Universalist Quote of the Day #172

“The particular aspect of Universalism most attractive to me is its presentation of the unity of the Universal.  It is not simply All, but All in one.  Not segregation, but unity, is the underlying thought.  Because God is the common father, therefore all men are brethren; because all men are brethren, therefore the obligation of common and equal love; because of the universal obligation of the law of love, therefore all violations bring certain retribution; because the retributions of a common Father are remedial, therefore the final recovery or salvation of all men; and because of the final salvation of all men, therefore the preservation of the universal unity,–God all in all.  All successful reforms, and all true philanthropy, whether in Church or State, and whether recognized or not, rest on this immovable basis.”

–Rev. William Wallace Curry
