The Monitor's View: Quote (3)

I believe that every problem in the world today could be solved if men would only live by the principles of the ancient prophets and the Sermon on the Mount.

Religion is not a static thing. It exists not in buildings, but in the minds and hearts of our people. Religion is like freedom. We cannot take it for granted. Man, to be free, must work at it. And man, to be truly religious, must work at that, too. Unless men live by their faith, and practice that faith in their daily lives, religion cannot be a living force in the world today.
