Excerpt from What Is Christianity?: The Russell Lecture of 1904 Delivered Before the Faculties and Students of Tufts College
Of course it must be remembered that many eminent men hold that the sum total of human good is Christian in its source; but it seems to me that such an over zeal ous claim has always been a positive harm to the Christian cause. Claims thus in definite give to Christianity no specific working principle. By confounding the essential Christian principle with its inci dental good results, we place a great burden on Christianity. Suppose, for example, to the question, What is the mission of Christianity? It is replied, Christ is our Saviour, or Christ is our Saviour from sin, the reply does not help the ques tioner. In what sense is he our Saviour? Does he save us from everything evil? Does he save us from disease? Was his mission to save us from the coal trusts, from gray hair, from typhoid fever, from the need of food Does Christ's mission fail if the sick man is not saved from work.
