I am not sufficiently acquainted with your program to know what phases of this question have been covered or what subjects are to be treated by those who speak after me. Yet we are all so different in method of expression and in mode of thought, even when we are one in purpose and desire, that each, viewing it from his own point of view, can present just a little different line of thought from others.I thought that I would speak of the forces that are back of this movement, for one cannot understand the strength of a movement, nor can he judge of its permanency, unless he knows the reasons back of it.

In law school we read the maxim, He knoweth not the law who knoweth not the reason thereof. So he cannot accurately judge of the strength of this movement unless he understands that back of it are forces which are universal, which are continuous in their operation and which are irresistible. My faith in this movement rests upon the belief that the forces back of it must of necessity bring it to triumph, and faith is in itself a great motive power.

One cannot please God, we are told, without faith, and I think that is a very conservative statement. I think I might make it stronger than that, and say that without faith it is not only impossible to please God, but impossible to do anything else of importance. Unless one believes, he cannot act with enthusiasm, nor can he lead others to believe.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
