The Unity of
Religion and Science
We may think of
science as one wing and religion as the other; a bird needs two wings
for flight, one alone would be useless. Any religion that contradicts
science or that is opposed to it, is only ignorance - for ignorance is
the opposite of knowledge.
Religion which consists only of rites and ceremonies of prejudice is
not the truth.
Men and Women
Women have equal
rights with men upon earth; in religion and society they are a very
important element. As long as women are prevented from attaining their
highest possibilities, so long will men be unable to achieve the
greatness which might be theirs.
and the Spiritual
No matter how the
material world may progress, no matter how splendidly it may adorn
itself, it can never be anything but a lifeless body unless the soul is
within, for it is the soul that animates the body; the body alone has
no real significance. Deprived of the blessings of the Holy Spirit the
material body would be inert.
