Don’t Mistake Why the Church Exists

“The man who supposes the Church exists simply to serve the interests of some social formula mistakes its nature. It does not exist to pull particular social chestnuts out of the fire. It is the genius of the Church to make free minds committed to the loftiest principles and then to release their force upon the world.”

Lynn Harold Hough, Free Minds, The Abingdon Press, New York, Cincinnati, Chicago, 1939, pg.94
