Universalist Quote of the Day #175

“Contemplate Jesus Christ in all the course of his earthly ministry, and if the record is sure, if it is not an imposition on human credulity, a mockery of human hopes, an insult to human reason, and a violation of all the laws of historic development, nay, if Christ is to be believed at all, then God was in him as he was never in any other being since the world began.  And he was in him for the sublime and beneficent purpose mentioned by St. Paul: ‘Having made peace by the blood of the cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself.’  The fulness of Christ means fulness of redemption.  And, if there be any force or truth in Scripture, he must reign until he hath put all enemies under his feet, until he hath put down all rule, and all authority and power.  In this glorious consummation he will exemplify the fulness of his saving power.”

–Rev. Joseph Oberlin Skinner
