Faith will not be restored in the West because people believe it to be useful. It will return only when they find that it is true.
-Barbara Ward, Faith and Freedom, 1954
Unless the city of God pre-exists in heaven it cannot descend to earth. Therefore those who deny that Divine city cannot build on earth the city of their dreams.
-E. I. Watkin, Men and Tendencies, 1937
Rend your hearts, not your garments,
and return to the LORD, your God,
For he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love,
and relenting in punishment.
