Excerpt from The Gospel in Pagan Religions: Some Thoughts Suggested by the World's Parliament of Religions to an Orthodox Christian
With this declaration of the most orthodox and evangelical of Christian preachers the following words of the Hindu, Swami Vivekananda, fall into sweetest accord. He says: The same light shines through all colors, and in the heart of everything the same truth reigns. The Lord hath declared to the Hindu in his incarnation as Krishna, 'i am in every religion as the thread through a string of pearls, and wherever thou seest extraordinary holiness, and extraordinary power, raismg and purifying humanity, know ye that I am there.' This book has been written, and it is now sent forth to the world, in the Spirit of the words of the Rev. Dr. John Henry Barrows, under whose large-hearted sympathies and broad-minded views the Columbian Parliament of the World's Religions was assembled and successfully conducted; he says: It is perfectly evident to all illuminated minds that we should cherish loving thoughts of all people, and humane views of all the great and lasting religions, and whoever would ad vance the cause of his own faith, must discover and gratefully acknowledge the truths contained in other faiths.
