Universalist Quote of the Day #164

“Our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ seems to be much stronger than the creeds of men will allow is consistent with ‘sound orthodoxy.’  But we simply accept in good faith what he himself declared, and what others have said of him and his mission.  In plain and unmistakable language he said to his disciples, ‘If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me.’  Paul says of him, ‘He must reign till he hath put all enemies under his feet.’  Our faith does not go beyond these plain assertions of the Scriptures: it finds full warrant in the declarations of many inspired teachers who spake with authority.  We are only taking the Bible at its word, and simply believing what it plainly teaches.”

–Rev. Sanford Preston Smith
