THE “force” which represents Christianity is the Holy Spirit.
THE blood that counts in the Christian warfare is the blood of Christ.
THE best protective armor that was ever devised is the “shield of faith.”
NO law of man ever contributed to the stability of the government of heaven.
THE best declaration of independence is an acknowledgment of dependence on God.
THERE is tremendous power in a thirteen-inch shell, fired from a modern navy cannon; but there is infinitely great power in one word of God.
THE church is about the only body of intelligent people in civilized lands who cannot see that the future of the world is dark with the clouds of war.
