Page 149 - Mere spirituality seems to exhaust the soil that rears it, so that Christianity must always gain much from extraneous sources. It does so, in our own day, from science and general social progress. These are its friends, though sometimes disguised ones ; and Christ still gathers where he did not straw, and reaps where he did not sow.
Page 52 - And as is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy; and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
Page 143 - Except ye be converted and become like little children, ye cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.
