the work laid upon Christians is to find out and remove the unjust conditions which are at the root of the misery of the world; and to do, upon the natural plane of this world, what He is doing upon the spiritual plane of the soul. So we may give practical effect to the petition, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven." I have no doubt that the time is at hand when the Churches will recognize that this is their true work; and when they will find that not only will they win back the allegiance of the masses who now hold aloof from them, by earnestly working for the setting right of social relations, but also that they will thus, by acting up to the principles of the brotherhood of man, lead mankind to recognize and appreciate the Fatherhood of God.
