Universalist Quote of the Day #187

“Universalism puts Adam at the foot of the ladder, and makes it the end and aim of every life to climb as far away from him as may be possible.  ‘Forward unto perfection,’ not backward to credulity, to childhood, ‘leaving behind the things of the past,’ we press forward to a nobler stature and a better life than the world has ever seen.

The Universalist faith is in marked sympathy with the grand law that evolved the higher from the lower,–this law which has only fought its way to general acceptance in our own times.”

–Rev. A Gunnison
