Is there no other alternative to the Communist way of violence for its realization but the ineffective way of Christian preaching? Must the Churches be forever content with plucking brands out of the fire and abandon the world- order as beyond redemption? Is there not the way of the Gross yet to be tried in seeking to realize God's Kingdom on earth? And is not the application of that way to the everyday problems of life, to the solution even of political questions, what this great non-Christian shows in his method of satyagraha?
W. E. Hocking, Rethinking Missions. 2. "Biblical realism” regards the Bible as a unique revelation of God, a revelation not through the enlightened mind or conscience of man; but as the record of God's breaking into human history in certain revelatory acts. It demands not understanding but faith on the part of man, unquestioning acceptance of these as acts of God. This sets up an unreal conflict between faith and reason. But faith need not run counter to reason, though it may go beyond it — "Faith is reason grown courageous" — No revelation can take the place of thought.
It has dared to picture God as a Person, as Man at his highest and best and thus to exalt man. But in doing this it puts man almost at the centre of the Universe, making the redemption of his individuality and its survival the central theme of its message. Its naive dualism of Good and Evil, struggling for the possession of the individual soul, satisfied it in its early days; but it has had to make continuous adjustments with ever-increasing human knowledge. But, as its wisest exponents realize, its strength lies not in explaining the World or Evil, but in overcoming them.
